Comedian Sapan Verma will host Romedy Now's #FurrentinesDate, a 'speed dating' initiative created for animal lovers on Valentine's Day, here later on Wednesday.

#FurrentinesDate is a property that will see furry ones play cupid by bringing together animal lovers to celebrate their love for pets and abandoned strays and help them find love in the process.

"I love cats and dogs, and the event is happening at Cat Caf Studio. I keep going there," Sapan told IANS.

And so, when he was asked to spend Valentine's Day with a bunch of cats, he took it up.

The event will see 30 Romedy Now fans (15 girls and 15 boys), with a common love for animals.

"And there will be lots of cats around. You have a conversation starter. If you are a pet lover, that is the first thing that will help to get along," he said.

#FurrentinesDate succeeds Furrentine's Day, which was launched last year with the concept of redefining love and encouraging people to celebrate Valentine's Day differently.

Sapan gives a thumbs up to adoption of stray cats.

"I know a lot of people who buy Persian cats. If you look around your building, you will find so many dogs and cats looking for food and shelter. So, it will be nice to see people adopting cats," he said.

But he has a little advice.

"I don't have a pet. It is because of my lifestyle. At least 20 days in a month, I am travelling. As a pet lover, you should be able to take care of your pet also. If you are not able to take care of them, then don't adopt them," said the comedian, who will soon perform in Jaipur.
