We've had a lot of interest on the Toronto Board Games mailing list, and elsewhere in the Catan games, and so we'll be sure to give that a play. In addition, Chris figured out 'Sharur Evolutions', the French game he got when we demoed for Foxmind 2 months ago, and has done a few demos of it in Waterloo, with people liking it a lot. It has some of the same 'game feel' as Catan, though since Sharur is the god of War in that alternate universe, it's a little more prone to solving your problems by beating on people.
There are 2 cats in the house, but they can be segregated from the people. However, the house is cat-danderiffic. I live on Jameson, and will provide complete address and directions to anyone who RSVPs. For those of you who have been here before, RSVPs would still be nice ;-). We're easily gotten to off the Gardiner, the 508 King Streetcar (runs until 3-4 am) or the 24-hour 504 Queen Streetcar. My phone # is 416-725-8651.

Plus a 'Pick a Path to Romance' book that Chris bought me on eBay, if you want to laugh at it. And you do.
