New Cat Photo Contest – Purina Sponsors “Special Occasion” Cat Picture Competition

Posted on July 8th, 2013

purina21695_PhotoContest_logo_v2.jpg (2)Your cat is a special member of your family, so it’s only natural to include him/her in special occasions – weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, holidays, really just about any occasion that is considered to be special…

(*BTW – check out the most recent issue of Purina PURR for some tips on how to incorporate your kitty into your wedding.)Wedding

Inspired by this notion, I, along with Purina and a select few other bloggers, would like to announce a cat photo contest – and you don’t have much time to enter so read on now!

I want you to submit your pictures to me; pictures of cats enjoying a special occasion – it can be any of the aforementioned events – I’m completely open-ended as to what a “special occasion” means.

You can send a picture of kitty at your birthday, on your wedding day, at Christmas, at Halloween, etc. Get CREATIVE!


Because the winners get AWESOME prizes!!!!

Winners will receive 4 free individual packs which include a can of Fancy Feast Chicken Feast in Gravy as well as a “buy 3, get 1 free” coupon redeemable at Petco.

Purina will feature at least three photos from all winners in the Fall issue of PURR.

FFAdditionally, Petco will feature at least one photo winner from each blog in a photo album on their Facebook page!!! Their page currently has 2,245,586 fans!

The kicker is that you only have one week, starting today, to get your photos to me so I can post them and get them to Purina.


Please send photos to Please put “Special Occasion Cat Photo Contest” in the subject line so I know right away to post your cat pic.

I will be putting up these photos as I receive them. There is no audience voting being taken into consideration here but feel free to comment on your fave cat pics!

Again, this contest runs from today, July 8, through next Monday, July 15 at 6 pm EST.

Good luck and GET CREATIVE!
