The contest from Sergeant’s® Pet Care Products and the Morris Animal Foundation is in celebration of the organization’s annual campaign which shines a spotlight on the subject of feline health.

  • Happy, Healthy Cat– images of cats that represent the contest’s theme.
  • My Favorite Human– Photos of felines with their favorite family members.
  • My Favorite K9– Photos of felines with their favorite Fido, to illustrate the bonds of friendship between cats and their barking buddies.

Finalists in each category will be reviewed by Betty White, who will decide on the Grand Prize winner and runners up. The Grand Prize winner will be featured on the cover of AnimalNews and highlighted in an article in the publication from Morris Animal Foundation, as well as a gift card to PetSmart and a gift assortment of cat products from Sergeant’s Pet Care Products. The runners up will receive gift cards and gift assortments.

“Cats are wonderful pets and sometimes don’t get the respect they deserve. They make you laugh and they can laugh with you. They can be the best friends in the world,” said Betty White, an avid animal advocate and strong supporter of Morris Animal Foundation. “Send your photos in now, while you’re thinking about it! We want to see those happy, healthy kitties!”
