This week, a nationwide search for the most passionate feline families begins. Fresh Step litter and Animal Planet’s new series “Must Love Cats” have launched the Feline Fanatics Contest. The grand prize winner will receive special recognition, including an appearance with their “glamour puss” during an upcoming episode of “Must Love Cats,” an editorial feature in Star Magazine and a year supply of Fresh Step litter.
“Must Love Cats” celebrates fascinating felines and the fascinating people who love them, according to Animal Planet. From cats that saved their owners’ lives to swanky cat-only hotels, the series covers all things cat. It offers many amazing feline stories with factoids and trivia. Musician John Fulton hosts the show and will act as a judge for the “Feline Fanatics” contest.
“While filming ‘Must Love Cats,’ I’ve seen that feline families are a devoted breed,” Fulton said.“Among countless others, I met a man who threw his meowing buddy a 200-person birthday bash complete with a cat fashion show. We’re hosting this contest for all feline fanatics in America so we can find and honor the everyday people doing extraordinary things for their cats.”
Nominations for the Feline Fanatics contest will be accepted from now until Oct. 17 here or here. Entrants upload one photo of their cat and share a brief description that answers why they qualify as a “Feline Fanatic.” This contest rewards those who do great things for their cats, not necessarily to them; those who simply dress up their felines in costumes and call that love won’t beat out those who take it to another level and build their cat(s) a palace, the network says.
Following the entry period, a panel of judges from Animal Planet and Fresh Step litter will select five finalists who will compete in online voting to become the ultimate Feline Fanatic. America will select the winner by voting for its favorite finalist once a day on the Fresh Step litter page on Facebook from Nov. 9 to 29.
The ultimate Feline Fanatic and cat duo will win an appearance during an upcoming episode of “Must Love Cats,” an editorial feature in Star Magazine and a year supply of Fresh Step litter with its unique odor-eliminating carbon formula. The four Feline Fanatic runners-up will each receive a year supply of Fresh Step litter as well.
