Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month Photo Contest
The Art of the Cat Nap: Photos of Kitty in Unusual Sleeping Spots
Yaaaaaaaaaaaawn! Is it naptime yet? Odds are it is for Kitty, since the average cat spends more time sleeping than she spends awake! (They don’t call them “cat naps” for nothing.) And when it comes to catching Z’s, cats are better at falling asleep in weird places than Navy Seals. We know cats who have napped in the bell of a tuba, on an elliptical machine pedal and even on a dog’s back!
So, in honor of Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month, we’re announcing the Art of the Cat Nap: Photos of Kitty in Unusual Sleeping Spots photo contest! Throughout the month, we’re accepting your photos of kitties sleeping in unexpected places. We want to see your snapshot of Whiskers fast asleep in the silliest place you’ve ever caught him dozing—the funnier, the better!
To enter the contest, send firstname.lastname@example.org your kitty’s best catnap photo and 100 words or less about her favorite place to sleep. We’ll announce the five winners in mid-July.
