Attention cat lovers! If you’re a fan of all things feline, we know you’ll be excited to hear about the Feline Arts Council, a new program from our longtime partner Fresh Step cat litter.
The Feline Arts Council, comprised of some of the utmost authorities on creative cat creations including ASPCA cat expert Eileen Hanavan, is on a mission to promote the paw-sitive representations of cats in mainstream culture. The Feline Arts Council will bestow its seal on America’s top purr-worthy products, which will be donated to the ASPCA and sold in our Online Store.
To kick off the program, the Council selected a handmade sterling silver cat ring, designed by Catherine Dmitrieva, owner of the Etsy shop KatStudio. The proceeds from each purchase of the limited-edition ring, available here in sizes 5-9, will benefit the ASPCA.
We’ll also be working with the Feline Arts Council to identify a special item to premiere at the 2014 Catdance Film Festival* on January 18 in Park City, Utah. The Council will award up to five artisans with $5,000 to help launch or advance their craft. Submit your cat-inspired passion project to the Feline Arts Council by Oct. 8, 2013.
