Cat videos are hot. Last year, more than 10,000 people gathered at the first annual Internet Cat Video Film Festival in Minnesota, and the Walker Center, which is sponsoring the event again this year, is hoping to repeat or exceed those numbers.

Does your cat have what it takes to be an internet video star? If you think your talented feline should be famous, you can submit your video in the Friskies Video Contest for a chance to win $25,000 in cash prizes! The contest also benefits rescue and shelter cats across the country. Friskies is donating more than 250,000 cans of cat food to 20 partner animal rescue organizations. Each organization will receive a minimum of 7,500 cans and will have the opportunity to increase this donation (up to an additional 10,000 cans per charity) based on their overall participation.

Visit to find out how to submit your video. Entry deadline is July 15, 2013.

Will you be submitting a video of your cat for the contest?

A note from Ingrid: While my philosophy and point of view about feline nutrition differs from that of Friskies, we do share a common goal to promote responsible cat care, humane education, and the positive bond between cats and humans.

7 Comments on Your Cat Could Be a Video Star and Win $25,000

  1. I agree with Ingrid (and Kent) that cats should not be dressed up in any way. Plus, some of those tricks look like the cat is not enjoying them. BUT I can get Chelsea off the table and onto a chair and off the chair onto the floor when I’m eating, by handsignals, inidcating “down.” She could be a star but her mom is no stage mother so forget it. I wish I had taped Maxxie sneaking up on his waterbowl, pawing the ground around it, smelling it and carefully lowering his nose into the water. That was funny. Maxxie is gone now but not forgotten.
