ST. LOUIS Every cat owner has a story, and now they have a place to share their cat anecdotes. Purina Cat Chow has launched the "Purina Cat Chow Real Stories Project Contest," a nationwide search to find, showcase and celebrate cat stories that highlight the special relationship between cat people and their cats, as well as the many ways our cats are always there for us.
The contest is open until July 31. To participate, submit a story at www.yourcatstory.com. Five grand prize winners each will receive a $5,000 cash prize, a one-year supply of Purina Cat Chow brand cat food for one cat, and have their stories told through a Purina Cat Chow brand online video. The winners' videos will be shared online with the Purina Cat Chow Community on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
Purina Cat Chow will also recognize the cat relationship stories of five runners-up with a $1,000 cash prize each and one-year supply of Purina Cat Chow brand cat food for one cat.
In addition, 40 stories will receive an honorable mention and a $100 gift card.
Winners will be announced about Oct. 1.
