Today, we’re kicking off a series of articles and interviews on traveling with your cat to help you prepare for summer travel in case Fluffy is part of your plans. Or, maybe you’re taking baby steps and will see how your cat does during “Take Your Pet to Work Week,” on June 14 – 20. We can help with that, too!

Our friends at Iams are sponsoring a contest on The Cat’s Meow, offering the winner a spectacular gift package that will keep your cat healthy and happy when you’re traveling together — or even if you’re planning a staycation this year:

    Two Bags of Iams Cat Food (3.5 lb.)
    Irish Air-Tight Pet Food Storage Container
    Whisker City Plush Cat Bed
    Classy Kitty Carpeted Scratching Post
    DuraScoop Large Cat Litter Scoop
    Bamboo 3-in-1 Pedicure Set for Cats
    Whisker City Safety Stretch Cat Collars (Available in multiple colors)
    Groomax Brush & Slicker Combo for Cats
    ToyShoppe Teaser Wands
    Petlinks System 3 Blind Mice Cat Toys
    Animal Planet Crinkle Tunnel Cat Toy
    Catellite Cat Toy

If you’re the winner, in addition to all that loot, you’ll also have a cat bed donated in your name to a local Iams Home for the Holidays shelter.

It’s easy! Just leave a comment in this post, and/or in each “Road Trip” post (with a “Road Trip” graphic at the top of the post) between now and June 20th. Be sure not to miss an eligible post: sign up to have The Cat’s Meow delivered straight to your email.

Eligible Posts (leave a comment in each for a total of four entries). More posts added daily:


  • Only one cat/person per household can submit an entry/comment for each post.
  • You can leave one comment (entry) in each of every “Road Trip” post. If there are 10 “Road Trip” posts, you can submit one comment/entry on each of those posts for a total of ten entries.
  • Be sure to leave a valid email address when you leave your comment (email addresses are not published). If the winner we draw has an invalid email address, the entry will be disqualified and another winner will be drawn.
  • We reserve the right to disqualify entries if it looks like you’re cheating.

Winner will be drawn at random from all comments left on “Road Trip” posts between now and June 20th.
