We’re celebrating Halloween all week, and you’ll have a chance to win big in The Cat’s Meow’s Halloween Purrade and Photo Contest.

Grand Purrize Package:

  • 50 zealies
  • $25 gift card. Winner’s choice of PetSmart, Petco, Amazon or Shutterfly.
  • Trophy*

Eligibility:

  • Each entrant must have a Catster profile page or a cat blog.
  • All cats in any household may enter, but only one cat per household can be a finalist.
  • Photos that are enhanced using a software graphics program are eligible. However, judges will consider the significant degree of difficulty involved in posing a cat in an actual costume when selecting finalists. A well-executed non-Photoshopped entry will place higher than a similarly well-executed Photoshopped entry.
  • Photoshopped entries that include a cat’s head on a human body are ineligible to participate in the purrade or receive a prize.
