We are casting for 3 different roles in Boston, MA and wanted to give you a heads up in case you or someone you recommend might be interested. We will be filming one day during the week of Feb 8th between 2pm and 10pm in a studio space. (Dates and Times
TBD). The filming will take about 30 minutes.

• We are looking to film cats and/or dogs WITH their owners. Are you a hard core
cat owners -- who think cats are the superior house pet and have an opinion
about it? Are you an opinionated dog lovers who would never in a million years
own a cat? If so, we want to hear from you! We are also okay with people who
have and love both dogs and cats but please tell us the pro and cons of having
both. We are happy to have singles, couples, and some children who are connected
to the hip of their furry friends. NOTE: Dogs and/or cats must be comfortable in
a studio setting with their owners.

• We are looking for puppies and kittens that are between the age of 6 to 15
weeks of age. These puppies and kittens will play with each other at the studio
– being cute and lovable with their new fluffy friends.

• We are looking for highly trained and relaxed adult dogs and cats. These dogs and cats will need to be able to stay on command and be good with other dogs and/or cats. We would love to get some group shots of dogs and cats sitting on a couchtogether looking friendly and relaxed.
