Pet bloggers create furry incarnations of celebrities to compete in a contest in honor of National Hairball Awareness Day. We hear that the competition might get a little hairy!

Now this is the only kind of fur a celebrity should be wearing! Friday, April 27, is National Hairball Awareness Day and to celebrate, FURminator is hosting a celebrity-themed fur creature contest!

The ultimate in pet fur products has invited more than 30 pet bloggers to create and showcase furry incarnations of their favorite celebrities. Submissions are also featured on FURminator’s Facebook page, where fans are invited to vote on the top five fur creatures until April 20. The winner will be announced on April 27 in honor of National Hairball Awareness Day and awarded $1,000 to his or her favorite animal charity.

Celebrity hair-a-likes include Angelina Jolie, Justin Bieber, and Conan O’Brien. We think they’ve never looked better!

Catster’s own Stephanie Harwin entered her hairy rendition of “Katy Purry” (pictured up top), so make sure to check out her creation as well as the other entries! And remember: It’s better to prevent hairballs from happening by removing shedding fur from your kitty’s coat so you don’t have to feed your feline icky gels or lubricants.
