Fresh Step Cat Video Contest Almost Over

How can anyone not love these furry little critters?!? Entries from the Fresh Step contest will change anyone’s mind.

I entered the Fresh Step contest about a month ago, and have been checking back routinely to see the competition that my little Bridget is up against. Long and short of it: her chances might be getting sort of slim.

For those of you who don’t know or haven’t been reading Fresh Step has been running a contest where anyone can upload their video of their cat doing something silly, cute, crazy, awesome, beautiful, funny, whatever to the Fresh Step YouTube page and have a chance at their cat being featured in a national Fresh Step advertisement. If you want to enter simply click here – http://www.youtube.com/freshstep – and follow the instructions at the top right hand part of the page.

I’m not sure how anyone could see some of these entries and not adore cats.

  • Watch this one for instance:
    Really?!? I have a new meaning in my life and some people still complain that cats are no fun?
  • Or this:
    Honestly, there is a reason cats have been such a perennial favorite pet. They are smart, clean, fun to watch, fun to pet, and just so awesome to have around. Some people say they don’t do anything or they don’t obey, but clearly the first part is not true and the second part is just part of their nature. They may not obey, but as all us cat lovers know, they are still loyal and loving.
  • Check out this final entry from the contest:

Those three are my favorites. Though I love Bridget I maintain that she has some tough competition from some of you guys, but the game is still afoot!

Cat Video Contest – Fresh Step

Check out the Animal-World entry to the Fresh Step contest!

Fresh Step is running a contest where anyone can enter a video of their cat doing something cute, funny, silly, crazy, beautiful, interesting, WHATEVER and have a chance to get their cat featured in a national advertisement!

I just put up my video of my cat, Bridget, doing what she normally does, acting the spoiled princess, and uploaded it to the contest page. Check it out here – Fresh Step Video Contest.

So what do guys think? The most difficult part isn’t finding times when she’s being a prissy or silly kitty, since she basically always does that, but actually having the camera around when she’s doing something video worthy. If you want to enter the contest but are finding it hard to capture that perfect moment, here’s a few tips:

  • Carry your camera with you at all times when your cat is around. You never know when your cat might do the cutest thing ever and you want to be prepared
  • Learn how to control your camera very well. Often cats get bored rather quickly with something, so be sure you can take your video quickly and not mess around with settings or hitting wrong buttons.
  • Either do things or provide things that you know interest or engage your cat. For me it was simply a matter of doing something Bridget hates: getting brushed! Once I start to brush her the video practically makes itself!
  • Finally, and most importantly, take lots of video! Even if your cat seems boring to you, other people might find it to be really cute or unique, so don’t be afraid to fill up your SD card! Then go over the videos and find something special.

So check out the contest, upload your cat, and good luck!

Awesome opportunity to get your cat some national attention with Fresh Step!

Dr. Jungle’s Animal World loves to let the world see just how adorable, fun, cute, awesome, and beautiful all of our pets are. Turns out we’re not the only ones!

Fresh Step cat litter is running a YouTube contest from now until March that will allow all of you cat lovers and sharers out there to put your precious friends up on YouTube with a chance of actually getting a spot in a national ad campaign! Finally, some recognition! So check out the contest here – http://www.youtube.com/freshstep – and upload a video of your cat doing something crazy, cute, or just plain interesting and see if they have what it takes to be a star!

It’s pretty simple to add your video, just go to the contest site and click the “Enter Your Cat Here” box on the top right hand side of the page. From there you can either submit a video that you have already uploaded to your YouTube account or you can upload a new video. Also, even if you’re not interested in actually putting up your cat or maybe you don’t even have a cat but just think they are funny, be sure to check out the videos others have put up! There’s something about watching a cat jump into a box or knocking over a baby or miscalculating a jump and ending up face-planting into a wall that just makes me smile. I’m sure it does you too! Have fun and good luck!
