OMAHA, Neb., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- America's Golden Girl, Betty White, is joining forces with Sergeant's® Pet Care Products and Morris Animal Foundation for the "Happy, Healthy Cat Photo Contest." The contest celebrates Morris Animal Foundation's annual campaign to bring attention to feline health and features the wide range of products from Sergeant's Pet Care that promote happier, healthier lives for cats.
"Cats are wonderful pets and sometimes don't get the respect they deserve. They make you laugh and they can laugh with you. They can be the best friends in the world," said Betty White, an avid animal advocate and strong supporter of Morris Animal Foundation. She will serve as judge of the photo contest. "Send your photos in now, while you're thinking about it! We want to see those happy, healthy kitties!"
The contest will run from October 26 to December 15. Entries can be uploaded to sergeants.com and will be available to view in the contest photo gallery. Photos can be entered into one of three categories:
- The Happy, Healthy Cat category includes photos of cats that best represent the happy, healthy contest theme.
- The My Favorite Human category includes photos of cats with their favorite family, child or adult.
- The My Favorite K9 category includes photos of cats with their favorite dog, to show the bonds of friendship common between the species.
Finalists in each category will be reviewed by Betty White, who will choose the Grand Prize winner and runners up.

They will also receive a gift card to PetSmart and a gift assortment of products for cats from Sergeant's Pet Care Products. Runners up will also receive gift cards and gift assortments.
