Life's a Beach Giveaway Hop: Enter to Win a Vera Bradley Tote and Prizes for Your Cat from Cat's Pride ($75 Value)!

Welcome to the Life's a Beach Giveaway Hop hosted by The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island. Every blogger participating in this hop is giving away something that you can take to the beach! For my giveaway, I have a fantastic prize pack from Cat's Pride Fresh & Light Ultimate Care! First, let me tell you why Cat's Pride is offering this wonderful prize...

Oil-Dri Corporation of America, a leading manufacturer of quality cat litter and the inventor of lightweight litter, announces the launch of the new Cat’s Pride® Fresh & Light Ultimate Care®, a revolutionary litter that delivers the ultimate performance, including 10-day odor control, the strongest clumps and low tracking. Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light Ultimate Care is the best lightweight litter and is 50 percent lighter than traditional scoopable litters. The product is offered in a 10-pound jug, in both scented and unscented hypoallergenic varieties.

As part of the launch, Cat’s Pride® is partnering with award-winning actress Katherine Heigl, best known for her roles in “Grey’s Anatomy,” “27 Dresses,” and “Knocked Up,” as the face and voice of their campaign, "Cats Are Complicated. Great Litter Is Simple." In addition, Cat’s Pride is proud to support the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation™, by donating a portion of every Fresh & Light Ultimate Care purchase to support the Foundation’s animal advocacy work. The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation (JDHF) was founded in 2008 by Nancy and Katherine Heigl to increase awareness of inhumane animal treatment and support animal welfare efforts in this country. Established as a lasting legacy to a beloved son and brother killed as a teen in a tragic car accident, the JDHF is dedicated to helping companion animals by eliminating the needless suffering inflicted on animals by human cruelty, indifference and ignorance. Programs include the relocation of pets from high-kill to no-kill shelters for adoption, funding of sterilization for cats and dogs, medical and training assistance for special needs dogs, grants to hardworking “boots on the ground” rescues, and working with animal welfare groups nationwide to increase awareness of spay/neuter, humane education and adoption.

They like to act like they hate each other but I catch them together all of the time (and then they give me that deer-in-headlights look). I have had the older one since the literal day she was born. The younger one my husband and I adopted together. The older one was wild and crazy when she was younger but has mellowed out. The younger one loves to play fetch. Now we are in the process of moving and have all kinds of shelves and things cleared off that the younger one thinks is her jungle gym.. she is going to be disappointed when we move.

Her life must of been bad because she doesn't like anyone. On a bright side she LOVES her toys. I spoil her rotten and she has a whole room of toys and cat trees.
