This post is sponsored by Purina, who is providing the calendar for our giveaway.
Purina Pro Plan set out to shred perceptions of both traditional cat food and the typical cat owner with the Purina Pro Plan #MenAndCatsContest, for the launch of Savor Shredded Blend.
Shredded Blend is an all-new mealtime experience that combines crunchy kibble and tender meaty shreds to provide both extraordinary nutrition and exceptional taste. The best of both dry and wet foods to delight your cat!
Cat lovers were asked to share a photo of an extraordinary man and his cat on Instagram or Twitter. 11 winners were selected that best captured the relationship between man and cat and will represent each month of the 2016 Extraordinary Men and Cats Calendar, along with proud cat guy and “Devious Maids” actor Gilles Marini.
This isn’t just a lot of great looking guys and fabulous felines though! The calendars will be donated as a fundraising initiative to Purina Pro Plan Rally to Rescue, a network of hundreds of small rescue groups nationwide, allowing them to raise money for their organizations as they work to give all cats the love, care and forever homes they deserve. And we have a calendar to giveaway to a lucky reader!
