“This is our sixth year with our online photo contest that helps us create our sought after Glamour Puss Calendar,” said Jan Rich, For the Love of Cats founder. “Last year, we had over 120 photo entries and we expect to have even more this year. Our supporters have been telling us that they have special photos saved for the competition so we are expecting some great kitty pics this year. The voting is the fun part and everyone gets involved in bringing attention to their favorite photos. Of course, the real winners are the cats and kittens in need from our community. They are the beneficiaries of all this generosity and enthusiasm from our supporters. Their purrs of gratitude can be heard loud and clear so give us your best shot!”
