Take a Cat Nap for a Cause to Support Breast Cancer Awareness and Enter This Giveaway for Purina Cat Chow
Posted Oct 28 2010 8:16am
We recently adopted two kittens, and I can testify to the joy they’ve brought to our household. They love to snuggle up in our laps and purr with pleasure when we pet them. We can’t help but smile when we spend time with them. Having cats can be especially beneficial during difficult times. A recent Purina Cat Chow national survey of breast cancer survivors with cats showed that more than 84 percent of respondents felt their cat had a calming effect during their battle with breast cancer, and nearly seven out of 10 said their cats were a source of comfort when battling the disease. Inspired by these findings, Purina Cat Chow has established a relationship with Susan G. Komen for the Cure to honor the unique bond between cat owners and their cats.
Their new campaign, called Cat Nap for the Cause, invites breast cancer awareness supporters to take a 20-minute cat nap to support breast cancer research. For each “cat napper” who signs up on their Facebook page , Purina Cat Chow will donate $2 up to $150,000 -- on top of their 2010 donation of $200,000 -- directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Actress Kate Walsh has teamed up with Purina Cat Chow as the spokesperson for Cat Nap for the Cause. Her mother is a more than 10-year breast cancer survivor. Along with other celebrity supporters, Kate is donating personalized blankets, perfect for a cat nap, to raise awareness for the campaign.
