The Friskies cat video awards were so much fun last year that they are having it again this year! Hopefuls submitted their clips a few weeks ago, and the semi-finalists were just announced. There are four categories: Cat Comedy, Catventure, Pursuit of Food/ Treat (maybe I should have entered Binga in that one!), and Rescue Cat, and each category has five finalists. I am happy to say that my late friend, Gracie of the Tiniest Tiger, is one of the competitors in the Catventure category.
It is up to you viewers to vote for the 12 videos that will make it to the finals, and the award show will be held October 15, 2013 in New York City. The winning video in each category and a Fan Favorite will win a total of $25,000 in cash prizes and gold-plated Catuette trophies! To vote for your favorites, go to The Friskies website — you can vote once in each category every day until noon Eastern Time September 16.
Here is the really cool part about voting: for every video vote at The Friskies website, Friskies will donate a can of cat food to the The Friskies’ cat charity partners, up to 25,000 cans to their 20 partners. This is part of the part of the “Share to Care” program, and Friskies is hoping to surpass 250,000 cans of donated food in total during the voting period!
I have a couple of videos that I like a lot. In the Cat Comedy category, here is a kitty who has an issue with the printer. You have to watch it ’til the end. Trust me on this. Don’t worry, it’s only 33 seconds long.

I also liked this wacky take on game shows in the Pursuit of Food/ Treat category. Liddy Cat is an enthusiastic contestant!
