Cat Nap for the Cause (Giveaway)

I’m a big supporter of cat napping.  If I get a chance to nap during the day, well I’m all over it, I can give any ‘cat’ a run for their money in the napping department!

Until the end of October, you can Cat Nap for the Cause, as Purina Cat Chow invites breast cancer awareness supporters to take a 20-minute cat nap to support breast cancer.

For each “cat napper” that 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!  All donations go directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Inspired by cancer survivors’ stories of the role their cats played during their battle with cancer, Purina Cat Chow first began a relationship with Susan G. Komen to honor the unique bond between cat owners and their cats.  In fact, a recent Purina Cat Chow national survey of breast cancer survivors with cats showed that more than 84% 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.

Actress Kate Walsh has teamed up with Purina Cat Chow as spokesperson for Cat Nap for the Cause!  Kate is not only a supporter – her mother is a breast cancer survivor.  Kate along with other celebrity supporters will donate personalized blankets, perfect for a cat nap, to raise awareness.  You can register for a chance to win a celebrity Cat Nap for the Cause blanket at


One reader will win a free coupon for a 16 oz. bag of Purina Cat Chow.

What is better than napping for a good cause?  Not much, it only takes a minute to sign up so visit and click “Cat Nap”.  There you can take the pledge to nap and $2 will be donated to Susan G. Komen, $1 for you and $1 for your cat.  The official nap date is over, but any day is a good day to nap especially when it’s for a good cause.
