Celebrity Judge Betty White Chooses Winning Cat Photograph for Contest

Cats are notoriously hard to photograph, but the results can be well worth the effort. This was certainly the case for Morris Animal Foundation’s first Happy Healthy Cat Photo Contest, sponsored by Sergeant’s Pet Care Products and judged by longtime foundation trustee and actor Betty White.     

Hundreds of funny, outrageous and adorable cat photos were submitted to the Happy Healthy Cat Campaign’s and Sergeant’s contest websites. Only the best of the best made it to the final round and were sent to Betty White to be judged.

Brittany Carper of Seguin, Texas, took the grand prize for her picture of two kittens drowsing on a blanket. Her photo will be the cover photo of Morris Animal Foundation’s publication, AnimalNews, and she will receive a gift card to Petco and an assortment of pet products from Sergeant’s. Runners up were a photo from Jane Kirkland, of Downingtown, Pennsylvania, of a happy-go-lucky cat and dog enjoying an afternoon in a canoe, and a quintessential image of the bond between cat and man from Lauren Parry, of Riverton, New Jersey.
