From cats on the big screen to kitty features in popular fashion pieces, the fair feline serves as a muse across all art forms. We are pleased to celebrate cat inspiration in the arts with our long-time partner Fresh Step®, which is supporting the ASPCA through its newly formed Feline Arts Council (FAC) and the 2014 Catdance Film Festival*.
The FAC—comprised of some of the utmost authorities on creative cat creations including ASPCA cat expert Eileen Hanavan—is on a mission to promote the paw-sitive representations of cats in mainstream culture. The FAC will bestow its seal on America’s top purr-worthy products, which will be donated to the ASPCA and sold on our store. To learn more about the FAC, visit www.freshstep.com/promotions/feline-arts-council-2013.
The first FAC honoree, a furrouciously cute handmade silver cat ring, is now available for $19.99. Check back starting in November for additional FAC-endorsed products, including one that will premiere at the 2014 Catdance Film Festival.
The Catdance Film Festival will celebrate the best in original short cat films hand-picked by the FAC from a nationwide search. Official selections will be available for screening at www.freshstep.com/catdance and finalist films will be released following the January 2014 feline-fete held in Park City, Utah. Stay tuned for more information about the festival and how you can cast your ballot to award top honors - the Fresh Step Golden Litter Scoop.
