What’s so great about a cat? Purina Pro Plan Cat explores this question through a series of cat portraits shot by photographer Jessica Trinh, and our cat Victor was one of the lucky felines chosen to be a part of the #mygreatcat campaign. A few weeks ago the Purina team and Jessica came to our bungalow for a little photo session and Q+A about our love of cats, adoption and what makes Victor so great! Out of so many great qualities, Victor’s intuition, curiosity, and sensory nature stood out to the team and jotted down a few things Christopher had to say about Victor:
“I just think cats are so unique. They’re like little people that pick up qualities from their owners. He gets his social butterfly-ness from Eileen. But he can be a little bossy sometimes, too. He keeps everyone in line, us and the dog included. If our dog Rusty gets out of hand, Victor will bop him on the head. He just gives him a look that he knows. He likes to prance around and thinks he’s very refined and sophisticated. He is also a master escape artist.”
Last weekend in Union Square, Purina teamed up with the folks from @cats_of_instagram for a day long event featuring a pop-up gallery which showcased the 10 cats around Los Angeles as well as highlights selected from Instagram that fans shared through the hashtag #mygreatcat. Oh, and now through the end of August if you share a photo of your cat with #mygreatcat on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, Purina will donate 1 lb. of food (up to 50,000 lbs.) to one of many cat rescues around the country. Now that’s what I call great!
