Turn Your Cat Passion into Catakism

Is your cat the ruler of your household? You'll love this new, whisker-tickling perspective on our obsession with cats written by Jeff Lazarus. 

In honor of the New Year and dog and cat lovers across the United States, best-selling author Jeff Lazarus is hosting a casting call for all dog and cat lovers to have a chance for their furry friend to be featured on nationally syndicated TV, Pet Pals TV, which can be seen in more than 6 million homes in the U.S. 
Three pet parents will get to have their furry friend featured on an episode of Pet Pals TV, a nationally-syndicated television program to highlight how our furry friends make our lives a little extra special. All submissions will be shared on the Social Media Pages of Pet Pals TV and  must be photos of the pets only.   
To enter please submit a photo and/or video and tell us why your pet is the head of the household. (Please note that the more outlandish and quirky the better!) Your pet could have the chance to be make a TV appearance and featured on Pet Pals TV and/or a Social Media Star having their photo shared on social media.

Cat·a·kis·m (noun)

1. The deep and reverent belief in Cat as master, guru, mentor, sage, and ridiculous ball of cuteness.
2. The devotional beliefs and rituals practiced by Catakists.

Do you refer to your cat’s birthday as its Incarnation Anniversary?

Have you given serious thought to changing your Last Will and Testament to make Bootsy your prime beneficiary?

When your cat repeatedly perforates your thighs with its needle-sharp claws as part of its nightly lap dance, do you refer to this as “giving me a blessing,” rather than “giving me a Guantanamo?”

Welcome to the litter.
