Every cat owner loves pictures of cats, but sometimes our felines aren’t the most photogenic. We all have bad hair days, right? Even our cats! And now, we are ready to reveal the cat having the worst hair day: The winner of our pictures of cats worst hair days FURminator package!
In celebration of National Hairball Awareness Day, FURminator, one of the sponsors helping to keep cat health information and answers to your questions completely free, offered a great cat grooming and deshedding package to the funny pictures of cats contest entry showing the worst hair day of a cat.
Now, we all understand that not every cat can have a visibly bad hair day. Some don’t have hair long enough to really look, at least to the naked eye, like they are having a bad hair day. However, cats are very fastidious about their hair. As we all know, our felines spend quite a bit of time fussing with their fur.
For all we know, our kitties may experience their own cat hair styles differently than we perceive - when even one hair is out of place, if our finicky felines knew how, they just might try to cover it up with a hat... much as we do on our bad hair days. In other words, if your cat doesn’t have a crazy hairdo, but might wear a funny cat hat or otherwise try to disguise a bad hair day, you were entitled to enter one of your pictures of cats in our worst hair day contest, too!
We encouraged you to be silly, be creative, and have fun with your favorite feline’s cat hair! To take a hat off a doll, try a Halloween costume on your kitty, or give him a little cat hair mohawk ... And now, we have our winner!
