submitted on February 22, 2015 by HouTex in "Stores / Merchants", last updated on February 23, 2015 by HouTex
I see a lot of deals linked to the Academy Awards today, but I found this one really amusing! What do you think? Is it funny, or am I in a silly mood?

If you're interested, they encourage you to join their Twitter Chat during the awards program. The promotion actually runs through March 8, 2015 at 11:59:59 pm ET, and you can read details here -

Here's how to enter:
-Create a message under 140 characters (including hashtag), that expresses what pethood means to you.
-Using Twitter, post it using the hashtag #PetSmartContest.
-You may include a photo of your pet, but it will not increase your chances of winning.

Judging Criteria: All entries will be judged based on the following weighted criteria:
-Message quality and originality (30% weighting)
-Extent to which humor helps convey the message (30% weighting)
-Extent to which entry best captures the essence of being a pet parent (40% weighting)

Prizes: There are five prizes, each consisting of a personalized package of PetSmart products, services and gift cards. Prizes will be tailored to each Winner’s pet, based on the Winner’s response to a questionnaire. Average Retail Value of each, $250.

    I had 11 cats when I was a child. I think I had one too many. Now as a grown up I don't have any pets, and don't want to.

    I have a crazy kitty... just the one. And did I mention he's crazy! When people told me that owning a bengal cat (mix of leopard cat and domestic short-hair) was challenging... I truly had no idea. They say cats have 9 lives; mine might have 9 personalities.
