Week 5: Facebook? Cats? Purina.

I don’t typically follow brands or companies or businesses on Facebook. I don’t really care to. I use Facebook to see what my friends, family, and coworkers are doing – not what some high-end business is selling. I just don’t see the appeal. That’s not to say I wouldn’t follow the page of a brand/company that I really liked, I just haven’t found one interesting enough.

So the other day I was talking to my friend about my cat. Let’s get one thing straight here: I love my cat. She is my best friend and I couldn’t live without her. I seriously can’t stress that enough. I’ve always wanted the best for my cat, I never buy no-name brand food or dollarstore toys; only the best for my little sweetheart. One thing I’ve always been super keen on is feeding my cat Purina Cat Chow. She loves it, and I love her so it just works out. So that begged the question, why not write about Purina Cat Chow?

I visited their Facebook page and saw how AWESOME it was. Cats everywhere (if you can’t already tell, I am 100% cat person. Love love love cats. Dogs are cool, too). Seriously, pictures of cats just plastered all over their page – I was in heaven. Upon further research as to why random people and their cats were posted all over the timeline, I realized that Purina was having this really cool contest where you share a picture of your cat and a story that really describes the relationship between you two. Winner receives $5000 and a year’s supply of cat chow! I wish I had known about this sooner!

For cat lovers, this page is perfect. You can read awesome cat stories, see the cutest cat pictures and bond with all the other cat lovers of the world. It feels like a community. Even in their description:

There may not be cat parks yet, but there’s finally a place to come together and connect with cat owners like you to celebrate your love for your cats.

You can tell, they know their Facebook page is a virtual cat-loving society. They even have people from their company commenting back and interacting with the costumers. So heartwarming.

I think Purina is really smart for how they’re using their page. Who doesn’t like a chance to flaunt their cute little feline? I know I love posting pictures of my cat on Facebook, there must be more like me! Really smart tactic, if you ask me. Not to mention winning money and free cat food? I mean, come on, Purina – make a better deal! I, myself, am head over heals for this contest. I love it; I bet they love it too – all the publicity for their company and showing how passionate they are for what they do. Truly respectable.

A Facebook page filled with cat pictures and cute stories is exactly how I’d spend my night. I never knew this existed until recently and I am so happy I found it. Seriously, genuinely, legitimately happy that this exists. Thank you, Purina Cat Chow, for the delicious food and epic Facebook page.
