Context

What does the world look like from the point of view of a clever cat? Or what antics and mischievous little things does he get up to that really shows off his character and personality as the loveable, clever cat that he is?

FELIX cat food is irresistibly tasty, and Felix will do anything for his As Good As It Looks™ meaty chunks in jelly. He loves it for its delicious taste and is up to his usual loveable mischief when he is happy, healthy and satisfied.

Cat owners can relate to the animated Felix black and white cat that is everything a real cat should be. Smart, resourceful, unpredictable, opportunistic, cheeky and loves his food. It is his individual personality, cleverness and playful nature that makes Felix so loveable, just like their own cat.

The PURINA FELIX team wants your help to shoot engaging and entertaining videos of a clever cat doing clever little things that really show off his individual cat personality.

We want to put a surprised smile on people’s faces, get them to watch it right to the end, and share your entertaining and clever video that shows your cat’s individual personality – we want to see his independence, cleverness and playful nature shine through.

Tips

The examples are only provided to illustrate our expectations. Please do not use them in your submission or it will be rejected.

A good video submission might be of a cat playing a game where it needs to guess which container hides the jingle bell after the containers have been mixed around. The cat can guess which container hides the jingle bell over and over again! What a clever cat!

A bad example might be a video of a cat that is very cute but isn’t really doing anything except looking cute. He isn’t doing anything active, he isn’t being clever. He just looks cute and purrs as his owner rubs his belly after enjoying his meal.
