Ready to get a $1,000 biannual scholarship from CatPet.Club?
Update: Congratulations to our winner – Shelby Walklate for her paper “A cat food as a key to her wellbeing”. She has already received the prize of $1,000.
We are thankful for all other participants and don’t take their effort for granted. Thank you for your commitment and we believe that you will definitely win next time!
We’re establishing it to help students from universities, high schools, and other educational institutions across the USA and Canada. A winner gets $1,000 to their institution’s finance account.
Here’s what you need to apply:
Please write a 600-800-word essay on ONE of the topics:
1. What can we do to cut down on homeless cats?
Did you know that 3,200,000 cats enter U.S. animal shelters yearly? More than that, about 860,000 of them become subjects of euthanasia.
Think and write about what everyone can start doing today to influence these awful statistics and make things better.
Do your best to avoid political aspects. Be creative and thoughtful.
2. How cat’s nutrition impacts their health and well-being
We’ve all heard the saying, “You are what you eat.” But is it true when speaking about our felines?
Please write about what cat owners should consider when feeding their pets. How to improve a cat’s nutrition for better health, longevity, and disease prevention? Is it only high-quality food that matters? What about hydration, extra treats, or supplements for cats?
Also, what can you tell about the differences in healthy diets for indoor and outdoor felines?
3. Is it necessary to manage a cat’s weight?
According to the official data, 30-35% of felines suffer from obesity, and 50% of 5-11 years old cats are overweight. Do you consider it a problem?
If so, what can a cat’s human parent do to solve this problem? (Please avoid trivial solutions such as feeding cat food for weight loss when writing.) Where is a fine line between helping our four-legged friend stay healthy and body-shaming her?
