WANTED: BLACKS CATS
NATIONAL SEARCH IS ON FOR PERFECT WITCH’S CAT
It’s broomsticks at the ready as today sees the launch of a nationwide hunt to find the perfect witch’s cat this Halloween.
The search, launched by Petplan, calls for black cat owners to submit their pet pictures to www.petraitgallery.co.uk and be in with a chance of being named official cat of the Wookey Hole Witch.
Strict witchy criteria includes fur the perfect shade of black and an extra long tail for precision balancing on broomsticks. Piercing eyes to ward off enemies and a brave and independent disposition are also a must for potential winners.
An expert judging panel will handpick a shortlist of the top 13 felines on Friday 23rd October, and each cat will be tested on their witchy cat qualities.
The winning cat’s portrait will take pride of place alongside the famous Wookey Hole Witch for Halloween later this month.
To view the full criteria and upload your pet picture visit the National Petrait Gallery by Friday 23rd October: www.petraitgallery.co.uk
