Thanksgiving is fast-approaching, a time when people reflect on what they're thankful for in their lives. For many, it also means celebrating with family. More and more pet owners consider their pets part of their family, so this month's contest acknowledges that. Tell us why your small animal pet is part of your family.
Perhaps your rabbit wakes you up every morning or your hamster listens as you talk about your day. Your guinea pig might wheek to remind you it's mealtime or your rat might offer quiet comfort from your shoulder. Ferrets, chinchillas, gerbils, hedgehogs, sugar gliders, mice and all small animal pets are "there" for their owners. Share a photo of your pet and a paragraph about what makes it part of your family. Scroll down and fill out the form to enter!
The contest runs through November 30, 2012. Your first entry earns you 250 Club Critter points (be sure you sign in to your Club Critter account before uploading your photo to earn the points). Club Critter points can be used to purchase items in the Avatar shop or redeem items from the rewards catalog.
Editors will select one winner after the contest ends. The winner of the contest receives 1,000 Club Critter points and his or her choice of a copy of the 2013 issue of Critters USA magazine, the 2012 issue of Ferrets USA magazine or the 2012 issue of Rabbits USA magazine, plus a SmallAnimalChannel noisemaker. Two runners-up will also receive a SmallAnimalChannel noisemaker.
The Critters In The Family contest is open to small animal pets only (guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, etc.).
