Summer Siesta contest banner

The long, lazy days of summer are here! Sure, many small animal pets might not know the difference, but you do. And that means a sleeping ferretrabbitguinea pighamster or other small animal pet could be said to be taking a siesta. And so, the Small Animal Pet Summer Siesta Contest is born!

What could be easier than taking a picture of your pet as he or she sleeps? Unless of course he hides when he sleeps. Hidden pets aside, quietly take a photo of your sleeping or sleepy rabbit, guinea pig, ferret, hamster, rat, gerbil, sugar glider, hedgehog, chinchilla, mouse and other small exotic mammal. Once you finish oohing and aahing over the cuteness of your pet, share the photo here!

The contest runs through July 31, 2013. 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 the 2013 issue of Rabbits USA magazine, plus a SmallAnimalChannel noisemaker. Two runners-up will also receive a SmallAnimalChannel noisemaker.

The Small Animal Pet Summer Siesta contest is open to small animal pets only (guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, etc.). If you have a dog, cat, bird, reptilefish or horse, be sure to check out our sister sites (click on the link) for information about those species and to check for contests.
