And The Winner Is …



An unscripted short film called Ricky has won the second annual Catdance Film Festival.

The film is narrated by a spunky and adorable 7-year-old named Willa about the bond between a dog and newly adopted cat filmed by  Simon Savelyev.

 Five finalist films made their debut at the Catdance Film Festival, which took place in Park City, Utah, during the heart of the independent film festival. Simon will receive $50,000 and a golden litter scoop.  Simon plans to use a portion of his prize money to support the local animal shelter. He also plans to make a contribution to Willa’s education fund.

Distraction toys such as a Kong can provide additional hours of fun if you stuff it with Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree and freeze the toy until the puree is solid. Be sure to give the stuffed Kong to your dog outside or somewhere where you won’t mind cleaning up the mess – if he doesn’t lick up everything for you! Peanut butter is another great option.
