Purina Tidy Cats brand will select two grand prize winners to receive $10,000 and a trip to New York for the feline design “Pet Projects”. Television host, designer and cat owner Candice Olson and Purina are looking for creative cat inventions and decorations.

“As a design professional and cat owner, it’s exciting to see that the DIY trend is extending to our pets,” said Candice Olson, spokesperson for the Purina® Tidy Cats® “Pet Projects” Design Challenge. “Feline design is becoming more popular among cat owners and it’s time to showcase their creativity and ingenuity. I can’t wait to see the innovative pet projects people have made to enhance their lives with their feline friends.”

The contest was announced today. Entrants must create a video shorter than two minutes in length that shows the “pet project” and explains why and how they created it. Examples of pet projects include sleeping nooks, a self-cleaning litter box, a catio (an enclosed patio for your cat), inventive play stations and climbing perches, to name a few. Cat owners can enter the online video contest now through August 16 at

Eight Runners-Up Prize winners will also have their designs displayed and will each receive $500. All 20 Finalists will receive a one year supply of Purina® Tidy Cats® brand Cat Litter. For more information about the Purina® Tidy Cats® “Pet Projects” Design Challenge,
