This year, Purina® Cat Chow® marks its 60th anniversary as a trusted provider of cat nutrition, celebrating the essential bond between cats and their owners. To celebrate this milestone, Cat Chow asked cat lovers to share their stories of how cats have positively impacted their lives. Out of thousands of entries, 60 were selected and compiled into the new book, “60 Years. 60 Stories: Celebrating the Extraordinary Impact of Cats”, with a foreword by the famous actress and singer, Maddy Moore. The book is available for purchase now at CatChow.com/60Years.
In this unique collection, 60 personal stories from cat owners across the country highlight the profound impact cats have had on their lives. From Annie, the cat who comforts a young cancer patient, Gypsy, the source of strength during her owner’s panic attacks, to ‘Samson the Magnificent’, the resting-faced cat who became a companion for an empty nester , thousands have shared stories of amazing cats who provide comfort and joy in times of need – all without saying a word.
“I look at my three cats – Fig, Olivia and Peanut – and feel so grateful for the love and companionship they’ve given me over the years,” Moore said. “Cats have a wonderful way of making our lives better and these 60 stories really bring that to life. It’s a heartwarming book and I’m honored to help Cat Chow celebrate the incredible impact cats have on us.”
