Winners of APHA's Get Ready Preparedness Cats Photo Contest announced
Thanks to everyone who submitted an entry into APHA’s Get Ready Preparedness Cats Photo Contest! We received more than 200 photos of preparedness cats. It was hard to choose, but our judges selected 23 winning photos for our 2013 calendar. From cats in bathtubs and sinks to kitties hiding in boxes and under rugs, the photos show that preparedness and cats go hand in hand (or paw in paw!).
The photo contest, which was held in September 2012 in conjunction with National Preparedness Month, used cats as a fun to promote preparedness lessons.
Check out the winners in our photo gallery and download a free PDF of our 2013 calendar today. Share copies with your friends, family and colleagues!

Announcing APHA’s Get Ready Cat Preparedness Photo Contest
Even more cats! We had so many great entries submitted for our photo contest that we just couldn't keep them to ourselves!

Preparedness is important for you, your family and your community. Yet many people aren't ready for disasters.
Luckily, APHA's Get Ready campaign is here to help! We have information to help you prepare for a range of emergencies — from floods to disease outbreaks. We can help you build an emergency kit, teach your kids about preparedness or find out the best way to wash your hands!
(And, yes, we even have information for preparing your cats and other pets for emergencies.) Find out how to get prepared now!
Share your cats with even more people by uploading your photos to I Can Has Cheezburger?, the popular (and hilarious!) online photo-sharing website!
