#ClubFreshStep Cat Bearding Photo Contest

This is a sponsored post about the cat bearding photo contest. Opinions are my own.
You might have already heard of cat bearding, the fun new trend of taking photos with a cat held up to your face to appear as a beard.  The trend started when a photo of a cat looking like a beard on someone’s face was posted online.  Others started taking similar photos and the idea went viral. Collective Bias and Fresh Step want to see your best cat bearding photos.  By sharing your most creative and original cat bearding photo, you could win a professional photo shoot for you and your cat and an entire year’s worth of kitty litter.

I’ll be sharing some of MY cat bearding photos with you in just a few weeks.  We have 2 little kittens here at the house, and it’ll probably be more like catgoatee-ing for me!!
