Hairballs. Anyone would cough up an excuse not to deal with them – but Romeo the Cat
, the Twittering kitty
, is facing the issue paws first. On Friday, National Hairball Awareness Day, Romeo wants cat owners to know just how dangerous hairballs can be – some cats can choke on them! – and is sponsoring a cute photo contest to help spread the word. He's asking pet owners to show him their favorite, funniest furballs – that is, their cats – and we'll even post the winning picture on PEOPLE Pets on Friday. Plus, Romeo's winner will get a free FURminator brush
. To enter, just visit romeothecat.com
and follow the instructions.
Good luck! May the best furball win!
