Does your kitten just love to snuggle up under your arm? Or maybe your big Labrador has forgotten he's not a puppy anymore and plops right in your lap whenever you sit down. If you can snap an amazing photo of that cuddly moment, you could win $1000 from Freshpet.

Freshpet, which is currently the only pet food company that produces refrigerated cat and dog food made in the U.S., announced on Wed., Feb. 12 they are teaming up with parenting lifestyle blogs Mommy Shorts and Momma's Gone City to launch a contest known as Team Cuddle, to honor cuddly, loving moments between pets and their families.

There will be four categories with two dedicated to pets. Prizes for the best photos include one grand prize winner of $1000 and four category winners of $250 each. Both winners of the pet prizes will also receive a Freshpet Prize Pack with selected Freshpet yummies and coupons.

“We are big fans of these two blogs and could not be more excited to be a part of Team Cuddle,” said Kathryn Winstanley, VP of Marketing for Freshpet, “Pets bring so much joy and love into our lives. It will be fun to see those emotions expressed in the beautiful images we’ll receive.”

To enter, visit the Mommy Shorts' Facebook page and upload your photo between Feb. 10, 2014 and Mar. 3, 2014. If you're having difficulty getting your pet to give you that perfect cuddly moment, why not give one of Freshpet's all-natural treats a go, such as their Dog Joy Sausage Slices?

More and more pet owners are considering switching their pets from conventional canned and dry pet foods to a diet of fresh food, and Freshpet has made that easier to do with their line of refrigerated pet foods which have no preservatives or fillers and contain high-quality meats, fish and poultry along with fresh veggies and fruits. With the string of recent recalls and horror stories of sickness and death from pet foods made in other countries., it's also encouraging that all of Freshpet's products are made right here in the United States.
