    I would have a hard time deciding what to do with the cat food. There are plenty of worthy shelters here in our area but it would also be a wonderful thing to take to work to feed the strays there too.

  11. My Facebook newsfeed is filled with heart breaking videos of abuse and pleas for adoption… They break me to the point of tears. I sit back and wonder.. How can I help? HOW CAN I HELP.?? I would love nothing more than to give the gift of food to a kitty shelter. Help them take a load off their wallets for five minutes during this season of giving

  40. Chiss says:

    I have 18 rescue kittehs. I find homes for the young and healthy. I keep the old, sick, feral and psychotic. They are all house kittehs with backyard privileges (We have a cat fence). We would like to try this food. Thank you!

  45. Amy says:

    Even though I have two cats of my own, I would donate this to my local shelter (which narrowly missed being shut down earlier this month)! The county offered a six-month extension but we’re in jeapordy of shutting down on 7/1/12 🙁 Every little bit helps – including providing food for the animals! 🙂

  46. Laura says:

    Although I have two kitties of my own, I would donate this to the animal shelter in our town. They are always in need of help, and do such a good job.

  52. …donate it to our local animal shelter…

  53. Cathy Johnson says:

    We rescued our two “kids”, Sol and Luna from King Street Cats in Alexandria, VA and that’s where the food would go. They are a wonderful organization and we are so happy that we were adopted. We can’t imagine our lives without these little guys who have become our Christmas tree ornaments this year. We’ll try again next year to have something more decorative. At least they are festive!

  54. If we won, we would love to give this food to bideawee’s animal shelter this holiday!

  55. beni says:

    I am a neighborhood caregiver and, at this time of year, food is my biggest need. You can see some of the faces I am talking about on my website:

    They are the ones who would benefit from the gift!

  56. Amy Orvin says:

    I’d love this for my cats as well as the neighbor’s cats I feed daily. Heck, there’s enough for an animals sheltar too. Please pick me!!!

  57. Could we ever use that! It would be such a help and we’d love to win it.

  58. Christina says:

    I foster for a local humane society and we could really use it!

  59. The McCuddlesworths says:

    We are finicky about our noms. 2 of us were shelter kittehs so we’d be happy to give other shelter kittehs quality noms! Of course, we’d keep some for ourselves and perhaps feed the tom cat (Gentleman Caller Kitteh) who visits our patio everyday.

  60. D. Esler says:

    What an awesome thing for Hills to do. There are numerous shelters, feral feeders, and a large county shelter in our rural area. The food could be split between several of them!

  61. Maika'i says:

    My four fabulous felines came from 2 great area shelters, and we would love for them to share this gift. Thanks for the contest and Meowy Fishmas!

  62. Christopher Justice says:

    I’d give it to my local no kill shelter.

  63. Terri says:

    I volunteer at a no-kill shelter. I’m sure they can always use more food.

  64. Amy says:

    We just adopted our third cat. It’d be nice for a bag or two and then send the rest to the shelter where we adopted the cat.

  65. Frank & Max says:

    We would give it to our Mommy who feeds cats that come on the 1st floor porch. She says there are 4 or 5 of them. They don’t have a home and I think other poeple are helping feeding them. We think it would be a nice thing to do this time of year.

  66. Elizabeth Hogueison & Zelda says:

    We would love to win! We adopted our kitty from our local shelter & this will be her first Christmas!

  67. Richard says:

    The humane center in our city would really appreciate the gift.

  71. Emanuelieta Prusaitis says:

    8 cats who eat a lot! They would love this !

  72. says:

    My kitty Fuzz is on CRF food, but I’d gladly donate free food to the Cat Connection in Waltham, MA. They are an all-volunteer, no-kill rescue group who has been working overtime this year because of all the people who had to give up their cats due to the economy.

  73. says:

    This will be an entry for my other oldster cat, Sweetpea, who is also on CRF food. I’ll give this free food to the Cat Connection in Waltham, MA. They’re a group of volunteers who do good things for cats!

    Happy Holidays and thanks for giving them a chance!!

  80. Bettina says:

    So many worthy fur babies to help with this food

  81. Bocce Tabby says:

    Yummy! Some for me and some for my feral friends.

  82. Cynthia says:

    I would try one bag on my brood of little old men (most of my cats are seniors). I would talk to my wonderful vet Dr. Sessa for direction as to where to send the rest. So many cats are going hungry these days. Only today I heard about a twelve year old sweet girl who was abandoned by her owner without so much as a look back. So much for holiday spirit! Thanks for offering this gift to the needy.

  83. Bruce Schram says:

    My little guys would love the cat food being offered. They are small cats so they would not eat it all. If I win I would joyfully share this wonderful gift with the local shelter

  87. Paul says:

    I hungry. Give food to my caregiver. NOW!

  88. valerie says:

    I have 3 cats, but they don’t eat Science Diet. But, there is a great no kill shelter nearby who is having financial problems, and could close. I think they could really benefit from this prize.

  89. Flip and Slippers says:

    we would donate this to a local shelter!

  90. flicka47 says:

    Oh! I’d love to be able to donate this to my local shelter! Thanks Mousebreath & Hill’s for the opportunity to win this!

  91. The McCuddlesworths says:

  92. William says:

    If I won I would try some, share some and donate some.

  93. Lillian Spiro says:

    I know many outdoor kitties can use the food. I buy what I can afford, this would help them out so very much.

  94. Cathy Cassar says:

    We are a diverse household with two kittehs, Mimi and Faye, 2 dogs, Rocco and Murphy and Chichi, our chinchilla. All of our animals, except chichi came from shelters. Mimi and Rocco came from the michigan Humane society. We would love to give back to them!

  95. Anthony says:

    I am a super at three buildings in the South Bronx,NY for what seems to be 30 to 40 cats and kittens (someone is always giving birth)for the past 2 1/2 years who come running from all directions when they here my truck arrive. I definitely cannot afford buying dry and canned food all the time – since my Brother’s passing (I’ve even taken care of his three Wheaten Terriers) – so the bills need to be paid and these guys need to eat, they never go a day without food and water – and I search high and low for cat food on sale and for the best bargains in the Supermarkets K-Mart and elsewhere. These cats are something else – they rip everyone’s garbage bags in the neighborhood but mine – I just give them each a wink for a thank you.
    Hey, I think everyone needs to be able to have at least one meal a day – and I really try my best to provide for them.
    Anyway – any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,

  96. Judy says:

    I would love to be able to give the food to my niece and her family. They have two rescue cats, and not a lot of money.

  97. Amy says:

    This will help a lot.

  98. James says:

    This is what I think of Santa Paws and this silly outfit.

  99. Willow says:

    My brother needs urinary health food because he has had bladder blockages. So my mommy, brother and I would like to win so we can donate the food to save a pet! They have hundreds of hungry kitties.

  100. pamela curry says:

    I would donate the food to Catsnap. They are te rescue that I adopted my 3 boys from. They always can use the food and free up money for other uses

  101. Jake says:

    I would like to have my two cats try this.

  102. Kaytee says:

    My kitty, Gunther, only eats science diet due to his health issues. He would appreciate this food so much!

  103. Pearl says:

    I just adopted a shelter kitty. SD is the food of choice. I’d love to share SD with the shelter for all the other kitties not yet adopted.

  104. Ive adopted three kitties would love some new hills food- abbey, Meggie and half-pint

  105. Jennifer says:

    I love your Christmas kitteh picture! It made me laugh!

  106. Lori Lamb says:

    As a lifelong feline lover and supporter of several animal charities, what a Godsend it would be to be able to bless one of my ‘pet’ charities with 150 pounds of your new food.

    I’ll be looking for this new product at my local pet food store. With three hungry furbabies to feed, I’m always looking for the best possible food for my fur-kids.
