Animal lovers around the country are being urged to enter a competition to see their pet crowned king of the couch.
Many pet owners will know the feeling of being forced to squeeze into the corner of a sofa or even sit on the floor as their four-legged friend makes themselves comfy on the furniture. Now there’s a chance to share your pain with others and potentially win a hotel stay into the bargain.
Furniture retailer ScS has launched a search for Britain’s most brazen sofa-stealer and is offering a bundle of prizes to the owner.
To enter, animal lovers can simply upload a photo of their sofa-hogging pet to the SCS blog site along with a short description explaining why they think their pet should be named King of the Couch.
Throughout the competition SCS’s judges will be posting their favourite entries from the previous day on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest and you can stay up to date by following the hashtag – #KingOfTheCouch.
The competition runs from 22 June to 18 July, with the winner receiving a pet-friendly hotel stay up to the value of £200, a £50 Pets At Home voucher and a local photoshoot for their pet.
Commenting on the competition, ScS managing director Kevin Royal said: “We see lots of humorous images and videos on the internet of pets getting up to mischief and we wanted a chance to get in on the fun by rewarding pet owners for their patience with their animals.
“With the summer in full swing, pets will be looking to retire to the sofa after a long and hard day of walkies, fetch and sunbathing. This gives the perfect opportunity for people to catch their pesky pets in the act of stealing the couch. I can’t wait to see the photos that come in!”
