KELLER TX – Dressing up a cat is perhaps one of the hardest things you can try, but that’s not the case for an adorable cat named Pedro that lives at the Animal Advocates of North Texas, an animal rescue group! Pedro loves being fussed over and dressed up in costumes like Santa, a biker, and more. Pedro’s photo was sent in by Fiona Green of the animal rescue group and has been chosen as the October 2021 pet photo winner. For winning, Fiona will receive a freshly made sampler box filled with a variety of delicious Better Made Snack Food products.

Pet contest photos of all kinds may be submitted on line through the contest page at the Better Made website,, e-mailed to, or mailed to Better Made Pet Photo Contest, 10148 Gratiot Avenue, Detroit, MI 48213. Remember, Better Made encourages people to send in their most outrageous and/or cutest pet photo they can of their favorite pet, be it a dog, cat, goat, rabbit, bird, orangutan, frilled lizard, etc., and the funnier or cuter the better!

“Pedro is the most amazing cat I have ever met,” says Green, an active director of Animal Advocates of North Texas. “I have a constant stream of foster kittens passing through my home. Thankfully I have Pedro because he is a wonderful mentor to the babies we receive and will hold and groom them, and make them feel safe. They adore him and will play with his tail, which he swishes around like a cat toy for their amusement. He is also very photogenic and will allow me to dress him up in different costumes and pose for photos, including a snowman to James Bond to a biker. He never protests and seems to enjoy the attention. He truly is one in a million!”
