* Houdini loves regular chips, Hank like butter popcorn

GRAND RAPIDS, MI – True to the name, Houdini tries to trick his brother, Hank, into getting into all sorts of mischief, but Hank’s calm demeanor wins out. Both cats have a favorite Better Made snack and both look like they just ate an entire bag in this fun photo sent in by Heather VanOrder of Grand Rapids. For submitting the winning pet photo for August 2023, Heather will receive a freshly made sampler box filled with a variety of delicious Better Made Snack Food products and the cats will receive some great-tasting treats from Hunter’s Healthy Treats.

“Houdini is our mischief maker and is always finding trouble, while Hank is the clam, laid back cat that will relax to the point of falling off the couch or bed,” says Heather of her two-year-old cats. “Hank likes regular/plain potato chips to lick and then carry around with him. Houdini prefers the Better Made Movie Theater popcorn. Butter rules this house!”
