Waffles & Katie Go Slo-Mo with a GoPro Hero Giveaway #CatsTrueNature



WAFFLES: I am the Mighty Hunter. No wand toy is safe. I can see a feather move from 100 miles away. Well, maybe from across the living room. The Mighty Hunter takes his battles very seriously.




WAFFLES: Except when he's dancing.


#CatsTrueNature
What Makes Us EXTRAORDINARY
Filmmaker Darren Dyk, creator of the fascinating BeyondSlowMotion YouTube channel has teamed up with Purina Pro Plan to shine a light on what makes cats so extraordinary. We know, we know. Tell us something new because we've been extraordinary for, well forever.

But don't you marvel sometimes at how we move with agile precision, leap to amazing heights, and lose ourselves in the all-consuming hunt? ...ok, so we may be hunting wand toys and feathers, but it's all a safari to us! Darren's video features incredible slow-motion action of cats in scenes that reveal how truly magnificent our bodies are and how we're perfectly built for action.





GoPro Hero Giveaway
What??? You heard that right. We have an exciting opportunity for you today! One lucky Glogirly reader will win a GoPro of their very own and some generous product coupons from Purina Pro Plan to use or to share with a friend or favorite shelter.

And to show you just how much fun it is to capture slow motion action, we've got a brand new video we shot with our own GoPro Hero just for you. It's such a fun camera to use, especially down low at our level. That's where the true action is. That's where #CatsTrueNature is.




We invite you to enter our special giveaway and also to join in the fun by showing YOUR cat's true nature.You can share your photos or videos with the #CatsTrueNature communities on Twitter or Instagram using #CatsTrueNature and @ProPlanCat. Your cat just might be featured on ProPlan.com.

Here are some fun ideas to capture and share:

The Leap
Waffles leaps for his wand toy, but Katie leaps for the tallest kitchen counter.

The Spring
This one's about jumping into action. In our house we call this one the stair chase. Waffles chases Katie up the stairs and Katie chases Waffles down the stairs. 

The Stalk 
Waffles will stalk just about anything. A crumpled up piece of paper, a milk ring or his favorite feather. Katie on the other hand... she stalks Waffles.

The Wildcard
This one was made for Waffles. No explanation necessary.

  13. What fun! I'd love to get some slo-mo of Karma-Kat doing his "sledding" routine, he loves being towed around on a towel dragged along the floor. Runs and leaps to grab hold, such fun! That and his "mighty leaps" for the elusive feather.

  14. Boy, our mom sure could use one of these! Because Minchie can jump super high and it would be so cool to see him in slo-mo.

    ReplyDelete
  15. OMG this is so cool! I would definitely capture the "leap!" My one husky just loves jumping up as high as he possibly can to catch whatever it is I am throwing to him at that particular time and I think that would be a great capture!

  39. Awesome video! Another great use for the GoPro Hero is strapping it to your head. It gives you a Google Glass-style recording of your furball in action, while you play. But sliding the camera along like that was cool too. I'm curious how you had it mounted.

    1. Thanks, Little Chomper! For those action shots, we put the camera inside a shoebox with a little hole cut out for the lens to peek through. We attached a feather to it to dangle behind and then pulled it flat along the floor with 2 shoelaces we attached to the box. Nothing fancy... and it did come apart a couple of times when we let Waffles get too close, but it worked!
