Our feline friends had their chance to shine over the weekend as actress and animal activist Nikki Reed hosted the third annual Catdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

Presented by Fresh Step, the Festival is part of the brand’s Million Meow Mission, a campaign to help shelters and rescues find more forever homes for cats.  This year, the Festival’s top film submissions starred shelter cats.

Reed presented the winning film with the Golden Litter Scoop award and $10,000 “kitty” to grand prize filmmaker Alana Grelyak for best original feline short film. Six featured films starring shelter cats were debuted at the festival along with a custom 14-karat gold-and-diamond cat dome ring worn by Reed. The ring is now available on auction and 80 percent of the auction price will benefit the ASPCA’s work for animals in need. From now through February 10 at 3:00 P.M. ET, you can enter the auction and view the film submissions from the Festival.
