Nevada resident Andrea Dorn is a winner in the 2013 Cat Writers’ Association writing competition.

Dorn won the Pro Plan® Pedigreed Cats Award, sponsored by Purina, for her entry: "Harder Than It Looks." The award is presented to the writer or creator of the best entry that focuses on cat breeds, pedigreed cats and professional breeder issues, including, but not limited to, health, care, nutrition and showing cats.

Dorn received a nice trophy and a check. "While I have won awards from them before, this was the best," she said. "I’m so excited."
