Welcome to The Hawk Eye's Pet Idol Contest 2012!
Welcome to the all new Pet Idol 2012.  This year we are looking for a purrfect feline, a special canine and finally any other animal you call your own.

Does your exotic bird fill the house with pleasant sounds?  Does your kitty fit in at home like one of the family? How about your dog, is it truly your best friend?  

YES!  Enter your pet in the Pet Idol contest to see how it measures up against other animals in the same category.
