While everyone is talking about the Powerball lottery, an Odessan has a reason to be proud of the Texas Lottery Scratch Tickets!

 

Amaris Sherman’s cat, Vladimir, is one of six dogs and cats that won a contest to be featured on an upcoming scratch ticket called ‘Cats vs. Dogs’. The bambino sphinx was one of the top vote getters in a Facebook photo contest that had more than 1,700 dogs and cats vying for the coveted spot.

 

Sherman says, “I was overfilled with excitement. He brings so much joy to the family and brightens up the place with his silly self. My kids and boyfriend love him dearly and he is my son’s best friend.”

 

The other cat winners include two people from Dallas, one from Arlington, one from Houston and one from Pharr.

 

As for the dogs, the winners came from Ovilla, Sugar Land, College Station, Victoria, Sugar Land and San Angelo.
