Animal welfare charity Cats Protection is inviting cat lovers across the UK to nominate their furry friends for the National Cat Awards 2020.
The annual event celebrates the nation’s most marvelous moggies, with heart-warming tales of devotion, courage, and companionship.
Nominations are now open and cat owners have until noon on Thursday 12 March to nominate their cat for one of five categories:
- Hero Cat– Cats that save the day
- Most Caring Cat– Cats that positively impact a person’s health or wellbeing
- Furr-ever Friends– Tales of friendship between children and cats
- Outstanding Rescue Cat– Fabulous felines adopted from animal charities
- Purina® Better Together– Celebrating the special bond that has transformed and enriched the lives of both a feline and human.
Cats Protection’s awards organiser Kate Bunting said: “Cats have a unique take on life, capable of bringing a sense of calm and comfort while also being endlessly entertaining. Their sense of fun and devotion for their owners makes them much-loved pets in millions of homes.
“We’re proud to once again be hosting these awards to celebrate everything we love about cats and we can’t wait to hear about the UK’s most fabulous felines.”
The winning cats will be chosen by a panel of celebrity cat-lovers at an award ceremony at London’s Savoy Hotel on Thursday 6th August. The overall winner will inherit the title from Jeffree, a life-changing moggy from Coventry who helped teenager Finn Hackeson, who has Asperger syndrome, cope with the death of his father (pictured).
