The winning felines, and the overall National Cat of the Year, will be announced at a glamorous awards ceremony at London’s Savoy Hotel on Thursday 7 August 2014. The event will be attended by celebrity judges who will present the awards and pay tribute to the nation’s top cats.

Kate Bunting, Cats Protection’s PR Manager and award organiser said: “As a charity that helps over 218,000 cats and kittens each year, we come across many unbelievable stories of feline courage and bravery which remind us how adopting a cat can change our lives for the better. The National Cat Awards are designed to celebrate the contribution that all of the nation’s cats make to their owners’ lives and we hope to receive many entries in the months ahead.”

The winner of this year’s National Cat Awards will inherit the title from previous winner Jessi-Cat, a cat from Greater Manchester who helped Lorcan Dillon, a young boy with selective mutism, to communicate his emotions more effectively. So don’t delay – enter your marvellous moggie’s story today!

To enter your cat’s story, please visit or contact Cats Protection’s national helpline on tel: 03000 12 12 12 or [email protected] to request an entry form.

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity and helps over 218,000 cats and kittens each year through a national network of 257 volunteer-run branches and 30 adoption centres. The charity’s vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.
