Watch this space for details of this year’s finalists and celebrity judges.

Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday 4 August at London's Savoy Hotel where celebrity judges will also announce the National Cat of the Year 2016.

Each winner will receive a trophy, a pet-store voucher, a year's subscription to Cats Protection's The Cat magazine and a three-month supply of Purina® cat food.

In the meantime, take a look at 2014's National Cat Award winners.

The overall winner will inherit the title from previous National Cat of the Year Nelson, a one-eyes former stray from County Durham, who survived near-drowning and 15 years living rough and was also hailed winner of the Most Incredible Story category.

Other winners from 2014 include Cleo, winner of the Hero Cat award after she alerted her owner Pauline after her husband fell ill with a heart attack.

Most Caring Cat was awarded to Elias, a loving feline that helps his owner Jack in his recovery from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

The Purina® Better Together award went to Mr Chips, an inspiration to his owner Ian who has a complex medical condition.

Pet cat Holly was awarded the Special Recognition Award for her on-going love and support to owner Keith after he sadly lost four of his grandchildren in a house fire in 2012.
