In the meantime, take a look at 2016’s National Cat Award winners.

The overall winner will inherit the title from previous National Cat of the Year Tink, a plucky puss from Shrewsbury who saved the day after waking her family as a fire engulfed their home. Tink also won the Hero Cat category of the awards.

Other winners from 2016 include Houdini, winner of the Furr-ever Friends award for helping an autistic schoolboy called Harri to cope with anxiety attacks.

Most Caring Cat was awarded to Spike, a loving feline from Abergavenny that helps his owner Maria cope with a rare illness that has left her paralysed.

The Purina® Better Together award went to Smokie, a former stray cat who helped a teenage boy to overcome the death of his stepfather and the Outstanding Rescue Cat award went to a tortoiseshell cat called Jessie who helped her owners to cope with the death of their teenage daughter.
