The overall winner will inherit the title from previous National Cat of the Year Jessi-Cat, the family puss from Greater Manchester credited with transforming the life of seven-year-old Lorcan Dillon, who suffers from Asperger’s syndrome and anxiety disorder Selective Mutism.
Other winners last time included four-year-old William from Chorley, Lancashire, who won the Most Incredible Story title after he endured an agonising half-mile journey home on just his front legs following a brutal dog attack.
The Outstanding Rescue Cat award went to plucky Phoenix from Ballymoney, County Antrim, an eight-month-old puss who made an extraordinary recovery after suffering horrific burn injuries.
And two-year-old Charley, from Haltwhistle, Northumberland, scooped the Hero Cat title after raising the alarm when her owner collapsed following a diabetic attack.
