A round-up of our favourite funny cat photos that have cheered up dreary January


To help us brighten up a very wet and cold January, we set our supporters a weekly challenge to send us their best cat photos on social media.

There was a different photo theme each week and we were inundated with hundreds of lovely photos that had us smiling and laughing. Here are just a few of our favourites…
