Cute and funny photos of cats were sent in by our supporters to brighten up January

We were inundated with so many brilliant cat photos for last year’s #FelineGoodJanuary challenge that we decided to do it all again in 2022!

With a different cat-egory each week, our lovely supporters shared their snaps with us on social media to help spread some much-needed joy throughout January.

So many of the gorgeous photos brought a smile to our faces, but here are some of the highlights...
