The owners will find out if their cat is a winner at a star-studded award ceremony on Thursday 4 August at The Savoy in London, kindly funded by Purina® and hosted by the 'Voice of the Balls' on BBC1’s National Lottery TV programmes, Alan Dedicoat.

Celebrity judges, including actress Anita Dobson and broadcaster John Stapleton, will present the awards and pay tribute to the nation’s top cats.

Members of the public will be invited to vote for their favourite Purina® Better Together finalist @PurinaUK or at towards the end of June.

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.
