Now in its tenth year, Cats Protection's National Cat Awards celebrate the difference cats make to their owners lives - from displaying great courage to simply being an excellent companion.

If you've got a marvellous moggy you'd like to nominate, you have until noon on Friday 9 March to nominate them for one of five categories. Categories are:

  • Hero Cat - cats that save the day
  • Most Caring Cat - cats that positively impact a person's health or wellbeing
  • Furr-ever Friends - tales of friendship between children and cats
  • Outstanding Rescue Cat - fabulous felines adopted from animal charities
  • Purina® Better Together - celebrating the special bond that has transformed

Once the nominations are in, a panel of celebrities have the tricky job in selecting the winners of each category. The awards will be given out in a star-studded ceremony, held at the Savoy Hotel in London on Thursday 2 August.

The winner of National Cat of the Year will be handed over from 2017 champion Genie, pictured above, a cat from Lincoln who helped 12-year-old Evie Henderson battle bone cancer.
