Our National Cat Awards are an annual celebration of the companionship of cats

Entries are now closed for this year’s National Cat Awards but we’ll be asking you to vote for your ‘purrfect choice’ soon, so watch this space!

We’re back with our annual celebration of the companionship of cats. Celebrate the friendship between your feline friend and child or let us know how your cat has improved your wellbeing.

This year we also introduce our Cat Colleagues award, a new addition sponsored by FELIWAY® Optimum.

Winners will be selected by a panel of celebrity cat lovers before being announced at a star-studded ceremony at London’s Savoy Hotel on 4 August 2022.

Full terms and conditions can be found here.

We’ll soon announce our finalists for our four ‘cat-egories’ highlighting the wonder of all things feline.

  • Cat Colleagues (sponsored by FELIWAY® Optimum) – cats that enhance the 9-5 or make working from home a joy
  • Furr-ever Friends – for cats and kids that have a great relationship
  • Outstanding Rescue Cat – inspiring stories of cats adopted from rescue organisations
  • Most Caring Cat – cats that have had a positive impact on their owner’s health or wellbeing

Minty - 2021 Cat of the Year

Minty was last year's overall winner.

Six-year-old Connor has severe learning difficulties and a range of medical conditions affecting his physical, mental and emotional development.

Everyday life is made easier thanks to Minty, his nine-year-old cat who is always on hand when Connor is struggling.

Minty calms Connor during emotional meltdowns, provides fun and companionship and even helped Connor learn to climb the stairs.
