Nominations for the National Cat Awards 2024 are now open!

Family cats. Incredible cats. Senior cats. Connected cats. At Cats Protection, we're here for all cats. That's why we're celebrating the UK's favourite cats at this year's National Cat Awards.

Entries are open until noon on 26 March 2024, so act fast!*

Nominate your cat or vet


You can enter your cat into one of four categories. Please read our welfare guidance before entering. 

  • Family Cats: We share our lives with cats. They keep us company. They soothe and amuse us. They're part of the family. Can't imagine family life without your cat? We're looking for cats that make family life complete.
  • Incredible Cats: Has your cat done something truly extraordinary? Maybe they've survived against the odds, been with your through a difficult illness, returned home after an epic adventure, or maybe even saved your life. Tell us your incredible tales of brilliance. 
  • Senior Cats: Lap cats. Wise cats. Mature cats. Is your cat thriving in their golden years? We're looking for senior cats who have stayed by your side through the good, the bad and all the times in between. 
  • Connected Cats: Friendly cats. Community cats. Does your cat appear online? They might have their own large social media following or regularly pop up on your local community page. However well-connected they are, we're celebrating cats that bring joy and happiness into our everyday lives.
  • Vet of the Year 2024: This year we're also celebrating veterinary professionals who are doing exceptional work for cats. Has your vet provided outstanding cat care? Or maybe they've gone out of their way to support you and to make your cat more comfortable in their care?

The winner of each cat category will be selected by public vote and then be in the running to be chosen as National Cat of the Year 2024 by a panel of judges. The Vet of the Year 2024 winner will be chosen by a panel of cat experts.

*Entrants must be 18 or over. Entry is open to living cats only. Cats and owners must be available for filming. Please read the full terms and conditions before entering.
