The Most Caring Cat category of the National Cat Awards focuses on cats that have a positive impact on an owner's health or wellbeing

Category winner - Penelope Farthing

Everyday life is unpredictable and frightening for Zoe, who suffers from a range of medical issues.

The conditions mean Zoe is barely able to hold her head up, is prone to breaking or dislocating bones and suffers terrifying seizures.

Thankfully, help is at hand in the form of Penelope, who senses when Zoe is about to have a seizure and raises the alarm.

Comforting grieving families on one of the most difficult days of their lives is all in a day’s work for Paddy.

For the past few years, the loving puss has made daily trips to a burial site near his home, where, if requested by mourners, he attends services or settles near families as they pay their respects, providing a soothing presence for mourners.

Weasley and Jinx

Weasley and Jinx are a much-loved part of daily life at Southdowns Nursing Home, providing comfort, entertainment and a focus for both residents and staff.

But what’s particularly remarkable is how Jinx seems to sense when a resident may be nearing the end of life, choosing to stay by their side during their final hours.
