The preparations are gathering pace and the excitement is growing in anticipation of what promises to be a day to remember; the finalists of our National Cat Awards sponsored by Verdo Cat Litter have been announced!
Three cats have been named in each of our five categories. The shortlist includes one-eyed puss, Midge, who became a movie star; William who not only survived a vicious dog attack, but also found his way home; Leo who thwarted a would-be burglar and Charley who saved his diabetic owner's life.
We are now less than a month away from the ceremony which will take place at The Savoy in London and, quite frankly, we can't wait for the big day! With some amazing stories of feline friendship, bravery and heroism, a top location and celebrity supporters all lined up, we're confident that it'll be a fantastic celebration of cats.

Previous winners of the overall title have included 'moggy midwife', Marmite, who helped his owner through a difficult pregnancy and Tee Cee who could detect when his epileptic owner was about to suffer a seizure.
