After clawing through hundreds of contest entries – and surviving the ensuing cuteness overload – we’ve managed to come up with 10 finalists for PETA’s 2018 Cutest Rescued Cat Alive title. Now it’s up to you to help us decide who we should choose to purr their way to first prize.
To vote to help us decide who we should choose as the winner, simply enter your contact information below and select your favourite finalist. Voting is open until 26 July 2018, and we’ll crown the winners on 30 July 2018. The guardian of the lucky cat who is named the Cutest Rescued Cat Alive will receive a first-place certificate, a copy of Ingrid Newkirk and Jane Ratcliffe’s book One Can Make a Difference, a “My Cat Is a Rescue” T-shirt, a PETA T-shirt and a cute cat toy. The second-place winner’s guardian will receive a second-place certificate, a copy of One Can Make a Difference, a “My Cat Is a Rescue” T-shirt and a cute cat toy. The third-place winner will receive a third-place certificate, a copy of One Can Make a Difference and a cute cat toy. The top three kitties will appear in an upcoming issue of Animal Times, PETA India’s magazine for members.
As much as we love kitties, sometimes there can be too much of a good thing, which is why spaying and neutering is so important. Help end animal overpopulation by taking the pledge to have all your companion cats sterilised. Spaying just one female cat can prevent 420,000 births in seven years, keeping more cats off the street and in loving homes.
