If your cat is the cheekiest, funniest, cutest or sassiest, why not prove it – by entering a contest to see who's the real top cat.

Oak Tree Animals’ Charity, based at Wetheral, is encouraging all cat owners to send their Virtual Cat Photo Competition entries in before it's too late, with the August 17 deadline looming.

Costing just £3 to enter, the contest will see a handful of winners, with categories including; Rescue Rascal, Fun and Games, Wandering in the Wild, Best Friends Forever, Cat and the Art of Relaxing and, lastly, Cattitude.

First, second and third place winners will receive a special rosette and certificate, with one lucky kitty winning a meet-and-greet with the centre's mascot, Marmalady – on top of a secret surprise.

The beloved mascot is all set to judge the competition, which closes on Monday.
