Theo is Cat of the Year 2018

Congratulations to Theo who's been crowned National Cat of the Year 2018 at the National Cat Awards.

Theo came to owner Charlotte's aid when she felt unwell. She thought she should go back to sleep to help her feel better but Theo kept stopping her from sleeping.

She eventually discovered she had a blood clot, which meant she had to go to hospital for a week for treatment. Medics told Charlotte that she could have been in a lot of trouble if she hadn't been kept awake overnight by Theo.

Tell us why YOUR cat is sooooo good in the comments below.
