To celebrate the release of Postman Pat: The Movie, NG Kids went on the search for a real-life Jess - Pat's famous black and white cat!
To complete our mission, we asked our readers to send in photos of their feline friends, and tell us the name and a bit about their pet pal. Phoebe Patient claimed first prize with her Jess lookalike Oscar, and bagged a bundle of cool kitty goodies from charity Cats Protection, and a Postman Pat: The Movie DVD. Well done, Phoebe!
We received lots of fantastic entries, gang - check out some of our favourites...
'This is my cat Oscar, on the left. Oscar's favourite food is fish. He enjoys sitting on people's laps and likes to sleep on our picnic table. He also likes clawing my grandpa’s slippers and trying to catch mice, too!'
'This is a picture of my cat called Buster. He's five years old and is a nice friendly cat. He is cute and affectionate and always likes to have a curl up on the sofa.'
'Meet my 16-year-old cat, Charlie. My mum and I got him when he was a kitten from a cat sanctuary. Charlie used to sit by my cot when I was a baby, protecting me. He loves cream cheese and even has it on his nose in the photo!'
'My cats Monty and Oscar like to sit in the car.'
'This is a picture of Gus. She is female which is unusual because most ginger cats are male. Gus is shy of everyone except me, and likes to sleep on my bed at night. She doesn't like to be picked up but loves being stroked and enjoys climbing trees.'
'This is my cat Hector. He loves sleeping and eating fish. People think he looks a bit evil, but he likes to be stroked. He's one of my best friends!'
Well done to all of you who entered!
