Theo, a cat from Worcestershire in the United Kingdom has been announced as Cat of the Year.
A panel of judges selected Theo for the top prize at the National Cat Awards, run by the Cats Protection League, at London’s Savoy Hotel.
Theo saved his owners’ life by keeping her awake when she suffered a blood clot.
Paramedics said without Theo’s actions, owner Charlotte Dixon may not have woken up again.
Unfortunately Theo, aged eight, died a week before the ceremony. However, he was still awarded the award.
Ms Dixon said: “All cats are amazing but I owe my life to Theo.I’m devastated that he’s gone but I’m so proud of him for winning”.
