It’s Reigning Cats & Dogs As IAMS Gives The Oscars A Pet Makeover

Full details of the survey below!

As Hollywood’s elite gather to recognise the best of the big screen at the 88th Academy Awards on Sunday night, Pet food brand IAMS reveals the pawesome four legged stars loved by Brit’s in celebration of this year’s Oscars.

IAMS asked over 2,000 pet owners to vote for their all-time favourite pets of the big screen with some surprising winners revealed. Almost a third (30%) crowned Lassie as Top Dog of the movies, beating British animation studio, Aardman’s beloved Gromit character to the top spot by over 10% of the votes. Lassie is also one of only four cats and dogs to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

With over a quarter (26%) claiming Puss in Boots deserves to take the gong as Top Cat, and a further 29% voting the Pixar feline the Most Adorable, it’s clear that the innocent eyed cutie, voiced by Antonia Banderas, has captured the heart of the nation.

The research found that cats cast as villains send shivers down our spine as the top ten list is dominated by feline felons (70% cats vs. 30% dogs). The evil Siamese cats from Lady in the Tramp take the gong with 16% of the votes, followed closely by Snowbell from Stuart Little (15%).

Celine Gustin, Senior Marketing Manager of IAMS UK comments: “The UK is a nation of pet lovers, so at IAMS, we felt the Oscars was the perfect opportunity to remind us the important place pets have in all aspects of our lives, even in art and cinema. It’s delightful to see that classic stars, such as Lassie still come out on top for UK cat and dog owners as well as some of the more current characters, such as Puss in Boots. And as for cats making the best villains, it must be their mischievous personalities coming out but that’s why we love them so much!

“At IAMS, we understand the relationship we have with our pets and know that owners want to give their pet the very best so we need to make sure every bowl counts and that we’re providing them with a complete and balanced diet that gives them with all the nutrients they need to thrive.”

IAMS know that it’s important to make every bowl count as what pets eat isn’t always what pets need so as well as offering your pet a 100% complete and balanced diet, IAMS cat and dog food is packed with the advance nutrition pets need for a strong immune system and a shiny coat. Plus it is free from added artificial flavours and colourings, for high quality nutrition only.

  1. The first time I saw Puss in Boots on screen I said he’d been created by a cat person, he’s just spot on.

  2. I laughed out loud when I saw those Siamese from Lady and the Tramp still held top position as baddies. Not easy considering they have over 60 years of competition.

  3. I love Puss in Boots, what those eyes can do is just so…realistic! I also love the Lady and the Tramp Siamese cats I used to sing that ‘we are Siamese if you please…’ song over and over when I was younger :).

  4. Blofeld’s white cat should have got a mention. OK, she/he never did much on screen, but we all knew who the evil mastermind behind S.P.E.C.T.R.E really was.
