‘Britain’s Next Pet Model’ – Vote for the shortlisted

Hi everyone,

While our two didn’t make it into the short listing for the cat faces of Amazon Pets we thought it was important to share with you an update that voting for our favourites is now open!

Full details on the competition below.

Amazon.co.uk unveils Britain’s most adorable pets in the running to become the Face of Amazon Pets 2016 following 28,000 submissions

Winners will strut their stuff in a series of ‘Petwalk’ videos as they become the official models for the Amazon.co.uk Pets Store

Pet lovers have been fighting tooth and claw to ensure their beloved companion becomes Amazon’s next pet model, following a nationwide hunt to find the first ever Face of Amazon Pets. Today, Amazon.co.uk has revealed the 35 most adorable pets as judged by animal lovers across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, to make the shortlist having notched up the most social media likes, shares and comments using #AmazonPets.

The competition, which launched earlier this month, has resulted in 28,000 ‘paw-some’ submissions on social media, with dogs, cats, reptiles, horses, birds, small furries and fish all being nominated by their devoted owners. The shortlisted pets are fast becoming the new pet stars of the internet and can be viewed at amazon.co.uk/faceofamazonpets, where the public can cast their vote from today until 5th June.

“We’ve received so many adorable submissions to become the Face of Amazon Pets and it was tough to narrow it down to the top 35,” said Melis Del Rey, Amazon Pets Store Manager and one of the Face of Amazon Pets judges. “We’d like to thank pet lovers for the phenomenal response. Our shortlisted pets are well on their way to becoming internet sensations. It’s clear that our pets mean the world to us and are an extension of our family that we’re proud to show off.”

The five short-listed Face of Amazon Pets entries for the cat category are:

They will take part in a photo and video shoot where each of the seven animals will star in their own ‘Petwalk’ video, sporting the latest must-have products from the Amazon.co.uk’s Pets Store.

      I think black and black and white cats have it generally more difficult in these things but my two won a different competition recently so I’m not too worried. 🙂

  1. Paula Light says:

    Agree that yours should have been chosen. Barring that, Apollo does look very British, with that jaded expression. If he could speak, he’d say something perfectly cutting.

  2. crystaleagle24 says:

    Voted for Ted, but it was close between him and Milk. Voted in the other categories as well.

  3. crystaleagle24 says:

    I’m sure I read somewhere that black coated animals are harder to photograph/film for some reason, perhaps that’s why your two beauties didn’t make the final five.

  4. Vive les chats! says:

    Yes, definitely little Scrappy for me. What a face!
    Never mind Nubsy and Ollie, have some treats and cuddles and you will forget all about it.
    You know you are both gorgeous, so who cares about a ConTest?
