The Big Cat Nap highlights the plight of some of the world’s most beautiful and endangered animals through a range of sleep-themed activities. Why not organize a ‘wear pyjamas to work or school day’ and collect cash from those who take part? Or try a sponsored sleep-in? Male lions sleep for up to 23 hours a day, so you’ll be in good company!
If that sounds a bit too energetic, you could take a sleepy pet selfie (human involvement optional) and share it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #BigCatNap. Born Free will choose a winner which will be used to promote the following year’s event.
Congratulations to winner Lesley Parr whose cat Angharad is now the face of #BigCatNap 2017. Rescued in 2011 from the Cats Protection, the name Angharad derives from the Welsh 'cariad' meaning 'much loved/cherished' - a name we find to be very fitting! See the #BigCatNap 2016 shortlist here!
