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!
Settle down and join in our 2017 Big Cat Nap next year!
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.
