Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild

We’re delighted to announce the winner of our #BigCatNap 2017 is … Maddie!

About 8 years old, Maddie is a rescue cat from Cats Protection who owner, Alex Jones, adopted along with another cat, Monty in 2011. Alex was delighted that Maddie had been chosen as our winner of the competition, and said: “Maddie is an absolute lap cat, who likes nothing better than sleeping, chasing moths and (of course) having lots of human attention! Her favourite thing is to jump on the garden table and be brushed - which she would do all day long if she could! I’m so please that she will be fronting the 2018 Big Cat Nap and helping to raise awareness of the work Born Free does to protect big cats in the wild.”

Thank you for the hundreds of beautiful #SleepySelfies of your adored pets, it was an incredibly hard choice to make! Do join us next year :)

Settle down and join in our Big Cat Nap 2018 (coming next summer)

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 FacebookTwitter or Instagram using #BigCatNap. Born Free will choose a winner which will be used to promote the following year’s event.
