One very special cat called Smokey has been crowned the winner, after receiving the most votes from our subscribers.

In fact, Smokey won in a landslide, getting 23 per cent of the votes, with her nearest competitor Sir Snuffy, nominated by Tess Vandermaal, coming in second with 6 per cent of the vote.

Smokey’s proud owner Sue Chapman, is “thrilled” about her 3-year-old companion’s success and described her as a “playful” English Blue Cross.

“She is an indoor cat which suits her as she loves the aircon, watching TV and generally being boss of the house,” Miss Chapman said.

“Smokey is very loveable and is happy to cuddle up on the bed.

“She is possibly spoiled as we all love her … she even has her own lounge chair.”

WIN: Win $20,000 cash or $100 gift cards

Miss Chapman said Smokey had a “gorgeous personality but with a bit of attitude”.

“She is always entertaining, especially when she decides to run flat out, up and down the hallway,” she said.

Smokey became a part of Miss Chapman’s family when she was a kitten and Miss Chapman picked her up from a local owner.
