The winners of the Comedy Pet Photo Awards 2023 have been revealed – and to our dismay, the grumpy fat cat did not win (insert sadface). However, the surly puss was pipped to the post by a pair of super-cute kittens – so all is still well in the world.  

The wonderful image A life Changing Experience features two rescue kittens, Max and Alex. They were photographed at the purrfect moment by their owner, Michel Zoghzoghi, to create an image that won Best Overall as well as the Best Cat Category.
