A fat grumpy cat, a dog behind the driver’s wheel and a very tired ferret – it can only be the Comedy Pet Photo Awards, which has just published this year's 25 shortlisted images that are bound to put a smile on your face. 

Launched in 2020, by co-founders Paul Joynson Hicks and Tom Sullam, the Comedy Pet Photo Awards not only aims to gather the funniest pet photos but also promotes positive animal welfare. This year’s shortlist is as good as ever, featuring an unaware kitten about to be pounced on, a sleeping dog curled up with an orangutan (a stuffed one, we might add) and a dog and its owner who has the same hair.
