With a majority vote they’ve won by a landslide, so here they are telling you what’s new pussycat!

We recently blogged about the National Portrait Gallery’s Pets in Portraits book. We were fortunate enough to attend the book’s launch where the winner of their #PetsinPortraits competition was revealed. With a menagerie of animals to choose from – dog, birds, lizards, fish and more, it was a kitty who came out top. Entitled 'Attention Seeker' by Carmen Echeverría and Irene Lopez, this sweet portrait of Carmen being interrupted by her enthusiastic cat Lia was selected as the winning modern day pet masterpiece.
Until next time… Alex & the #Catarama brothers.
