Vote for America's Next Top Cat Model Now!

CUTE UPDATE: Thanks to all who voted! Voting is now closed. See the winner here!

The time has finally come... the America's Next Top Cat Model entries have been reviewed by The Cute Crew judges (no small feat, I tell you), and the five finalists have been chosen!

It's an exciting day here at the Cute. After over a week of anticipation, we can't wait to see who the winner will be!

These fabulous felines have worked hard to get where they are now. Photo shoots that yield amazing pictures like this are not easy. It takes grooming, treats, toys, humans begging them to look this way or that, just the right expression and the perfect amount of cattitude to pull off such gorgeous shots.

Please take a look at the five finalists below and vote by picking your choice on the poll to the right! Good luck to all these pretty kitties!










Princess

Lillian

Tigger


Misha

Monkey Cat
It was EXTREMELY hard to narrow the finalists down. So many potential su-purr-models entered to be America's Next Top Cat Model!

That said, there were a few fancy felines that were so close to making the cut that it tugged on Your Daily Cute's heartstrings not to be able to choose all of them -- so we dedicated a page just for them... Please check out America's Next Top Cat Model honorable mentions page!

(Feel free to leave comments there about those beautiful kitties, too!)

Notes: The finalists were chosen by a panel of five judges we like to call "The Cute Crew" -- friends and family of YourDailyCute.com. Special thanks to Evyan, Bob, Maraly and Cathy for helping with the contest!

  2. As the human who Lillian owns, I can tell you she is so very delighted to have made it this far. She's quite shy about it :)

  16. Freddie Girl and I voted for Tigger because not only being a beautiful cat, it takes a lot of dignity and attitude to sit in a pot like that....and have your picture taken! You go Tigger! Vicky

  23. Even though Princess owns me...I voted for Tigger. I thought he could use a few votes. All the cats are so awesome, it's difficult to choose.

    Oh..sorry Princess..you're still pretty special to me..

  28. Wow! They are all so beautiful. It's too hard to pick just one. Scatter seems kinda fond of Princess though.

  29. I can imagine how tough it was to narrow down to the top 5. All 5 are beautiful. I voted for Princess under pressure from Tuffy. I think he has a crush on her.

    I was surprised to see that Tigger only has 29 votes. I wish I could vote more as Tigger is gorgeous and deserves more votes. Sorry Tigger!

  34. They all look great, but I prefer moggies to purebreds, so I had fewer to choose from. Still made it difficult, so I chose the one who seemed to have the most purr-sonality.

    All very pretty.

  35. All cats are special but Princess has my vote. Glitter X

  36. I like Tigger, but my daughter has already voted for Lillian (who is also cute) so I couldn't vote. I can't understand why Tigger has so few votes. Maybe because it is a very candid shot and it's hard to see him from that distance.

    Vote for Tigger or Lillian.

  37. C'mon Lillian. Yours is the cutest pic. C'mon VOTE FOR LILLIAN!

  38. I hafta vote for Princess...she's my Sister. Maybe she's a pure bred and maybe I'm a "mutt" but we still love each other...

    C'mon Princess..we all know that you are truly the most beautiful cat in the World..

    TIGGER

    Princess is truly a regal cat! Underneath that aloof air beats a loving little heart. Big brother Tigger is the great protector when he is not busy exploring the world

  40. Tigger says thank you for your votes, and you can see lots of her on www.bengaltalk.com

    My funny F3 seal lynx snow Bengal was 11 months old when I came round the corner and found her in the slow cooker base - no the pot wasn't in there! Luckily I grabbed the camera and took a couple of shots before she got bored and went off to make mischief with my other rescue cats!
