Meet the UK's Happiest Cat!

O2 have officially found the happiest cat in the UK. We’ve searched the nation’s moggies and had fun meeting some of the country’s cutest feline faces to find the cat with the best smile and now, we have a winner.

Lucius, the UK's Happiest Cat

This happy chap is two year old Lucius from Northampton and has become the new feline face of our O2 Refresh campaign. Lucius is the cat who really did get the cream and is now well on his way to finding cat stardom, along with a year’s supply of free cat food. Here’s a behind the scenes look at Lucius got to the top.

Lucius first came to our attention back in April, when we started our search for the UK’s happiest cat. We asked you to tweet us pictures of your cats looking their happiest, along with the hashtag #O2HappyCat, and we received loads of great photos of your cheerful furry friends. Check out these from Twitter users @Craigsanders585 @ChelseyJessieJ, @liverpool8178 and @bevstar83 for instance – definitely happy!

   

 

We then picked the cheeriest looking kitties and invited them along to London’s famous Pineapple Dance Studios. There they faced a gruelling panel of judges – singer and celebrity cat lover Sarah Harding, industry-renowned cat agent and expert Charlotte Wilde and O2’s Head of Creative, Kat Ward-Smith.

The judges loved meeting all your cats and although competition was tough, Lucius managed to woo the judges and triumph over the nation’s cat population to be crowned as the UK’s Happiest Cat.
Well done Lucius – don’t eat all that food at once!
