YES! It's official. Black cats are lucky. The winner of The Hunts Post Pet of the Year is a black cat called Bobster.

The feline owned by Deborah and Paul Davenport from Cambourne won the contest with 140 votes - and was way out ahead of all its rivals.

Bobster, aged four this month, beat his 100 rivals for the title and will now have a professional portrait taken of him by Constable Photography in St Neots.

Deborah said: "We are delighted that he won. He is a lovely cat, very friendly and very cuddly, he loves to be with people.

"We told all our friends that he was entering the competition, so they must have voted for him. We have had him since he was three months old. He is a rescued cat from the RSPCA."

Runner-up in the contest is Tessa, a Whippet and Labrador cross, aged 11, from Ramsey. Delighted owner, Emma Tipton said: "She is lovely, we got her from the RSPCA aged six months - we love her and she is spoilt!"
