Ziggy's owners say winning the Kent Pets Tournament would mean the world to him.

The first thing he would do is celebrate with his brother Louie by giving him a big hug or sharing the good news with his labrador pal Jet who he likes sharing a smooch with.

As his family celebrated Ziggy passing his training on Tuesday, it would be a massive achievement for him to become a qualified sniffer dog and voted the county's sweetheart all in one week.

He's been on quite the journey - being adopted in Leicestershire, meeting R2D2 at Comic Con, and now he's beaten a Pringle thief cockapoo and an affectionate chicken in a cuteness competition.

Whether he ends up claiming the title of Kent's Cutest Pet or not - Ziggy will spend some time relaxing over the summer before returning to work as a security dog.

Noah the house cat

Though Ziggy's canine charm may be cute to some, many cat owners would argue the mischief of their feline friends is so much more adorable.

Noah is notorious for his cheeky antics around the house, for example, stealing the family's dinner while they're distracted with weighing out his kibble.

He has even earned the nickname 'trip-hazard' for his tendency to take a quick nap on the stairs.

As we have mentioned before, not only is Noah a cat of mischeif - but also one of class.

Noah prefers the fanciest food his owners can find and will only drink water if it is from a human glass. But if he's really thirsty, the fish pond will do.

But this house cat loves nothing more than a cuddle at the end of the day - especially when he's cradled in the arms of his owners like a small fluffy baby.
