Time Out UAE Virtual Pet Show: judges' views group 5

Five top entries so far from across the categories, from dogs to fish

Time Out UAE Virtual Pet Show: judges' views group 5

Last month we launched the Time Out UAE Virtual Pet Show, in association with The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com, to celebrate the best pets in the UAE. And we've been amazed by your entries. We've had guinea pigs, rabbits and hamsters, fish, dogs, cats and horses.

With 12 categories to enter (click here for more) you could even win a prize from The Pet Shop.

All photos will be considered for the finals, but across the competition we’ll be sending a selection of your photos to the judges to get their thoughts. (For more about the judges, click here).

But for now here are five photos of pets you’ve sent in, and what the judges think about them. For more judges' views, click here. Entries close on Thursday August 13.

Fatty owned by Caroline Muller


Category: purebred cat

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

Fatty likes snuggling up like a burrito and day dreaming about all the burritos she’d like to eat.

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

How comfortable can one be? Gorgeous Fatty obviously enjoys some snuggling.

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

I'm in love with this gray shade and that eyes colour, so unique.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

I guess Fatty’s owner has just had her bed commandeered. Oh well, there’s always the sofa for you, hooman.

Hammy & Terry @hammy_and_terry


Category: cutest pet

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

These two give new meaning to the phrase “ride or die homies”.

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

Such a great couple. Teamwork is definitely their thing, plus looking super-cute.

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

How adorable are these buddies? One of the cutest tiny creatures I've ever seen.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

If these two don’t have their own YouTube channel something is amiss. Would love to watch the adventures of Hammy and Terry every day.

Spike owned by Ryan Reslan


Category: most stylish pet

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

Spike is not just a good boi. He’s a very smart boi too.

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

Love the fancy look. Whatever you need to know, just ask the best looking Mr. Spike.

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

What a smart looking fella, he is such a character.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

Another stylish dog with poor eyesight, what is it with these guys? Love the big happy smile.

Sunshine owned by Paul McCallion


Category: best rescue cat

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

This pretty girl is the sunshine of her hooman’s life.

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

What a beautiful soft girl, shining so bright.

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

She reflects her name so well. I love how she is full of warmth and her coat is like rays of sunshine.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

Rescue cat Sunshine looks like she’s more than happy to put those days on the streets behind her and enjoy the spoils of being a loved pet.

Ziggy owned by Jade Simmons


Category: cutest pet

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

Ziggy may look like a delicious piece of fried chicken but he’s definitely no chicken at heart.

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

Ziggy is so adorable. I love his begging eyes. Who could resist this boy?

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

I love the vibe of Ziggy. So poised yet playful, so cute.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

Oh. My. Gosh. How cute! Great haircut, Ziggy, great haircut.
