Our Furry Lockdown Legends competition with Rabbit Hill Country Store has come to an end – and we can now reveal the winner!

Bonnie the cat has been crowned as a furry lockdown legend after keeping her owners Andy and Lucy Mayes company during lockdown.

Gemma from the Rabbit Hill Country Store team presented Bonnie with her prize, including lots of treats and toys for her to get stuck into!

Owner Lucy told us why she believes Bonnie is a true lockdown legend:

“We rescued her last year and she’s just been absolutely fantastic. In the picture she was actually doing sit-ups with me, but she failed to get back up!

“She’s been fantastic at keeping us both company throughout lockdown.”

Gemma, one of the judges at Rabbit Hill that was involved in selecting the winning photo, said:

“Her photo really made me chuckle – I think because she looked exactly like I do during lockdown if I’m honest!

“We’ve got a lovely bag of food for her, litter tray liners, a few bags of Dreamies, a laser pen and a couple of jangly balls to keep her occupied.”

Here’s the moment Your Harrogate’s Nick Hancock and Gemma from Rabbit Hill crowned Bonnie a Furry Lockdown Legend:
