Time Out UAE Virtual Pet Show: judges' views group 6

Five top entries so far from across the categories, from cats to hamsters

Time Out UAE Virtual Pet Show: judges' views group 6

Whether you have a fabulous fish or a charming cat – we’re celebrating the UAE’s very best pets.

Last month we launched the Time Out UAE Virtual Pet Show, in association with The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com, to honour all the awesome animals out there.

We have categories celebrating rescues to purebreds, cute pets to the most stylish out there.

We also have video categories for the best trick and waggiest tail – so getting submitting your skillful pets.

All photos will be considered for the finals, but across the competition we’ve been 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 today, and this is the final group of comments, but sit tight as the shortlists and winners will be announced next week.

Coco Allison @coco.allison.dubai


Category: cutest pet

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

Coco is a boss dog that knows what they want. And that’s more treats.

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

Wonderful posing. Coco Allison is looking so adorable with her red rose.

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

Love this dog, they carry a lot of sophistication with its looks and I adore the romantic rose accessory.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

That’s quite the look Coco – top marks for accessorising.

Leo owned by Jacqueline Sulistyo


Category: best rescue cat

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

Leo loves waiting for his hooman to come home so he can get some cuddles.

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

From king of the streets, to king of the apartment.

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

Leo looks like a thinker; I love how he's contemplating life by the window and love his overall character and look.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

Leo is looking at the outside world and thinking “I like it much better in here, thank you very much.”

Fish owned by Sami Shariff


Category: most expressive fish face

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

Hmm… something smells fishy!

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

Beautiful bright colours and clear eyes that makes you want to dive into the ocean.

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

I’m not an expert on fish, but I can tell that this is one good looking and is a symmetrical golden fella.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

Does this guy have a name? Is it a space fish? I like him very much. Welcome to Earth.

Wilma owned by Rachael Mani


Category: best rescue dog

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

Wilma prefers naps over walkies. She won’t say no to cuddles either.

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

Yes, I am lying in my bed as instructed. But turn your back two minutes if you dare...

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

I can tell that Wilma is such a kind and loving creature just by those puppy eyes.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

Look at those big brown eyes. Wilma just looks lovely. What a good girl.

Cassie owned by Kseniia P


Category: cutest pet

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

Cassie knows she can get away with just about anything with her innocent eyes and pink nose.

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

Looks can be so deceiving. Cute, yes, innocent no way!

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

What a cutie pie.  Adorable eyes mixed with those unbelievably cute ear folds.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

Oh my! What a sad little face. Either Cassie has just done something very bad and is trying to cover up for it, or she’s in need of a big squish.
