And the runners up are . . .

We’re very excited to announce that, after careful deliberation, Cara and Mike have chosen the cat that will appear on the front cover of the latest title in the Complete Companions for AQA A series, Psychology AS: The Revision Companion. The response to our competition was fantastic, and even choosing the shortlist was a big challenge.

So, a big thank you to all the cats who allowed their owners to photograph them and put them forward for the competition. We’ve loved seeing them all! Before we reveal the winner, it only feels right to devote a blog post to the very worthy runners up.

In no particular order, here’s a selection of the cats who’ve been brightening up the walls at OUP HQ:


Binky Bouquet, owned by Kim Higgins of Wyke College


Tango, owned by Jo Haycock of Newport High School


Monty, owned by Sophia Afsar of Berkhamsted School


Houdini, owned by Sarah Jane Paterson of The Boswells School


Hector, owned by Ellie Barnard of The John Henry Newman Catholic School
