Leiden’s Cutest Pet Competition

Everyone thinks their pet is the cutest but now is the time to put your claim to the test in our Cutest Pet Competition run in collaboration with Paws n’ People. I may own three cats and seven pairs of cat shoes but I won’t let my love of all things feline bias me. I am open to any cute pet you can throw a picture of at me.

The winner of the Cutest Pet Competition will win an original watercolour portrait of their pet by the lovely and talented Art by Lexi as well as all the glory of the title of Cutest Pet. All you have to do is:


Post a Photo of Your Pet on Facebook or Instagram

Use the #LeidenPets

You can tag us too if you like @leiden.magazine but this isn’t compulsory


It’s so easy! The competition closes on 5pm Monday 30 October. The winner will be announced that evening!


And why not come along to the Paws n People dog-friendly markets on Saturday 29 October. The event raises money for animal rescue and wildlife conservation. There will be plenty of amazing stores and activities to enjoy alongside your beloved pet.
