More moggies are required for our Pets on Parade competition, sponsored by Husse Derbyshire.

The first cute cat pictures have been submitted for our contest.However, Belper’s dog lovers are still streets ahead when it comes to taking pictures of their prize pooches.

So to re-dress the balance were appealing again for more feline photos this week.

Elisa Earl, of Chestnut Avenue, Belper, sent in an adorable picture of her kitten Smokey and Lindsey Harper, of Walcote Close, submitted a picture of 11-month-old tabby Graham.

Meanwhile, deaf rescued lurcher Bentley, along with pug cross Snoop, were among the canines captured on film.

They are all in with a chance of winning six months’ worth of free pet food, with second place receiving a three-month supply and third place a Husse hamper.

Send your entries in jpeg format by email to, or hard copy prints to Pets on Parade, Belper News, 8 Heanor Road, Ilkeston, Derbsyhire, DE7 8ER or drop them off at our community postbox at News corner, top of King Street, Belper.

Just two pictures per pet and you MUST include your full name, address and day and evening contact numbers.

The competition is only open to cat and dog owners.

We will run entries that make the final at a later date when readers will be able to vote for their favourite, with the one with the most votes declared our winner.

Usual Belper News competition rules apply.
