Time Out UAE Virtual Pet Show: judges' views group 3

Five top entries so far from across the categories, from rescue cats to skateboarding dogs

Time Out UAE Virtual Pet Show: judges' views group 3

Here in the UAE we have some amazing pets. They’ve kept us company during these unusual past few months during our Time In, and they provide hours of entertainment.

And that’s why we launched the Time Out UAE Virtual Pet Show, in association with The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com.

The Time Out UAE Virtual Pet Show is here to champion all UAE pets, from cats and dogs to rabbits and guinea pigs. We’re even supporting the fish (although we’d love to see more of these).

We want you to send in your best photos and videos of your pet – and you could even win a prize from The Pet Shop.

All photos will be considered for the finals, but across the competition we’ll be 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.

Coco owned by Nesa Ganwani

Category: cutest pet

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

Coco is not just good looking, but has cool skills to match. That’s a top combination.

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

“It’s so cool with new gadgets, this board is so speedy that my tongue sticks out.”

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

What a stunning and unique kid. I love his playful vibe along with his mysteriously hidden eyes.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

Dogs that skateboard! My favourite subsection of animals. Can they see where they’re going though?

Galaxy owned by Sally Holland

Category: best rescue cat

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

When you’re a bundle of fluff this cute, it’s no wonder you can spend all day just hanging around being waited on hand and paw.

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

“I love chilling in my tower, not bothering what’s going on down there on the lower levels.”

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

Galaxy carries the full weight of her name in their eyes. I also love the amazing fur colours and pat-terns.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

Wow. Totally stunning and obviously making herself very much at home since being rescued.


Lana Del Rey @bearlot_thechows

Category: most stylish pet

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

Wow! What a stylish way to keep that gorgeous face wrinkle free. Can they sing like Lana for extra votes?

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

“Not sure what this thing on my head is, my human says it helps keep my beautiful fur from getting sunburned. I definitely think it makes it easier to spot any other gorgeous dogs.”

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

I believe her name says it all, such a graceful diva! I love the unpredictable stylish accessory.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

I have to be honest, not what I was expecting Lana Del Rey to look like. I wonder if she can hold a tune?

Noel owned by Marianne D’Souza

Category: best purebred dog

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

A simple pop of colour to bring out those handsome clean looks of Noel, nothing else needed.

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

“Human, did you say please look cute and adorable? Say no more, you got it.”

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

Noel has the purest puppy eyes. I can tell that he is so lovable, kind, and gentle.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

Tiny legs but a big personality. Too much cute.

Yalla Bailey @yallabailey

Category: best purebred cat

Andy Gould, The Pet Shop / dubaipetfood.com

Stunning shot of those stunning eyes.

Nynne Hesselsoe, Kittysnip

“Did I hear the word treats? Just debating if I should risk tangle my stunning fur when moving.”

Lana Azad Karim, RAK Animal Welfare Centre

I'm in love with Yalla's eyes. It's like looking into an amazing gem from another planet.

Paul Clifford, Time Out UAE

Just look at that ruff and those eyes. Yalla Bailey looks high-maintenance, but worth it.
