Twenty adorable cats impressed a committee to advance as finalists in our Cutest Cat competition. Here are all 20.

In preparation for the month of cats, we have decided to remember the winners from last year.

We have a request, asking readers to send us their cutest cat pictures. We promise to take 100 cats, but our inbox immediately filled to capacity. It got to the point where we had to apply “paws” to the entries.

Last year, a group of people gathered and combed through the pictures. With the difficult task of selecting 20 cute kitties.
