With her piercing blue eyes, majestic fur and overall enviable good looks, we couldn't think of anyone more qualified to help us find the Most Beautiful Cat than – you guessed it – Grumpy Cat.
We put the call out on Twitter, and you delivered with your prettiest kitty glamour shots. When freshly minted 2-year-old Grumpy Cat stopped by the PEOPLE studio earlier this month to promote her latest collaboration with Friskies alongside her owner, Tabatha Bundesen, we let her judge the cutest, furriest contenders. (Watch the video above to see who won.)
We'd say she was super thrilled with all of the fabulous felines, but let's be real – she wasn't even happy when we showed her a picture of Channing Tatum.

"She was dying," recalls her mom, Nancy Day, 66. "There was nothing we could do to reach her."

Remember when your cat was just a ball of fluff that fit into the palm of your hand? Or when your puppy unwittingly did floppy somersaults because he hadn't grown into his massive feet?
Until we can figure out how to bottle up all that painfully cute youth and sniff it whenever we're having a bad day, here's the next best thing: 7 then-and-now photos of cats and dogs.
The shots of pets with their owners young and then old makes us crack the goofiest smile – and then swim in a pool of tears under our desks. Whoever decided that pets have to get old should be forced to watch Lassie reruns for the rest of their lives.
