Professor Alastor “Mad Eye” Moody Is the Cutest Cat in Washington

The winner of Washingtonian‘s 2017 Cutest Cat Contest is…Alastor! A panel of independent judges selected Alastor from the Top 10 vote-getters in the contest. Alastor (a.k.a. Professor Alastor “Mad Eye” Moody) isn’t just cute, he’s a wizard, as indicated by his photo and his bio:

Professor Alastor “Mad Eye” Moody was adopted last June through the Washington Humane Society. Before being adopted, he fought to rid the Wizarding world of dark magic (he doesn’t talk about it much, but we think that’s how he lost his eye). Now he lives in a life of leisure on Capitol Hill, milling about his apartment and keeping a close watch on the birds that frequent the bird feeder outside “his” window. He enjoys the finer things in life, especially delicacies like tortillas and bread which *magically* seem to disappear from the pantry from time to time. You’ll also find him lurking around late night left over pizza, waiting for a chance at the crust. He loves long walks down the hall and across his people’s faces in the mornings. Alastor also enjoys having his belly rubbed, typically right before he does something mischievous. He’s a cool cat who loves people, dogs, and most of all attention!

Thanks to everyone who entered. And thank you to Alastor for being such a wonderful cat.
