Here are a few more entries in the Cat Scan contest. Though they didn’t nab the top prize, they’re still nice scans.
From “early_cuyler”, who described this scan as “Basement cat rises from the deep to devour the unsuspecting noms.”
Joe Heath entered his cat Roo, along with this story:
We rescued her in Malaysia when she was approx 2 months old. She was malnourished to the point of looking like a skeleton, although with a conical projection out the side for the worms. She had scabies andevery other manner of nasty local issue. Our vet (for the other 2 UK originated cats) looked at her and picked her up by the scruff andsaid “where the hell did you get this thing?” Two years later she is fit as a fiddle, driving us crazy, and costing usa fortune to ship back to UK! We love her to bits! We called her Roo because her back legs are far longer than her frontlegs (or were, we’re not quite sure now)… hence kangeroo.
You can see “normal” pictures of Roo here.
Here is Karen’s cat Quentin, famed for his hairy toes:
And Stavana’s cat Contessa, with a brief story: “I brought her home from my grandmother’s farm as a malnourished kitten (one of ten farm kittens) last Christmas.”
