Anybody with a cat and a piece of paper can do this. Try it at home and send me the results. There’s an autographed book for the winner IF the winner is really good. I reserve the right to determine that. Deadline: January 1, 2013.
Might be an interesting challenge…to do this without making the cat look undignified….
Even easier with a piece of paper and a dab of Marmite.
I’ll just have to get us a cat [exit stage left, clutching a sack...]
Works with dogs too .. http://www.flickr.com/photos/fboyd/8236659482/
No contest; the cat pic is WAY better. Dogs already look goofy without paper!
I knew Eddie never had a chance. But was fun anyway.
For example, dog tongues are known to LOL a lot.
that definitely made me smile, and giggle a little
How about a picture of a cat with horns, a pitchfork and a tail? Oh wait, they already have a tail…
And multiple pitchforks at the ends of the paws…
Anybody with a cat and a piece of paper can do this.
Inaccurate. Revised version: anybody with a cooperative cat and a piece of paper can try doing this.
If the cat won’t cooperate then Photoshop will.
This effect works best if the cat’s lower face is white. My two moggies are tortoise-shell and solid black –but this just makes me extra-motovated to submit a picture!
If the cat’s black then use black paper.
Then white paint for sabre teeth. Or maybe big Cheshire smile.
Damn it, I don’t have a piece of paper
Knowing cats, the paper would be nommed before the camera clicks.
My cats are all eager to try this, but they want to know the rules. I’m supposed to ask about size of paper, use of color, and whether the art must be hand-drawn. Also whether you would like your car washed weekly until you choose a winner.
Now Comrade Nikolai wants to know if we are allowed multiple entries, whether the paper held in front of the cat can only cover the lower face, or whether it could be larger? Does the paper even have to be paper, or could another material be used? Clearly we need a lot of guidance.
One entry per person, paper should at least allow one to see part of the cat’s face, and another material can be used. The art needn’t be hand-drawn but if it is the chances of winning will be increased.
No need to wash my car.
Thank you for the clarification. We are now assembling mask-making materials, clamps, etc.
We lost our beloved family cat yesterday. Put a sad face on me.
Sorry for you loss. It is tough. We had trouble losing our cat and had to go out to the human society and get evil sibling kitties who now inappropriately run off with yarn skeins and maul toes. When your grieving is done, there will be someone waiting for you at the shelter.
human = humane
Many thanks. I’m sure we’ll further adopt some day. So far my teenage daughter hasn’t brought up the subject.
I don’t think our domestic short-hair would have stayed still long enough for mugshot photography anyway.
Condolences, Jim. That is rough.
So sorry. There aren’t the words….
He was very cooperative.
Do you have any idea what my cat would do to me if I tried that? I’d prefer trying it with pope.
My entry is ready. Can you tell me how to send it?
Just Google my name and The University of Chicago and it will lead you to my work email address.
I follow your breadcrumbs.
