Before you can look at these cat pictures you have to read the biology post about pronking (just below)!
On December 1 I announced yet another cat contest in which one winner would be chosen to receive an autographed and cat-drawing-embellished book. (BTW, I am still sending out books from the DWB offer, and have about eleven to go, so please be patient.) The deadline was January 1, and the goal was to take a piece of paper or other accoutrement and modify your cat’s face in a humorous way. One example was this:
I received eleven “official” entriess and will show them all here, numbered. Now I am going to make the final decision, but will also be informed by readers’ opinions if they’re expressed eloquently and clearly. So weigh in with your favorite number below. Remember, only one opinion per customer, and no botting (that means you, Butter!). Vote by number for one of the 11 entries; the winner gets an autographed book.

Cats are not cooperative:
Vote for one of the 11, but remember, your votes aren’t binding on me—though they could influence me.
Thanks for all the entrants who risked life and limb to humiliate their moggies but entertain the rest of us!
