The judges have deliberated long and hard about the winner of the “humiliate-your-cat-by-altering-his-visage” contest. In the end, it came down to a scruff-and-scruff race between Bobby (owner of Barbara) and Kink (owner of Doc Bill). Intensive rumination, following a stiff dose of prayer to Ceiling Cat, has led us to declare the winner as. . .
Barbara will receive an autographed edition of WEIT, complete with hand-drawn cat. Here’s a little bit she wrote about Bobby:
Bobby was a tiny kitten, ten to twelve weeks old when she came to live with us. My daughter and I were fostering her, along with a feral kitten, Pepper. Of course, when it became time to adopt both of them out, we decided to keep them. Bobby, who used to be the tiniest kitten, is now the biggest one of our three cats and a very talented model.
And here’s the runner-up, Kink, submitted by Doc Bill (I don’t feel too bad because Kink already won a contest). Doc Bill receives my warm congratulations.
Thanks to all who entered their cats. I’m sorry that the rest didn’t win (this isn’t a website, though, where “all must have prizes”!), but you have the consolation of having amused many readers, and my appreciation for your fortitude in getting your moggy to sit still long enough for a picture!
I’ll add one meme that nobody seems to have thought of; this one’s from Richard Wiseman‘s site:
