Most Witless-Looking Cats: The Challenge


Felines: they're all malevolent masterminds, aren't they? "Sensitive", "troubled", "intellectual", frustrated by the obstacles their physical form puts between them building their own evil grass roots empire or securing an appearance on QI. Well... maybe, but it would be wrong to say that the cat universe is entirely free of 18 carat morons: you only have to look at the above photo of my own supremely brainless feral, Pablo, in his "pass me the remote control and a cold one!" pose to realise that there's a certain beauty to cat cretinitude just as there is to scheming cat intelligence.

In an attempt to acknowledge this - and also because the Hard-Looking Cats competition the other week was a good laugh - littlecatdiaries is now holding a competition to find its readers' most witless-looking cat. It's simple: dig out what you think it a pic of your moggy looking genuinely idiotic, then send it to underthepaw@tom-cox.com, including your name and postal address. The closing date is 30th July, at which point I'll be uploading the twelve strongest entries and giving readers chance to influence the outcome. The top three submissions will each win a signed copy of Under The Paw: Confessions Of A Cat Man.

Tough challenge to pick only one from this bunch. I like Abby. She only needs a beer and a packet crisps to complete the picture.

Bubbles looks like he's been on the booze and Borris is just too cute!
