Cuba is a tough looking cookie!!! He looks like no cat i;ve seen before! And he has brown fur, I've never seen a brown cat before, i want him!

Derdru said...

For me it has to be a tie between Sox and Grebo...I wouldn't mess with either of them!!!

Wow, Gao looks so stern! That line from Star Wars is just the thing, I LOVE him!

Anonymous said...

The cat Gao is giving you such a withering stare, he doesn't have to look mean to frighten you! Brrrr!

jmuhj said...

Wow! These are some tough customers, all right. But Fluffy from Helge wins, claws down. NO ONE better mess with THIS kitten.

Such cold disdain on Gao's face! It makes you feel little and scared. This is STYLE!

librarian said...

Definitely Scratch from Hayley - there is something truly demonic about that cat

If there was a cat mafia, Buster would be the Godfather!

magicv8 said...

If Buster dishes it out as well as his wounds say he takes it, he's the one.

Go Luke! Pigeon... it's what's for dinner...

Henry Thomas said...

Cuba for looking the tougest, Scratch for just looking insane!

Naphtaline said...

vote for Scratch evil and funny at the same time! HAHAHAH

Elinor said...

Frosty is the one that scares the bejesus out of me. Those eyes - they look right through you! I can see why he gets his name.
Scratchy is a real cutie, and I don't get why he was entered in this competition. I just want to cuddle him...

tim relf said...

Sox takes it for me. Looks like a 50-year-old nightclub bouncer!

Tom said...

Thanks for all your comments. This is going to be one tough contest to judge but I think The Bear has the critical acumen required.

Anonymous said...

GAO!!! He's so cool!!!

Hayley said...

As the owner of Scratch I know he is a hard cat. He was ran over as a kitten and broke his pelvis and front leg. He couldn't walk and had to be in cage for 3 months and have a pin put in his front leg! He rules the roost in our house now with my other 3 cats... they don't take him on! Every toy I buy is immediately destroyed as you can see from the pic! He is also famous for his somersaults too! We know him at home as the dark lord and the destroyer!

It's gotta be General Sox. "Come on you cowards! A dog is nothing to be afraid of...!" Yep, I can definitely see it. And I always wondered what happened to Blofield's cat in his retirement...you're not fooling anyone, "Furball" :P I love this competition!

Cuba looks amazing, he's not a cat, he's a gangster for sure!

Anonymous said...

I wouldn't mess with Cuba! Havana's have amazing personality and he also has a sad tale to tell, so no wonder he looks so tough!

Anonymous said...

Gao is the Winner! He makes me feel like confessing anything so he'll stop staring at me like that!

Anonymous said...

My vote is for GAO!!!

Anonymous said...

Definitely Gao! He would be Emperor Palpatine's cat, if he had one!

Vittoria said...

My vote is obviously for Gao!!

Anonymous said...

My vote is for Cuba

Hilary said...

Furball! Yes. LOL

Anonymous said...

Gao, and no one else! Find another cat who can give you that Stare, if you can!

Fiona said...

Is it just me or does Lucas look like Jabba the Hutt from Star Wars? I'm wondering if he's named after George Lucas himself. He looks as if he'd like to keep his humans as slaves in collars and chains like Jabba kept Princess Leia.

Anonymous said...

Please vote for Cuba! x

Andrée said...

wow! What a bunch! I'm glad I don't come across them on a dark night!

Anonymous said...

Think furball and Grebo should do a grumpiest cat face off, hirarious

Kieran said...

Is it me or does Cuba have a look of snoop doogie dog?

Anonymous said...

They are all soooooo mean! --but Luke gets my vote 'cause I have been on the receiving end of his ruthless bite and been shredded countless times by his claws (as have many, many birds and mice)! --He just got me from the top of the newel on the stairs! :-0

Emily said...

I like Buster the best; looks like he's been in one or two scrapes. Very tough.
