The Third Annual Witless-Looking Cats Competition: The Winners!

The standards of entries for this year's Most Witless-Looking Cat competition were higher than ever. I doubt I'd have managed a decision alone without getting a headache from the sheer brilliance of the photos, so many thanks to my fellow judges Laura, Pat, Jo, Katia and Linz for their help. So many came so close, but the three moronic moggers below - in no particular order - have been decreed the most supremely idiotic. Each will win a signed copy of Under The Paw...

Milu from Juliana:

Nacho from Hollie:

---- from Lisa:

And a special mention goes to Minchie from Peggy (although the witlessness was just that bit forced to be in the running for a prize):


Those who weren't successful can read more about witless - and not-so witless cats - in Under The Paw and (published in January, but available to pre-order now!) Talk To The Tail.

Absolutely laughed aloud! Poor Milu from Juliana. Some things just can't be done while on one's back!

Tom! I ahve been waiting for the witless cat competition as I live with two of the most witless creatures ever created in the cat world. However as I am not on facebook I missed it :-( Can you put it on here next time??

Linz said...

Fantastic group of mogs! Lol'd for real and had a tea/nostril incident more than once. Well done all you top cats!

Is being tuxedo a predeterminant of witlessness, I wonder? ConCATs to the winners who so richly deserve their prizes.

My Tarifa definitely should have been one of them, though.

Hi Dear,
I'd like to thank you so much.
Milu and her 9 brothers and sisters are so proud now! :)
I wish each human could adopt a lovely cat. They make our life really special.
Warmly,
Juliana & Milu
