Competitive Napping Finalists 4

First into the ring today are Twinkie the Tiny Dog and his family. Some very serious competition here, I can tell you.





Twinkie and Frankie:

From Mind of Mog comes Ritzi, proving that not every cat can sleep on a ducky toilet seat and get away with it.

Next up, some very serious competition from Four Crazy Cats. How is anycat going to compete with Devon sleeping on the stove? And how come my mum doesn't let me sleep on the stove???




Next up, Kirby and Angel. They've entered the doubles competition here, showing off some excellent form.



(Angel's a bit shy)

Our next competitor is Percy. Look closely. Is that a tooth? A little bit of tongue?

Coming in now is Mischa from Stuff. That's a perfect kitty-sized napping spot but with a high danger rating!

Up next from Marg's Pets is Orange Boy, really upping the danger rating here by napping with Ande!

Goodness Gracie
! Here she is, showing some very good form.

Here comes one of our younger competitors, Sammy, showing some lovely head-pushing skills! And check out the paw placement!

From Jan's Funny Farm, we have Percy competing with a high danger rating because he is on Buddy's chair! Be careful Percy.

From Dog Foster Mom we have a couple of entries.

First up is Reese. I almost can't speak.

And here we have Bear, who I gather was a puppy bowl star, really giving it some cute with the paw in the water bowl:

Here is Mr Jinx from Manx Mnews, causing all the girls in the audience to freak out over that belly.

Last to compete today is Noll, showing that a serious mancat can be just as cute as the next guy.

hey Huffle Mawson,

Yet another batch of outstanding, creative competitors! You have your work cut out for you!

As a dog, I vote for Reese today. His napping position left me woofless!

Good luck to all the remarkable competitors!

Good luck with the judging!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Ha ha ha! Some of those photos are so funny! But really, napping on the stove is DANGEROUS!

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

MOL! Jet really knows how to be as loose as a goose! A skill needed during such competitions!

::yawnies:: are naps contagious like yawnies?

AttieCattie said...

this is all very impressive. i do not know how a winner can possibly be chosen. and you are right, HM. she would probably get it all wrong, so that is what snoopervising is for! and we are very good at it, aren't we!

The OP Pack said...

We give up - impossible to find THE best - they are all so good in so many different ways!!!

Woos, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Ina in Alaska said...

OMG fabulous pictures. Too many good ones to just pick one. Love the cat on the stove - WOW1!!

Eric and Flynn said...

All we can say is, we're glad we aren't judging this category.

Cat of Nine Tales said...

I see there is a kitchen catagory with stove sleeping! Wonderful batch of finalists!

Amy Lynn said...

Awwwww Twinkie and Frankie...I want to snuggle up with them!

Dog Foster Mom said...

Wonderful entries - thanks for posting all of them - it's great to see all the competitive nappers out there!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Well. we are behind in visiting but it worked out nicely because we get to see everyone at one time! Pick Gracie! No Pick Danielle! (Sorry, the boys both want their girlfriendcats to win and took over for a minute!)

We think EVERYONE looks like they could be professionals at naping - we love all the pictures! We knew this would be one of the hardest catagories!

Cyber-sibes said...

We're getting so many god ideas about places to nap that we never thought of before - a furry instructive contest!

a-roos to yous,
jack a-roo & moo too

The Island Cats said...

Another great round of entries!!

(We sleep on the stove all the time!)

ABBY said...

A terrific group of competitors!

Whew we don't know how you are going to narrow it down!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Furries are born nappers so it's no wonder there is so much great competition you have to do several posts of pix. They are all so good. It's going to be hard for you to pick a winner.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

OMC, the competition is fierce!

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I like the khat on the burners -

Was that a pre-heat fur ME?


Love Meow said...

awwww you did such a wonderful job putting all the finalists together. Kudos to you! All the entries are so lovely. Good luck with the judging :)

The Army of Four said...

Those just blew me away! I love Bob. Look at those teethies showing! It's so... brilliant!
My collar is off to all the competitors! Well DONE!
Tail wags,

Biloxi and Siber-sibs said...

Was Devon trying to stay warm? We do like Bob's style. Furry ???? Can't find da woofs to describe it.

Husky kisses,

Twinkietinydog said...

Oh, I get it. First I have to come screaming in here and then...Twinkie and her family. BOL I can't help myself, Huffle. I get competitive during competitions. I must say though, the cats are truly incredible (no, I don't mean my cats). I have already picked a winner (hint: yesterday) unless somebody beats that photo.

Glogirly and Katie said...

Hey Huffle!
What an awesome competition! So much cat napping talent out there... how will the judges ever decide on the medalists!

Thank you soooo much for visiting my blog during the Cat-O-Lympics! It was a great week for sure. I've already started training for the next games... Power Napping!

(Glogirly's Olympian Cat)

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

Honestly, no idea how you'll choose. Maybe you should just run away with me to Pussycat Island to avoid having to pick.


Holly and Khady said...

Even MORE excellent sleepy poses! Competition is extremely fierce for sure!!

I really liked the Reese picture. That was a Hoot! But out of the cats I think I liked Noll the best. He looked like an Angel asleep. So darn sweet.

Batu said...

Devon on that stove - priceless!

meowmeowmans said...

We don't envy the judges ... the level of talent from all the entries is staggering!

TK said...

I see this a very popular event! Poor Huffle got hims work cut out fur him. I suggest he just say everyone win and go takes a nap!

Fin said...

I hope your are getting in lots of naps too Huffle. Did I say thanks enough yet, cause I'm really thankful!!

Sweet Praline said...

I think this must be one of the toughest competitions! I can't wait to see who the winners are.

Lorenza said...

Reese is one of a kind!
Good luck to all of them!
Kisses and hugs

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Huffle,
That's another GReat batch of finalists. Are there any cats anywhere in the world that are awake? It sure seems like they're all takinga snooze.

Sammy said...

Cool! Everyone looks great! Do we all get an award or just the finalists? Just wondering.

Sammy said...

I mean, the "winners" you just recently posted...

Sammy said...

Is it just them or all finalists?
