It's time to choose

Well, I hope you've all been really impressed with the standard of entries into Competitive Napping at the Cat-O-Lympics. I know I have, and I am having all sorts of trouble choosing the medallists.

Meanwhile, everycat and everydog who entered gets this badge:

Participation Badge

And now it's time for you all to choose your favourite. I was going to do a poll but blogger couldn't cope with so many names so I need you all to leave a comment and tell me the name of your favourite competitor today. I'll be awarding medals tomorrow, and then reveal the winner of the People's Choice award on Sunday.

We just dropped by on our way over to Olive's place. It is really rockin' and rollin' over there. Her momma sure knows how to make the place swing!

One Cats Nip said...

uh oh a not anonymous vote, the suspense will kill us all.

Stella said...

We are voting for the following:

Jo for Paddy from Cats in Trees

Stella for Ali Z on stairs

Good luck, Huffle!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We can't help. We thought they were all terrific. So many different performances. Our Percy had the relaxed snooze in big brother's personal chair style. But who was the best? We'll be looking forward to finding out. Good luck to all the entries!

Morgan in Pittsburgh said...

Mom looked at them all again, and that cat sleeping in the tree is the one that stands out in her mind every time. We're voting for the cat in the tree. Paddy. we have cats, and we have seen them do some crazy stuff, but we never saw them do nothin' like that!
your pals, M&M

Misha said...

Don't make me chooooose! Nooooooooooo!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

They are all brilliant ~ BUT we are voting for Paddy from Cats in Trees!

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

BABY PRALINE!!! *swoon*

Kea said...

We just can't decide, because there were SO many fabulous entries and everyone is #1 in our books. :-)

P.S. The participant medal is terrific!

Suka said...

hey Huffle Mawson,

You really do have your work cut out for you. Will you be pulling an all nighter? Make sure your mum has plenty of ham to help you get through the ordeal of picking winners from this amazing, incredible bunch of competitors!

As extremely difficult as it was, I did pick three that really stuck out for me:

Paddy in the tree, Tuna hanging off the bed, and Reese sitting sleeping.

To be honest, all the cats and dogs were just spectacular and I learned a lot about napping positions. Good luck to all! You are all winners!

Olivia si Tudor said...

I agree that no one can compete with a cat that sleeps in a tree... :)The blog is one of the most beautiful.
I also like Chance sleeping with his mum and letting it all hang out. :)
And I'm very impressed by Bob, Flynn, Wally from the Island cats, Allie, Sakura, Tuna, Derry, Ariel, Miss Moo...

Forever Foster said...

Can we have a vote each? Because it is too hard otherwise.

Fui votes for Derry in the wired up pot.

Suey votes for Inigo Flufflebum and his flagrant exhibitionism.

Ronny votes for Wally and his awesome stretching.

That was unfair, Huffle! Our heads nearly exploded.

Biloxi and Siber-sibs said...

It's jest so hard to choose!!! But I want to nom-e-nate Miss Moo! We like her style.

Husky kisses,
Biloxi

Eric and Flynn said...

Oh yikes! You mean we have to look through all those photos again? We will come back later with our decisions.

Batu said...

It has to be Chicco in the favourite box - so uncomfortable-looking and yet strangely not???

Amy Lynn said...

I've got to give my vote to Dixie and Cujo. :)

Remington said...

All are winners -- there I picked!

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Huffle,
We also liked all the contestants but the 13 of us vote individually, and as a group, for Chance sleeping with his mom. He loved her a lot and she loved him.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Well, we (Barney and Virgil) are biased, because both Danielle and Gracie are entered so we pick them - we can't decide between them though, so we are each voting individually. So we pick both (Barney picks Gracie, and Virgil picks Danielle). Kirzon and Lola can't decide because it is just too tough, so they decided that everyone is deserving!

The Crew said...

Oh Huffle...this is an almost impossible task. All the entries are great!!

But, after much consideration, we're voting for Reese the dog and Chicco the cat.

SuziQCat said...

I may be biased, but I think Devon on the stove is the best. :)

CatLadyDiary.com said...

Oh this is hard...I vote
Here's Pusi in his CTRL+SHIFT+SLEEP position
because (S)he has the look of "I really love my human" on her/his face.

Cyber-sibes said...

Toooooo many to choose frm, Huffle! You're going to need a week off just to nap & have some ham & relax after this!

I choose Jack, I just love his head-on-the-steps napping pawsition. Really!
~Moo

Ha-roo, its a pretty easy decision - as a proud member of HULA and devout servant of the Queen, my vote is for Meeshka & her pack.
~Jack a-roo

(but since its Cat-o-lympics, if we were to vote fur a cat, it would have to be fur Paddy - what better place to nap & lie in wait to catch a squirrel than up in a tree? Paddy is my kind of cat!)

Simba said...

I have to vote for Audrey since she's my cousin, and I think she has the most beautiful way of napping and she enjoys her naps more than any other kitty could.

Ande scond, if I can, I would vote for Inigo of Rumblebum.

The Island Cats said...

We think they are all great!! We're a little partial to Wally just because he sleeps in the weirdest positions all the time! But...we really think Paddy sleeping in the tree has to be the most unusual place we've seen a kitty sleep, so we'll vote for Paddy!

Sammy and Andy said...

We viewed them and they all deserve a gold.....we believe each is the best in his/her own way.

Love Meow said...

They are all so good. :) We are happy for whoever wins in this competition! Good luck kitties and doggies!

BeadedTail said...

That's a tough choice! We think everyone is a winner!

The Army of Four said...

Oh, rats, Huffs! (Sorry, Roger; not you!) We can't choose! Storm, Zim and Dave want to vote for me, but I don't think that's right... and I can't decide! Everycat and everypup are soooo good at what they do!
Play bows,
Zim
PS: That participation medal is really cool! Thanks!

Twinkietinydog said...

Fine, if I don't get to win today, I get to vote. My action on FLYNN p-lease. A nickel, for the gambling savvy. My bookie won't let me wager more.
Twink!
PS: I just looked at your comment. BOL you're going to have your paws full, Huffle. Good luck to YOU.

TK said...

I has to say Paddy in the tree is the bestest to us. Mommy been making everyones go look at it.
ALl the rests are way too kyoots to decide on one.
Maybe you should just draw the rests out of a hats!
You has a grate event Huffle.
TK

Cats in Trees said...

So many to choose from, it's really difficult. But we want to help, so we choose for Tygana, Virgil and Snafu.

Eric and Flynn said...

I wanted to vote for my brother Flynn but he says we shouldn't vote for each other, so we both vote for Paddy in the tree.
Eric

Furkidsmom said...

We had a hard time too but we agree with the others - Paddy in the tree is gold medal worthy!!

Morgan in Pittsburgh said...

me again - mom says I have to vote for my sister Maisie for second..now I get a cookie!
your pal, Morgan

Mr Koda MD said...

Gosh Huffle, you have a hard job ahead of you, there are soo many to pick from!!!!!!!!!

Koda

The OP Pack said...

We can't choose one, two, or three - they were all so good. sorry:(

Woos, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

meowmeowmans said...

We love them all, but if we can help by choosing, we'll vote for Gracie, Percy and Bob

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

This is hard, but I'm going to vote for Paddy from Cats in Trees.

Wilbur

Ina in Alaska said...

Too many wonderful entries! I agree with many of the commenters, all are winners... one standout to me is the cat on the stove top. The medals are really cool!!! xoxo
