Competitive Napping Finalists 6

Welcome everyone to the final day of competition at the Cat Olympics Competitive Napping event! It's been a massive week and we'll be winding up today with some great competitors. Let's get started.

First up are the Beaded Tail girls. Isabella has pulled out the floofy belly pose, always a favourite with the judges.

And here's Angel, making herself completely at home in the bed.

From Milo and Alfie's family, Gorjuss Ginger Gizmo is competing with an excellent entry. Note he is ON the bed and UNDER the blankets. Good work Gizzy!

Up next are the competitors from the Bumpass Hounds and Kitties family. There are lots of them, so let's get started.

Jenny on Logbook

Boru (bonus points for showing one of our favourites, Maxdog in South Africa?):

Alex P Kitten, extra points for ignoring the furry butt in his way:
Al & Jubal's butt

Sophie (multiple nappers entry):

Shiloh (size of a small horse, bonus points for being as flat as possible):
BH Shiloh sleeping

Shelby Belle:

Radar (blind as a bat, no tail, napping like a champion):

Max, determined to nap even without any creature comforts:

BH Jubal 5

JEB, with a surprise appearance by Boru:

Jack, doing an excellent job of getting in the way in the kitchen:

Homer J, trying to nap with a sock AND a t-shirt on, oh the indignity!

Abby, also getting in the way in the kitchen. Good work Abby!

And finally a posthumous entry from Chance, letting it all hang out as he naps with his mum:

Here's our Romanian competitors, Chicco, Pusi and Tudor.

This photo of Chicco sleeping in his favourite box totally makes me laugh:

Here's Pusi in his CTRL+SHIFT+SLEEP position:

And Tudor, in synchronized sleep with his orange girlfriend:

Our final competitors come from the fine state of Merryland. It's Queen Meeshka and the gimpy gang, showing everydog and cat how multiple napping is done.

We'll call this one "total couch domination". A fine effort:

Here we have the Human Woman NOT getting in the way of a good nap. She makes for a nice pillow, so Meeshka tells me:

Possibly the most dramatic display of the three point sprawl we've seen so far:

And last but certainly not least, napping within a confined space. Yes there's more bed, but the doona only covers part of it so that's the part that must be napped within.

And with that, the competition is now closed! We've had a massive number of entries from the cat and dog blogosphere, and every single one has shown great napping ability.

Please come back tomorrow to vote in the People's Choice Awards, and then our medal ceremonies will be held on Saturday and Sunday.

Finally, if you thought you had entered the Competitive Napping event but didn't see your entry over the past six days, email me right now and I'll fix that right up.

hey Huffle Mawson,

I am so exhausted I am panting! What a week! You have an amazing group of competitors and I just don't know how you will ever pick the winners. Good luck to you! And good luck to all the super competitors! You are all winners to me!

Now, I have some new napping positions to try out.


Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Gorjuss Ginger Gizzy is very excited! We'll be back to vote!

Cats in Trees said...

Somehow we think you might be hosting an event like the Cat Swimming Competition the next Olympics.

Elin said...

Seems like the competition is tough!

The Creek Cats said...

Those are wonderful! Just look at all those great entries!

She hand-makes the collars with Swarovski pretty-ness, and i really just love them. my mommeh and i check her site regularly for new sparklies, because she is always making different things.

Kea said...

We've loved all the entries! We'll never be able to vote, though--too many fabulous ones from which to choose!

The Kitty Krew said...

Wow, all those entries to choose from! What an impossible decision - we're glad not to be the judges for this one!

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

The Florida Furkids said...

Amazing entries!!! We don't know how you are going to choose the winners.

Hey Huffle and Tracy,
WOW! What a competition. Our dad says that he bets you guys were really surprised by the number of entrants in the competitive napping competition. Around here both mom and dad are ALWAYS encouraging us to practice our napping techniques. "GO LIE DOWN" is perhaps the second most used command that we hear; following second to the only more frequently used "KNOCK IT OFF." We really want to thank you both for undertaking this massive effort. We're sure that the Cat-O-Lympics contestants and fans feel the same way. Good on y'all.

Marg said...

Those are some mighty good entries. I just don't see how anyone can pick a winner. They are all pretty close to perfect. What a great bunch of pictures and nappers. And it is so much fun to practice on the napping.

Cory said...

I've never seen such incredible talent in one spot before! The competition is fierce!!!

I think I'll take a nap now.

Remington said...

What GREAT pics!

Stella said...

Count me among those amazed at the size of this competition. This could be as big as MangoMinster!

Congrats, Huffle, it will be great fun to see the winner(s)!


Esme said...

How can you choose just one-they are all so adorable. You want to scratch all those bellies.

Dog Foster Mom said...

Another round of great entries. And your comments on each one are great. Thank you for spending the time it took to post them all and share commentary on each one - awesome job!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Whew, that must have been so exhausting for you and your Mum to post all these napping kitties and pups. We can't wait to see the winners.

And we are really hoping to see Huffle soon too.

Woos, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Amy & the house of cats said...

Oh my gosh there were so many entries! We can't guess how the judges will decide - it is going to be so difficult for them!

The Island Cats said...

Wow, Huffle!! There are so many entries!! All great!! Goes to show us kitties and woofies do napping the best!

BeadedTail said...

Thanks for posting our entries but as much as kitties seem to dominate the competitive napping category, those woofies today sure have some pawsome napping skills themselves! What a close competition!

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

What a bunch of cuties!!

Boru could be my twin!

Purrs Goldie

The Army of Four said...

Wow! Is Jenny a watch cat? Ha roo roo roo! Dave likes the one of Jubal best - because he seems to be sleeping on the biped's foot. Dave's into that sort of thing!
Another awesome collection of napping pros!!!
Play bows,

Love Meow said...

Cats of Wildcat Woods said...

Wow - great napping line up! Good luck choosing the winners.

Unknown said...

The anticipation is killing me! Finally, the last set of contestants, but they were all very talented. Ugh...I won't nap again until this is over--I find that appropriate.
