Competitive Napping Event Day 2

I hope you're all ready for another round of some excellent napping.  I'm really glad that someone else is doing the judging; there's no way I can choose between you all!

First up today are Shiloh and Shasta.  Is there anything cuter than a pile of sleepy beagles?

This is the beautiful Sei-Chan, showing off those pink toes. Teddy is very obsessed with toes and is quite overcome by this picture.

Scylla, I can here all the parents squeeing from here! Look at that belleh!

Next up is Sarge, accessorising with a toy and a jaunty scarf. So stylish!

This is Sammy. My mum was ready to give him the gold medal when this picture arrived! Lucky she's not judging, that's all I can say.

This is Roo. I'm pretty sure I don't need to add any commentary here.

This is Reuben. Has anyone else ever bitten their tongue in their sleep? Or is that just my mum.

I always love a good bit of sitting-up-sleeping, as demonstrated by Rama here. By the way, even though Rama looks like Mango Man, Rama is actually a cane corso (pronounced kah-nay korso). So handsome!

This is EK, blissed out in the sun. Heavenly.

Look at Peter, from Purrchance to Dream. My mum is a sucker for those curled paws.

Obviously watching TV proved too much for Pasha. But look at the belleh floof!

Next up we have Oskar. I think that might be Moe in the background if you look carefully too. Oskar loves a mound of quilts like nothing else.

This is Only, from the Wild Cat Woods clan. I'm pretty sure that sitting up AND having crossed paws while sleeping scores very highly.

This is Mr Darcy. I'm speechless.

This is Mr Bingley. Can you tell he and Mr Darcy are related?

Well, that's it for day two of competition. We have three more days of excellent competitors to come! See you tomorrow.

Competitive Napping Event Day 1

Let's Get Ready to Rumble!  Um... quietly.  That's right, it's competitive napping time!

This is how it's going to work.  Today, and over the following four days, I am going to post all the entries for competitive napping.  They will be posted in reverse alphabetical order, so if you had more than one entry from your family, they may not necessarily appear together. 

Then NEXT Monday, the medal ceremonies will be held.  HuffleDad and my bestest friend Zimmie's mum will be the impartial judges.

First up, we have Zoey from Zoolatry.  Does anyone see anything wrong with this picture?

Next up is Zoey (and Harley) from ZeeZoey:
Zoey and Harley
Those crossed back paws give Zoey a certain edge, don't you think?

Our next competitor is Winston. If this isn't napping of the finest order, I don't know what is. Winston

Next up is tortie girl Willow. Boy does she know how to nap in style!

Here are Whisky and Ling, they're not synchronised but they're napping alright!

Next up, Weenie and Mona, the Texas dachsies. That is some serious napping going on right there.

What I'd like to know is, how does Tucker the great dane manage to make such a small nap pile?  Where are the legs?

This is Treasure. I didn't know windows could be used as a prop for sleeping!

Next up, a stylish French competitor - Tommy from the Chans. Sleeping with a prop is very clever, Tommy!

Now, this is Reuben's cousin Tater Tot. This is one of the most impressive sleeping positions I've seen in a long time. (if you don't know Reuben, his entry is coming up in the next day or two)

This is Sweet.  It's a bit hard to fault her name, isn't it?  Look at those paws!

This is Star from the Celestial Kitties. I'm pretty sure her back end is higher than her head. How does she not get a head rush??

This is Socks. Helping the human with their work, no doubt. Good job, socks!

This is Sneaky Pie from the Kwee Cats. Look at that head tilt!

Jasper submitted this picture of behalf of Smokey, who doesn't have a blog. Just as well, because look at that napping form!

That's it for day one of competition, folks! Tune in tomorrow for the next round!

I am feeling very Olympic today

Today I thought I'd show you our entries in the Olympic events.

I am entering the Balance Beam over at Cory's place:

And so is Teddy:

And Teddy is in the Hiding competition at Quill's:

Teddy is also in Fierceful Yawning at Kashim's blog, and I am in the secret Strong Cat competition at Quill's. You'll have to wait til the events start to see those photos.

Words Fail Me on Wednesday

Teddy 189

Honestly. Does anyone know what he's doing here?

Miraculous Monday

This is me and Teddy in the same photo! It hardly ever happens. I was sunning myself on the driveway near the neighbour's car and he came out to annoy me.

Mancat Monday

See how manly I am in my mancatly pose on the not-quite-finished deck?

Teddy 178

Mum keeps telling me to get my floof in order but I just don't know what she's talking about.

Are you ready for the Olympics? There are less than two weeks to go now!

Huffle says we got a message from her web host saying the mailbox was nearly full so if you submitted a picture and didn't get a reply from her please try again. Also, if you wanted to enter but missed the deadline you can have until this Wednesday (July 18) to get your entries in.

Monday Movie Madness

I started out trying to attack the bathmat. I do not like that bathmat and I attack it every single day. I think I'm slowly beating it into submission.

Anyhow, I suddenly realised that my tail, known as Something Like Bob, was being naughty! So I had to try and teach Something Like Bob a lesson.

By the way, does anyone know what that tall white thing is?

Monday Deck Update

This is me sitting on the new deck.  It is not finished.  We don't even have a back fence at the moment - that's the neighbour's house you can see behind me - so I am not allowed out the back unless mum or dad are with me.

Huffle 207

One day, when the deck is finished and our back fence is up, I will be able to spend my days out here snoozing in the sun.


Don't forget to send me your entries for Competitive Snoozing!
