Today will be largely a photo day, and here are some good ones from the Awesome Kitteh Contest. Reader Catilin entered her imposingly named cat:
Ulysses Everett McGill is very long and sleek with bunny fur and coloration like a Goetze’s caramel cream bulls-eye. You would think his natural beauty would be enough for him, but his habits are decadent and he loves to get fancy. In this photo Everett is all decked out in an exquisite boa crafted from the finest, hand-selected pot-holder craft kit cotton loops, curling ribbon from freshly unwrapped birthday presents, and a metallic catnip-stuffed sturgeon toy. Though his disposition is best summed up as “stoically self-righteous,” he has a generous spirit. Every day he leaves 1/4 of his dinner for his kitteh companion (Fat) Jack to eat, which has led to Jack being put on a diet by the vet. In his waking hours, Everett enjoys watching my mother blow-dry her hair, eating and regurgitating Plestiodon inexpectatus [JAC: the southeastern five-lined skink] alternately stomping and creeping up and down the stairs, and judging everyone with his judging eyes.
