Kitteh contest: Ulysses Everett McGill

March 30, 2011 • 9:22 am

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.

Here are Everett and his companion (Fat) Jack:

  1. I love the “stuff on my cat” pic. And Jack’s not fat, he’s just big boned.

    Congrats to Everett and Catilin!

  2. That crown is made of 100% pure, unadulterated Awesome! Everett clearly takes his regal responsibilities most seriously.

    Congratulations!

    Cheers,

  3. i think i read that submissions were closed somewhere on the site, correct me if i’m wrong, por favor. but, can you still submit kitteh picturez? i care little about contests but would love to share my cat’s mug.

    1. Yes, by all means. But you have to submit a good 250-word story, too, as if you were entering the contest. And there are no promises that every kitteh submitted from now on will be posted. I do my best . . .

    1. “Stoically self-righteous disposition”…

      I took that look to be saying, “You get 10 seconds for this, human…9…8….7….6…”

      And second that “Awwwwww….” for the second picture. Cho kawaii:-))

  4. Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I have filled Everett in and he has deigned to blink at me in response. That’s a win.

    Also, Jack stole some lamb out off of the kitchen counter this evening, so his diet must be working. (That is, he can get onto the counter.)
