If you have a scanner and a cat, you may be in luck. An alert reader sent me a site full of “cat scans,” in which readers simply put their cat on a computer scanner and post the results. Some of the shots (a few are shown below) are great.
I’ll award an autographed HARDBACK edition of WEIT to the reader who sends me the best scan of his/her cat. My collection of hardbacks is very small now, so this will be the last one I offer in a contest. The autograph will include my drawing of the winning cat.
Rules: Contest closes on the last day of August. Send only one scan per cat, please. If there are fewer than ten entries, only a paperback will be awarded. Send scans to my email address, easily obtained by Googling my name and my university.
Flatbed scanners do not, I believe, use lasers, so I doubt that scanning can cause harm. If anybody knows otherwise, please let us know.
What to shoot for (click to enlarge). The first one is definitely a winner!
