No, that is specifically excluded! Unless you throw some real cats and dogs in.

I'm sure I will be able to get a shot of Vomit the Cat at some point this week. The useless thing is either asleep, licking it's bum or throwing up, and rarely moves with any alacrity. Easy target . .

Why is it that each time a new topic is announced I have the perfect picture - that was taken last week. I'm off to Churchill so I night find a husky or two

Our stupid stupid cat, a dimwit even among his particularly moronic species, has run into a bush and now has an infected wound on his face. He is, therefore, for the foreseeable future, not even able to be considered "cute". Useless piece of  . . .

Well my stupid cat wouldn`t sit on next door`s low roof in my limited time to shoot so this is a composite of the roof, cat on the fence and moon shot messily put together in a rush. I`ll see if I can get a better one before the week is out.

Well, if you set fire to the roof you could call it 'Cat on a hot tin roof.  :P

my my, I sense a little anti-feline sentiment here... I do like your 'cat on the roof' picture, but you will not get my vote if you call the cat 'stupid'.

I'll have you know I love my cat dearly. That said he is pretty stupid if not on this occasion for not getting on the roof.

Have had a great day today. Got a chance to go out with a fellow who races the sled dogs in North Canada (ie in Winter). He's currently training a pack of dogs for a 200 km race next week. Spent the morning photographing his dogs. Here are a couple of pics.






And this is the one I'll put in competition this week...
