Upstaged by a CAT!!!

Ok I'm slightly humiliated.. actually VERY humiliated. I have been totally upstaged by.. of all things.. a CAT

a giant ginger furball!

Jasper belongs to my Grandma, now i kind of like him (in the sense I drool when i see him and lick my lips a lot) but ultimatley I KNOW that I am better than him.. this is fact. But the ginger furball has got one over on me!!

The local paper ran a competition called I LOVE MY PET. Owners submitted pictures of their pets and readers voted for their favourite. Categories were:
Best Dog
Best Cat
Best Other (any other animal/critter)
Best Overall Pet

and the ginger furball only went and won the Best Cat category!!

and worse still... Mum voted for him!

and even worse Mum didn't even enter me so I wasn't even able to show the ginger whinger that I would have blown his socks off in the best overall pet category!!.. my only consolation here is that he was beaten in that category by a Lizard!! Oh how i laughed!

Mum has some major sucking up to do.. and i MEAN major!

The feline furball is gloating like crazy GRRRRR

and now he gets to have a professional photo shoot.. and be treated like royalty! Mum will probably get one of the shots and hang it on the wall.. just to rub salt in my already VERY deep wounds!

Judge for yourself.. is this floof monster more handsome than me??

He IS handsome - but by no means as handsome as you. If your mum would have entered you, you would have won first place, no doubt about that!

Chef said...

No way! You are by far much more handsome than that silly little cat. If your Mama enters you next time, you will win for sure.

Ben, Thanks for stopping by and visiting. We came by and Wow! what news! Your Mum didn't even enter you? I can't wait to hear what she does to make it up to you!! Nice to virtually meet you! -Rocky and Mati

Lorenza said...

Nope! He is not handsome than you!
You need a plan to enter that contest next time!
Kisses and hugs

Ben, he's a cat. Of course he's not more handsome than you. By the way, hello, I'm visiting from Melbourne Australia and couldn't resist dropping in on a gorgeous rottie like yourself. I had a rottie (Maxine) who crossed the bridge nearly 3 years ago now and I can't bear the thought of trying to replace her. Reading about your antics on a regular basis will do! Trace

No. Of course not. Myself I think he looks slightly on the chubby side and could do to lose weight by being chased a lot.

Anyway when we make my film there will be lots of marmalade cats to chase on the ship. I have pencilled you in for the role of love rival.

Hi Ben
Your kitty kat mate is a good looker but heck, you didn't have a chance coz your mum didn't enter you. You're in for major treats and delicious food for sometime now from your mum. I think it is funny the lizard won.
Thank you very much for joining Stormy's mission to bring my brother, Beau home in 2008. This means so much to me and my mum and my family.
Love from Hammer

GRRRRRR! Carmelita and I are OUTRAGED about this!! I think you should ban your Mum from singing to you for at least a couple of days, and no embarrassing names in public for a few days too!! That will show her! xxx

I have to tell you that the floofy ginger cat is really beautiful. Why didn't your mum enter you in the contest? I am sure you would have hidden you very large teeth and would have won too!

Ben, I guess he is good looking....if you like cats that is! I'm not much of a kitty fan, so definitely you are much more handsome in your household. He looks like he would be a good chasing buddy to run after...what do you think?

Hugs,
CoCo

Ginger furball looks mad at the world in that photo. I wouldn't have voted for him. You are far more handsome.

FleasGang said...

that's just despicable. Good thing she's groveling now with treats. That will teach her :-)

Didn't even enter you? What is up with that? You have your own blog! What does that cat have? A profesional photo. woohoo From what I've seen of Mom taking pictures of my cat brother, the pictures won't be that great because cats hate their pictures taken.
I guess since he is family, you should be happy for him - but you're still way cooler!
