Competitive Napping Finalists 3

Welcome to the third day of competition everyone! It's been a great event so far but we have a lot more to show you!

First up today we have some UK representatives, Eric and Flynn. They've clearing exhausted themselves by blogging too hard and are now taking well-deserved naps.

This is Batu Khan, a fellow Aussie kitty blogger, entering the "where does the body start and end" category. I think the hint of collar just gives it away...

Up next are Mya and Zack. Their mum says she is too busy to start them a blog; I say that's no excuse!

Zack does not like Monday mornings, as you can see here:
zack's monday mornings

And he has issues with the printer too!
zack - olympic committee

Mya is totally going for the cute vote with those curled paws, and a high degree of difficulty considering it looks like she's asleep on the back of the couch:

And doing her best sphinx impression:

Into the ring comes the entry from I Have Cat. Very nice form, kitties. VERY nice.

Here's one of our French competitors, Sei-Chan from The Pouponette. Gorgeous!

Next up come the kitties from the Casbah Kitten.

Alice? Those back paws? TOO CUTE!

And Jane is going for gold in the "sleeping where I'm not allowed" category:

It's time now for one of the Island competitors, Wally from the Island Cats. Such poise and balance!

Up next is Marcy Stein from Cat Lady Diary. Showing great composure in not rolling over and letting that sun on her belly, I must say.

Stepping up now is one of our honorary kitty kat competitors, Drill Sgt Zim from the Army of Four. He's gone for a high degree of difficulty with napping on the Sitzbank, which is strictly NOT allowed in his house. Way to go, Zim!

Next in the ring is sweet little Paddy all the way from the Netherlands, of Cats in Trees fame. I just don't know how anycat is going to compete with this pose:

Here's our friend Wilbur of the Washington Woos, demonstrating how to sleep in a basket on top of his aunt's wedding invitations - very helpful Wilbur!

And on top of the television. Is that a warm spot? Should I be giving that a go too?

There's some hard core napping there. I'm getting exhausted just watching!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Fabulous entries again.

Kea said...

Fabulous entries, all of them. Our human feels just like Zack about Monday mornings.

Paddy napping in the tree, though....That pose is in a class all by itself!

Suka said...

hey Huffle Mawson,

You kitties sure know how to make napping into an extreme sport! I have never seen such odd, interesting, difficult, bizarre napping positions in my life! I don't envy you picking a winner. What a great group of competitors!

Both Paddy in the tree and Inigo Flufflebum warming her tush are pretty cool pictures, and napping positions!

Good luck to all the amazing competitors!

Gandalf, Grayson, Whitey and Gracie said...

Clearly, Competitive Napping is by far THE most popular event! We just can't imagine how you will narrow this down to just 3 medals, Huffle!

the casbah kitten said...

I think the competition here is even more fierce than in the human Olympics!

Forever Foster said...

How comfy do they look!

Parker said...

Jeez, that's a lot of tough competition!

Eric and Flynn said...

You have a very difficult job. The standard of entries is very high.

Cats in Trees said...

Oh dear, oh dear. So many cats, so many naps. And all naps are like all cats: unique and beautiful. You must feel as if you are judging a staring competion for the blind.

Daisy said...

Some very, very strong entries! It is going to be a close contest for sure!

The Creek Cats said...

Those are all such wonderful entries!!

Amy Lynn said...

Flynn is my winner for the day. :)

Cory said...

I'm rooting for my momma Ellie!!!

Of course this is such tough competition, that next time I think my momma should enter the half-pipe instead.

The Kitty Krew said...

Goodness, there are such great entries, we had no idea the competition would be so tough! We're happy to be included, though we don't think our chances are good with all the other great entries. But it's been fun to participate anyway. :)

Paddy is adorable, and Zack (?) hating Mondays is just too cute.

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Cliff and Olivia said...

TK said...

Huffle you are doing such a grate job at this, i loves your narratives.

I would have to say Paddy gets the gold both for difficulty and style. How can anykitteh compete with THAT?

Very kyoot, all the entries.

The OP Pack said...

Look at Paddy - how cute!!! We think you might have to separate the cats and dogs - those cats have mastered the art of napping - hate to admit it but they have it all over us pups.

Woos, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

AttieCattie said...

The Island Cats said...

Excellent performances by all!

Stella said...

The Cat in the Tree was just excellent, but I have to say Inigo Flufflebum with the tushie warming wins on two levels, a great postion, and body warmth.

Kisses,
Stella

Angus Mhor said...

Zack and Paddy are both A-MAZ-ING! On your face and in a tree..Can you do that, Huffle-Puff? Oh, I know, you can do it in a SHOE! Let's see some cool photos in your mom's Jimmy Choo's!

BeadedTail said...

The napping kitties always make us smile. They also make us want to go nap...

These are great!! Kitties are just the funniest and cutest. Seems like computers are a favorite with most cats :)

OMD I think I've spotted the winner. Wait a minute! Hold it! Huffle, what's going on? I can't pick a winner yet. Where are my entries? I object. I want to be disqualified. Did I say this right? BOL
