Wet Cat Contest

I like contests - have you noticed? So I've decided to bribe you to play along. Did I say bribe? I meant entice. But I couldn't think of anything that I could offer that you would really want. Some bloggers have contests and give away gift cards worth hundreds of dollars. I don't have hundreds of dollars. And I didn't figure a little $10 gift card would be much of an enticement. Plus I'd feel guilty giving away money solely to find people to play silly little games with me. Still, I wanted to come up with something (I really like contests). So here's what I came up with - whomever wins the contest will get a $10 donation made in their name to the charity of their choice. Now $10 may not be a lot of money to you, but I think all charities, even the huge national charities, appreciate any small donation, because it all adds up to help their cause. The only rule is the charity must be a 501(c)3 charity. It can be an animal rescue group like Heartland Humane Society, or a children's charity like Compassion Int'l, or a group like the American Cancer Society or JDRF. It's totally your choice, if you win. So here's how to play!

This first ever official Dog Foster Mom contest will be about cats - wet cats, to be exact. Here is a picture I took of a cat named Athena right after she had a bath. She looks happy, don't you think?

So your job, should you choose to accept it, is to find a funny picture of a wet cat. I'm not suggesting you go give your cat a bath - surprisingly there are not many catz like Athena who really like to get wet. But I'm sure there are many pictures of wet cats out there on the great big world-wide web, and if you want to play this game, you just need to go find them. Then leave a comment on this post with a link to the picture you like best. One entry per person please. The contest will end on Tuesday the 18th at 1:00pm CST. At that time, I will pick one entry that makes me laugh, and that person will be declared the winner. I hope you enjoy the idea, and have fun!

Okay, here's my candidate... This poor kitty looks like he's about to be tortured by something medieval. Hysterical!

Or... maybe he's just reacting to the horrid wallpaper in the background. :)
