Rusty

We have had a lot of fun in the Cat-o-lympics. Each event was hosted by a different furry blogger and the different ways they were held and/or judged was interesting. All of our categories have now been closed and the awards ceremony held -- except for Cameron's Wake-up competition. We hope to hear something on that soon. Tuck's secretary must be sick or busy.

Yesterday, One Cats Nip handed out their awards for the Mile Long Kleen category. Our Rusty didn't win a medal but he did get a Participating Award. It even has his photo on it. And since Rusty is camera shy and his entry was of his back, we think it neat OCN went the extra blog post to find a photo of Rusty to use. Thank you, One Cats Nip. Stop by there to check out both participants and medal winners and send them congratulations on a job well done.




This was Rusty's entry. Now we know that other participants didn't post their original entry photos again but there are so many of us that we want to be sure you know which of us participated. And we want you to be able to tell us apart, so we need to keep posting our photos until you know which of us is which. And then you'll be one up on Jan because she often forgets or confuses our names. We really enjoy her bad memory when one of us is in trouble and her mind goes blank.

A very thorough Rusty finishes his bath.

Don't worry, Rusty, we know how much work it takes for you to groom your fur to look your best so you can close your eyes when Jan snaps your picture. We'd gladly give you a Rusty-Outwitted-Jan's-Camera again award!

Oh, and notice who is in the photo with Rusty. A certain JFF furry actually loves the camera and tries his best to get in every shot. However, he has eyes that are almost always red in photos and even Photoshop Elements throws up its hands when Jan clicks on "fix red eye." We're beginning to think Sam is a secret tippler and alcohol goes to his eyes instead of his nose.

  1. Congratulations Rusty!

    Well our Mom gets youngest boy bean and Fenris confused, we don't think they look anything alike. ~AFSS

    PS: We are not sure who was more insulted youngest boy bean or Fenris. They are both put out with Mommy.

    Our mom uses both PhotoShop Elements and Picasa for red eye, but sometimes it's hopeless. LOL.

  16. Hey Rusty Bud!! Great job...sorry you didn't win..someone MUST have gave the judges had too much nip before they saw your picture...no? Well, I think you shoulda won...I would have voted for you. You got a fabulous mane there and that must take a while to clean and I bet you have to do some SERIOUS stretching, too...maybe next time you'll get the gold!!

  20. Congratulations Rusty. At least your Mom entered you. Our Mom is a procrastinating Mom. Never did get any of us entered.

    Talk about getting your names confused.......Mom takes roll call until she gets it right, and that is most of the time. We are getting used to it.

  24. Hey Rusty,
    I thought you did a most excellent job, even if you didn't win. The competition must have been really tough.
    Just keep in practice for the next Olympics.

    Purrs,
