Ruby says she’s up to a challenge. A bunny thumper challenge. Big feets!! I explained to her that it’s really not fair comparing Maine Coons to other cats and at least one prize has to be by random selection and one prize should be for dainty feet (Maine Coons are not known for dainty anythings). So here it is:
Post a picture of your cat(s)’s bunny thumper (the rear foot) with a ruler next to it (if your cat will stay still long enough), along with the measurement from longest toe to the end of the heel (like you were measuring your cat for socks) and mention the link in your comment to this post so Ruby can go look. Full grown cats only. (sorry baby kitties) One entry per cat. (so Blogless Kim if you had a blog you’d get X number of entries. Just leave me the measurements in your comment or by email)
1 knitterly prize for the longest foot.
1 knitterly prize for the daintiest (shortest) foot.
1 knitterly prize by random selection of all entrants.
Contest closes midnight January 17.
(Ruby also thinks we need to have a contest for widest cat butt but I nixed that plan.)
Fire Fighter Girl thinks she would be taking her life in her hands if she tries to measure and photographer Mimi’s bunny thumper. In cases such as this, try to include a photo w/o ruler, and publish the thumper length in your comment. Maybe taking the measurement while the little one naps.
