  1. No wonder there is disagreement among the judges. This is a hard one!

  2. We can see how choosing a winner would be so difficult. The finalists are awesome!

  3. Oh my gosh I’m glad I was not a judge…the finalist are amazing. Good luck
    you may need a referee to keep the judges in line. HA!!!

  4. Those finalists are all amazing. It’s going to be very tough to choose from those. Maybe there should be an additional rule: no scratching or biting during the judging.

  5. We are sorry to see the judging brought such discontent among the judges…though they were probably having fun! MOL

    Roxy and angel Callie are honored to be among the finalists, and we understand the Island Cat guy will have a tough time choosing who to award the medals too, all the entries are fabulous! We’re just happy to be here and in contention. 🙂

    Purrs and hugs,
    Roxy and the rest of The Kitty Krew

  29. hi you guys! thank you for coming by to say hello at my brand new bloggie. i love your entries here, and will be keeping up! come back to see me soon.

  30. Such excitement! We’re all on pins and needles here. So many excellent synchronized snoozing contestants. We’re kind of excited since our Buddy and Sam are the only woofies among the finalists. We wish all the contestants good luck.

  31. WOW, but I kind of expected that, all the contestants were just pawsome!!!

  32. Those really are some great entries and we can see why you are having so much trouble. They are all perfect synchronized snoozers. We think they should all win. Have a great day.

  33. The competition was fierce! They all deserve to win!! Now I feel like a nap…

  34. WOW!!! That is some fierce competition! I’m sure glad I don’t have to judge this one! As for participating, I’m really more of a solo cat. I excel at the individual sports. I suppose though I could work on some synchronized napping with Glogirly. She likes naps too.

    Thank you so much for coming by to visit my blog during the CAT-O-LYMPICS! It was a super fun week!

  36. Look at all that synchroncity! What a tough competition!

  37. Woah, there is no way we could pick!

  38. I congratulate you on evne being able to narrow it down to 12 that must have been hard!

  39. oh my Bast. No wonder there was a deadlock. Those are some pawsome choices! I’m really glad I”m not a judge. I’d never make a decision!

  40. Wow, 39 entries from which to choose? No wonder you can’t come to a decision–even after narrowing to 12. Of course, that bit of fighting going (fun-ny)on isn’t exactly helping your images, you judges, you! 🙂

  41. Pretty impressive snoozing!

  42. Well, no wonder there’s a deadlock (and fighting to boot)! These are fabulous!

  43. Those are all amazing! We can’t imagine how you will choose the winners!

  44. We’ve got our paws crossed for our faves! Hurry up Mr. Island Cat Guy!

  45. Congrats to all the finalists.

  46. Those pics are so great, no wonder the judges are fighting it out!

  47. Good Golly!! This is a hard one!! We will be back to see who won!!
    Your TX furiends,

  48. They all look like winners to us!!

  49. There are so many fantastic entries!

  50. I know how you feel. I am having the same trouble with the Competitive Napping. Too many great entries!

  51. We are a bit sad our synchronized snoozing didn’t make the grade but we do wish the fabulous entries above good luck! They are pawesome!

  52. We are excited to be among the 12 finalists and admire you for actually coming up with 3 winners out of 39 competitors! Judging this would be very difficult and other events awarded gold medals to all who participated rather than trying to choose just 3 winners, so you are to be congratulated for your diligence and hard work!

  53. We just loved this post! Made us laugh out loud! Congratulations to all the finalists and winners!
