“This is Peter, aka The Orange Gentleman, aka Kitteh. He is the coolest cat in PoPville because he enjoys lounging around his Capitol Hill apartment in a bowtie while judging his owners.”
“This is the Duchess of Destruction: Proof that girls can be so very ornery and still give you that innocent and cute “who me” look before they mess your stuff up bad. Dutch the Australian Kelpie”
“Cooper livin’ it up at the beach!”
Ed. Note: The cats are not competing against the dogs. There will be 5 dog, cat and “other” finalists that will each compete in their own category. We’ll have a poll in each category to select the winner. Using the comments section for these posts will help me select the 5 finalists for each category. I’ve gotten some amazing entries, and a lot of them! So I’ll need your help selecting the finalists. Maybe at the very end we’ll put the three winners in each category up for an overall winner.
The deadline for entries is August. 1st. Remember, please only send one photo per pet. You can see all the entries here. Due to the large number of entries (over 100) I have to put more than 3 up a day. Please see after the jump for three more entries.
“We’d like to submit Oreo as the Coolest Pet in PoPville Contest. We live in the 900 Block of Emerson Street NW and while Oreo is an indoor kitty, everyone in the neighborhood knows him from looking out of the front glass storm door or sitting on the deck of the fenced in back yard “surveying his domain.” He has truly never met a stranger. We adopted him from a last chance animal shelter in West Virginia where he was about to be put to sleep. His owners gave him up because they had a baby and it was allergic. We couldn’t imagine why they would put him in a shelter as he LOVES people and is the smartest little critter we have ever met. He has established that PoPville is his home domain now and we would be proud to call him mascot for the area.”
“I don’t think that there are categories for couples or cutest dogs, but if there are these pups should do well. This is Samantha (L) and Sampson (R) passed out on the backseat on the way home from a VT road trip. I couldn’t pass on snapping this pic.”
