    Ok. Off to go vote…

  42. Miriam says:

  47. oaklandcat says:

    I have a kitteh named Otto! Yay for Ottos!

  48. Noelegy says:

    The name so nice you can like it forward and backward!

  49. Wow! I wonder how many takes it took to get that photo! Well, now that I think about it, cameras have really evolved since I’ve used them, so it probably wasn’t as hard as I’m making it out to be with shutter-shots or something like that, right?

    Nonetheless — I hope you win the competition!

    With Love and Gratitude,

    “A hospital? What is it?”

    “It’s a big building with sick people in it. But that’s not important now ….”

    So many [technically] lame jokes BUT SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!

  51. bookmonstercats says:

    I stoated for Otto. Any pup worthy of “Airplane” HT and comments is worth my vote.

    Surely, Shirley.

  52. Roger, Roger !

  54. Rachael says:

    I stoated as well. And don’t call me Shirley!

  55. Fird Birfle says:

  57. Gail White says:

    Looks like Otto and Hoverball Cat should swear eternal friendship.

  58. Can hover-cat meet hover-dog? Please! Please! Please!

  59. “Bolt” ??? hehehe

  60. “Look Mom I’m flying”!

  61. Now maybe it’s because I have a hankering to watch Black Swan again, but I see picture #1 and want to exclaim “I’m the Swan Queen!” in a doofy voice.
