Now With More Cat Tongue!

No really, I'm not kidding
She doesn’t know it yet, but I’m having a secret contest with Ashbloem. The rules are simple: obsessively photograph your cats in the hopes of catching them with their tongues hanging out. I’m not even sure if there’s a prize for winning this contest, other than seeing more cat tongue. So really, we all win.
I have the day off of work today, and plan on doing nothing but follow my cats around with my camera. I might smear butter all over them, too, just to jump start the licking.
Although really, if I’m being honest with myself, I could photograph my cats day and night and still never get a picture as good as this one of Ash’s Thundercat:
So, yeah. That’s the plan. Just me, two cats, a tub of butter, and a camera. This blog My social life is going downhill fast.

    Damn. What a way to close out a post. I had to honour that.

    OMG – I love this!
    Actually, now that I look again, Thundercat’s expression isn’t much different from the one Mr. Lionel Richie gave me when I dared to pick him up….maybe I can help recreate the look for you on my next visit.

    personally, i’m always a bit fan of interesting cat pictures, so if needed, i can supply the butter.

    OMG! Cat photos… what is it about cat photos?? I am powerless to resist them. Gah! I feel like Superman under the influence of kryptonite: must. bow. to. the. cats.

    Oh YEAH? I, too, have left work early today, and am armed with peanut butter and the speed setting on my camera! I will prevail!
    (That one of your cat is so perfect though, I almost want to give up.)

    Between your cat and Thundercat, I just can’t take anymore. I have to go pet my cats.

    Ash: Peanut butter? Ooh. That’s so sticky, it will take them ages to lick off… foiled again!
    Tracy Lynn: What? No butter?

    I was trying to read the brand of butter. Is it Lard Heart? I clicked on the photo to biggify it but could not get past the pats of butter the Lard Maiden had for breasts.

    My social life was doing fine until I decided to “take on” twenty invisible cats. They like to watch me knit.
