Announcing the winner of the Softest Kitteh on Our Street Contest!

I know some of you feared that the Softest Kitteh of Them All on Our Street Contest would end in tears and bloodshed (*cough*Erotic Horizon*cough*). I myself feared it would end in a draw. Read on to discover how it all played out.

We started over at CJ’s first. I know we said we were going to walk back and forth, but… it was something like +18F/-7.8C, so we ditched that idea lickity split.

Before we started, I revealed May’s top secret training plan: multiple daily brushings, including a special Zoom Groom session last week. CJ was instantly concerned and began to point out that Oblio was just naturally soft and no performance enhancing techniques had been used. Whatevah. *rolls eyes*

Oblio was pretty excited about the contest.

*staticky dragging sound*

We selected five softness assessment zones for our competition: back, behind the ears, top of the head, under the chin, and tummy. I was a little worried when I first petted Oblio’s back – his back fur is amazingly soft (no guard hairs??), and I knew May couldn’t compete with it. Rubbing his head, scritching behind his ears, and stroking under his chin didn’t reassure me too much – May seemed softer, but dang, his back! Then I reached for his tummy…

“No! Don’t touch my tummy, strange lady! No!!!” -Oblio

A-ha! Oblio was going down, down, down – he had coarse guard hairs on his tummy!

Next we came over here. Yesterday you saw how Chaos, um, “welcomed” CJ to the condo.

“Let me go see if we have any ketchup… Stay right there. I’ll be back.” -Chaos

“I’m afeared of you, strange lady, because I’m sure the big kitty wouldn’t take such a hate to you without a very, very good reason.” -Mayhem

(*ahem* – like, he’s a crabby butt???)

CJ was initially ecstatic as she discovered that May’s back was not as soft as Oblio’s, but I could detect a look of concern on her face as she moved from May’s back, to her head, behind her ears, under her chin, and…

“I am not happy. Not happy at all. Just in case you can’t tell.” -Mayhem

to her soft, floofy tummy-of-exceptional-softness (ToES, complete with vikini! “V” is for “Victory”,  you know).

“What?! My mom… voted against me?” -Oblio

So, after all that… we drew a winner from those of you who said that Mayhem was going to win: congrats to Debby, whose book is already on its way to her!

“Poor Oblio. He looks so sad. But, really, he should’ve known better. I am a Panther Princess, after all.” -Mayhem

Head over to the Thrillionth Page to read Oblio’s concession speech.

  1. Poor little Oblio, didn’t seem very fair did it? Hope your mum gave you lots of extra special treats to make up for being a traitor 😉

    Congrats to the Panther Princess!

  2. I had expectations here people, I had the popcorn – I had the remote set to record… I was ready.

    Kitten mommy’s and pussys, I needed dirt, I needed growls, I needed claws at half mast – gimme something!!!!

    I give up*****!

    How tame was this pow-pow…. I take back my half vote Mayhem and Oblio, you didn’t even put up a resistance…

    Shame on you, shame om you all….. !!!!!

    Congrats Debby, you curl up and think of Mayhem – you just do that…. LOL


  3. Congratulations May!!! Everyone should know that Panther Princess tummy fur is the softest ever. Now if there were a contest for back fur? Toe fur? Tail fur? I’d be winning. Just sayin’

  4. YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY *&^%%%!%^&~ My confetti throwing abilities!!!! Happy Dance Happy Dance Happy Dance… I had faith in my kitty the whole time!!! Now honey, throw on that tiara and prance around!!!
    Hope your day is going good Chris??!! Snow….

  5. Oh yes, I recognize that raised-back-leg-while-biting maneouver Oblio- that may have been your downfall.

    You are both winners, in my book.

  6. Our kitty gets like that when you touch her belly a little too much. Not that it stops my hubby who was “squeezing” purrs out of her while Saru-chan rested on his shoulder. So cute!

  7. Congratulations to Debbie! What a fun contest Chris and CJ – I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see who would win and be announced as the “softest”!


  8. Was there ever really any question? Of course Mayhem is the softest kitteh. I do feel sorry for Oblio, though; how awful to be betrayed by his own Mommy! (He looks just like my Peaches, btw.)

  9. Congrats, Mayhem! Wear your tiara in good health and softness!

    And Oblio, you should know that using claws to prove you’re the softest will backfire. It’s better to squirm around so all hands always end up petting your back instead.

  10. Oh, Mayhem, you are Teh Best. May I pet you someday, Your Softness?

    Hannibal, the Fluffball of Doom, has been MIA since Saturday night. We are officially concerned.

  11. Mayhem, I want to extend my personal congratulations. I thought my soft back ruled the universe, but you do have a luxuriously soft tummy, I am told. I have made my concession speech. Now I am sleeping.

  12. Of course, May is softest. (I’m at work, and Meezer can’t hear me, plus she wasn’t in the competition)
    But Oblio? He’s such a cute red boy-kitty!

  13. How is Chaos taking Mayhem’s coronation as Softest Kitteh? Has the fame gone to Mayhem’s head?

    What a great way to make petting kitties sound serious and important!

  14. Congrats to Mayhem! Now if there was only some way to have her cross state lines to go head to head with my orange and white boy. He has no guard hairs, back or tummy. Mwah-haha!
