Ok. I'm going to whine for awhile on this one, so stop reading if you detest whining.

From the beginning this seemed like a trick question: Have you stopped beating your wife?

Seriously -- a challenge suggestion? Fun idea. But "Amuse us. (and the more ridiculous, out there, kookoo... the better!)"? I just knew that that was doomed to fail. Getting ridiculous and kookoo wasn't going to be seen as a serious challenge suggestion. But wait a second, it didn't say a serious challenge suggestion.

So I went with the description and came up with the silliest thing I could think of.

So it was hard seeing people saying they were looking for viable challenge suggestions. It just makes one want to shout: "READ THE DESCRIPTION!!"

Now. That being said. There were some people that managed to get the kookoo, silly, and I could see it being a challenge. Selfies in Chrome and red nose day were brilliant, and managed to bring a believable challenge as well as silliness. I hope they do really well. And perhaps if I had simply titled this drinking buddies, it would have worked better. But I wanted the ridiculous.

Perhaps if it had been a good shot, that would have worked the best? :)

Perhaps if I stopped bitching and moaning I'd have shot something for contre jour?

Oh drat.

Ah. I can't go back and edit out the whining until rollover. Sorry. Too sleepy. I just put it in to get it off my chest. So hopefully no one will read it before morning. :)

Yep, I agree, there were some that were great shots but kookoo? Nope. This certainly met the challenge though, I can imagine the difficulty in getting cats to cooperate lol.

Most people don't read the challenge description, look at a few in the TT. Thought this would beat mine for sure, good set up.

Since we were told the more kookoo the better, this is hard to beat.

As far as I know, cats won't drink light beer.

Too funny. I gotta know what you put on the straws to make them lick them :)

I wish both cats were either full body or cropped out. Someone one of each looks a bit odd to me. But I've worked with cats, so you take what you can get :)
