"DNMC - Do Not Mock Cat!" is a different entry into the Acronyms challenge. I am really glad that you spelled out your acronym some entries were too hard to tell what they meant.

Birman is giving us that look I have seen my mom's Himalayan makes when he is not getting what he wants. I think if we have a little more focus on him, right in the nose it might have helped. Also I might have tried to shoot with a plainer background and surrounding, so we can focus only on him.

Overall I think you did a good job coming up with an acronym we all now and making it fun.

Heh - I didn't recognize Octopussy with only the normal number of legs. I still think this is a hoot of a picture!

Too funny! Extra point for creativity. The look on the cat's face is priceless.

That is one cat with attitude! :D For some reason this photo seems flat. Could be the lighting? As for the title, I would have been hard pressed to figure out the acronym - which defeats part of the challenge IMO (let the image describe the acronym). Anyway - Good luck.

From the challenge: Title your image with your chosen acronym, and let your image explain what the letters represent!

As such you shouldn't put in your title what the letters mean. Thats what the picture was supposed to do.

I don't think the intent of this challenge was to make up acronyms.
