Most adorable avatar contest

I think we need a most adorable avatar contest. My kitty would win paws down!!


  • That would be fun. But I tell you - it would be hard to judge. Animals hold a special place in my heart (my kitty avatar is sitting in a pile of snow, saying "I can't feel my butt". I actually copied it from the ICANHAZCHEEZBURGER website)

    There are a few dogs and horses. I love all animals, but in my opinion, horses are the most majestic. The others are awesome too.

    .... it would be fun, though!
  • I have 4 cats and I think they believe I am their personal property. The littlist one thinks she can sit on me anywhere anytime. She love to curl up next to me in bed and eventually will be on my neck with her butt in my face!!
  • I could not get in the house and to a chair fast enough for her.

    My husband was actually a bit jealous! Can you believe?
  • I can't change my avitar because my little Mercster (my avitar) has been gone just over a year and I'm still grieving the loss of him. I will, however, enter the contest with pictures of my little Wally.


  • I love those ears. What a cutie. I'd be teasing him mercilessly...lol

    And mercster looks like a prince sitting there. So handsome.:)
  • Yes, Wally is quite a pill. He's adorable beyond belief, with the big ears and legs about 2 inches long. He's also quite the little mischief-maker (because he can get away with quite a lot).

    People even come up to me in the park and say, "This must be Wally..." - he's very popular and well-known.

    But all of you guys with your kittys, horses and doggies are all beautiful and adorable. Gotta love the babies!
  • I love pets and have a kitten who may win hands down but how about Goth/vampire/b&w portrait? cheers. Charry

    Kris, I love the idea!
    And I think it should apply to any category.
    I for one generally change my avatar monthly. When I was better physically, I was changing them weekly and sometimes twice a week.

    So I would love to see all different avatars

    As always, they have to remain within the boundaries of Spine-Health rules.... So, GP rated avatars only..
    Perhaps a few PG-13s

    We need to set categories:

    - Funniest
    - Sadiest
    - Most lovable
    - etc

    Lets come up with some categories to fit avatars into.

  • sounds like a good idea to have some fun!
  • I have a couple of more, but the one I use as my avatar and the one below is my favorite, though it was taken about mid way through his last year and I sometimes wonder if he was asking me why he had to hurt so much,
    I guess he and I belong in the pity category.
    oh, it's a thumbnail, if you want to see it a little clearer.
