My stand in model when my kids are gone. Thanks to phish for helping out!!!

I really liked the idea. I was hoping to get a little more realistic mouse from the pet store, but this was as good as it got.

Mo is NOT the most helpful model on the planet. The mouse was catnapped, and he was more interested in rubbing on it than anything else. Most of the time he actually ignored it.

I had four possibilities that I liked. I wish that Mo's face was better on this one, but I liked the action. Here are the others:

Not surprised to see you win yet another blue with this image! So playful and fun!

The outtakes are great, too but the entry was definitely the best.

Congratulations Wendy, very fun photo, and nice acting too. One of my cats, the youngest one, brings back home 1 to 3 mice, sometimes alive, every single night... I believe I need to challenge him a bit, like on your picture, even though I suspect he would easily win!

You were expecting more from a cat? Truly, Mo seems to be average on the feline cooperation continuum :)

Congrats on the blue for this charming image.

My favorite. Great expression, love the cap, nice lighting, story telling, toothpicks important to the story - and then there's the cat. Well done.
