"She loves me, she loves me not, she loves me, she loves me not ....  oh bother, I've lost my place, back to the start.......she loves me........." 

"Muuuum - what were you saying about that feather duster?" 

Marjorie Dorfmann, US

“There has to be a bird around here some place!”

Ellen Pilch US

“Now where are the instructions to assemble this?”

Regina Boratgis, Lynn, MA, US

"Hm. One more and I'll have a complete set."

"Well, you could have knocked me down with a feather."

"I am sure there is one missing."

Jamaka Petzak, US

“At last!  The servant decided to share her feather collection!”

“And that last one was THIS big!” 

“This is my trophy circle.  Eat your heart out, fellow felines!”

“These are only my domestic conquests.  You should see the tropicals!”

“Well, would you rather I shared my rodent tail collection, hoomans?  WOULD YOU?”

Andrew Lane, Southampton, UK

"Pretty good collection if I say so myself!  Now I'd better hide them under the bed again before the staff see them!"

"My job as Senior Cat Amusement Toy Inspector (SCATI) means I often have to select new feathers that tickle my fancy." Winning caption

"Right, that's destroyed all the toys the humans bought - quite a feather in my cap (smiles inscrutably)"

"It's as though they're all pointing at me, trying to make me feel guilty - whatever guilty means!"

 

 

A Morning Kiss

A morning kiss, a discreet touch of his nose landing somewhere on the middle of my face.
Because his long white whiskers tickled, I began every day laughing.
