Don’t let those puppy eyes fool you: Pudge is a ruthless contender who will do whatever it takes to win A-Meow-Ican Idol, and that is what I like about her.
Flat-face cats are big this year, and Pudge knows how to work that angle to her advantage. Those confidently crossed paws and that turned-up nose say “I am a diva; I am a winner; I am the best at what I do … count me out at your peril.” Fierce.
What impresses me about Jasper is that he is not afraid to hide in bubble wrap when the going gets tough. That is a supremely sensible thing to do and a useful lesson for all of us.
Speaking of courage, it takes a truly brave cat to wear a mustache like that and I salute him for it. Ten points for style.
Don’t let those derpy cross-eyes fool you - behind that “gormless halfwit” gaze, Athena has a mind like a steel trap. OK, that is probably not strictly true, but she is cute as a freaking button and she looks like she is very soft, which is two for two in the categories that actually matter.
6. Berlioz Cuticle
Like the most famous symphony of his namesake, Berlioz is nothing short of fantastic. Boom. Nailed it. How did I get so good at this?
Be sure to note Berlioz Cuticle’s impressive use of the feline “postural play response mechanism,” also known as the “coochie coochie coo” maneuver. Powerful stuff.
