If you're interested email me at


There aren't too many!

The contest is open to all kitties who blog.

(Well, really we'll allow other bloggin' animals,we've had woofQ's, and bunQ's, and even a hamQ one year too...)

One official picture for pose per kitty/animal, and please title each one!

To quote Skeezix: "It's my contest, so I can change the rules anytime I want."

It's one kitty pic per pose, but you can enter both poses. And if you're a multi-cat household each kitty can enter both times too. (I think I just confused myself...)


Donny and Marie and Casey all live together, so each of them can submit two pictures each: one Full Monty and one Monty Q. (If they do each pose.)

Please submit all pictures by August 31th!!!

How To Enter:

Take a picture of yourself in one of the two poses and post it here by logging into the contest page as doingtheq AT gmail DOT com, with NOPE as the secret word.

If you need help postin' pictures please let me know on my blog over here.

Please post your name, pose, year and blog address with your picture-example:

Millie Full Monty 2009(

Marie MontyQ 2009(


From Sept. 1st-10th the polls will be open for evfurryone to vote.

No box stuffin, please!

The votes will be tallied and the winners will be announced on Sept. 12th.

(Maybe sooner or later, don't rush me!)

But most of all, HAVE FUN!

Hi Monty, I don't think I entered correctly. I emailed my pics to but now I see a comment saying there is some sort of login. Can you email me at if you have a chance and let me know what I did wrong?

Thanks you so much

Hi Monty,

What a fun contest this is! We are first time participants ... we hope you like our entries. :)

Being the rookies that we are, we are wondering how we go about voting. Can any of you veterans let us know, please? Fanks!

Have a great weekend, everybody.
