    Wow, I'm really surprised. I had some camera trouble and figured with some of the really nice cats entered that I didn't have a shot. I appreciate everyone that voted, all 376 of you. It's great that we get so much participation in this challenge every year. Thank you so much Codi for putting it on. I know it is a lot of work and I know you get nothing for it in return. You are just too cool. ;) Thanks again, and congratulations to everyone that entered!! Here is a pic of my entry after I solved my camera troubles:

    Cole Congratulations!!!

    The expression in that cat's eyes is amazing, and the nose texture and coloring are spot on!!

    Codi, thank you for putting this together, there should be a plaque for you. You have to enter a cat next year to give Cole a race.

    I Learned a TON just looking at these cats!!

    Great Job all who entered!!!!

    Congrats Cole. The expression and nose got me. Camera trouble- who would have known.

    Nice job everyone, some nice cats. :)
  13. Was not my choice but congratulations on a nice cat. On my computer I could not see the eyes in any of the 3 pics so I had to pass on it simply because could not see eye detail other than that it was great cat. Guess I need to adjust my contrast or lightness for better viewing huh!

    really great cat Cole, Congratulations. There was another cat with a similar pose. Where did you get your form and/or did you modify it? You are not to far from me. I may have to come for a lesson sometime :)

    Bobby, that was a nice mount. You had a beautiful specimen to work with.

    Jerry, it's a Don Holt manikin, available through WASCO and VanDykes. (I believe WASCO has it listed as a Jan VanHoesen manikin) Mine was only altered a tad for length, the position was not changed. It looks like the other one (mounted by C.J.) was altered for head position.

    I believe we met at Cindy's shop late last summer, and I'm sure we'll meet again at the KS show this year if you go. Thanks everyone for the compliments.
  18. Congrats again Cole,
