Winners of the Whaleoil Top cat competition revealed

Our competition had three cat– egories but due to the number of entries from owners of ex-cats who to paraphrase Monty Python … have passed on, who are no more, who have ceased to be, who have expired and gone to meet their maker, who are bereft of life, who rest in peace, whose metabolic processes are now history, who have kicked the bucket, shuffled off their mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible, I have created a brand new category called Ex-cats.

The winners of the Beauty, Personality, Ex-cat and Fat cat categories as judged by our readers upvotes are as follows…


First place goes to KatB’s cat Anubis.


First place winner of Whaleoil Top cat competition BEAUTY section-PHOTO supplied Reader KatB’s cat Anubis started life out as a sick little kitten. After surviving the Christchurch earthquakes, Anubis eventually came to live with KatB after his original owners had to move town. Very placid and a little bit mischievous, he’s a great pet and he sheds virtually no fur. PHOTO supplied

Second place goes to BlueMerle’s cat

Fur like silk, blue and green eyes and rat exterminator extraordinaire. PHOTO supplied

Third place goes to Jude’s cat Snitch

First place is shared by FOUR cats who all received nine upvotes.

Wasapilot’s cat. Wilson is his name, technology is his game. “He would watch an aquarium app on my ipad, so much so that we considered buying him his own device, as when we tried to reclaim the ipad he would get the claws out.” PHOTO supplied

Jude’s cat Henry.PHOTO supplied

Dave’s cat Pookie. ” the runt of the litter who has stolen our hearts. The daughter had to have him, whilst we didn’t want a cat he has won us all over. This cat had to be fed a diet of clay to correct his tummy, and carefully reared, but what a personality, from rat catcher to sweetheart. In order, nothing better than a cuddle to stop me reading W/O in the evening.” Trying to guard the house, our gargoyle waiting for us to get home every day, why use the cat door when he has the humans trained to open the doors for him. Just playing, every time I try to make the bed he magically appears to play, er help me make it. And, he talks to us whenever he wants something, he just makes sure he sits on us to hold us down whilst placing his demands. PHOTO supplied

JEL51’s cat Lochie, the Cat-who-thinks-he’s-a-Lab who you can hear many a time saying…”FGS sit down Ness” PHOTO supplied


Second place is shared by two cats who both got six upvotes.

Nermal’s cat Toofus is a character, he slobbers over everyone he meets. Half his top lip is missing, from when some lowlife threw him out of a car. Joined Nermal’s family via Whangarei SPCA. PHOTO supplied

First place goes to Ex JAFA’s cat Hillary


Ex JAFA’s cat Hillary. I’m tempted to go and hide in my safe place, because my late kitty is too late to even enter this competition. Hillary was the kittiest kitty ever.


Second place goes to Curly1952’s cat Bonny.


Curly1952’s cat Bonny – Passed away and was cremated 8 years ago (haven’t got the heart to let her go!!)

Third place goes to Anne White’s cat Benaud .

Anne White’s cat. Hi I’m Benaud as in cream, white, off-white, ivory, bone or beige. I am actually dead right now because I got too friendly with a car and got squashed. Nevertheless this competition doesn’t say I have to be alive at the time of entering. I was such a fantastic cat that my people won’t ever get another one in case they get too attached to it. You can see my personality oozing through as I sit in my favourite place on the fence. I am in the personality section although I think you will agree I would sweep the floor in the looks department as well. PHOTO supplied
