So, a friend of mine rescued two starving kittens from a garage roof, just a couple of days before going off to the Pennsic War, so I'm kitty-sitting.  They're remarkably tame for kittens that have been in human hands for less than a week; the black one purrs for me when petted, though he tries to run off to do things (which we aren't permitting just in case the guaranteed, industrial-grade wormer didn't kill off all the eggs) and the grey one is happy to be held and petted, and happy to play with string, but is not so sure about purring. 

I wish I could let the kittens have the run of the living room; but better safe than sorry. Except for when people are holding them, they're coralled in a dog-crate, in the middle of the living room floor, so I can mop the whole area down when they leave.  And people use soap and water. 

My friend will make sure they're tame enough, healthy, and fixed, and then hand them off to a shelter unless someone adopts them first. 

Anyway, they're kittens, so I took some pictures.  And a couple of them seemed destined for bad grammar.  So I thought I'd hold a contest!

Here's the pictures to be captioned:

I can re-crop the grey cat's photo to allow for more words, if needed; the black cat wanted to see what was making that clicking noise, so that photo didn't have anything I could slice away!

Prizes -- there will be a prize for the best caption for each of them.  It has to be something that I don't have to mail, and that doesn't take me too much time.  A short poem, for example, or even art for an icon.  Or the right to name an as-yet unnamed character in Fireborn.  (I will entertain other suggestions.)

And the winners get glory, of course.  (Or ignominy, I suppose.)

(My Angel said I should say, "Winners each get a cat!" but I single-handedly voted her down.  You do not have to want a cat to enter the contest.)

Anyway, the comments spot below is open.  Make me laugh!

Oh, and just 'cause, here's a photo of them together:
 

P.S.  Feel free to tell your friends about the contest.

I like the basket picture:

"Basement cat faces Grey Council cat: Purring ensues!"
