Last Sunday Itchyfingers were among the many people to turn up at Jurong Point Shopping Centre to ogle at the many beautiful girls and handsome boys…They came in all shape and sizes…slim, rounded, black, white, young and mature, but all so beautiful and gorgeous! Itchyfingers were at a beauty contest again, and if you have been following Itchyfingers, you will remember that we went to a similar event last year, in search of the fairest of all – The Most Beautiful Domestic Cat!

This year, the contest aimed at searching for Singapore’s Next Top Feline and the Most Prosperous Cat, as well as a voting contest for the Maneki Neko (the Japanese Lucky Cat or 招财猫) Lookalike. These beauty contestants have to be non-pedigree, community cats. Like last year, the event organised by Cat Welfare Society aimed at raising awareness of the plight of community cats and hopefully more people will discover their beauty and adopt these homeless animals.

We arrived late and missed the most of the search for Singapore’s Next Top Feline… 😦 The worse thing was, I just missed seeing Princess Samantha on stage!

This time, Princess Samantha transformed into Empress Dowager! Isn’t
she cute? At 19, she’s gorgeous…She was one of the three finalists for the
Next Top Feline…just missed by that little bit! What a pity!

We also missed Ferrari Chua! But luckily he and his mummy were seated nearer
to us so we could sneaked in this shot…Ferrari used to be pure white when
he was younger. Now at two, he started to spot some light brownish tones
on his face and body. Very handsome boy!

This beauty, Mili, looks so much like our cat friend, Dusty!

I din catch the names of this cutie and his friend in the cage…but look at 
his eyebrows! 😀 So cute!

Getting nervous cos of the crowd…He and his friend went to the finalists’

The title of the Singapore’s Next Top Feline went to Marine, a cross-eyed
cat…We were standing a bit too far from the stage so couldn’t take a nicer
close-up of Marine…

Many of the contestants were not only far from where we were, some of them were also inside cages. Hence we didn’t take that many photos this time. But this boy was so big that no matter how far you were, I think you could still get a BIG picture of him… 😀

At two, Horatio Chua is a hefty 10kg! 😀 Not obese, but I think he’s just a
big boy… 😀 Mummy was offering his fans a chance to carry him, but not
many dared to take up the challenge! 😀 He was contesting for the Most 
Prosperous Cat title!

Horatio on stage…he looked by a furry carpet…

Staring into the eyes of his admirers…”Choose me….”

Hanging on to mummy...

The top 3 +1 finalists for the Most Prosperous Cat on stage. The two skinny
ones were hiding inside the cage. Alas, their combined power, cuteness
and sizes were no fight for the other two mega-sized contestants…

In the end, the one with the loudest applause from the audience won! I was initially disappointed that Horatio didn’t win…But I guess maybe his fans were just more shy and less vocal…Hahah….But when I went up later to take a closer look at the champion, my goodness….What a handsome boy!

Look at those soulful eyes!!!! This is Benny, the boy that likes packs of tissue
paper…He looked so nervous…

I think many people were like Itchyfingers, instantly mesmerized by this
handsome boy and went ga ga over him! The poor boy was surrounded by
so many fans who lose control of themselves and everyone wanted to molest
him…Hey kitty kitty kitty… 😀

“Daddy, these people are crazy…I wanna go home…”
