I entered Bijou's baby picture - thanks for the heads-up on this contest. I never win anything so I'm not sitting here getting excited but I sure hope you or one of our Canadian members gets to win something. That would be so great!

Here's the photo I submitted.

I am at work so I couldn't access your albums to see your pics. I submitted one of Mika in Jennifer's name (our daughter - her cat). Hope I don't forget to tell her I submitted her name.

I can't see me submitting a photo every day though.

Thanks, it's a favourite of mine as well. His ears looked so big for the rest of him. I remember sending it to my friend and her first comment was, "do you think his ears are big enough". He looks like a little blue-eyed bat!
