I visited a local public hall this evening and noticed this sheet detailing fundraising progress.
Now, first of all, good on them! It’s great that they’re raising money for their hall…
Secondly…WHAT THE HELL IS “guess the cat”?!?!
I have been wracking my brain over this all night (I know, you’d think that a thorough wrack of this peanut would take a mere minute). I have come up with several possible ideas.
1. Much like at a country fair where people guess the weight of a cake and then win aforementioned food, in Guess The Cat you must guess the weight of a feline. This could be made more challenging by choosing a long hair kitty like my Charlie Yowyow (pictured below, apparently confused by the bird feeder). However a ready supply of cats would be needed so as to gift the winner.
2. Photos of “celebrity” moggies could be shown as a slide show in a quiz type setting, no conferring, no imdb. Famous cats such as…ummm…the one that was in the opening credits for Coronation Street or the one that used to live on Downing Street or…ummm…this seems like a slightly limited game.
3. Fecal samples are taken from all of the participants cats, and by taken I don’t mean manually extracted, and presented in a litter box. The participants must pay £1, guess which shit belongs to their cat and the winner gets…see i’m out of ideas again! I can’t imagine that people would pay for their own cat shit.
Oh, the slight discoloration and strong scent of haddock, it must be Geoffrey’s!
I’m stumped. Can anyone else think of anything?

I’m giggling and crying in public. Thanks.
Can’t stop laughing – thank-you! My headache much improved
I think you have images of cat’s and you have to guess the breed!
I hope it has nothing to do with the Schrodinger’s cat thought experiment.
Very funny you!
It might be guess the name of the cat. What I’ve seen many times before is a big cuddly toy of a teddy, lion, dog; whatever really. There is a sheet with about 50 names on and you pay a £1 for each name you bet on and whoever gets the right answer (names are pulled out of a hat or something to the same effect) wins the toy.
This game sounds less exciting; perhaps they win the cat?
Yes, they’d win the cat!
That’s what I believe too… guess the name of the cat… Barbara
Your Charlie Yowyow is quite the looker! He bears some resemblance to my beloved (and sadly, departed) Sydney, a Maine Coon.
