Cat Identification Contest :-)

If you visit my blog regularly you may have recongnised that the header shows random wild cat EYES images every time you go to the blog.

So, here is small contest for the cat lovers among you.

These are all the 18 different wild cat header images in one picture.

Below are 22 possible IDs for these cats (so I do not make it too easy I have included 4 species, which are not in the picture :-)

The first reader of my blog who sends in the correct match list (images to names) by email to will win a 8″x10″ EYES print of the cat species of her/his choice.

A – Male African Lion / B – Clouded Leopard / C – Amur/Sigerian Tiger
