Is there anything more irresistible than a tabby's tummy? Tripper, my 20-lb Tabby, constantly taunts me by sleeping on his back, but I risk bodily harm if I try to snorgle his spotted tum.

This week, Trip will be competing with nearly a hundred other tum-flashers in the annual "Do the Q!" contest. This popular photo contest was started three years ago by tabby Monty Q Cat to showcase cats on their backs. The original contest featured two CATegories: 1) The Full Monty; and 2) The Monty Q.

The Full Monty is the traditional cat-on-his-back pose:

The Monty Q is a variation in which the cat is stretched out, tummy side down, with back legs extended behind him, with the tail curled provocatively:

In addition to the two main CATegories there's a "Viewer's Choice Award" and "Best Interpretation on a Theme." Perfectly Parker is sponsoring the "Silliest Q" Category, and Victor Tabbycat is sponsoring the "Curly Q Tail" CATegory:

Entries are not limited to tabbies, but you've got to admit, these tabbies are testament to the "if you've got it, flaunt it! philosophy:
