    The paws are out between twelve animals battling each other in the finals of a cutest pet competition, after it was rocked by claims of cheating.

    And with over $15000 of prizes on the line in the search to final Queensland's cutest pet, questions have been raised by rivals against a cuddly cat whose vote count has seen her surge ahead of the competition.

    Miss Coconut, a two-year-old Bengal, racked up almost 30,000 votes in the preliminary round, while competitors were left trailing with thousands less.

    The runaway victory left many entrants scratching their heads, as the bulk of Miss Coconut's votes were said to have appeared in the dead of night.

    As rumours swirled about the authenticity of the support, complaints were eventually made to the RACQ and Queensland Police.

    However both services confirmed that following an investigation, the feline's supporters had been cleared of any wrongdoing.


    In the finals, Miss Coconut is currently in second place behind a boisterous bulldog named Biggie.

    Described in his profile 'devilishly handsome', Biggie's owner claims if her pooch isn't 'stealing hearts, he's breaking them'.

    With battle lines having firmly been drawn around them the pets are continuing to put their best paw forward and relish their time in the spotlight.

    But the eventual winner will indeed not take it all with the 11 remaining finalists also guaranteed a coveted spot in the 2019 RACQ calendar.

  6. Bulldogs are cute when they are puppies. Then they turn into that.:\
    It's kind of like a pokemon you hate to evolve.

    And the breed is suseptable to water puppy syndrome. I believe it's essentially like fetal hydrops in humans, where they retain way too much fluid while developing in the womb and end up with potentially fatal conditions from their organs being swollen.

    Anyway, ballot stuffing a pet contest seems weird and pointless. It's probably not just the prizes though. It's that coveted "mommy of the cutest pet" title that they really want.

  10. I'm actually thinking of getting a bengal cat once I head back home and will be stationary for a bit, they seem like pretty awesome cats who act nothing like cats. You can play fetch with them and teach them tricks and walk them on a leash, it sounds pretty neat.

    I like how the goddamn police were called over this, though. I wonder if CWC had called the cops when he was screwed over by rule-breaking and vote-stuffing if would have won that trip to Seattle after such an intense investigation.

    Also the cat must win not only because it's a cat but (also) because that dog is real fucking ugly. I mean I like dogs as much as the next person but fuck, that one's ugly as sin.

  20. Very high maintenance from what I hear though. Like having a hunting dog, only x1000. If your fox hound does not get his walks on the regular, he'll get mopey, maybe destroy your shoes. If the Bengal don't get his walks on the regular he'll destroy the room. They do look like fun though if you are willing to put in the effort.
