Madness isn’t limited to March and December! I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a while, so I’ll be shamelessly copying UkuleleDan’s approach to determining that Die Hard is the best Christmas movie. Except that instead of Christmas movies, wild species of canids and felids will be going paw-to-paw to see which one is the greatest/cutest/bestest/whichever criteria you use to vote!
I’ve completed series on both felids (Caturday) and canids (Wednesday Woof), and it was from these series that I put together the contenders. Again, you can use any personal criteria you want to decide which animal to vote for - I personally will be using cuteness and overall awesomeness. I recommend perusing the posts about each animal and looking at as many pictures of them as you can find, especially the babies!
