April 8’s winner for the cat band photo:

Without a lead singer, this band was a real cat-astrophe. They could have been purr-fect. — Meaghan Peterson, Chicago Heights

Trained by their parents, the Hep Cats, the newly formed Rock Cats strike out on their own. — Evert E. Kooyman, Oak Lawn

Three cool cats wait for those three blind mice. — Vince Vizza, Evergreen Park

Wow! It’s the reincarnation of the Stray Cats. There is James McDonnell, Brian Setzer and Lee Rocker. — Le’Brenda Vance, Chicago

Best of the Rest:

As overheard in the litter box: “We all have to do our part to pay for all our fancy cat food and kitty litter.” — Regina Sabadosa, Oak Lawn

This new gig is purr-fect. But having to shave our legs for the Rockettes left us catatonic. — Nancy C. Smith-Slee, Palos Heights

Move over Backstreet Boys. Here comes the New Cool Kats. — Guy Santillo, Glen Ellyn

Fred Flintstone forms a band from feral cats found in Bedrock. — Joseph A. Vaccaro, Tinley Park

The Pussycat Dolls got nothing on us. — EJ Oahueke, Worth

PAWS is a wonderful organization. They even have their own band. — John Morrissey, Tinley Park

For the politically correct-conscious, we’re no longer catty. We’re feline-like. — Jerry Centner, Oak Forest
