I found a few more. BTW: I am not entering the contest so much as just showing some pics of my pets I hadn't shown before.
The first and third one demonstrate most cavy personality types. Shy (especially that third photo, hiding their heads = I'm safe LOL). The second picture, and the fourth one show our most outgoing cavy; Snuggles: curious and funny.
The last one shows a bit of an optical illusion.  If you look carefully, it APPEARS as though the Agouti colored piggy has his head mounted on a newspaper wall of sorts. 
Not to fear,  he is turning his head and his body is hidden at an angle.  Tis hard to believe they can turn those tubby / stubby little bodies that sharply, but they can.

ChrysN (author)  Goodhart5 years ago
Cute, how many do you have? I like the second picture with the white one looking out of the cage.
Goodhart ChrysN5 years ago
At this point, we have 3 girls left. The one looking out of the cage (and also at the keyboard), is Snuggles. The one behind her in the cage is Marshmallow (marshy), and the Grey agouti one looking out of the tube is Maura. We get them from the local shelter, when we can. The others are no longer with us....
ChrysN (author)  Goodhart5 years ago
How sweet!
Goodhart ChrysN5 years ago
Thanks, she makes such a CUTE patch too :-)
ChrysN (author)  Goodhart5 years ago
She does!
Goodhart ChrysN5 years ago
One more note, although it is hard to see from the pictures, Snuggles has DEEP BLUE eyes. Most Cavies have blood red or deep ruby red eyes; she is a very special piggy in many ways :-)
What did you do to post your pictures? You were having trouble before.
I was in MSIE, I went home and used my FF browser and it worked.
I tried to post but the post just disappears when you add an image :(
ChrysN (author)  scraptopower5 years ago
There appears to be a problem posting images, hopefully the bug will be fixed soon.
Any progress that you know of?
Yeah it works :)

That's Tom !

More to come...

Goodhart ChrysN5 years ago
It seems ESPECIALLY problematic in MSIE....I can post from home fine (FF recently updated)
ChrysN (author)  Goodhart5 years ago
I was wondering if it was browser specific, since I haven't had any trouble posting images with FireFox.
I'm using FF but not the most recent version ......
Patch please!

I'm posting my pets soon, but I don't know when you're putting the deadline. when does the contest end?
ChrysN (author)  username2525 years ago
I'll be running it for maybe a month, or longer depending one how many responses I get.
lil larry5 years ago
Can we just let you see an instructable about our pets becuase my library is just not quite working...
ChrysN (author)  lil larry5 years ago
Sure or you can wait until it is fixed, I think the instructables staff are working on it. I have not set a deadline for the contest so there is time.
Well, I made an instructable. It's http://www.instructables.com/id/-My-Pet-Photos-/. I think there's seventeen pictures...
ChrysN (author)  lil larry5 years ago
Great pictures!
Thanx! I actually was thinking about making an instrucatble about my pets, but since now you have this contest, I have a good reason for making a random instructable! :D
dombeef5 years ago
Here are a few, I might add more soon
Also for the "Best Other Pet Photo" can it be a pet plant?
ChrysN (author)  dombeef5 years ago
Cute doggy. A plant is acceptable as a pet too.
dombeef ChrysN5 years ago
Thanks, she is about 9 years old now and is a scaredy cat.

http://www.instructables.com/id/Romeo-Super-Cover-Dog/Hey ChrysN; good idea for a little competition...I wanted to get in on it, but am having trouble accessing my image library from here. Has anyone else had this issue? I posted in bugs, but don't know how long that can take. I made a photo instructable of my pet, Romeo. click on link to see. Does that count?  Thanks.  
I can not access my images from here either....
ChrysN (author)  Goodhart5 years ago
Hmmm, I I seem to have picked a bad time to run this contest. Well I haven't set a deadline, so there is time.
Goodhart ChrysN5 years ago
Well, I have two pictures, one is in my library, the other one at home.....but the one is just "cute", not really anything spectacular photography-wise.....the other one uses a combonation of content shadowing and the cavy's "position" to make a really odd looking effect :-)
ChrysN (author)  Goodhart5 years ago
Nice, hopefully they will fix the image bug soon. I'd love to see both pictures.
Goodhart ChrysN5 years ago
Well, I've been told it is a really "odd looking, somewhat disturbing looking" picture LOL
ChrysN (author)  Creativeman5 years ago
He's super cute, great picture too. Since people are having trouble posting pictures that is a great way to work around it.
I think replying with images in comments has been buggy since the Facebook thing was put in and will require major work to fix it *sigh* But at least you were able to get image notes working on your instructable. That comes and goes too.
username2525 years ago
I'll enter as soon as I get my pictures together!
2hot2hack5 years ago
when dose it end??
ChrysN (author)  2hot2hack5 years ago
I'm not sure how long I'll be running the contest, it depends on whether I get a lot of entries, there does not seem to be much interest at this point.
so if nobody else enters dose that ean i win??
ChrysN (author)  2hot2hack5 years ago
Sure, but you will need to post a picture of your pet first!
