Thursday Cat-O-Lympics - Quadruple Events
As you know, the Cat-O-Lympics are being held all over the Cat Blogosphere this week (established this year by the beautiful Fin with events being suggested and/or hosted by many other kitties).
Today, we're participating in four, count 'em four, events!
First up, Fin's Auntbean Jennifer is hosting this event in homage to her kitty, Nessa - Hiding! Our entry for this event once again features that cutest of the cute, Mr. Ziggy, who was caught hiding under the boogie mat just recently. Good thing The Mommy had her flashy box thing nearby!
We also just heard about one of the events being held by our friends, House of Cats, Extreme Climbing! Now, regular visitors to our bloggie know that we can be found on top of the kitchen cabinets a *lot* -- everyone but Gypsy (and maybe our departed Callie) has been up there. So we have plenty of entries that we can use for the indoors division of this event. Which one to choose was the question! In fact, we're going to do two entries for this event -- one on top of the kitchen cabinets, and one on top of the kitty napping tower (featured yesterday). That one takes a lot of effort to get to the top of!
Here's our entry for the kitchen cabinet, featuring Bugsy:
And here's our entry for the kitty napping tower, also featuring Bugsy on the tippy top shelf (this was taken in August just a couple of weeks after his eye removal surgery -- he was already back to extreme climbing that quickly!), with a cameo appearance by Pixie on the shelf just below him:
For our third event, we're making a late entry into Fin's Balance Beam event. We may be too late for the official competition, we're not sure (no rules, right?), but The Mommy just remembered this photo and it's the only one we have that would work. Featuring Pixie, balancing on the shower door while at the same time sticking his tongue out at Bugsy, who is on top of the bathroom cabinet (another potential entry for Extreme Climbing!):
Finally, we didn't think we'd be able to have an entry for Milo and Alfie's Bare Paw Fighting event, as we really do more wrestling or chasing than we do smacky paw fighting. But in looking for one of our other entries, we found this photo of Ziggy and Roxy getting after it with paws extended and ready to rumble. Not a great entry, but about the best we'll be able to do, and it shows what bare paw fighting is really all about, we think!
Wow, these Cat-O-Lympics take a lot of work and agility...we may have to take tomorrow off to recover! Good luck to everycat and everydog in these events!
The Mommy is currently owned by 6 beautiful, lovable, fantastic kitties that make up The Kitty Krew -- Bugsy and Sassy are 6.5 years old (siblings), Roxy is 4.5 years old (half-sibling to them), Pixie is 3.5 years old, Gypsy is 1.5 years old and Ziggy is just at 1 year old. The Mommy loves her kitties, and they love her right back!
