Wednesday Cat-O-Lympics - Competitive Napping


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 an event that our friend Huffle Mawson is hosting - Competitive Napping. Now, this is different from the Synchronized Snoozing event we participated in yesterday. Synchronized Snoozing requires, well, snoozing with synchronicity. Competitive Napping just requires napping -- and boy oh boy, do we know napping!

We've got 3 entries for this event (hey, with 6 cats in the house, it's okay if we do multiple entries, isn't it? we know they won't all win!). We don't have any really cool spots to sleep like Huffle and her parsley pot, or the trees that Paddy and Dushi of Cats in Trees have (they're a lock for a medal, we think, after seeing their entry). So we're going for the "adorable" look with our entries.

Our first entry is Pixie - isn't he cuuuuute? How can you resist the upside down head with one arm curled up look?


Next is our personal favorite entry - everyone say 'awwwwwwwwwwww' for Ziggy! Isn't he just too adorable for words?


And finally, we have an entry with 3 kitties that are doing their own form of competitive napping. You'll notice that Ziggy in the middle cat bed is all curled up, Roxy on the upper microfiber blankie is stretched out on her side with the right paw extended, while Bugsy on the bottom in the bright pink poof bed is stretched out on his tummy with both paws extended. They each have their own preferred form and method in their competition.


Good luck to all the entries, we've seen some really great ones!!

We think those are great - and we are sure multiple entries are ok because ther are no rules for the Cat-O-Lympics! We did a bunch too - but we were thinking of them as "one entry with multiple options" - so we are entering as "House of Cats" and not as individual kitties (or whatever they want to do is really fine - it is just fun to look back at all the old pictures for me!) We think your entries are great though - we could be in trouble!

No wonder your napping is on such a high level, there are so many champs in the house. But our votes go to young Ziggy. He is so talented.

All such good entries. Judging is going to be very difficult in this discipline. We are getting ready for the synchronised napping.
