Cat-A-Lympics News!!

Mom here - I know, I know, you've probably been wondering if I was ever going to mention Cat-A-Lympics. Especially with the real Olympics right around the corner. And hey, wasn't I going to write a book on just this topic? Yes, I totally was. I admit it, when my girl passed, it really kicked some of my heart out of the project. I know she wouldn't want that. 

In the meantime one of my best friends, Huffle Mawson and her talented and delightful Mum, picked up the Olympic Torch so to speak and ran with it. You can read about all the events here.

I know Finny would want me to continue. So, get ready for Jim and Bob commentary!

Quill is a bit too young for a lot of events, but since I had already been gathering photos from around the blogosphere I am hoping you are still willing to let me use them. And of course you all can still join in by sending in pics for me to use. You don't have to have a blog either, or really be a cat. Actually the rules are quite loose, and everyone is going to get a medal of participation. You just need to email me your pictures by July 13th at megstories at cox.net

Here are the events:

  • Wrestling - This is a tandem event, or you can be wrestling an object. I'd prefer a series of pictures - in sequence would be great.
  • Hiding - Now this one you only need to have the intent to hide. But some evidence of a cat or animal must be present.
  • Cat Tree Gymnastics - I'd love to get a few shots in a series (they don't have to be taken in sequence).
So get out there and train safely friends!

  9. Oh I am so glad to hear that you are back in the game of olympics. We were kind of sad when someone else kind of took over but they are doing a good job. We will see what we can get together. This will be great fun.

  11. Oh Quill! I didn't realise you had arrived until I saw a mention of the cat olympics on CB then popped across here and saw your adorable photos! Squealy or what! Me and Kizzie were so sad when Fin went. Although we won't forget her, now we are looking forward to visiting you and watch you grow up. Might also enter one of your forthcoming events.

  12. Quill, I think you are TOTALLY qualified for the mischief event(s). If you need any tips, just text me day or night. Meanwhile, I'll get busy with my training.
