    The 2014 Winter Cat-Olympics

    http://petoftheday.com/talk/showthre...ht=catolympics

    I saw a promotion on TV for the Winter Olympics in Russia, which got me thinking that it must be almost Cat Olympics time again

    Some Of The Events Scheduled Are

    Cold Weather Cat Piling.
    Synchronized Sleeping.
    Kitchen Floor/milk Ring Hockey
    Tile Floor Speed Skating (team And Individual Events) And
    Lap Curling.


    The Events Are Open To All Cat-estants And All Nationalities.

    Please Prepare Your Kids To Enter!


    Thank You,

    2014 Cat-olympic Organizing Committee.

    Cassie would like to try a new event this year. She is getting very good at Dining Room / Kitchen Floor Hockey ... when she eats the last little bit of wet food from her dish, she seems to push at it () and I sometimes find it a few tile-widths away from where I put it down for her. If that doesn't work out, she is skilled at Taking Naps in Hidey Spots.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    I'd like to suggest an additional event: feather wand rhythmic gymnastics.

    How about the Long Stretch - I think Patch might be able to compete in that one!

    Oh damn, I didn't get pictures of this new event, but anyway, it would have had to be a video. Lucy, I looked after for three weeks loves to be pulled around on the floor, sitting inside a box - the faster, the better. She's a champion! I may ask her family if they have any videos of this, then I will submit them. I may even bring my camera when I go visit, so perhaps she will perform.

    Kimba wants to enter the 5 yd. hallway dash. He could get the Gold in that one. Mac thinks speed eating would be right up his alley. The synchronized sleeping event is something they are both thinking about.

    Absolutely! Also catnip-mousie (or other toy) pouncing / fetching.

    Spook and Isis have been hard at work practicing the team floor hockey event. They act like prima donnas but secretly, they work very well as a team. Don't let them know who squealed to PT...

    Patch would like to compete in the long stretch, and wants to know if there will be a competition for creative corpse hiding and ill timed lap claiming?

    Creative corpse hiding? Patch, what are you hiding?! I saw a photo of you in your daddy's closet, and I think you should be on Cassie's team for the Resting in hidey Spots event!

    Mac has been in heavy training for the Drinking Out of the Toilet event. I'm pretty sure he could bring home the gold in this one!

    He's an excellent mouser, but he gets vexed when we remove the bodies. He's taken to hiding them in out-of-the-way places, like under furniture.
