Cat-O-Lympics



I was totally shocked that Samson and Mommy 'bowed out' of The Cat-O-Lympics this year because we don't have access to all of our pictures and videos. I have been training for years for this and I definitely do not want to let down our gracious host, Fin! I am officially withdrawing Samson and Mommy's withdrawal AND, not only will I be competing in an event, we are going to be hosting an event, too!




First, to our event. Because the games are open to all species, I thought it would be great fun to add the event Fetching. Since fetching is more often a dog event, this will give our doggy friends more of an incentive to participate. Of course if you're a cat who fetches, you're welcome to compete also. In case you've never fetched and want to try, here's a video of me actually doing it. Doggies, pay attention - you may learn something!





To participate in our event, you will need to follow these directions:

1. Post a picture or video on your blog and let me know you did it by posting a comment here or on our blog.

2. Provide your blog address so I know where to go to judge your fetching.

3. Sit back and wait for the results!



Now, I'll show you my entry for the High Jump event hosted by Cats in Maryland.

They did not mention in their rules if videos are allowed as an entry, so I'm not even sure yet if this is a legal entry, but here I am peforming my high jump:






My jump would have been a lot cleaner if the shelf hadn't been full of so much junk! If you had the sound on, you may have noticed that I made a little sound like a karate or tennis player before I jumped. This 'grunt' is how I release my natural adrenaline so that I've got a jolt of extra power.

Wish me luck in my competition!

Let the games begin!

I think you're going to have a clean sweep of these events, Delilah!

We were a little sad not to see our tortie Tuesday Delilah photos, but this more than makes up for it!!! A Delilah VIDEO!!! *happy purrs*

Eric and Flynn said...

You are a very good high jumper. You don't let anything get in your way do you.
Eric used to catch and fetch when he was younger but we don't know if we have any photos or videos. Mum will be looking through all our old stuff today or tomorrow.

Niko and Cloud said...

yep, that entry was totally legal and totally impressive!!!

Tommy and I do play fetch--yet she's never gotten me on film. Drat my human!! Good luck to all who participate...!

PS. I coulda been a contender!

The Kitty Krew said...

Excellent example of the fetch event, we don't think we have anything that would work for that but we'll take a look!

And we do like your entry for the high jump, sure to be a winner, we think! Most of our jumps that have been caught for posterity are down rather than up so we probably won't be able to enter that one either. :(

Yay, we're glad you were able to play!

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Perfect!!!

SuziQCat said...

Very nice on both entries! I give you a perfect 10!!

Cory said...

Yay Delilah! So glad you are competing! I'm thinking it would be nice if there were a decat-alon event since my momma Ellie is great at fetching little soccer balls...and she does so many other events too! Here is a link to my momma fetching:

Busby and Raymond said...

Wow! Those both look like winning entries to us!

Angel and Kirby said...

That is a neat event. We can't play, but we don't fetch! You are very good at the high jump!

Sammy and Andy said...

We are cheering for you, Deli!!!!!!! As you know, we all think you are the "cat's meow". We're not planning to participate either......someone has to be the spectators....:) xxxxxxxxxxxx

T said...

So cute! Loved it! I will be back. Happy to have discovered your blog!

BeadedTail said...

You are a pawsome high jumper Deli but I am not quite so good at that. I do fetch though! I don't know if Mommy has any photos or videos of me fetching but I'll see what I can find. Hope you have a Happy Tortie Tuesday!

Oh my gosh, fetching is the PERFECT event for our Virgil - he LOVES to fetch - I will have to find some good pics of that (I really need to get the video camera charged up soon!). I know I have some of him bringing the ball back, so hopefully those will work!

And it stinks that your pic and videos are stuck on another computer - I STILL can't get to my Virgil baby pictures and it makes me crazy! At least hopefully yours will be fixed soon (mine, on the otherhand, it is always "we'll get to it" - for a year+ at this point!)

The Island Cats said...

You do a great high jump, Delilah!! That is definitely medal worthy!!

We don't fetch though...but maybe we'll try to come up with something...

Anonymous said...

Deli...we have an incling you're going to put a LOT of woofies to shame with your fetching skills! And kudos on your highjump!

Cat Street Boyz said...

My my my Delilah, you are quite the athlete! Gold medal stuff!!(=^Y^=)

Those videos are amazing, Deli! You really do fetch! And was that Mr. Potato Head up there on the top shelf? We could have sworn that we saw him up there...

Cats in trees said...

Your jumping style is perfect. Getting up high places and creating chaos at the same time. Few cats can improve on that.

loki said...

OMG, Dalilah, you're amazing, I cannot jump that high! If I was a judge I would give a perfect 10.

Fin said...

Jim: Holy Cod Bob look at the mad skills of that Tortie! Bob? Bob?! It seems he is speechless. Video too! It's an "Olympic Moment!"

meowmeowmans said...

Amazing performances! You are the frint runner for the medal stand!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, thank you. We needed a category for Merci and just found this one a little while ago, so Merci gets to participate in her own game. We'll be posting it Saturday. Hope we don't forget to let you know when we do. :-)

Jan's Funny Farm said...
