Fetching Contest


I'm pretty excited because Samson and Delilah are letting me blog to announce the finalists for the fetching contest!



Daddy has been helping me train fetching soccer balls since I moved in, so I'll definitely be ready for the next Cat-O-Lympics! Deli thinks I have 'potential' but I have news for her...I'll whip her furry butt next time! I'm a natural!




Now to the contenders:

1.) The multi-talented Ellie from Cory Cat Blog

You can look at her fetching entry here

2.) Virgil from The House of Cats is showing off his mad skills here

3.) & 4.) Milo and Alfie from The Cat's Meow have been training for this event since they were kittens. They're so good, we're giving them each their own entry on the poll. Check out their entries here

5.) The totally adorable and talented Merci from Jan's Funny Farm is representing doggies and showing us kitties how it's done here

6.)
Dushi, from Cats in Trees was trying to learn to fetch with treats and he fetched an even better surprise! You can see what I mean here

Deli was a little mad that she was not entered, but her Mommy said that because she was a host of the event, she was just supposed to demonstrate. Next time both her and I will be competing!

We have set up a poll on the sidebar so that you can vote for your favorite. You can vote once per day until February 22nd at 11:59 PM EST. We'll announce the medals next week. Good luck!!

We all want to thank the lovely Fin and her Mom for organizing the Cat-O-Lympics! They always make things so fun.

Sweet Pea
xoxo

We can't vote, we like all the entries! It'll be a tough one to judge and we wish good luck to all. We didn't enter this, our personal assistant somehow missed it. Honestly, what are we paying her for?!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Well, we voted for Virgil, I mean, he does live here. But we think everyone did a great job - we wish we could vote for everyone!

Cory said...

Everyone deserves the gold...but I had to vote for my momma!

Milo and Alfie said...

ALL the entries are fantastic. It's so hard to choose! We think they are ALL winners!

Cats in trees said...

We just had to vote for Milo. We have seen a lot of great fetching and in all honesty we have to say Milo was not the bes. But he was the funniest and naughtiest by far. We laughed so hard at his fetching-movie

What a bunch of really good entries good luck everyone!

Cat with a Garden said...

What an event! We have to check each entry now. Good luck to efurryone!

Eric and Flynn said...

It is hard to choose who to vote for. Everyone is very good but we have made our choice.

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

We can't choose! We think ALL of them deserve the gold!

Cindy said...

Too hard to pick, I choose all!

The Island Cats said...

Wow! They are all so good! We can't decide!!

Mishkat said...

We will be sure to look at all the entries, but we just wanted to say how much we liked the soccer ball video. So cute!

P.S. Tasha says she prefers the pink soccer balls herself (seriously - she will only let the boys play with the other colors!) Please thank the Ball Guy again for sending her those great soccer balls.

P.P.S. By the way, Tasha still won't drink out of the fountain unless Brian stands right there and praises her incessantly. The boys love it, though - I have to fill it three times a day. Thanks again!

We likes all the entries! Fetching is good for the humans!

Sweet Praline said...

I'm too much of a ladycat to fetch anything, but I enjoy watching the other kitties.

Tristan and Crikey said...

You'll be a tough competitor next time, Sweet Pea! We voted in the poll:)

Sweat Pea: Tommy thinks you the cutese little poof ball she's ever seen! I like Deli and Samson let you blog--and LOVE the video of you playing 'soccor' for one! :)

Ooh, this was a tough one. It was hard to go past Milo and Alfie's live action footage.

BeadedTail said...

Sweet Pea, you are a natural with that soccer ball! It's furry nice that you groom before playing too!

As for all the contestants, what a tough competition! We think they all are winners!

Angel and Kirby said...

It was a tough choice, but we voted!

This is hilarious - you are all very talented....all medal contenders!

Gandalf, Grayson, Whitey and Gracie said...

It is a tight competition. We voted, but really, all deserve medals!

meowmeowmans said...

We voted (whew! it was a really tough decision!). Sweet Pea, we can't wait to see you in the next CatOlympics!

The Kitty Krew said...

Those are some wonderful finalists, it's tough judging (no wonder you punted it to the public! MOL). We know you'll make a great entrant next time, Sweet Pea!

Purrs and hugs,
