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!
