Cat-O-Lympics - Double Events

Bob: Well Jim it's been quite a week so far, but I understand our hostess has been "going nocturnal" to enter our first event of the day.

Jim: That's right Bob, Finny has pulled out all the stops to win in Mr Tuck's Late Night Human Wake Up Event. Fin's expertise in this event is really going to pay off.

Bob: Jim, let's get right to the video!

Jim: Um, Bob, we don't have any video... seems our host nation of Fin-Land didn't shell out for the Night Vision. We weren't "allowed in the room" for the live play by play, as it might have altered the outcome. Only the cat can be the waker-upper in order to medal in this classic event.

Bob: We're told by "The Mom" that the competitor began the event at 12:30am! Now that's taking it to the Mat-tress Jim!

Jim: The Mom fought back with a classic Ignoring You Fake Out, but Fin is a champion and she began an aria of meows that no human could ignore. The Mom struck back with a "Shut it Little Cat!" yell, but again Fin struck back.

Bob: I understand she brought out the big guns, and knocked over a glass of water on the nightstand right into the pillow!

Jim: That's right Bob, and it was OVER! Our champion was rewarded with a late night snack. Speaking of snacks let's get right into our second event, Competitive Eating.

 
Bob: She goes right in for the win! Look at that determination! That Chick-Hen doesn't stand a chance! She may need to change position to get those last bites.... NO!! She does it!!

Jim: Wait Bob! There seems there's a doping scandal! One of the other teams has photo evidence of performance enhancing additives!! What an upset!!


Bob: Oh My COD! I'm shocked! But wait, Fin looks truly shocked too!

Finny: I had no idea they were adding anything to my food! Mom says it's a phosphate binder so my kidney's stay well! What a shock! I never tasted anything!

Jim: Well the judges have decided to allow this Bob, citing health reasons. So there will be no disqualifications for the grannycat!

NOOOOOOOO! Not a doping scandal!!! This is sounding like the Tour de France all over again. I sure hope the cat sitter hasn't been slipping ME anything while my girl is away. Finny... it's not your fault. I think you should fight this with everything you have.

To be safe, I'm going to check my kibble right now. I'm pretty hungry after the half pipe today. Did I tell you that Shaun White is going to dedicate his snowboarding gold to me!

mew!

awwww Competitive eating sounds fun. My kitty shadow has not realized that we have been adding a supplement to his food to keep him healthy. He is fast eater and has a good chance to medal in the game. But his doping issue is controversial.

One Cats Nip said...

mmm yes i prefer seafood but that stinky goodness stands no chance! Maybe I'll enter this one too....if mom can be quick enough with the camera im like flash gordon!

Jacqueline said...

You are a champion at everything, Fin!!...We have been constantly impressed with your athletic prowess and fine form throughout the competition=you are a special and talented girl!!...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

MoMo said...

Waaaaaaiiiiiilllllllll!!!! That SS of mine is not being cooperative and help me with Cat-O-lympics. What to do? Shall I sack her and come to live with you?

Misha said...

We had a nip-doping scandal at our place, but Cosmo only has herself to blame for that one.

Kea said...

Superb entries in both competitions! Fin, you are a true seasoned professional when it comes to Late Night Wake-Ups. Wow.

As for the so-called "doping" scandal, well, we're glad the judges saw fit to reverse their disqualification! It was a ridiculous charge anyway--it's only health supplements after all. Really. We believe you. Truly!

Marg said...

Well we want Finny to stay healthy so I think this medicine should be allowed. Good job at that eating Fin. We might have to see if our staff can get a good picture of us chowing down. Hope you win Fin.

Sweet Praline said...

A doping scandal???? Oh no!

I must admit, I have additives in my stinky goodness, too.

Brian said...

Oh well, no matter what Fin you are our olympic hero!!!

Cats in trees said...

Great work on the late night wake up. The glass of water was a perfect move.

Alasandra said...

Beans are very sneaky about putting stuff in your food. You has to watch them like hawks. ~AFSS

The Island Cats said...

Well, you can't be to blame for them adding something to your food if you didn't know about it, Fin! If you lose the medal for this, your beans are the ones that should pay!!!

Cory said...

Oh no! Doping? That's so not fair...you didn't add it so it definitely doesn't count.

As for late night human wake up, my momma Ellie is again the multi-sport champ...she uses licking at her technique. No one stands a chance. Trouble is, there are no pictures to prove it.

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Fin you have champion form in everything you do!
We have only been spectators at these Olympics but they have all been spectacular events. All the kitties participating are so skilled at what they do!

The Crew said...

Fin, I'm proud of you using the old "tip the water" move. Great work!!

At almost 13 I have signs of early kidney disease, so my Mom would like to know what that food adder is and where to get it.

Danielle said...

Uh oh! Not the doping scandle again! I think you used very gutsy technique with the Human Wake up, but that techique is a winner! PS I have an entry for your balence beam competition at my blog.

*PURR*

Sparkle said...

Wow, it's a good thing I'm not entered in this event - since the supplement my human puts in my food is digestive enzymes, that probably WOULD qualify for a doping scandal!

Good late-night wake-up job, Fin! The water glass was the piece de resistance!

Eric and Flynn said...

Wow! Not the glass of water! That was an inspired move worthy of a gold medal.

Rusty said...

Fin, don't feel bad. My Mom's always lacing my food with Benefiber and Petromalt. She says it makes me poo better. Well, I have to say, being constipated is no fun, and so I eat all my food, even with the additives in it. It doesn't make me any less of a champion. When you get older, you just gotta do what you gotta do.

"The Boys" and Karen said...

You can tell she's really in it to win, too. You go girl!

CCL Wendy said...

Hooray for Fin for succeeding all around! Not only did she get a late night snack, but she ate stuff that was good for her, as well! Sounds like a win-win to me!

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Oh...Tumil K? That's ok...it's not banned! Especially for grannie cats!

Tristan and Crikey said...

Hee Hee! Tristan has no idea that she takes pills in her wet food every morning:) It sucks to get old!

Noir the Texas Tabby said...

Fin--DOPING??? Is that allowed? I do think your posture for the food was exquisite!! The look of shock--outstanding! Give Fin the GOLD, Bob!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Late Night Wake-Ups. We thinks that is our job here! I likes to meow at midnight!

Tuck said...

Wow, that is an impressive entry in the late-night human wake-up event. It's the first time we have seen the water technique used...

Cliff and Olivia said...

We didn't know about the late night event. We have some good moves...

We vote: Not doping.
