Cat-O-Lympics - Ice Hockey

Bob: Well Jim what's in the action line-up today in Fin-Land?

Jim: We have an Ice Hockey event with none other than our Hostess Fin. She has agreed to come out of retirement for this event, believing that Hockey is a young cat event. Joining her on the ice is Cory Cat the young cat in question!

Bob: It's true Jim, Cory has youth and speed on her side, and she trains in the off-season with asparagus. While Fin has years of experience and those snowshoe paws with toe fur! It promises to be quite a match, let's get right to the action Bob!

 

Bob: Look at that steely determination on the face of Finny. She's ready to play! But here's the competitor. She looks a little timid Jim, as she looks at the cube... cuteness is only going to go so far here.

Jim: Wait a minute Bob! It looks to me like that may be domestic ice...

 Bob: Cory's coaches are inspecting the ice, and it looks like they are clearing their player to go forward... but Jim look at Fin...

Jim: Our hostess seems very displeased with this turn of events. She likes the foreign ice from the market. Oh My COD Bob, it looks like she is refusing to play! She is laying down and refusing to participate!

Fin: What kind of shame is this?! Domestic Ice! I'm not a kitten! I came out of retirement for this! I'm Outta here!

Jim: This is a complete debacle Bob! Wait, our guest competitor is still ready to play! What a scandal!

 

Cory: I just really wanted to show my skills. I'm so disappointed. I usually play hockey with vegetables or fruit from the garden, maybe Fin will come back out of retirement for Cherry Hockey?

  2. Ohhh, we were looking forward to the ice hockey competition! But we fully understand your reasoning for withdrawing. A grannycat has to have her standards.

    We're participating in *4* events tomorrow, including your Balance Beam event, so be sure and come by! :) (We know you always do when you can!)

    Purrs and hugs,
    The Kitty Krew

  5. Ice hockey is a tough sport. HIghly competitive, often verging on violent! You are all extremely brave to attempt this without protective padding! Certainly gold medal worthy!

  6. Fin, at your age you have a right to be picky!

    My boxing match with La Gata Loca will go live at 9 AM ET Thursday - my human will be up early to do a vet transport for a local rescue, and she will try to remember to put the linky up before she leaves.

  10. I have had so many entries in the competitive napping event that I haven't even had a chance to enter anything myself! Lucky I've been coming here to see the excitement.

  13. Nice going Fin, at least you gave it a try. We are going to have to try the ice hockey here. That looks like great fun. And that is a very clever post by the way.

  14. We agree. Only the best ice is good enough for Fin. The lesser gods may do as they please.

  15. Good going Fin! We knew you wouldn't lower your standards to use the wrong ice.

  16. Oh, what a disappointment! Bring in some proper ice and let Fin have another go! We want a good match!

    BTW, our human is extremely impressed by the creativity and writing here. Kudos!

  18. Scylla is doing extreme climbing today.

    We hopes you don't mind but we thought the Cat Olympics might need some advertisers, so we have an ad for Clean + Green in our post. Don't forget to vote for your favourite entry in our Clean + Green Contest.

  20. We have been enjoying watching the cat-o-lympics as well as participating in them. This was a fun idea. And tomorrow we're going to enter the Late Night Human Wakeup category.

  24. We love these Cat-O-Lympics posts. Fun and very creative!

    Sorry it was the wrong kind of ice, Fin. We were looking forward to seeing you in action :-)

  25. Fin we think you were totally right to sit this out - we understand that Cory wanted to show her skills, but we think you deserve the better ice. Hopefully Cory will get the chance to play again during the games - maybe she can find another young competitor who is ok with domestic ice. There are a lot of cats out there who are eager to show their skills!

  26. Of course you should only come out of retirement if all your conditions are met, Fin!

  27. What a shocking end to what was billed as a historic match! No one saw this coming!

  28. Fenris was worried some critters might need rescuing so he has organized a doggie patrol after reading about the dogs in Vancouver. ~AFSS
