Cat-O-Lympics - An Upset

Jim: Well Bob it's been an exciting week so far and it's only Wednesday! I wanted to mention the upset that happened here at the Host Nation of Fin-Land yesterday. Seems the "No Rules" rule of Cat-O-Lympics was breached by the judges, causing a mistaken disqualification of Finny in the Balance Beam.

Bob: I understand that our hostess has been award her medal. Let's listen in to her acceptance speech Jim.

Finny: Well a cat, especially a grannycat, should have any route she chooses to get on and off the apparatus. I totally stuck the landing, and the style points were off the charts... I had a dangling back paw for balance and a three paw landing. Plus there are no rules so anything should be allowed. I'm glad this wrong has been righted. We're cats, we rarely follow rules... that's how we stroll.

Bob: Now that's a class act! So Jim, I heard rumors that cats can add new events to the line-up at anytime by using the Mr Linky here, but Jim, that can't be right can it?

Jim: Yes Bob. As I've said before, there are no rules. Events are being created and posted at a breakneck pace. Cats can feel free to take the commemorative award shown on Monday's post for participation.

Bob: Wait Jim! I'm hearing from the booth that we have breaking new footage coming in from the field. 

 

What are we looking at here Jim? I think I'm confused... 

 
Jim: Bob, it seems our Hostess has a different take on the Boxing competition.That's a senior kitizen for you, they know how to work the competition to advantage. It's a tight fit too, but she has done it! Tomorrow she will be competing in an Ice Hockey match. It promises to be quite a competition! Play safe out there competitors!

  1. I'm glad you were vindicated - it was clear you were robbed by the judges the first time around. As for your boxing, your many years of training have done you well!

  3. We are glad that Fin was vindicated! We hope that the judges keep this in mind for future competitors!

    Our mom has come up with a couple new ideas but she isn't sure if she is going to post them - we are already hosting two events and she isn't sure if she can handle any more - so if you know someone who wanted to host but can't think of an idea let us know and they can have them!!

  4. We just make up events as we go...rules too! Cecilia is getting a bit creative tomorrow. I think she believes if she is the only cat in the event of her own creation she can paw off with the gold. Works for me.

    Nice work on boxing Fin! Very non-violent for the kittens who are tuning in.

  5. We are very relieved to hear the judges reversed that awful decision! Cats rule but there are no rules! (or, um, something like that....)

    Hope you'll get to see our Synchronized Snoozing entry today, and our Competitive Napping entry tomorrow! :D

    Purrs and hugs,
    The Kitty Krew

  9. PHEW!!!

    Thank Cod those judges came to their senses! What are they anyway, a bunch of dogs??? I hate how dogs always seem to follow rules.

    I'm a cat and proud of it. Rules, in my opinion, are simply for the dogs.

    Fin, congrats on your victory and here's to many more! Today my Olympian photo event is focusing on curling. Just call me Katie the Curling Cat.
