Opening Ceremonies - Cat-O-Lympics

Jim: Well Bob it's finally arrived, Cat-O-Lympics. We even have a commemorative header made by Zoolatry! Can't you smell the excitement in the air Bob?

Bob: Oh, I, uh, thought that was tuna Jim. Either way the excitement has been building here at the Host Nation of Fin-Land for weeks now.We have some exciting events planned here at the H.C. Ice Hockey, Balance Beam, Eating, and course Fin will be taking part in Napping events, and maybe even showing off some Bunny-Kicking in a exhibition sport.

Jim: Before we discuss the events Bob, I think we need to clear up any questions about the games. First the name Cat-O-Lympics is a bit of a misnomer, as any species can play.

Bob: What Jim? Any species? Dogs and Cats competing together? It's a world gone mad.

Jim: Yes Bob, it's a unique feature of these games, but you know cats are fierce competitors and they welcome all comers. Another difference in these games is that any participant can take away one of these medals designed by none other than Katie's Human Glogirly.

 

Bob: That's some award Jim! But that's not all, I understand that some cats are organizing their own events and competitors can even win other awards, is that right?

Jim: That's right. Hopeful competitors should contact these cats or check out their blogs if they want to participate in these exciting events, Huffle Mawson will be hosting Competitive Napping and The Island Cats will have Synchronized Snoozing. 

Bob: I know those almost sound alike friends, but synchronized napping is a team sport. Milo and Alfie will be holding Bare Paw Fighting through the week and Sparkle the Designer Cat will have a Boxing competition on Thursday the 18th. For the tidy cats out there One Cat's Nip will be hosting the Mile Long Kleening Machine this week. 

Jim: Talk about an Exhibition Sport Bob! But nothing is more exhibitionist than Sumac Stories hosting Outdoor Water Sports (or Snow Peeing) on Wednesday. There's also an event for the non-exhibitionist too, Jennifer Lorton will be hosting a Hiding event. 

Bob: Cats In Maryland will be holding a High Jump Event, Mr Tuck will be hosting Late Night Human Wake Up, and Amy and the House of Cats will host Extreme Climbing on the 17th and at her Naughty Kitty Club they will be hosting a StrongCat Competition on the 16th. 

Jim: The Furry Bambinos will be hosting a Squirrel and Bird Watching event on Thursday.

Bob: I've heard that competitors can even make up their own events on the fly and just link the event here as they think of things, but surely that's a rumor Jim!

Jim: No Bob, that's totally true. We are hoping the staff of our host nation has figured out how to Mr Linky and that it continues to show up each day... or they can just come back to this post each day they compete.  In fact they don't even have to link here... there are no rules! That's right! No Rules! 

Bob: You mean they can even use old posts and just slap a Cat-O-Lympic spin on the thing and that counts?

Jim: Yes Bob! Like I said no rules! Just a celebration of the Cathlete. Let the games begin Bob!

This is so Cool, we are a little frazzled now as the Mom has a cold and Socks is off romancing MoMo so we will be spectators for now; but we thinks there are a few events we would be pawsome at and will try to pawticipate in. NO RULES works for us pawsomly. ~AFSS

Wow, awesome events! We'll have to persuade our human to let us participate! Annie is excessively good at snarling and hissing, world-class, in fact, and there must be a competition for her!

Glogirly and Katie said...

Hi Fin!
I'm having my own Cat-O-Lympics event while Glogirly is off freezing her butt in Florida! I'm calling it my "HOW-DID-KATIE-DO-THAT!" photo event.

I've given explicit instructions to GG on what to post and when to post it. Here's hoping she doesn't screw it up!

Thanks for coming up with such a great event to host for us all!

mew!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We've seen the notices on the CB and just read the Island Cats post on Synchronized Snoozing and decided to participate. Now we see all these great categories. What a great organizer you guys are! It looks like fun.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

We will be posting in the Mr. Linky tomorrow - our events will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday we will be holding the StrongCat competition over at the Naughty Kitty Club (who can knock down the heaviest object) for anyone who would like to enter, and Wednesday will be Extreme Climbing (who can climg to the highest location) at the House of Cats!

Angel and Kirby said...

We are going to join as many events as Mom will let us!

"The Boys" and Karen said...

We've got the notice up at our blog about the Cat-O-Lympics but we weren't sure what to do next.

Since there are four of us, we've got several things we can do. However, getting us on the same thought process might be a challenge.

At any rate, we think this is a fantastic idea.

Cliff and Olivia said...

Great Opening Ceremonies!

We're looking forward to participating :-)

Eric and Flynn said...

We are very excited and will take part in as many events as we can.

Sammy said...

Will there be she-cats against she-cats and tom-cats against tom-cats, or inter-gender mixing?

Sammy said...

When does it begin? When do all the events begin and stuff?

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Thank you for being such a purrrrrfect organizer with no rules....it is all downhill at my place today!!! Hope I win the gold!!

The Kitty Krew said...

Such wonderful Opening Ceremonies! We're very excited about all the Cat-O-Lympics events and can't wait to see what we'll be able to participate in!

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Cats in trees said...

We are in Olympic spirits, especially since our hero Sven Kramer has won (his first?) gold. We want that too! So we'll start by competing in Huffle's Competitive Napping. Because, as the great Dutch champion Joop Zoetemelk said about the worlds greatest bikerace: "You win the Tour de France in bed".

Cheyenne -Millie said...

I can't find anywhere when the last date is to enter the Olympics on any ones site. But I did find that Monday the medals will be handed out so I would guess it is over.
