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!
