Put you paws in the air, mew, mew, mew, mew!
It's time to party like a cat star! Grab a meowgarita and some catnip temptations!
This is our 600th post! We can hardly believe it. Who knew I'd have so much to say!
Mom and I have to tell you that without you sitting in your part of the world reading this, we wouldn't be hitting anything close to 600 posts. Knowing that you're right there, reading this, it makes it all worth it. We hope you'll always want to keep coming back for more.
I was going to mention something else today... what was it? Hm? Oh yeah, we were going to announce our idea for the new book.
About a year ago we had a theme week to celebrate the Olympics and the cathletes among us. Mom had this idea of taking two imaginary announcers (Jim and Bob) and have them narrate pictures of me doing vaguely athletic things. We invited our friends to play along and "Host" events too. Well it was so much fun and we laughed and laughed.
I don't know why we didn't think of it sooner, but why not a Cat-A-Lympics book?
Now here is where I hope some of you will want to play too, even I have to admit that as a senior kitizen I don't do enough to fill a whole book with my athletic prowess, so I'm hoping some of you will be willing to donate pictures that Jim and Bob can narrate. I'm really hoping you'll help, cause otherwise Mom may feel the need to get a kitten and name it Sequel.
We have to get the specifics figured out (required picture sizes, a form that allows us to use your pictures, etc). At this point we're thinking we'll have an open call for pictures for specific events and then we'll add the narration. When we finish one event, we'll move onto the next.
Paws are crossed that you'll all love the idea, and for those of you still on the fence, we might re-post some of the original action so you can get in the mood.
Concatulations ! And we think that's a great idea for a book. We'll try to contribute some pics too.ReplyDelete
Oh, you are in luck! I am VERY athletic and energetic. I'd love to help you out with pictures.ReplyDelete
We will try to contribute to the new book, we thinks it would be FUN. Mew, Mew, Mew paws in the air we are ready to PARTY!!!!ReplyDelete
IF Mommy could ever get them in action Scylla & Socks jump over the baby gate. Scylla would get points taken off because her hind legs always touch the gate and knock it over. Our Senior kitty (Socks) on the other hand clears it with room to spare.
Congrats Fin on having scratched 600 scratching posts... those claws of yours must be pretty darn sharp by now ! Scratching another 600 posts will certainly be a cat-a-lympic challenge...ReplyDelete
That sounds like a swell idea, Fin. There's six of us, enough for a beach volleyball team. We'll get speedo to sponsor the attire, reebok for shoes.... Hmmm...anyone organising Ms Cat-World? purrrr...meow!ReplyDelete
You know you can count on us for all sorts of action!ReplyDelete

Concatulations on the posts!!! I love the idea for the book. Around here I am terrible about laying down when mom wants to take a picture. Makes her miffed sometimes. I laugh at her.ReplyDelete
Concats on 600 posts, Fin! We enjoy visiting and have learned some new ways to cause trouble ;-/ReplyDelete
The Cat-A-Lymics book sounds like a great idea!

Congratulations on your 600th post! Wow!ReplyDelete
We *love* that book idea. Absolutely terrific. Jim and Bob were brilliant!
Congrats on your 600 posts and we have enjoyed every one of them. Well we have read a lot of them. The idea for the book is great. We will start practicing right now. Black is a good climbing kitteh. But we can figure out how to do all kinds of things. Take care Fin and Mom too.ReplyDelete

While we know you are opposed to the kitten thing, we love the idea of naming it Sequel....
Love the book...we will get mom to start paying attention to our athletic selves so we are ready!
Concats on your 600th post!ReplyDelete
That is a great idea for your next book. Can we use any photos from the last CatoLympics? My high jump photo is one of mum's favourites. Now let's partyyyyyyyyy!
Concats on Six HUNDRED posts, Fin! Wowie! That's alot of blogging. We're looking forward to the next six hundred!ReplyDelete
I am definately interested in contributing some pictures!
600! Me has something to aspire to! Yous is the bestest!ReplyDelete
A book on Catalympics would be marvelous! Me can see me now on the uneven bars!
What a great idea Fin - we would love to take part if we are good enough (or mainly if the photographer comes up to your expectations - unlikely we know from her previous attempts!!)ReplyDelete
luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Fin and your mom,ReplyDelete
Congratulations on 600! See? Now that wasn't so bad!
Love your idea for your new book. I think "The Boys" might be up to helping you some. Although, like you, Fin, "The Boys" are a bit senior so haven't done too much athletic for some time to speak of. (Except for Mikey!)
We could go back into our picture book to see if there's something there that might fit your guidelines.
concats on this momentous occasion!ReplyDelete
Congratz on your 600th post, Fin. You always have such great ideas and we love reading your blog.ReplyDelete

I can contribute to this, I think. Being a Cat-A-Lympics, there has to be a Climbing Category. I am a definite climber, with proof!
