Bob: That's right Jim. This event is going to take skill and agility. Let's take a look closer look at the course.
Jim: Let me walk our viewer's through the action we've come to expect here at the Balance Beam. The Cathlete is going to jump on the edge of the tub from the far right, it's critical she sticks the landing. Then she'll need to walk across the narrow ledge to the counter on the left, at that point there will be a quick but difficult jump from the narrow ledge to the counter. The prize will be a cool sip of water right from the tap.
Bob: What's that on the floor Jim? Is that some kind of... water feature?
Jim: Yes Bob, it's a bowl filled with water. It makes this course extremely challenging! Oh look Bob, here comes our competitor... ::a hush falls over the audience as the cathlete surveys the field::
Jim: Whispering:: Look at that tail switch Bob, she is focused! Looks like she's inspecting the apparatus up close and personal, getting a feel for the conditions. This is a slick course...
Bob: She seems very focused on the left side of the course. She.... Oh My COD!
Bob: Is it over Jim?! Will this be a disqualification?
Jim: We'll have to wait for the call Bob. It's such a shame, because if you look at the style points, look at the dangling paw, she could be in the running for gold! She seems to be awaiting her award on the podium.
Bob: I hear from the judges that she has been disqualified for that maneuver! What an upset!
We think Fin had excellent form! Who cares about rules?ReplyDelete
A super cathlete in our eyes! What do those judges know?ReplyDelete
The Florida Furkids
And why did Fin have to follow the rules anyway? Rules are for humans, not cats.ReplyDelete
Oh foul! Someone must have paid off that judge! Or else they are afraid of her skills and want the competitor from their own country to win! Foul! Official Protest!ReplyDelete
WE DEMAND A RECOUNT!ReplyDelete
But cathletes are supposed to do the unexpected!ReplyDelete
It all stinks to me! A set up. we demand a action replay in slow motion so we can determine what exactly happened!!ReplyDelete
We remember this one, it was brilliant, absolutely brilliant. Kudos to a very talented writer mom!ReplyDelete
those judges must have been bought off by the competition!!! We give you the gold!ReplyDelete
Fin we know no cat can beat you on effort as you enter every event. We know you will be crowned Olympic Champiion.ReplyDelete
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
I agree, something doesn't smell right!ReplyDelete
We think those judges were fixed. That kitty didn't do anything wrong. She was just mounting onto the beam. So she took a little detour. Who cares. Love it Meg. Glad you are doing this again. Take care.ReplyDelete
OMG this was just FABULOUS! I could literally hear what the commentators sounded like! I think they scored incorrectly though, that move looked like a 10 to me!ReplyDelete
We bet the judges are just jealous of your skillfulness. We'll give you the gold, Fin!ReplyDelete
We comes by to sees how Fin is doing. We loveded your Cat-A-Lympics. awesome posts!ReplyDelete
We gives Fin a 10 for style, a 10 for difficulty and a 10 for artistry!
We loves you Fin.
Fin we give you 10 paws!ReplyDelete
