Training Day Repost

Jim: Well Bob, we're back, after an extended hiatus after Cat-A-Lympics.

Bob: I was relaxing on the beach... Do you know why we're here Jim?

Jim: Seems our hostess Fin of Finland has called us out to take a look at some new moves she's working on.

Bob: Wow Jim, how exciting! Do you know what she's been working on Jim?

Jim: No Bob she's kept it tightly under wraps. Grannycats keep these things tight to the fur you know. It's the  mark of a true professional. Oh Bob, we're being asked to keep it down. Fin looks serious.

Bob: I don't understand Jim, we've seen these moves before. Beside the fountain, looking in and looking out from inside it, all classics. Can there really be something new here Jim?

Jim: Oh. Well Bob this seems new. Excellent form using the tail for balance and stability. HOLY COD Bob look at that!

Bob: She is going for a balance beam routine Jim! Look at that form! Surely she can't maintain that kind of effort for long...

Jim: Mother Fluff Bob! She appears to be going for a "Ring-Around-The-Rosie" maneuver! And look Bob there's scummy water in the bowl! One misstep and our granny could be in the pool!

Bob: She's halfway around the base Jim! She looks like she can take it ALL THE WAY! OH NO!!!

Jim: What an upset Bob. It appears she had a mid-point dismount. She looks shaken Bob. It's a good thing it's just training. Best of luck Finny, we know you will pull it off by the next games.


  1. We give it two paws up! We thinks you landed the dismount purrfectly. Go Team Fin! xoxo

  2. Bravo, bravo!! Not sure how the other cats can possibly be up to the competition, Finny.

  3. That is not a move for amateurs, that's for sure!

  4. What great balance! That's going to be hard to match.

  5. What a tragedy that would have been if that was the championships! She needs to get her act together that one!!! I hope she can cut it!

  6. Even though it was a mid point dismount, it was still perfectly executed.

  7. We are very proud of you Fin for going half way around that tight rope. Hope all of you have a great Sunday. Take care.

  8. 10 out of 10 from us! fully paws up... ha ha ha . Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

    I'm 100% backing you Fin, your style and courage are unbeatable.
    And sheer beauty must influence judges to some extent, and that yours hands down. Paws up to a veritable pro!!

  10. Oh how could Bob and Jim get it so wrong?? That was a fantastic display of the Half Round Dismount! Can't they tell she's practicing the end of her new routine? I give it a 10!

  11. Maxwell: *holds up sign* 5.6

    FaRADaY: 9.5 for the first half which would be uhhh...*divide by 2* MOMMY HELP, I not good wif math!

    Allie: Oh she's a TOTAL TEN for Style alone!

  12. Amazing feats of balance and agility, Fin! 10. 10. 10!
