The Return of the Olympians

Hallo again, Effurryone!

Well, we had a great time in Rio, at the Cat Olympics, but it's good to be back. There's no place like Home, after all.

And, of course, it's high time We updated you on Our Success. 

So, here goes.

First of all, despite furry stiff competition, Our Team walked off with the Gold Medal in the Synchronised Sleeping event. An extra special round of appaws goes to Trixie, who not only captained the Team, but was also Head Coach.

Trixie also took part in two other events. In the Counter-to-Cupboard Combined High Jump/Long Jump, her eye infection affected her co-ordination and she narrowly lost out in the battle for furrst place and was forced to make do with the Silver Medal. However, she more than made up for that with a stunning win in the Ladycats Smackypaws Boxing CATegory, earning a well-deserved Gold Medal.

Caspurr defeated a Purr-sian cat who refused to shake paws with him after the contest, to take Gold in the Bunny Kick-Boxing event. The defeated Silver Medallist afterwards apawlogised, privately, explaining that his Humans had warned him that he was on no account to speak to Israeli cats, on pain of being deprived of all treats till the next Cat Olympics! Under the circumstances, Caspurr furr-gave him, of course. But what horrible Peeps that kitty must have! Can you imagine how much nicer the World would be, if We Felines were in charge?

Finally, on the last day of competitions, Shimshi led Our National Team to victory in the Pawball Finals, thereby earning his second Gold Medal.

Appaws, appaws to all of Our Olympians (even though Trixie was the only one willing to pose for a picture with one of her medals).

And appaws, appaws to all those who competed, whether they took home medals or not.

You are all Champions!

I LOVE this! What champions they are! I am mad at mommy that she did not know the Pawlympics were even going on until it was too late tp enter! I wonder if there was a hairball division. I KNOW I would have won! GOLD! And if there had been a snoring come another Gold for me...had I only know. And shedding? If there was a Pawlympics for shedding...NO one could have bested me there.

Concats;nations to you catheletes!

Brilliant!!! ConCATulations to the J-Cat team from Israel! You showed the whole world you are truly champions and showed the Olympic spirit. The Staff put me forward for the individual whining event, but when it came to the final, me and the cathlete from Tuvalu catapulted when we should have catawauled and consequently were disqualified! We drowned our sorrows in a couple of cat nip bevvies, so international relations did not suffer!!

PeeEss Tigger would give Miss Katie some competition in the snoring event! I can vouch for that! :-)

PeePeeEss They wouldn't let me enter the Ladycat Smackypaws event for some reason? ;-)

Katie Isabella said...

I would have entered the Ladycat Smackiepaws event too! I'm really mad at mommy now!!!!

Kate said...

Well done! I did not tell my cats about the Smackypaws competition. It's better that way.

COngratulations! Great job at the pawlympics. How did we miss the smackty paws? Phowbe and Prancie would have made for tough competition. I think you all deserve a gold medal for cuteness.
