Cat-O-Lympics


I interrupt my normal programming of "Floofy Friday" to show you my entries in two of the events of the Cat-O-Lympics.  The Cats in Maryland are hosting the "High Jump Competition."  Everyone knows that we Persian/Himmies have short little legs and we are not known for jumping.  However, the picture below that was submitted for the competition, shows my great form in jumping out of a box.  Such grace, such beauty, such height for a ladycat Persian.  I think I have the artistic category in the bag, I mean, the box!  MOL


I know we can't submit any Photoshopped pictures, but I had to share the picture that Mom Kim of AnnaZu did with this picture.  See, I can even compete with the horses!


My friend, Huffle, is hosting the "Competitive Napping" competition.  Mom says there are so many pictures of me napping, but we went way back to my Baby Praline (Pralinette) days to submit our favorite napping picture.  This take some great athletic ability to be able to sleep upside down with a half twist on the back of the couch!


And, if you want a picture of a full grown ladycat napping in her favorite position, it's included below.  Notice the sunbeams hitting the floofy belly just right!



What do you think?  Do I have a chance of winning the gold?

Those are the best entries I have seen. We especially like the jump out of the box. That is a super picture. And the picture of Praline jumping with the horse is my Mom's favorite of all times. She used to teach people to do that jumping in horse shows. And the nap is just unreal. All gold medals. Thanks for a wonderful smile this morning.

You show great style in the high jump, and your napping is so good that you must be way up there on the leaderboard.

You just may be the greatest catholete of all time Praline! Especially those high jumps!

Cindy said...

I think you'll win in all categories, especially the jumping. I, Rosie the Persian, know for a fact how hard it is to jump, so I'll give you the gold on that one.
