Charcoalie, here! I do hope you all have been well. I am pleased to hear that many of my brethren have found wonderful homes with other cat bloggers. We do make good pets, don't we?
Well, that *was* an exciting weekend. Mum returned from her business trip to Iowa and the whole family left immediately for central Wisconsin. As you see, Victor found mum's baggage an interesting area for exploration. Um, dear Victor, please don't get yourself shut in there!
Oh, of course, he was merely assuring that Mum's clothing would have the proper amount of cat hair. I see!
Indeed, I was a bit worried for my roommates Bonnie and Victor when the family headed out, but they kept themselves busy and distracted with the Catolympics! I stayed home to keep an eye on the house, but I followed all the events from Idaho on Mum's computer. Such amazing feline atheletes! The comentators did a wonderful job of calling the events and I'm sure the action behind the scenes was exciting, too. It takes a lots of work to put together an event of this magnitude! Bravo.
First of all, the lovely Ms. Bonnie. My dear, touchy tabby got two medals - a bronze in Hairball Hurling and silver in Fitting in Small Boxes (a tie with her good friends Badness and Angelica). The hairball should have been her best event, but in the tension of the moment, Bonnie's usual impressive windup was abbreviated. Bonnie is also an impressive box fitter, of course, and the competition was quite stiff. Or should I say, flexible! Bonnie certainly outdid herself.
Of course, as magnificent as Bonnie was, Victor was stellar! He lived up to his name, earning a medal in each of his three events! I was speechless.
My young tabby friend exceeded expectations for a feline his age, taking bronze in tub soccer, silver in curling, and gold in balance beam (tie with the talented Edsel). Amazing performance from the daring young cat on the railing. The same tail that lended him balance for the gold, gave the fateful twitch during a remarkable curl.
I understand the party after the competition was a bit subdued as the participants were , well, exhausted. Victor and Bonnie joined the napathon and a lovely brunch, then returned home in plenty of time to see our family return. Good show all around! Congratulations to all the particpants and winners!
