Chewing Our Nails

The Island Cats were going to announce the winners of the Synchronized Snoozing competition in the Cat-o-lympics but the judges got to wrestling over all the great entries and thus they had to wait for a special judge, The Island Cat Guy, to help break the deadlock. As we type this on Monday evening, we are pleased to note that Buddy and Sam have made the cut and are among the 12 finalists.

Synchronized Snoozers Buddy & Sam

Will the only woofies included prevail among all that cat talent? Hard to predict. There are some pawsome entries. We'll find out tomorrow -- oh, that would be today, since this won't post until early Tuesday. . You can view them all here.

The Monkeys are taking a poll on the Fetching Contest. If they award the winners from the poll results at this moment, Milo is in the lead with his brother Alfie right behind him. Our Merci is tied for 3rd place with Ellie. Will Merci pull ahead or drop behind before the poll closes tonight -- Monday -- at midnight EST?

Moving quickly, Merci runs with the stick.

We are each entered in one event, but we don't have any updates on any of the events we kitties entered. We're all chewing our nails in excitement..

We do have an update on our water situation. If you remember, we didn't have any water from last Wednesday evening until after 2 pm Thursday. And then we were under a boil water advisory. Jan boiled pots of water and then had to cool them so we were constantly short of drinking water. It wasn't until mid-morning Monday she heard on the radio the advisory was lifted -- about 1 pm SUNDAY! A furry could die of thirst with the lack of news in the county over the weekend. We finally have big bowls of water so we can drink all we want. What a relief. We have two bottomless jugs here, named Buddy and Sam ... so if one of them got to the bowl first ...


  1. Glad to hear the water situation is better. We are on a well here which we are very thankful for as the city folk are always having boil water notices.

    Good luck with the contest. We think all of you are winners. ~AFSS

  19. Hai!
    Glad your water is all better. WE don't know what we'd do if dat happened heer.
    We do haz a well, but da beans only uses it to water da yard. Dey say dey would NOT drink dat water--is too many min-er-alls, and da taste is nasty.
    One summer, da beans used da well water to fill up da pool. Iz a BIG pool if you are a kitty, but not so much for da beans. Iz about 10 feets across and 3 feets deep. Dey take it apart an puts it in da garden shed at da end of summer.
    ANYway....when dey added da pool kemickalls to da well water, da water turned da color of orange sody-pop!

    We hopes you no haz dat problem agin.

  20. Congrats on your well-deserved medal!!! We just read the recap over at Island Cats. ....very stiff competition!
