Gold and Bronze

Tuesday was a very busy day for us as we all attended the awarding of the medals for three separate events of the Cat-o-lympics. It was a race to be there on time for our nervous siblings and our friends in the competitions which were held at different locations.

The results from the Naughty Kitty Club's Strong Cat Competition of the Cat-o-lympics was a lot of fun for Cyndi to participate in. And she got a gold medal for it. Now before you think we're bragging on our Cyndi, the judges made an announcement: "Because of the joy you all brought to the judges, they decided unanimously - everyone gets a gold!"

So to all the competitors in the Strong Cat category -- including our lovely and super strong Cyndi -- congratulations on your gold medal! You can view all the contestants at the Naughty Kitty Club.

Our Cotton took a Gold Medal in the Extreme Climbing, Indoor Competition at Amy & the House of Cats.. As with Cyndi's competition, "Because everyone did such a great job, and it was so tough to make a decision, the judges have deemed that all entrants deserve a gold medal!" We think all the indoor and outdoor entries were fun too. Congratulations to all of you. Pawsome climbing performances.

This is Cotton's entry. She's on top of the fridge where our oldest resident reigns. (Cotton, we think either you needed to be shorter or Jan needed to be taller to take your photo with you head in it.You have a pretty face.)

The Island Guy broke the fight between the judges at The Island Cats over the Synchronized Snoozing event.. This is what the judges said about Buddy & Sam's entry: "Buddy & Sam from the country of Jan’s Funny Farm! Excellent use of the frontward mirror technique, Buddy & Sam! Your tail placement was darn near purrfect!! Pretty good for woofies!!"

Buddy & Sam, trying to look humble: Aw, thanks for the kind words. We enjoyed competing at something we both do so well.

And for this, our largest and noisiest residents won a Bronze Medal. If there are any teeth marks showing, it's because Sam and Buddy both assumed their medal to be edible. It isn't.

Congratulations to God Medalists Angel & Kirby and to the Silver Medalists Laila & Minchie. All the entries were fun to view.

The winners of Merci's category will be announced tomorrow.

Percy: Sam has requested an opportunity to speak. Perhaps we should let all the winners have a turn.

Sam: Oh, sorry, I don't ... uh, I didn't mean ... I mean I wanted to say something on another subject. It wasn't my fault. Jan blamed most of those accidents on me, but she can't blame me for this one. I wasn't even in the same room this time!

Percy: What are you babbling about, Sam? You aren't responsible for what?

Sam: Jan's toe. It was Buddy. He jumped off the bed in the dark Monday night and landed smack on Jan's toe again. At least he landed on a different part of it but ... Well, it doesn't matter if he doesn't weigh as much as I do, he's still a big guy. And I'm not the one that made her scream this time. Can I please take my half of the medal and move into the closet until Jan's toe heals so I can't be blamed for any more accidents? My nerves are shattered and I hate the sight of blood.

Buddy: That's it. Blame me. It's actually Jan's fault. I distinctly heard her say, "Buddy, get off the bed." So I did!

Percy: Yep, none of us can fault you for Jan's lack of sight in the dark. If she didn't want you to land on her toe, it shouldn't have been in your way.
