Kleen and Fetching

Today we have our final entries for the Cat-a-lympics. Each of us has had opportunity to participate.

Mile Long Machine Kleen
We have entered Rusty in this event which is sponsored by One Cats Nip.

As you can see Rusty is very thorough, washing carefully all the way to the tip of his tail. This takes quite a while as Rusty has a long, thick coat. Unfortunately, when Jan took this photo, she had no idea there would be a competition coming up and she very nearly deleted this one, along with the other bath photos he conned her into taking that day.


A very thorough Rusty finishes his bath.

Fetching
We were stymied as to where Merci could participate since many of the games are limited to cats. We were just about to give up and enter her in the Competitive Napping contest with Percy when we learned The Monkeys are hosting a fetching competition. Can Merci fetch? You bet your rawhide! She played fetch with Jan in the front yard in the rain one day and fortunately Jan's brother recovered all these photos when her computer had a meltdown last year. So here is our lovely Merci fetching her stick. This was pre-dog pen, so for her safety Merci was on a very long leash.


Jan threw the stick and Merci has caught up to it.


She is very particular. It must be picked up to be carried just so.


Moving quickly, Merci runs with the stick.


And a reflective moment on her fetching success.

We have enjoyed participating in the Cat-0-lympics. There is some very tough competition, but we think the Funny Farmers are good athletes and each entry stands a good chance of winning a medal.

Good luck to each of the other competitors.

  11. Well Rusty doesn't have to shower before receiving his medal at the podium. That is just down right smart playing. Merci definitely should get the gold medal for fetching. What about retrieving?

  19. Great job Merci. Sure hope you win the medal for fetching. Rusty good job for you too and ditto on the medal.

    Jan almost all the pictures that I put on the scripture post are the ones I have taken myself. And I really thank you for the complement on the comment section. I enjoy photography but it seems like I have to many pictures of the river but it is everchanging. I love the sunrises we get over the river.
