Cat Olympians!!



I am soooo 'cited!! Mommy finally told us what event we will be competing in, in the catolympics!! I am going to be competing in the gymnastics category, specifically the balance beam. I am soooo good at that!! I have been practicing a lot since I found out. I have perfected the pose I call "not falling off". It took me a while to come up with that one. Before that I was very good at the routine called "Jump, scrabble for footing, hang on for dear life, execute a difficult landing". Cheese is competing in the gymnastics category also, but he is doing a floor routine. He tried to qualify for the balance beam but he was still in the "Jump, scrabble for footing, hang on for dear life, execute a difficult landing" phase of his training. He is having a problem with the landing. Mommy put a couple of blankets on the stairs for a softer landing, but, after a couple of tries, he just lost interest. Now he is working on his floor routine. This is what he has so far...

He gets to this stage and forgets what comes next so he just takes a nap. He doesn't seem too concerned about it though. However, He does practice this part of it a lot... I guess he just wants to make sure he has it down.

Wait till you hear what event Autumn is competing in...
