Dispatch from London

I received another email from Her Royal Highness *LIVE* from the 2012 Cat Olympics in London:

Hello, human! The swimming and diving events were held today. Of course, these sports have been modified to more accurately reflect our feline sensibilities --



That's right -- no swimming pools for us! As you know, all cats have post traumatic stress disorder from past horrible experiences of *shudder* bafftime.


So far Olympic Glory has eluded me, alas, but I'll keep on trying my best!

Luv, hugz and purrz from your cat, HRH.

I haven't yet watched the Olympics. If cat swimming was an event, maybe that might change.

Oh my! The art behind the tuck in that dive is magnificent. Debra, do tell HRH that her emails are more informative that everything I've seen up to date.

I'm still cheering!

This is so funny!
And hey, I want to say from your last post. Did anyone else love the Queen's dress and the way that she did her hair? Just wondering, I haven't heard anyone say...

Suzie said...

Sadly, I haven't been able to be around very much, and I miss your posts! So much so, that while watching bits and pieces of the opening ceremony, the thought popped into my head out of no where! "I'll bet that Deb's HRH is there in the stands somewhere. .or else hanging out in the palace, thinking that mingling with the common folk is too much beneath her status. :-) I KNEW that she couldn't pass up going to London!

Introverted Art said...

Debra, this is absolutely adorable. The olympic diver kitteh seems to be going for the gold!

laughingwolf said...
