Cats Will Be Cats!

Here's the latest email from my Olympic CATlete, Her Royal Highness --

Hello, human. Today I excelled at gymnastics. Unfortunately, so did every other cat at the Games. Gymnastics is EVERYONE'S best event.

I was grace itself on the balance beam . . . .


My pommel horse performance had no equal . . . .


And yes! Perfect dismount!


But @#$%!! ribbon gymnastics did me in and dashed my medal hopes -- damn you, ribbons, why must you be so FUN????


Don't lose hope for me yet! I'm trying my best and I just KNOW that I will win a medal sooner or later!

Luv, hugz and purrz from your striving kitty HRH.

Sulky Kitten said...

Very amewsing! Cat's are natural gymnasts - mine weighs 20lbs but can leap for the stars when he smells a chicken drumstick.

Sympathy sent to the be-ribboned HRH. Good luck with the less hypnotizing events.

Hopefully Her Royal Highness can make up some points in the vault!

What self-respecting kitty (world-class athlete or not) could resist a roll in ribbons?

Glory gone to ribbons, no fair.

HRH, you are and will always be the best. We won't even think about that silly ribbon, not after seeing your grace on balance beam, and your feline agility on the pummel, and my kitty goodness, I gasped after that dismount!

Stay glorious, HRH!

Po kitty....dastardly ribbons. Go HRH. I would suggest not being so hard on herself about the enticement of the mesmerizing strings of color and fun. Oma Linda

Poor kitty... How could she resist the ribbon-roll-a-thon? Perhaps they should make that an olympic event.

Birdie said...

It would mean so much for cats all over Canada for HRH to bring home a gold! I know she will do it!

Riot Kitty said...

Love the third pic. Go for the gold, kitteh!

Elsie said...

Ah, but who could resist ribbons?
On a separate note, I saw this cool Bee Stand in Ballard Designs' CATalog yesterday and thought of thee:

O my God, cutest cat post ever. A new Olympic record!

Francie said...

HRH deserves the gold! I shall continue to keep my fingers crossed!

Anne said...

My kitty Fang has a desire to emulate HRH and compete in the next Olympics. The problem is that the only thing she wants to practice is her acceptance speech.

Now show those puny humans how it's done HRH.
