Chariots of Fur

My cat, Her Royal Highness, is a true champion. She never gives up! Here is today's email from the London Cat Olympics --

Hello, human. The track and field racing events were held today. This might surprise you, but cats can actually be quite lazy creatures who don't want to exert themselves all that much. So getting together a field of CATletic competitors can sometimes be a challenge . . . .


But of course I was very keen to race -- still hoping to win a medal! Here's a shot of me in action . . . .


Not every cat is motivated by medals, however . . . .


But, no matter what the incentive, NO KITTY ALIVE could catch the Jamaican feline flash, Puss-ain Bolt . . . . What a superstar!


Long story short, I just missed the podium by a WHISKER! But I'm not discouraged. My best event is coming up on Friday and I have a good feeling about it.


Luv, hugz and purrz from your cat, HRH.

HRH, you're the best!!

Lisa said...

ah Debra- so funny , so funny. Much funnier than the real Olympics which are being taken very seriously down under.
I wish I had a cat.

Birdie said...

What is it with cats and boxes? My fiancé and I put boxes down and have bets on which cat will climb in first and how many minutes it will take.

(I need to get out more often.)

Do you miss HRH yet?
