Olympic Cattitude

Here's today's email from Her Royal Highness at the London Cat Olympics --

Hello, human! I bet you think this event is kayaking, don't you? WRONG!!


It is, in fact, the extremely demanding, skill-testing feline Olympic event called "Bossing Around Humans." The CATlete rides in the kayak where it's nice and dry and must, using only meowing (no teeth or claws), make its dim-witted human paddler manoeuvre the boat through a series of obstacles.


An American kitty won the Gold in this event. You can see from his face what a bossy and determined CATlete he is.


American fans are the noisiest ones here too.


Actually, I didn't even enter this event because my bossiness skills are not yet at the elite level needed for international competition. Expect a LOT MORE practising in this area when I get home, human. Right now I'm reading the best training manual on the market -- "Fifty Shades of Meow." So when I say "jump" from now on, by the Goddess Bast, you'll JUMP!!!

Luv, hugz and purrz from your cat, HRH.

LOL! Sounds like your life may never be the same with the return of HRH! :D

HRH sounds like she is being overly influenced by feline radicals. I'd change the locks before she gets back.

(50 shades of meow!! hilarious!)

Barfly said...

Bahaha! In my loud obnoxious voice (you may melt to my southern accent though Debra....it may make you want to play on my team, if only for one game).

Seriously, that was a funny post.

So...HRH will be in training when she gets back???

DEZMOND said...

Oh,my, that means she will practice bossing on you, Debs, when she returns.... gotta prepare for Brazil!

Lois said...

Start practising your jumps!! She is certainly having a wonderful time. L

Eek! I was conteplating sending Squeaker next time, but I'll have to rethink the whole thing now. But maybe HRH just has Catolympic bravado (and naughty reading habits.)

OH NO...watch out

Riot Kitty said...

No cat has subpar bossiness skills. Methinks you underestimate yourself!

LaelShine said...

Oh God, she's killing me. I'm laughing so hard. That last photo is priceless.

I love bossy cats! They are the best!!

Wendy S. said...

The beauty and poise of cats will far outlast the memories of the silly humans who won. Yayyy, to all the kitty olympians!

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

Har har har har har...your posts have been hilarious! I'm really enjoying them. The last photo on this post just cracked me up. Looks like HRH is going to come back bossy, and with oodles of attitude. Pretty much what every cat is on a daily basis, so you won't really notice a difference! :)

SULKY KITTEN said...

Such cattitude deserves a Gold Medal. Brace yourself!

Magaly Guerrero said...

HRH, I'm in tears. You should have narrated the Olympic for everyone and every event, I bet they would have been more entertaining and less catty.

I love your spirit ;-)

Well, I like the Bast reference.

Frostbite and Sunburn said...

I'm not entirely convinced that HRH hasn't reached the elite level yet - I think she's probably not far from what is required! Watch out human indeed!

Jim said...

LOL! What a hoot! And I suppose the Canadian Catletes (?) are apologizing all over the place? And excusing themselves if they are in the way?

Jane said...

Lol, dim-witted human paddler! So far, these Olympics are going to the cats... :)

Kellie @ Delightfully Ludicrous said...

LOL! Sounds like you're in for a hell of a time when she gets back!

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

Love this! How funny.... :-))

Jeanne said...

If I were you, I'd tell HRH that you don't know how to swim and are afraid of water.......

Magic Love Crow said...

I am laughing so hard, I can't type! LOL! These are great posts! Thanks for the smiles!

laughingwolf said...

gooder stuff, hrh...

i'm PAWSITIVE no CATHLETE deliberately threw a competition in order to face weaker opponents during the run for gold, like i heard some hoomins did, in BADminton

after all, at the elite level, All cats are equal; it's just that some are more equal than others, like napoleon says, in 'animal farm'...

Rue said...

Oooh, look who's getting catty! HRH better remember who feeds her. And bring home a medal!

Rose - The Center of My Self said...

Feigned indifference is more common than bossiness in cats. We'll see what happens when she gets home ...

Anne said...

This is such a fun series of posts, so creative and the pics are a hoot. HRH is a feline above all felines and will dominate this even in the next
Olympics when she's mastered the skill of dominating all humans.

Makropoulos said...

Nice! I've been missing the Olympics, but this entry makes me realize I'm much remiss -- will turn it on now in search of cats!
