Today it's a public holiday in Melbourne to celebrate the Melbourne Cup. It's Australia's richest horse race, run over 3,200m. First place wins $3.2 million dollars. I don't think I can run fast enough to win though.
Here is a picture of the horses that came first (Viewed) and second (Bauer). Viewed won by about 3cm. It was a very close finish!
Mum didn't have to go to work today so we had coffee in bed. Then mum and dad went shopping and came home with boxes! I had to check them out, an explorer cat's work is never done. I'm going to have a nap now, like my best friend Zimmie is doing.
