Welcome to the medal ceremony for Competitive Napping in the Cat-O-Lympics! It's been a pretty exciting week of competition, I must say. Before we go on, I'd like to thank Fin for hosting the Cat-O-Lympics in the first place, to Glogirly (Katie's human) for making the medals, and to every single kitty and pup who entered the competition. Every one of you did a marvellous job and it was extremely difficult for the judges to make a final decision.
As we saw yesterday, Paddy took out the People's Choice award for that truly amazing Treestyle Napping photo. Congratulations once again Paddy. Now, the medallists.
I have awarded medals in two categories. The first category is general napping and there were a lot of amazing entries in this field.
The second category is "sleeping where you're not meant to". This was optional and I had some very impressive entries in this category too. I'm going to call this the "naughty" category.
The general bronze medal winner, for demonstrating that sleeping with your head down the stairs is comfortable, is Jack-a-Roo from Cybersibes. Congratulations Jack!
The naughty bronze medal winner is Drill Sgt Zim of the Army of Four. He wages an almost daily battle with his mum over being allowed to nap on the Sitzbank. Well done Zim!
Wear your medals with pride!
The general silver medal winner, for managing to sleep while sitting upright, is Shadow from Meow Family. Well done Shadow!
The naughty silver medal winner is Derry from Fuzzy Tails. Not to be thwarted by his mum's attempts to stop him from sleeping in the pot by putting chicken wire over it, Derry ignores the discomfort and carries on! You make me proud, Derry!
Enjoy your silver medals!
The general gold medal winner, for what has to be the most dramatic sleeping pose we've ever seen, is Tuna from Kitty Stampede.
Congratulations Tuna, you beat out some wonderful competition to win the gold.
And the naughty gold medal winner, for being the naughtiest kitty to strike a napping pose anywhere in the world, is Snafu from Cat of Nine Tails.
I'm so proud of you, I could burst, Snafu! Enjoy your gold medal!
Once again, thank you to every single pup and kitty who entered. I would have liked to give a medal to everyone who competed, so I hope you've all collected your participation badge at the very least!
