Sunny Saturday

Here is a photo of me looking cute in the sunshine.

This is from our old house, with my deck. I am sorry to say the deck at our new house is not finished yet; the rain keeps getting in the way.

Don't forget about the Cat-O-Lympics! Details on all the events are on the Page I set up, you can click on that to find out who is hosting what. You can send me your entries for Competitive Napping any time, too.

The sporting event of the year!

Yes, that's right, it's Cat-O-Lympics time again!

Two years ago the Cat Blogosphere hosted the Cat-O-Lympics and everyone had such a good time that I thought we'd do it again.  If you don't remember the last time, or you weren't even blogging then, you can check out the event on my blog here, here, here, here, here and here.  Other cats hosted different events on their blogs too, and that's what is going to happen this year.

The event I am hosting is Competitive Napping. The winner of this event last time around was Tuna from the Kitty Stampede blog, as you can see here:


Tuna was a worthy winner.

And now it's your turn. From 27 July, this blog and several others will be hosting Cat-O-Lympic events. Our event is Competitive Napping, and here is Teddy to show you how it's done.

The rules are simple. You must be napping. If you're napping in a place where you shouldn't be, then so much better.

Yes, that's Teddy in the washing machine.

Alternatively, you can nap in a dramatic pose. See Tuna's photo above, or this one from Teddy:

So those are the rules. Here's how to enter:
  1. You must submit your entry to me no later than Friday 13th July (whatever time zone you're in).
  2. You must email me your picture, together with the name of the cat/dog competing AND a link to your blog by sending it to huffleAThufflemawsonDOTnet.
  3. Competing in this event means that you are giving me permission to use your picture for the Cat-O-Lympics 2012.
  4. Your picture does not have to be new but you must not have used it in the previous Cat-O-Lympics 2010.
  5. Each cat or dog can enter each event once.
  6. Entry is open to all cats and dogs.  You do not need to have a blog to enter.

Here is a list of the other events being hosted during the Olympics:

Does anyone remember us?

I can so too be a good boy! Teddy 168

No Teddy, this is how you be a good cat. Huffle 201

I know it has been a very long time since we posted (thanks MUM!) but hopefully in the next couple of weeks things will get back to normal. And stand by on Sunday next week for a big competition announcement!

You know the Olympics are on this year, right?
