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.

Teddy 74

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:

Teddy 60

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:

Allie, Ellie, Tamir, Cubby and Clifford are hosting Smackdown. Information on how to enter will be up soon on their blog.

Wally, Ernie and Zoey are hosting Synchronised Snoozing. Check their blog in coming days for information on how to enter.

Cory and her family are hosting  Balance Beam.  Information on how to enter will be up soon on their blog.

If you have any questions feel free to email me at the address noted above, or leave me a comment here.

Finally, if anyone would like to host an event, just let me know and I will add you to the list.

Jack, Persephone, Tenzing and Lancelot said...

I missed the 'Lympics last time! I was just gotted when they ended! I've been practicing my events for TWO YEARS!!!! But there's no High Climb! That's my best event!!! Can we have a High Climb?


PS. I think Lancelot haz a sad too. He's really good at dragging stuffs. We should have a 100-yard Drag event.

Play bows,

Quill and Greyson said...

Excellent work Teddy and Huffle! So happy many kitties are excited about the olympics.

I think Quill is a champion napper. Unfortunately he is so fast he is hard to take a picture of doing anything else.

Clarissa said...

How exciting! We are all expert nappers!

Cory said...

Oh so excited, we're posting about the Balance Beam competition tomorrow! We are going to use the exact same timeframe as you are, kind of like the real Olympics. Oh wait....these ARE REAL!

Is it too late to host an event?
Purrchance To Dream would like to host the RedDotAthon if events are still able to be added.
