Thursday In The Garden With Jonesie- Olympic Edition



Mom, can I enter the Cat-Olympics?  I think I can win a medal in Biathlon.  The combination of  twig play and kleening machine is too much for most cats to handle but I think I got a shot.


It's hard to get the twig under control.  It takes good paw mouth coordination.  It takes years to purrfect this so young kittens typically don't do as well in this event.

I know this looks like fun, but it's really hard to make it look this easy.

You can show the twig no mercy.

When you have a chance to put the bitey on, you gotta go for it.


Got it!!!

It's ok to celebrate your victory over the twig.  I do it all the time!  You can see how tough this was by all the grasses stuck in my paws.  This is why the second half of the event is so important.



Gotta clean those paws.  A Kleen machine is what separates the cats from the kittens.  
Please leave a link and let me know what's happening in your garden...or your  Cat-O-Lympic event!  Don't forget to visit the Olympic village over at Fin's place.  And guess what?  Not only can you catch up on all the action in the CB, Cory is playing Fin in Ice Cube Hockey so don't miss out on the action at Fin's!

You certainly gave that twig a workout, followed up by a thorough cleaning. I am very impressed with your form.

Jonesie, you got an evil twig too! I have been battling one since my very early days too, but mine seems to shows up rather in the appartement than outside. Ways to go, you've got GREAT form!
Purrs, Siena

Ahhh, the Evil Twig (or ET as we call it). All of ours are frozen at the moment but we're going to study your form very carefully for future reference.
Great job! You are the Twig Master!

You're a great biathlete, Jonesie! We haven't seen anyone else competing in this event, so we're pretty sure you're a gold medal winner!

Wow, maybe when you have earned your medal, you could put out a training video for those of us who are mostly indoors and want to learn about stick play!! I would LOVE it!

My mom wants to know what kind of cat you are, Jonesie? She said you look a lot like a Maine Coon from my family. Very gorgeous coat! --Dorian
