Mitten Monday

 My mom and I spent a lot of time together last week watching the Olympics.  Her favorite is watching the rowing events.  She had a special app on her iPad so she could watch ALL of the events.  Every heat, semi, petite finals and finals.  Sheesh!
 All the splashing around and no matter how much I meowed and swatted at them, they didn't go any faster.  At least I think they didn't.
 Sigh.

It all makes me a bit sleepy.   And we still have a whole week to go.  Wonder what we'll be watching next.

 Meowing about the Olympics...my momma Ellie and my brother Figaro found out they did NOT medal in the competitive napping events.  Unfazed by this turn of events, they promptly went back into training for the Winter Games 2014!

I can see why your human loved the rowing. And I too am shocked that Tillamook hasn't contacted you

We have been too busy here to watch any of the Olympics. :-(

Looks like they've got a head-start on the competition!

Guess what, one of the mens rowers goes to mummies gym. When he got a gold everyone there got a free drink :)xx

The Olympics do seem to have a strange effect on our humans, don't they?!

Our human was able to catch a lot of the rowing too -- she loves watching it. The power of the athletes' bodies is amazing. Plus there might be something about a lot of the male rowers' thighs.....

Our mom has been watching lots of that human Olympic stuff too...we think the Cat-O-Lympics are MUCH more interesting!!

I'm not an Olympic fan at all, but I admire the Olympic competitors for their hard training and great effort.

I think Ellie and Figaro have the right idea :)

Training to sleep is great! =)

I am sure you did your best to encourage the rowers, Cory - Figaro and Ellie have the right idea and plenty of time to train - perhaps you could join them - your sleepy pose looks rather good!

we love the Olympics too but are starting to wind down our watching of them.

Mom really only loves gymnastics and swimming :)

Cory, we think your Mom might be slightly dotty about rowing...

Say, we like your non-skid placemats! Nice for NOT falling off the table while you nap.

Our mum has been watching far too much Olympics too instead of helping us.

I would think your swats would make them go faster...
Great training for next time!
