It’s time for the 2012 Cat-O-Lympics!
(pretend you’re hearing the Olympic theme song playing)

We had so much fun with the Cat-O-Lympics in 2010, we’re doing it again in honor of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, England this July!!  Once again, we will be hosting the “Synchronized Snoozing” Competition!

This competition can be entered by a single-cat or a two-cat team or a larger cat team if you can get more than two of you to synchronize snooze at the same time.  We have to say, if you get more than two of you to synchronize snooze at the same time, you’ll get extra points!!  If you’re a single cat competing, you’ll have to use your creativity to come up with something to show your synchronization (maybe use a stuffed animal or your beans or something??).  Oh yeah…woofies can compete too!

Here’s how to enter the competition:

  1. You must submit your entry to us no later than Friday, July 13 (whatever time zone you’re in).

  2. You must email us your picture of you showing your best effort at snoozing together in unison  (See??  Like us!!) to theislandcatsATgmailDOTcom.  Include the names of the competitors AND a link to your blog (if you have one).

  3. Competing in this event means you are giving us permission to use your picture for the 2012 Cat-O-Lympics.

  4. Your picture doesn’t hafta be new, but you must not have used it for the 2010 Cat-O-Lympics.

  5. The competition is open to all cats and woofies.  You don’t need to have a blog to enter.

Starting July 27, us and others will be hosting the 2012 Cat-O-Lympic events. Click HERE to visit Huffle Mawson to find out about the other competitions that are taking place.

Good luck!!  And may the best snoozing team win!!

  1. Ernie and Wally
    What a fun event and you two are purrfect examples of how to it just right!
    I only sleep with me, myself and I but we all sleep synchronized…does that count?
    Hugs Madi

  2. It looks like great fun! We won’t be entering this one, unfortunately, because we don’t snooze together…at least never when the human is around. We’re looking forward to seeing all the entries, though!

  3. i’ll let the boyz know they have to work on their snoozin.

  4. Those are excellent examples!! We’re looking forward to the Cat-O-Lympics!!

  5. We are going to do some intensive training for this event – it may look easy but we know it takes many hours of practice to get everything just right!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  6. Oh that sounds like great fun. We sure will enter that one. We already have a picture. Wish we could get all of them napping together. NOT. Have a super day.

  7. Cute pictures! We’ll have to work toward the event. First, practice napping in the same room…

  8. Sounds like fun.

  9. You two are the best to host that event!

  10. That is such a cool that as a single cat I can enter as well as I do some premium snoozing. Looking forward to the competition

  11. What a fun!! I gotta train my boys to perform the perfect sychronized snoozing!!

  12. Is there a difference between this and the synchronized lounging event? Do our eyes have to be closed. I didn’t know about the Cat-O-Lympics last time.

  13. It’s too bad that Ichiro doesn’t quite get the synchronized part…

  14. We are TERRIBLE at team work! I don’t think we could synchronize anything here!

  15. ooooh, we can TOTALLY do this one!

  16. Oh boy!! This is one event my gang excels at!! Good luck to all the entries!

  17. My cats can compete at breaking stuff 🙂

  18. We think we HAVE some photos of us doing synchronized sleeping…now we just need to see if we can get Mommy to do some work for us. Wish us luck!

  19. I think there is a pic of Austin synchronised with a stuffed yellow bird. Must seek it out …..

  20. Some kitties are just so talented! Unfortunately ours aren’t when it comes to synchronized snoozing. They each like to do solo acts.

    Good luck with the competition and we hope you get many entries!

  21. How exciting! We are going to enter. Sleeping is what we do best!

  22. Now boys this sounds like a good challenge.
    Mom will have to watch over us and see what happens because we are all notorious for not wanting to be near any of the others.


  23. I was wondering how you could synchronize with just one cat!

  24. We are practicing our synchronized snoozing starting tonite!

  25. We’ve got this one down. We just sent our entry to you!

    Truffle and Brulee

  26. We GOTS to start working on our Olympics entries….

  27. I’m going to love seeing all of the entrants.

  28. We are going to try to enter this one, but since we don’t like to sleep close enough to smell each other, don’t know if it will be possible!

  29. I am a pretty good sleeper AND I am a true friend to all felines. Can I participate with one of my feline sisters?

    Your pal, Pip

  30. We are practicing now! This is a tough one cause we usually sleep alone.

  31. We’re going to hone our skills and enter this competition! Looks like fun!

    PeeS: Thanks for the suggestion for our sisfur Sadie. We sent Daddy uptown to get some Pepcid!

  32. Sounds like great fun, we’re definitely entering !!!!

  33. Hmmm … we’ve been caught sharing sunpuddles before, but we’re just not sure we can work together well enough to be synchronized. MOL!

  34. I am pondering which events I can enter, but I don’t think this is one of them. Unless I have a previously undiscovered twin? Hellooooooo, Photoshop!

  35. This ones going to be tough for me. I might have to snooze next to a mirror…or Glogirly. : )

    Thinking cap is ON.

  36. Ernie and Wally have it all together for this event. We’re a solo act and nothing looks like us (and my woman is so lame), so guess we’ll have to pass on this one.

  37. Thank you for the kind words about Monty! We miss the blogs and plan to start blogging more!

  38. We are so excited! We love all the categories and are entering a few snaps of our own 😉
