Wally!  Wake up!!
It’s time to announce the finalists
for the Synchronized Snoozing competition!

Huh?!?  Oh that’s right!  Today’s the day!

Our esteemed panel of judges…made up of the dad-guy and our friends, The Walking Guys, had a tough time narrowing down the field of over 60 entrants to just 15.  But somehow they did it.  All of the competitors gave medal-worthy performances!  You’re all great synchronized snoozers…and  true Olympians!!

So, without further a-do…here are your 2012 Synchronized Snoozing Olympic Finalists!!

(in no particular order)


Archie, Ben and Jimmy from the country of Cat’s Cats
It’s quite impressive how they all hold the line!
And their ear synchronization is darn near purrfect! 

Peanut, Mia and Rolz from the country of The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey
Not only do they synchronize with each other…
they synchronize with the blanket!

Gracie and George (aka Captain Cattastic) from the country of Cat Patches
A great display of the mirror with tail tuck technique!

Trixie and Lily from the country of Trixie and Lilly and Sammy-Joe
A great example of the side-by-side technique!
And their left paw placement is spot on!

Nahum and Theo from the country of Four White Paws
With all those stripes…it’s hard to tell where one ends and the other begins!

Daisy and Leo from the country of Two Goldens and a Wannabe
The judges were impressed with the fact that a cat snychronized with a woofie!

Derby and Ducky from the country of Derby and Ducky
A very good display of the curl and tuck technique!

Henry and Annie from the country of The Kitty Party
Nice curl with pike technique!

Chloe and Moe from the country of The Daily Oskar
Now this is a difficult move…the semi-tucked mirror technique!

Darcy and Bingley from the country of Purrfect Haven
Another difficult move…the inverted mirror with layout technique!

Willow and Tigger the Tiger from the country of Devoted to Willow
A creative move using a stuffed animal!
Extra points for purrfect head placement!

Joey and Minnie from the country of Cats of the Wildwood Cats
Great side-by-side with extended paw technique!

Cosmo and Ling from the country of The Furries of Whisppy
A great display of the difficult push me-pull you technique!

Tillie and Georgia from the country of Mickey’s Musings
Purrfect straight-line technique!
The extended legs are an added difficulty!

Ginger Jasper and his Dad from the country of Ginger Jasper
Now this is just too darn cute!

Eric and Flynn from the country of Our Life by Eric and Flynn
Excellent use of pot props!

Hey, waydaminit, Wally!  That’s 16 finalists…not 15!!

Ernie, I guess those judges can’t count!

Okay, now it’s your turn!  Vote for your favorite Olympic Synchronized Snoozing Team!  The poll is on our side bar.  Voting will go for the next week.  The top 3 vote getters will be awarded the gold, silver and bronze medals in the medal ceremony on August 8!  Good luck to all 16 finalists!!
