Welcome to the Medal Ceremony for the
2010 Cat-O-Lympics’ Synchronized Snoozing event!!


(pretend you’re hearing that Olympic theme song playing again)

The judges finally have stopped their fighting and have come to a decision!  We wanna say again that there were so many excellent entries and the competition was fierce!!  There were 39 competitors including several woofies and humans!!  Any of the competitors coulda won a medal.  The judges narrowed the field down to 12 finalists.  But they could still not decide on the 3 medalists!  So, a new judge (the Island Cat guy) was brought in to make the final decision!!

We were gonna show all the competitors, but with so many entries, it’s just not practical.  So we’re listing everybuddy who competed (in no particular order; the 12 finalists are in red)…and if you click on their name, you can see their entry!!  We hope we didn’t miss anybuddy!!

Devon & Smokey from Four Crazy Cats, Norm & Snowball from Cats of the Wildcat Woods, Niko & Cloud, Simba & Rusty, Gypsy, Pixie & Ziggy and Callie & Roxy from The Kitty Krew, Laila & Minchie, the woofies Buddy & Sam from Jan’s Funny Farm, the House of Cats, Manny & Spunky, Owen & Snafu from Cat of Nine Tails, the kitties and woofies over at Dog Foster Mom, the kitties and woofies over at Spacial Peepol, Angel & Kirby, Bennie & Sadie (along with their human) from It’s All About the Cats, Socks & Scylla from Alasandra, the Cats and a Dog, The House of (Coon) Cats, Angel & Isabella from Beaded Tail, Cliff & Olivia, Derry & Nicki from Fuzzy Tales, Eric & Flynn, Jack & Persephone, Ellie & Sniffie from the Florida Furkids, Tucker, Daisy & Leo from Two Goldens and a Wannabe, Elliot, Bella, Harlee, Olivia & Munchie from Katiez Furry Mewz, Meerkat & Padre over at The Furry Bambinos, Abby & Boo over at Manx Mnews, Smudge & Spider, Milo & Alfie, The Boys over at Kitten ‘n Things, Cory & Ellie, Gracie (good job using Mini-me, Gracie!), The Boys over at Marg’s Pets, King & Pandora over at the Kool Kitty Krew, Lizzie & Connor over at Chez Cat, Bucky & Simba over at Lucy’s Cat Lounge, Audace & Ruse, the kitties over at I Have Cat, The Bumpass Hounds and Kitties (great use of a human, Chance!), Raymond & Busby over at Cats By the Sea, and last minute competitors, Tiny & Lautrec from Weezdabadcats who said they created a blog just so they could compete!!

Everybuddy was GREAT and we wanna congratulate and thank all the competitors for participating!!  We wish there were medals for everybuddy — you all deserve one!!  You’re all true CAT-O-LYMPIANS!!!

And now for the medalists!!
