Going For The Gold!

It has been entirely too long since we've heard from our favorite feline (I realize it's probably more "my" and less "your"). She is still loving the stairs and I'm going to guess she's lost at least 1/8 of a pound from making the climb multiple times a day. I've taken notice of her sleeping positions lately and realized we might have an Olympian on our hands--I need to get her on a diving board pronto! She might exceed the weight limit but I think she will finally allow USA to give China a run for their money.

Introducing Thumbs Magee (cue Olympic music):

She trots to the end of the diving board and wait a minute, she's turning around! She is going to do a back dive into the water, folks! There she goes!


And immediately goes in for the tuck. An impressive tuck for such a monstrous belly!


Coming out of the tuck, look at that form!


Stretching her short, chubby legs to prepare for entry...


And in she goes! The crowd (aka Meredith) goes wild! 10's across the board!


On a different note, here she is reading Harry Potter with me. What a smart cat! A diver AND a reader. I am so lucky.

I do believe your smart cat is reading Harry Potter upside down.

LOL that is hilarious. Love how you captured her many sleeping positions. The narrating is awesome, too. haha

I find my cats are quite intriguing creatures too.

They like to (individually) sleep under blankets with me, between my legs, for awhile. Then they cook themselves and have to crawl out and spread all out on the floor to cool off.

I am so glad that someone is as nutty about her pet as I am.

THUMBS. THUMBS. THUMBS. THUMBS.

(That's the crowd chanting her name as she prepares for her final dive in 2012.)

Mattie wishes lapping water out of the faucet was an Olympic event. She also adores Harry Potter.

Mattie and Thumbs (and Crookshanks) would be best friends for sure.

Wow - what a talent Thumbs has! And I would totally be cheering on the sidelines even though I'm not a fan of cats. But a cat that can dive AND read - well, let's just say anyone would be a fan!
