Purdey’s Olympic challenge

I don’t know about you, but for the last three days I have been transfixed by the sporting events that have been taking place at the Olympics.   So many events, so much to watch!   From the comfort of my purry cushion, I’ve been inspired to emulate the sporting prowess of these wonderful athletes, and I would strongly encourage you to do the same.

Here are just a few of the fields in which I excel.   I can’t expect you to be quite as versatile or naturally athletic, but if you follow my example, we can all achieve a better level of fitness, with muscles that are honed and ready to snatch that precious little rodent, I mean gold medal, from the grasp of fellow competitors.

Don’t delay – dedicate yourself now to the glory of your country!

  1. What a cute little kitty you are! And quite an agile sportsman, too. 😉

    Thank you for the smile today, just what I needed. 🙂

  4. Susan Abernethy says:

    Very cute Jo!

  5. what a little olympian! quite active!

  6. I love the photos of the youthful, athletic Purdey. I really love the Horizontal Bar – you can see the effort going in.

    • Yes, you can see the concentration there. She is utterly dedicated to her sport. 🙂

      • Jazz has just put us through an endurance event by disappearing on Sunday night and only returning this morning. He never goes away for long periods of time and returned starving and very dirty so who knows which sport he thought he was competing in. I did wonder about “Hide and seek.”
        We are soooooo relieved that he is back emulating a “couch potato” again and we can do the same. We really did think some harm had befallen him out there.

      • Oh dear, I can understand your anxiety. I would have been very worried, too. Very glad to hear he’s back safely – it would be good to know what they get up to, when they go walkabout.

      • I was beside myself. We live adjacent to a road that has become very, very busy:-((
        But it would seem that he was a bit too much of a sticky beak “Kiwi” and got shut.
        He is oblivious to all our worrying and distress:-))

      • I would have been just the same. So glad he’s OK. Purdey sends fluffy regards and tells him he should be over the 24-hour rave phase long ago!

      • oops “shut in.” Purdey is correct about Jazz needing to act his mature gent’s age and enjoy the comforts of his pampered existence “chez nous”. He has always been a very friendly and sociable cat so perhaps he had a mid-life crisis moment in the gathering moonlight on Sunday. I will go and pass on Purdey’s fluffy regards to him right now.

  7. LOL this is terrific!!! I do think Purdy will do quite well in the games this year!

  8. I love these, Purdey! You are versatile and agile. I think some gold medals are in order here!

  9. WOW those are amazing and hilarious! What a champ!

  10. Purdey, if I had a gold medal to give out it would definitely be yours, this is an absolutely splendid series of shots! I love the gymnastics (floor) picture, and the fencing, indeed all of them. You are a very inspirational British athlete, and this post deserves wider recognition. I might just tweet it to team GB…

    • Thank you, on behalf of Purdey who is doing some relaxing meditation. And I see that you have indeed tweeted it to Team GB! 🙂 Purdey is expecting instant global fame and a year’s supply of Gourmet Perle (duck flavour).
