Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Welcome to the Extreme Climbing awards ceremony!

Well, it has been a long and difficult journey for all the competitors in the Extreme Climbing Competition. We had a record number of entrants this year - 27 in all, beating our previous number by 27!

Because everyone did such a great job, and it was so tough to make a decision, the judges have deemed that all entrants deserve a gold medal!

First, we would like to announce all the winners in the Outdoor Competition.

Jane from The Casbah Kitten

Danielle from The Life of a Spoiled Cat

Spitter from Marg's Pets

Paddy from Cats in Trees

Eric and Flynn from Our Life by Eric and Flynn

Tama-Chan from The Poupounette

Scylla from Alassandra, the Cats and a Dog

Cliff from Cliff and Olivia

Midnight from TK and Squashies Furrever Home

Tygana from One Cat's Nip

Ayla from Mark's Mews

To those of you who are brave enough to enter this portion of the competition we say - Congrats and Be Careful! Seriously - some of you are on top of trees and houses!

Anyway, here is your gold medal (ok, it is a badge you can post on your blog - I had grand ideas to make them look like real medals, but couldn't figure out how to do it).

As you can see, we had a lot of wonderful entries. Part of our problem with selecting was that one kitty (Virgil) kept sitting in the background and chanting "Danielle"! "Danielle"! I guess we should have disqualified ourselves as judges once we saw that Virgil's girlfriend was in the running, but we thought he wouldn't cause any problems!

Now, on to the indoor competition!

The field for indoors was a bit bigger - probably because it is easier to get up high inside for a lot of kitties who don't go outdoors often. This event was also tough to judge, because there were so many exciting and different extreme climbing options - some went for height, others for difficulty.

Our competitors for this even are:

Flip from Meow Family

Spunky Doodle from Karen and Gerard Zemek

Nick from Fuzzy Tales

Saylor and Maizy from The Creek Cats

Snowflake (and Mikey too!) from Kittens n' Things

Bugsy and Pixie from The Kitty Krew

Smokey from Four Crazy Cats

Samantha from Life from a Cat's Perspective

Cotton from Jan's Funny Farm

Squashies from TK and Squashies Furrever Home

Daisy May Daffodil from Katiez Furry Mewz

Wally and Ernie from The Island Cats

Sadie from It's All About the Cats!

Ayla from Mark's Mews

Milo and Alfie from The Cat's Meow (who posted their entry before the inlinkz was up).

For those wonderful competitors, we have the lovely gold medal for Extreme Climbing - Indoors (ok, again, it is a badge to put on your blog).

We want to thank all our competitors - it was a wonderful, well played competition. We hope to see you all again for the next Cat-O-Lympics!
