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!
