The Catolympics' Torch Relay begins... NOW!

How wonderful! How exciting!
My two darlings, Bombay and Bangles, are the first torch bearers for the 2006 Catolympics.

The momentous event began in the wee hours of the morning. The two B's had to be woken up gently with their favourite tuna-flavoured stinky goodness. They were allowed extra helpings for that extra boost of energy. Bombay especially was very approving of that.

Wha...? Is it time already?

They were very excited about being torch bearers for the Catolympics and very honoured that they were picked to be the first two cats to start off the relay.

Where's the torch? Where's the torch?

There was, however, a moment of confusion when the relay started. I think the sheer brilliance of the flame must have briefly blinded Bombay and Bangles, because they ran off in opposite directions.

Oops! Which way is it?

Fortunately, Bangles regained his sense of direction quickly and both brothers shot off like lightning in the correct direction to the wild cheering of the crowd.

These two torch bearers almost needed a compass

Tomorrow, if all things go well and they don't lose their sense of direction again, Bombay and Bangles would have reached Fat Eric in the United Catdom. Please visit his blog to watch the 2 B's handover the torch to their ginger friend.

Please also visit the official Catolympics' site for the latest updates and schedule of all the cat-citing sports events.
