Photo Diary of a Catolympics' Torch Bearer's Run

Phew! Our run is over and what a run it was! It shure was a toughie.
Bangles, I hate to admit it, is a lot fitter than I am. So he was ahead of me most of the time.

Hurry, Bombay! We're almost there. Hurry!

I'm hurrying... I'm hurrying... *pant pant*

This was my scenic view for most of the run -- Bangles' BIG behind!

Singapurr shure is a long long way from the United Catdom. But we eventually got there. It took us a furry long time though. So by the time we reached Fat Eric, he was all tired out from waiting and had fallen fast asleep on the pavement.

Fat Eric already running with the Catolympic torch in his deams

But his bean Mommy woke him up and Fat Eric was furry furry excited to see us. He headbutted and purred at us a lot which made Bangles and I feel furry welcomed.
We handed over the Catolympic torch proudly to him, and he was so thrilled to be holding it that he danced a most funny jig. And then he was off!
Good luck, Fat Eric! We hope you'll find your way easily to Mericky. Once there, Fat Eric will pass the torch over to two very energetic kitties, Harper and Ramona.

Harper & Ramona shurely have the energy to be torch bearers

For now, I am so happy to be able to rest my aching paws.

Aching and blistered paws need some lovin'

Bangles, as fit as he may be, is completely winded too

Our paws are now swollen and painful from all that running

Just look at how swollen my right paw is

But being a natural star, I still posed for the cameras

I let a bean masseuse massage one paw, while I massaged the other

Ahhh... sweet relief!

Fat Eric's bean Mommy is such a sweet lady. She fed us lots and LOTS of stinky goodness, then tucked us into a most comfy bed.

All ready for a well-deserved catnap

Still sore, so Bangles and I massaged each other's paws to sleep

When we woke up the next morning, we were greeted by a most glorious day. The sun was shining... the birds were chirping... and Fat Eric's Mommy had more stinky goodness for us!

A cat-bulous day in the United Catdom

The weather was so purrfect, Fat Eric's Mommy insisted on taking us out to do some sight-seeing. And what sights we saw!

Sight-seeing in the United Catdom

Fat Eric's Mommy wanted to take us to see a furry famous building called Big Bean, I think. On the way, we saw some horsies.

Horsies with helmets and furry smart stripped socks

Horsie tails shure aren't as nice as kitty tails

We then passed by a furry purrty pond where we saw many fishies swimming around a large fishie fountain. I noticed that most of them were ginger and calico fishies.

Bangles and I met some hungry birdies too. The birdies in the United Catdom seem to like pizza a lot.

Here's one birdie ordering a pizza take-out

Here's a lovey-dovey pair enjoying a pizza picnic together

Fat Eric's Mommy took us on a boat ride. We didn't like it so much because it was too rocky and windy. I tried looking out at the water carefully and look what I saw!

A furry handsome dollfin swimming along our boat!

Hurrow, Mister Dollfin!

We then went into a dark, cold place called a Mewseum. There were lots of strange things to see.

Here are some creepy-crawlies that I purrtect my Mommy from back home

And here's something that shure looks furry hungry and angry

Next, Fat Eric's Mommy brought us to an aquarroom where there were all kinds of fishies and underwater creatures.

I am told that this purrty thing is a C-Horsie

A turtle gets fed lunch by a bean dressed up like a sea panther

I even saw a Shark -- a BIG fishie with even BIGGER teeth

Seems like there are lots of hungry underwater creatures needing lunch

This manta ray demands to be hand-fed

Yikes! Is it going to eat the bean too?!

Later that night, Fat Eric's Mommy took us to a Carnival where we watched an amazing fire show. The fire scared Bangles a little, but I was brave enough to stand real close to watch them toss and spin the flames.

Flame throwers entertaining the bean crowds

The spinning lights almost left me hypnotised

I wonder if my Mommy would let me practice that at home

The flames were spun so fast, I could feel my fur flying!

I want to be the world's furrst kitty flame thrower!

Thanks to Fat Eric's wonderful Mommy, Bangles and I saw soooo many amazing things in the United Catdom. But we have to say that the purrtiest thing we saw had to be this...

I am wiped out now. Got to sleep. Bangles and I will be staying one more night at Fat Eric's, then we'll be teleporting back to Singapurr tomorrow. By then, Harper and Ramona should be proudly carrying the Catolympic torch.

Go, little ones! GO!

Signing off now with a sore paw

It looks like your journey was completely thrilling! The fire dancers looked like a lot of fun, but I hope neither of your tails got singed. Way to go, you two!

You two did a great job getting everything started. Rest those paws because the catolympic competitions are coming up fast.

What a great adventour! I'd be afraid of those fire dancers, but I likes water. Did you get to catch any fishies?

PrincessMia said...
