We would like to welcome you to the Wednesday Water Sports Event! This event is highlighting felines who like to use the loo in the great white! We are very excited to be hosting this event during this week of the Cat Olympics 2010. To check out what has been happening this week please visit our friend Fin, who is the creative cat that started this week of games!
It is a glorious day for this event and we are pleased to introduce you to our mascot out here in the woods~ Alabaster!
We did not get many entries as this is a very tough sport, requiring fierce dedication, paws of steel and a woodstove for post action warm ups. Due to this fact we are running The Water Event this Olympics as a demonstration sport. We will use this time to study the sport and try to lift the air of mystery that surrounds these competitors.
First up please welcome Flynn, an up and coming Snow Pee-er from across the pond. It doesn't snow much in England so the British Snow Pee-ers have a totally different style. As you can see, this sport for the BSP is all about the aim. They score extra points for standing in the snow but actually peeing on bare vegetation.
The BSP team also have coaches that offer hints from the sidelines and who inspect every play. Eric checks it out and announces Flynn has played his best pee yet!! Well done!!!
I am up next and will show you how us Canadian Polar Pee-ers do it!
It is the perfect pee day out there. New fluffy snow and some flakes still falling. To tell you the truth, this is the only time I am allowed to practice my sport. The PM lets me out only when there has been a storm, they are all outside and the driveway has not been done yet.
For a CPP, observation is key and it takes awhile to scout out the perfect spot.
I do enjoy a more secluded whizz under the cedar but that is mainly during off season recreation pees.
A true CPP takes to the open snow.
I smell the fresh clean air and make my move.
About ten paces is the norm and once the perfect spot is selected it all happens very fast. A very small dig is made, one paw swipes worth and then the key is balance. A slight squat with vertical tail is the ideal.
Then execute a tight turn, cover with a second paw swipe.
Now, for the finale. Walk back to the starting line in your same tracks!
That wasn't too bad but I need to work a little on tail leverage. Maybe the CPP will look into coaches?
What do you say Alabaster? Care to be my coach???
