What Do Cats Think About the World Series?

Standard

Several cats in the town of Mudville decided they should have a baseball team. They had watched their humans laughing, yelling, jumping up and down and doing all kind of crazy things when they watched the World Series. It looked like a lot of fun! They called themselves the Mudville Mousers. It was tough to get the right cats to play the different areas of the field, but they finally did it. Kirby was the pitcher because it looked like he was quite good with his paws on AND off the field.

Kneading

Muffins was the catcher because that’s what he could do!

The Reflexes of a Cat

Next to be chosen were the outfielders. Their names were Huey, Louie, and Dewey.

Muggles was chosen to be the shortstop because he was so talented.

Cleo was on first base,

Cuddles played second base,

oh-no

and Ginger was on third base because nobody wanted to mess with her.

The day and time for the game with the Farthington Felines was set, but the game was never played. The Felines never showed up because they were taking a nap. When the Mousers were interviewed about how they felt about their game and the World Series, these were the results.

Well, so much for that. Maybe one of these days these cats will get their act together and play a game. In the meantime, I’m sure they’re enjoying their naps!

The “Kitten” Bowl is About to Start!

Standard

It’s a beautiful day in Santa Clara, California, and everyone is anticipating the start of the “Kitten” Bowl. There are eight contestants on each team. The goal is to see which team can get to the catnip in the end zone first. The contestants were introduced last week in this blog. If you missed that, you can check them out while you’re waiting for the game to start.

Looks like we’re ready. Team A gets to go first. Will they get to the catnip or will Team B be able to stop them? The whistle blows and here we go!!!!

I said the whistle blows and here we go!!! Ummmm, maybe the referee will tell us what’s happening because there’s no activity on the field. What in the world?!!

Referee: Team A has a five yard penalty for delay of game!

Seems like there are several problems with this team. Sandy is trying to sing the National Anthem (or should I say screech the National Anthem)

Whenever I Have a Problem I Sing

Ginger ran too much in practice and is too tired to play.

What Are You Talking About

Tabby couldn’t find the right shoes.

These Aren't My Shoes

Merlin decided he didn’t like the moment and was going to take a nap.

Today I Will Live in the Moment

Kirby was too busy smelling the flowers.

Smells So Good!

The only one who seemed to be ready was Fluffy. He was ready to receive anything he could catch.

Let It Snow

Referee: Since Team A can’t get their act together, it will be Team B’s turn!!

Okay, now maybe we’ll see some action. Since Team A is all over the field doing their thing, Team B should be able to go right down the field and get the catnip first. Here we go!!!!!!   Or not……..

Arvin likes to eat flowers

He Doesn't Really Care If She Loves Him

which Fang thinks is really funny!

I'll Laugh At You

Rhett is sad because of Scarlett

Tell Scarlett I Do Give a Damn

and Whiskers is having a fit about his whiskers not looking good.

Don't Look At My Whiskers

Snuggles is looking for a friend.

Adorable

Sammy would rather run in the house instead of on a grassy field.

I Have to Run

So, of course, the referee is going to give Team B a five-yard penalty also. Now what are we going to do? Morris, from Team A, is really disgusted about the whole thing.

You're Still Talking

Smarty, from Team B, seems to have all the answers, but that’s not much help.

I Have All the Answers

What about the quarterbacks. Which one is going to lead their team to the catnip? Guess it won’t be the one for Team B. He’s too busy showing off his beautiful coat!

Amazing Tail

Here comes the quarterback from Team A. Now we’re talking! I know who’s going to win this game!

No Time to Explain

His team piles in, they grab the catnip, and win the game! Way to go Team A!

Whew! Finally got through that one. I think the big boys had better forget the Kitten Bowl next year and leave it up to the kittens. They seem to have the energy to pull it off better. Oh, well, live and learn. Hope you enjoyed it.
