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)
Ginger ran too much in practice and is too tired to play.
Tabby couldn’t find the right shoes.
Merlin decided he didn’t like the moment and was going to take a nap.
Kirby was too busy smelling the flowers.
The only one who seemed to be ready was Fluffy. He was ready to receive anything he could catch.
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
which Fang thinks is really funny!
Rhett is sad because of Scarlett
and Whiskers is having a fit about his whiskers not looking good.
Snuggles is looking for a friend.
Sammy would rather run in the house instead of on a grassy field.
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.
Smarty, from Team B, seems to have all the answers, but that’s not much help.
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!
Here comes the quarterback from Team A. Now we’re talking! I know who’s going to win this game!
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.
