Practicise, Practise, Practise…
I’ve been thinking, and I am gonna try to get ready to enter one of the upcoming Cat-O-Lympic events!! YES!! Gettin’ more and more confident!!
But I know, it will take Practice, Practice, Practice!!!
So I am not much of a jumper, I kind’a don’t like getting all 4 paws off the floor at one time. But I may try for that. The one I think I might be good at is the Smackdown Event, except I don’t know what that is…hmmmm…so I think that’s the one I’ll go for!
So, I follow Leader Otis’ blog, The Blog of Otis. And he and his Brothers Oliver and Henry are training for their own in-house catlympics which they do in October.
Leader Otis was very impressed with Mama Cat’s prowess (vocab builder)…so much so that he asked Mama Cat to train the limbo kitties for his Catlympics. I am so impressed with her training mantra, Watch, Anticipate, Act, that I had to try it myself.
Watch means to focus on the bird, know the bird; Anticipate means get ready for where it will go next; and Act means use the kill strike, smack it down, and also requires that you must have the appropriate ‘kill’ face on when you act.
That’s what I am working on now. Last night was my first workout with Mom handling the training Flying Bird.
I do my work mostly from the floor…but I get pretty good leverage given I have very well developed gluts (that’s butt muscle for the uninformed).
….now I am practicing WATCH…good eye focus on the bird…can ya see that???…
…now the bird moves and I ANTICIPATE where it is going and prepare my body for the next move…can ya see my ‘anticipation’???…(no, not the song sillies…the mood…)…and can ya see I’m startin’ to get my ‘kill’ look going too???
…ACT!!!! Check out that ‘KILL’ face!!! Nice, huh?!…except I missed the bird!!..OH MY CAT!!!…how embarrassing….
But…this was just my first training session, and like I said…Practice, Practice, Practice…
hhhmmmmmm…I wonder if I should find out what that Cat-O-Lympic event Smackdown really is???…maybe I need another training routine!!!
I guess I could at least enter the Competitive Napping…I do that one really good…hmmmm…off for Practice, Practice, Practice for that event now….zzzzzzzzzzz
