Well my good chaps, its been a while since my last post. Very busy you know preparing for my olympic events, pairs ice skating with Fiona and then the mens Downhill. If you have not seen our event videos please take a peek. I must tell you what fun I had last week. It was jolly good fun.
Bowlers off to Finn and to all the event hosts. The competition was tough, every entry I saw was a gold medal winner. The ice skating venue with Fiona was quite fun. However, my downhill run was brillant, what a rush. It really got my blue blood going. Us British Mancats do love excitement and what is more exciting than the downhill with an avalanche at your heels. Nothing I tell you-nothing!
Did you know Downhill skiing is a variation of alpine skiing, and the rules for this sport were developed in the 1920s during the National Ski Championships in England. The term is used by many people to mean any sport in which a skier descends a mountain slope at high speeds. Many styles of skiing have evolved from downhill skiing, and are very popular today.
The downhill version of skiing is the fastest performed. Skiers can reach a top speed of 80 miles per hour, and on many courses in Austria skiers will reach speeds of over 90 miles per hour. Because of this, downhill skiing is also one of the most dangerous winter sports performed. An accident at these speeds could instantly kill a skier. To perform in this sport, skiers are expected to have strength, skill, and a high level of courage.
Sphynx are known for being courageous, and their muscular physique, strength, and agility which makes me the perfect downhill skier. It was quite the rush. You should all give it a whirl before all this snow melts. Anyway....
Like I said, all the entries I saw looked like medal winners to me. Will be tough to pick the medal winners. Congrats to everyone who participated! Can't wait to see who wins.
I am still quite knackered from last week. Well then, I am off to spend a penny, eat a butty, have some clotted cream and take a very long kip. Oh... Nuts! I gave up clotted cream for Lent. Just the butty then..
Toodles, Cheerio and Hip hip hooray and all that stuff!

I want give you an update on where we stand after all the donations and the Auction. We have $800 left after all the vet visits we made these past few months. Every penny of the remaining money will go towards Fiona's next vet visit in a few weeks and then towards any dental surgery she may need. Her breath is stinky again even with the 2x daily meds and treated drinking water, so we won't be surprised if they want to remove some teeth. Other than that Fiona is doing so much better now than when we first got her. She is happy and running wild in the house. She is super sweet and a love.
Spot is doing better, he has sneezes on and off but other wise doing good. They are to this point because of all your generous support . We don't know what we would have done without all of you. Again thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Please pick up your Bowler Appreciation Award if you have not done it already.
Blessings to you all!

Let me start by saying Thank you to You! We have been truly blessed by everyone at the CB. Our lives have been enriched and lifted by all your purrs, prayers, and financial support. Your generosity over whelms us. Each one of you have touched our hearts. There are no words adequate enough to personally express my gratitude.
How do you thank someone for providing purrs, prayers, money, and auction items that helped pay for Fiona's and Spot's vet bills? So, I asked Kaite and Glogirly to make a very special appreciation Award that we could give out to all those who have helped us these past few months with Fiona's and Spot's vet bills. I love what they created just for us to give to you. We could not be more proud to present the fisrt ever one of a kind Bowler Appreciation Award.
Please accept this award as a token of my profound appreciation for all that you have done for our family and for Spot and Fiona.

It's been a long week for me. Actually, Wednesday was not a good day for me. It was the first time since I came to my new home that I really did something naughty. I didn't mean to cause such a catastrophie but I did. I bet you are wondering what I did.. hang on I will tell you. You need to know that I am not a good jumper, I can't jump very high yet. I don't know why I just can't, doesn't mean I don't try-I do. That's where the catastrophie happened.
Dad made his famous chili mac for him and mom. He worked hard making sure everything was perfect and that mom could sit and relax after work. Dad called mom to the table to eat, I got all excited and decided to try and jump onto the table. I jumped and made it to the top of the table..well the edge of it anyway. I put one paw on the table and one paw on the rim of the mom's plate. The plate of chili mac went flying and landed upside down on the kitchen floor, mom and dad's jackets that they had hung over the back of the chairs, Spot's mancave, and the mail on th table. To make things worse I got so scared that I jumped off the table knocking over the cup of water . The water flew in all directions including the window, the wall, the mail and the floor.
I didn't know what to do, I am still kind of new and I didn't know what mom and dad would do to me, would they yell and me, hit me, throw me outside? I was so scared that I ran up stairs and hid shaking the whole time. Mom came upstairs to find me but I was a good hider, I sat very still so no one could even hear me breathe. After the mess downstairs was cleaned up, dad came up to find me. He found me shaking and scared. He picked me up, hugged me and kissed me and told me it was ok. Then he cleaned me up since I had chili mac on my legs, body, head.. Mom kissed me too and said it was ok. I was so relieved . Now I know that mom and dad love me even when I make mistakes. I am a very lucky and blessed kitty to have my mom and dad. Spot, I am not so sure about.
Spot has been such a nusiance this week with his mustache poll. Which look will win, Charlie Chaplin, the handle bar, or no mustache? He loves his bowler and Charlie Chaplin mustache. He looks like he has a black bug on his lip or something. He thinks he is all that and more. So, I have kept him on the run this week. Two can play the chase game. I came from the hood you know. When your one of many kitties you have to stick up for yourself and let them know your there. Let's just say that Spot knows I am here- here to stay.
That's my round up for this week. I plan to spend all weekend napping and chasing Spot. Have a great weekend everyone.
