Mama Cat’s Exhibition: Part III- The Big Finish

My Disciples,

When we left off yesterday, Mama Cat had just blown us away with the new move she calls “The Cold Frame Catapult”. She had landed back up on the  the cement wall, and was in a ready stance. Nothing, I mean NOTHING, could have prepared us for the performance that would follow.

As the handler made the next pass with the bird, Mama cat brought her foot down on it, stopping it cold. With an intense look on her face she said, “Stuff just got real!” I heard Brothers Henry and Oliver gasp in unison next to me.

Suddenly, Mama Cat lifted her paw, and with a cry of “FLY LITTLE BIRD!” sent the artificial bird back into the air. Things happened quickly after that.

On the bird’s next pass, Mama shouted, “SUPER WHEELIE!!!”, and scored a direct, two pawed strike on the bird.

As the bird passed again, she seemed to be preparing to jump. I braced Myself for her signature move.

With a shout of “FLYING SQUIRREL!” Mama was airborne. The Brothers and I yowled out loud in approval.

On the next pass, Mama went bipedal. With a piercing yell of “FOREPAWS OF FURY!” she savagely mauled the airborne bird.

On what would be the bird’s final pass, Mama Cat yelled, “POWER POUNCE!” and then lunged forward, pinning the artificial bird to the ground.

Mama got the bird situated in her mouth…

… and then she began a sophisticated ground work routine.

She twisted to her left, executing a roll.

To our amazement, she completed the roll and ended up sitting on her belly. Without losing her grip on the bird, she raised her right forepaw in a show of props to the bird handler!

After giving props to the handler, Mama shifted to a sitting position. She repositioned her mouth on the bird, and we knew the kill was coming.

And there it was! Mama Cat bore down on the bird and put on an intense kill face that likely struck fear into every small animal within a 10 block radius.

Having completed her exhibition, she looked up at us. We were silent for five full seconds and then we went crazy! The Brothers and I ran all around our enclosure yowling and yelling. Mama’s performance had been everything that we hoped and more.

Once we had calmed down, I congratulated Mama Cat on a gold medal worthy performance. She thanked Me, and seemed very pleased by the praise.

I don’t know when the next full Catlympics will happen, but Mama Cat has certainly done an amazing job of keeping the spirit alive. When the games do come around again, It is very clear that she will be the kitty to beat.
