FUN MONDAY - SPORTS




more participants here with Heather's Recipes


Heather proposed this topic : Sports. More specifically, the sports team that you are rabid about and make you cry tears of joy when they win and tears of sorrow when they lose. And on the flip side, I also want to hear about the teams you love to hate and why you hate them so much .... And if you don't like any sports at all, I don't know what to say to you. Tell us something else you are impassioned about.

I am not a sports fan at all and even less when it comes to sports which attracts hundreds of people in a stadium where they all behave more or less histerical and loose minds. I live in Europe where football (soccer) creates the most of hysterie. People get absolutely crazy and even kill each other if they are not for the same team. We had a game here in Brussels in the Heysel Stadium where 39 people lost their lives because they were trampled to death.

The only sport I like to follow is on TV together with my cat Arthur. He loves Tennis, Golf and even football (soccer)

When he watches a Tennis match I see him following the ball with his head which he turns left, right, left, right. If the ball falls down he would look on the floor to see if it is there. With football it is the same. But when it comes to golf then he really gets excited ! He follows the ball and the swings and beats with his tail and when the ball finally falls in a hole he jumps on the TV unit and looks underneath. He has some "technical" difficulties to squeeze himself under the cabinet because he is quite big (not fat he would say) When he can't find any ball there he is very disappointed but ready for the next game.

So I support cat Arthur when he watches sports but so far he didn't cry tears of joy or tears of sorrow when he couldn't find the ball. Only I have tears of laughter .

This is Arthur watching sports on TV



A fervent supporter !



Looking for balls

LOL! I love that first picture of him sitting watching TV. All he needs is a cold beer and some crisps .....

Aw, Arthur is too cute! I have never had a cat that watched TV...I'me sure you do get hours of entertainment from all your felines!

I'd say watching them is your favorite sport!

It looks so content..doesn't it?

My fav. sport is swimmimg.Although most cats don't like getting wet they can still swim. They love running water.

Do they have a cat fountain?

I love it! the first picture of Arthur on the couch is great! And i love when my cat notices the TV, but it is usually only if there is some kind of animal on there!

Thanks for playing this week!

Yes, watching sports on TV, can be extremely exhausting.

MommyWizdom said...

Lol, that's funny! I like the tail thumping! You're a good "sport" for supporting his habit. Happy Monday!

I think cats watching tennis is a very entertaining way to pass the time - they can be so captivating tying to get that little ball.
What a great way to spend an afternoon!

Kitty cat sports are the best, I think.

I am always amazed at the intense rivalries of the Europe sports fanatics. I think it is the same in South America too.

Nice photos of your "sports fan" feline.

That is absolutely too darn funny.
Don't know why, but every time I visit here, I start sneezing.
