Slice of Life Tuesday: The Olympics 24/7 – kitten style!

Living with a kitten is like watching the Olympics 24/7.  Here’s a slice of this experience from the time I woke up until the time I left for work…the athlete in question is our own Gepetto:


Woken up from his (short) night time nap, he races down the stairs, leaping to the windowsill, jumping over books and coats left in his path:  Hurdles 

Spotting a balled up sock, he attacks it with great gusto, rolling across the floor and pinning said sock down not once  or twice, but many times: Wrestling

Noticing a stray shoe sitting at the edge of the stairs, he’s off, riding it to the very bottom: Luge

Spying a foot,  ready for its boot, it’s time to attack, attack, attack: Boxing

Catching sight of a red and yellow cup sitting quietly on the kitchen counter, he leaps over a chair to land right next to it: High Jump

Next, for reasons known only to him, it’s on to the granite island to skate and pirouette across its surface: Figure Skating/Ice Dancing

Then it’s into the sink, unbeknownst to him now filled with soapy water…Swimming???

Unfortunately, I couldn’t wait for the next event… it was off to work for me.

  1. We have a book week coming up with the theme “Healthy Mind in a Healthy Body”, connecting sports, reading and writing. I would like to use your slice as an example of creative approach to the sports topic. It was fun to read.

  2. I think this is a post my students will love. I can’t wait to share it. Such a creative approach to your kitten’s antics. He deserves an action shot next time!
