Olympic Doping Scandal ????

We couldn't help seeing the headlines... WIRED news posted the story just today....

" Olympic Doping: The Cat-and-Mouse Game of the Games"


With the Blogosphere's Olympics in full swing, we couldn't help wondering.... what are WE doing to insure our athletes are not utilizing performance enhancing substances in order to propell their efforts to stardom???

Now we admit, there is one event that actually requires doping, and that is "Nippy Face".  But what about beyond that ?  Do our cat-letes blood dope to better handle the heights of the Balance Beam?  Inject steroids to give them an edge in Boxing or TaeKwanDo?  Or even using nip, legal in one cat-egory, but questionable in sports such as Competitive Lounging or Synchronized napping.

Of course, humans are inferior to cats when it comes to athletic skills (except perhaps in swiming and cycling), so it stands to reason that humans would resort to such measures to try to convince themselves otherwise.  But what about cat-to-cat competition? Gato-a-Gato ?  Would one kitty push the envelope, just to be the cover cat on a Friskies box?  Get an endorsement from Petsmart? What lengths would a cat go to...

No accusations have been made, no evidence produced, but what's the O-lympics without a good scandalous witch-hunt?  But know that big cat-er is watching you and none of us want to have to go to the v-e-t for a sticky thing, just to prove our wins were well deserved.

Good Luck O-lympians!  (we'z just kitt-ing)

  1. we didn't cheat - we swears!!! MOL

  2. Nor do we need any purrformance enhancing drugs!m Nip doesn't count!

  3. Ummm, well I may or may not have used nip before other events.

  4. Me neither haven´t been cheating !
    I just used some nip for the nippyface contest *cross my paws*

  5. We are sure all the participants are clean!



  6. Are the participants ready to take pee tests? I hope it doesn't come to that!

  7. We are confident that the contestants are purrfectly clean!!

  8. Cheating is very, very wrong!

  9. I suspect they've ALL been under the influence of the nip at some point, therefor it's a level playing field!

    (oo maybe there are field mice in that playing field!)

    1. Our favorite response... although our Tipp seems to be immune from the effect of nip, the Momma seems to think he is just good at hiding the effects, just like she thought she was when she was in college...(whoops, sorry mom, NOT)

      And any playing field should minimally involve mice!

  10. I can't imagine our cat athletes would cheat.

  11. Nip? We're in! But maybe not if it involves work.

  12. Weee's cheat at competitions :) but never ever the Olympics :)
    Have a greeeaaat Day

  13. Don't worry our furry friends, we'z just been "messin' wit ur heads" We all know that cat's have far more integrity than their humans, and if not, heck, our sneaky skills are so superior, they would never suspect.

    Except for the nippy face... we fall victim to the nippy face... must...keep...working on it....

  14. Cats are above cheating! And catnip is a FOOD group. Every cat knows that! :p
