Cat-O-Lympics - Extreme Climbing event.


We have entered the Extreme Climbing event hosted by The House of Cats.



Flynn: I have been practicing hard over the last four years to be at my peak for this year's Winter Olympics. Eric waits lower down for me to give me advice on my technique.

Sometimes I have had a slight wobble on my dismount....

But I now have overcome that...

and feel purrfectly at home up in the heights of the old Oak tree.

Eric: I prefer the lower tree discipline rather than the extreme climb....

although with the right incentive, I will climb higher.
