Olympic Dreams!

Here I am practicing for the luge ... or is it the skeleton?
(Did someone tilt the room? Those ornaments must be blu-tacked!)

View from the top. Pretty good technique, though I say so myself!
Negotiating the bend. Nice whisker control and paw positioning!

Note from The Staff. This is now Austin's favourite relaxing and napping place. There will be another elebenty million photos taken of this from different angles until spring comes and we can go outside in the daylight :)

million - lots of mills

  19. lubberly photos Austin! Very athletical. also lurve your little white socks. I too have little white socks that the humans claim are dipped in ice cream. They use this as an excuse to pick me up. Do you have cream filling on your belly too? so insulting. I can only hope your staff treats you with the Olympic Respect you deserve.

  29. Such form! Such style! You are a 10!

    Our mom always said you could have cats or you could have beautiful things, but you couldn't have both. We see your mum has lots of beautiful vases and we hope our mom takes note. We've always told her we weren't the ones jumping up and breaking her things!
