Even My Cat has Olympic Fever

I’ve mentioned on a few occasions that I’m loving the Olympics. In fact, my whole family is enthralled with the events. Here’s my cat, Atticus, watching tennis on the telly.

I think I need to take him to theย optometrist since he gets right in front of the TV to see all the action.

    Clever kitty! Next week is going to be such an anti-climax with no Olympics to watch…

  4. Novroz says:

    lol …are you sure he is interested with Tennis? or maybe he just want to follow the ball’s movement ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Ha ha ha, too funny. Glad he’s enjoying the action, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. That is SO funny – our dogs tend to prefer action movies ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Robyn says:

    You are all watching the TV so why can’t Kitty Cat! Adorable!

    • TBM says:

      I don’t mind his watching, but he has a habit of blocking the part of the screen that has the most action. His timing is perfect and I missed many of the good points.

      • scrapydo says:

        I know what you mean. Trompie sits on my lap and when I am interested in the TV he keeps on putting his head in front of me. I have to look to one side and then to the other side

      • TBM says:

        Oh, I’ve been there. It’s amazing what we do for our animals.

    Just don’t let him get this carried away…imagine watching the shotput….

    • TBM says:

      That is just too cute. Atticus needs to pick up his game. He just watches. We’ve had boxing on lately, but he doesn’t show any interest.

    Too cute! Maybe your kitty can get those cat’s eye contact lenses. Surely that’s why they make those, right?

  12. Fergiemoto says:

    Adorable! I have heard that sitting too close to the tv will not damage your eyes, but will cause fatigue and eye strain – but that’s for human eyes – I haven’t heard anything for cats. (If Atticus needs corrective lenses, it would be the first cat I know of to wear glasses!)

  13. Caroline says:

    Excellent pictures.
    Mine jumped at the TV the other day when there was a documentary on birds. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Madhu says:

    Cool Atticus ๐Ÿ˜†

  15. Cool cat aaand cool name! ๐Ÿ™‚ It seems that he’s the athletic sort of cat, lol. Or maybe Atticus prefers watching the action instead of being in action. ๐Ÿ˜€
