Daily Photo: Time For Studio Wrestling!

The match begins!

For tonight’s championship match—in one corner we have Sir Jelly of Bean, 10 pounds of pure charm, a purr that shakes the walls and terminally cute. In the other corner we have his brother, Giuseppe Basil Verdi, 13 pounds of solid black intensity, a voice that can shatter a crystal chandelier and a face that charms the whiskers right off the lady cats—he’s wrestling tonight for Mlle. Daisy Emerald Marguerite, far away in Kingston but no doubt watching her mancat on international TV. They are known opponents and the walls will tremble when they begin!

Giuseppe has pulled his famous move—throwing himself down on his back so he can use all four paws to flip his opponent over his head, but not after delivering a solid right hook! But Sir Jelly holds his ground and lays down on Giuseppe’s face! Who will win?!

I’m not the only one who remembers studio wrestling, am I? What’s funny is how their mother is ignoring them in the top photo…see more episodes of studio wrestling!

    Oh yes – we have regular wrestling matches at our house too. It’s usually some combination of the boys – Ginger, KC, Boyzie and Travis – but occasionally Sugar will get involved for good measure. Zelda is too refined for such hijinx!

      Vicki, Giuseppe and Bean wrestle daily and occasionally the others, but I think it’s so cute when Mimi gets involved.

    Love it, love it, LOVE IT!!! Their elder brothers, Angus and Donal, are FAR more refined, although they do wrestle each other occasionally (ie. daily). They are so evenly matched, though, it’s tough for either of them to get much of an advantage. Usually they wait for Gideon or Bayla to come along as a diversion…. Never a dull moment!!

      Amby, all that kitten stuff–they never grow up, and for cats that’s not a bad thing at all!
