"Furry hard!"

Cat curling is not just an Olympic sport (previously), it's also a fun thing to play at home! And because no good post is complete without dogs, please enjoy cats and dogs just trying to get along.

Ah, I see at the bottom that I can go to view it on YouTube. I generally watch all videos posted to MetaFilter in the pop-out window.

I like that a not insignificant portion of the "cats and dogs" video amounts to:

"What's in the box?"

"Pain."

Being against cat videos would be absolutely in character for the IOC.

Cats are used to being swept after, but being swept before is an innovation...

So there is a way to get a cat to go where you want it to go

It’s all good fun till a cat gets wedged in a scanner.

Damn my stupid tiled floors. I'm going to have to get smooth engineered wood flooring so I can play too. I don't think the kitties will allow me to push them across the grout gaps....

Cat posts CAN be complete without dogs.

I promise that I am saying this of my own volition and that my cat is not currently in my lap with claws out, watching me type.

1) I am a furry.
2) I have actually done curling even though I live in the US.
3) Cats don't belong on ice.
4) I want to see fursuiting curling happen at some point even though the fur will get on the ice and knock the rocks off track.

Also "Furry Hard" is a t-shirt that I need to make at some point.
