St. Paddy's Day

We decided ta celebrate today by repeating the post from our first time all together on St Paddy's Day (2011).  Marley was still new and small then, and we had a CONTEST!  It went as follows...
 -----------------------------------

In honor of this glorious day, we decided to make up a celebration event (well, The Big Thing did, but we agreed to it).  We are calling it "Kitty Headbutt"or "Kitty Bumpercars".  It works like Sumo Wrasslin.  The object is ta shove the opponent off the field of battle, but it has ta be all 4 paws.  The difficulty is that ya have ta keep yer nose touchin the surface...

Here is the Green Field of Battle!  Its Skeeter's Gizzy Quilt.  In honor of the event, TBT transferred it to Marley (orange cat to orange cat)!
First, we tried it out in pairs.
 
Marley an Iza:  Iza won...
Marley and Ayla:  Marley won...

The Iza an Ayla contest was over too fast ta take a picture of...  Iza is the clear favorite for the Final.  The bookies will hardly even take odds against her!

So we came ta the grand battle.  All 3 head-to-head.  There was some manuverin fer position...
To the crowd's shock, Iza accidently stood up ta see where Ayla was, so she furr-fitted!
That left Marley an Ayla.  Ayla swerved an manuvered...
But it was too late.  She already had 3 paws off the mat and a firm headbutt defeated her.  Marley wins!  He celebrates his victory with an upraised roar to the crowd...
And is adorned with the Green Cape of Victory!
After the event, all were refreshed with a fine dinner of Duck Stinky Goodness!
