Running for the Cure


Those of you who have received my spiffy new business cards may have noticed my job titles are: "Critic, Philanthropist and Entrepreneur". Although it may seem by my blog that I am on permanent vacation, this is not the case! Here is my latest philanthropic adventure " Run for the Cure" which took place Sunday October 5th in Centennial Park, Moncton.
Some of you may wonder how on earth a naked feline can participate in such an event, especially with such cold weather! First, I am no ordinary Sphynx and second, I have the right gear. Yes I said it! It is not my athletic prowess, but my clothes which gave me the edge.
I contacted Nike and Adidas for some custom sneakers but their translators did not speak "Meow". Imagine! So I went barefoot with a cable knit turtleneck underneath a parka vest with a fur edged, removable hood. It is faux fur of course.
I decided to warm up on the race track near the water park. My warm up exercises consisted of pouncing on leaves and kicking around a soccer ball mostly.
I did talk mom into letting me climb a tree! Although I am very spoiled my people encourage me to do "cat like" things so I will stay grounded. I did not realise my turtleneck, parka and freshly pedicured nails would also help me stay grounded! This picture was taken just before I fell out of the tree!
There I am way, way up in the upper left corner of the picture. I would like to have posted a photo of me falling to give my fans proof that I do my own stunts. Unfortunately, daddy put the camera down to catch me. He is an excellent catcher! Next time I climb a tree this high I will wear my safety harness and ropes.
Before the run I had some power bars (okay, I ate some ants, flies and such) so I had lots of energy! Where is the start line?

I was going to borrow Haiden's stroller again but figured that would be cheating. Instead, I had my people put me in my "Snugly"so they could do all the walking while I took in the sights. Here I am all bundled up and ready to go!
This is my friend "Bosco" who did all the walking himself!
Here I am posing by some decorations.

I was especially taken with the pink feather boas people were wearing!

Well it was a long hard day so I ended the run with a cat nap. Someone thought it would be funny if they folded my ears into my turtleneck during my snooze and snapped a picture. Hilarious. My people are so immature sometimes.

Well that is a wrap!
