To stave off the boredom of island life, the cats have developed their own culture, included a unique sport called "Synchronized Grooming" which they are promoting as a potential Cato Lympic* Sport for the 2013 Cato Lympics on Catalina Island. Originally they tried synchronized swimming but they didn't like it, salt was a major problem, and it was deemed too scary for broadcast to aquaphobic cat audiences.

*Feline lawyers suggested this name to avoid trouble with the litigious Olympic Committee.

Skr: Feline leukemia would be a tragedy if introduced into an island population like that
