Every so often, Oliver insists on being featured on the blog. He’s a jealous cat and he demands attention. When our little dog Max was still with us, Ollie DID NOT LIKE HIM.
Poor little dog, the cat would sneak up on him and nip him on the back of the leg. Such a beast.
So….in order to not get nipped in the back of the leg, I present an update on Oliver.
There…hopefully this will satisfy him for a time.
You can’t see my laptop in this image can you?
I CAN’T SEE IT AND I’M SITTING IN FRONT OF IT!
Those of you with cats know how it goes…turn the computer on and out of nowhere the cat appears. He demands his rightful place on the keyboard. We negotiate, I clear him lots of nice space on my desk. No.
After I gently nudge him to the edge of the laptop ten times, he is offended when I restrict him to the floor. We’re both tired and frustrated. I will eat chocolate, he will have to make due with a bug he just found on the floor.
Because I don’t know quite how to reach my blogger friend niasunset, I am posting this on my blog. She LOVES cats and kittens and is kind to all animals.
I made this silly picture for you my friend. I hope you enjoy it. Enjoy your visit with your Grandson!
The dog has been sick for a week and Oliver has been very respectful of him. No stalking Max, no jumping on Max, no wrapping Max in a headlock.
Occasionally Oliver passes the time hoping for an insect to be drawn to the light bulbs in our lamp. He will be so happy when Max is feeling better.
Tossed a glance out the window one morning
And what did my wondering eyes see? Certainly not Santa Claus.
A young bobcat, perhaps only twenty ? Thirty?,feet from our door. It played with a flying grasshopper for a moment and then jumped into some bushes at the base of a palm tree.
