Introducing Oliver!

You may remember this post from about 3 weeks ago when I told you about having to put our cat to sleep. We had told our kids that when Cleo died, there would be no more animals in the house. After all, we have had 1 dog, 3 cats, 1 dwarf hamster and 3 fish.
However - Heather wasn't happy with that plan and Bob and I found that we were missing having a pet around, too.
So - yesterday we got this adorable little kitten!



His name is Oliver. We were listing different names when Bob mentioned that one and it just fit. He is very friendly and snuggly. We are having a lot of fun, just watching him play and explore. I have a feeling you will be seeing more pictures of him!

He is adorable! Oliver is a perfect name for him, too. Congrats!

I think cats make for better photo ops than dogs because they "pose" and stay still better :-)

Awww, Mari isn't he the cutest? I can't imagine a house without at least one pet! I love dogs, and cats! Loved the pictures you posted.

Oh my goodness, he is soo adorable! I'm looking forward to more pictures of him!

Pat said...

Awww, he definately has the cuddle factor. Do you think he'll become 'Ollie' or will his given name stick. Either way, it's a perfect name.

Lorie said...

have a great weekend.

Mari,

Dwight and I said the same thing when Meeko was with us. The house seemed so empty and silent without him here. Dakota drives me crazy some days, but he is a sweetie. He is already starting to let me know when things aren't quite right and that's why I wanted him...for protection and companionship.

Thanks for the tip on the Spiderwort. That is exactly what it is. I love it. I knew if I posted it that one of my friends would identify it. Thanks so much.

Blessings,
Mary

Jenna says your kitty looks just like her little one, JoJO, that she had to get rid of. The pictures are just way too cute! I know if something happens to our cat we will get another one for sure.

Oh, my word! He's just precious, and Oliver fits him perfectly. You're right, somehow he just looks like an Oliver. I love the picture of him in the crock.

I love cats and Oliver is just adorable. My Mum has a cat and Catarina loves playing with him. But my husband doesn't want any cats and I don't want dogs. So we have two fish!
