Oliver gets visitors

Our daughter Laura stopped over Saturday with their 2 dogs, Sophie and Reminton. She said it was time for them to meet our cat.
You can see that Oliver isn't too happy about this idea! What you can't see is how the dogs reacted. Although they are way bigger than Oliver, they weren't going to go near him as he arched his back and hissed!


The girls decided it would work better to hold Oliver and let the dogs come up and check him.


Sophie decided Oliver wasn't so bad. Reminton still wasn't too sure and Oliver really didn't appreciate the whole situation.

Here Laura is comforting Oliver after that traumatic event! In the end, they all survived and we had fun watching them interact.

Love the new look!
Oliver is too funny... I always think it's a hoot when a small cat can scare a much bigger dog. Even in the last photo, Oliver seems to be looking daggers at the dogs. LOL
Almost time to go see Andy! Woot!

That's funny! I don't know what Peka would do, although when we adopted him the paperwork said that they found him surrounded by dogs, so I'm thinking it wouldn't be a good thing. He actually had a bite injury in his shoulder area that required surgery from it.

How long will you be visiting with Andy?

Yes, you DID have a similar event to mine. Poor kitty, being invaded like that!

When Bree was little we had a cat (Mr. Randi) and a dog (Mr. Monty). They played together all the time. Lots of aggrevating each other too. smile I have lots of good memories watching them.

The photos of your girls and the pets are so cute.

Hugs!

Mari,

Our older cat, Max would handle anything you literally brought his way with grace and much humility. He tolerated anything.

Now Moo our youngest brat cat, it's her way or the proverbial highway. She doesn't want anything to do with any other creature sharing her mansion with more than enough room to spare.

I would tell her however, she would have to make room for Oliver to visit. He is just too darn cute for words.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Looked like everyone made it through the meeting. Cute.

It's amazing how those cats can rule over the dogs. I still haven't ever seen Remington.

Such a cute post. I love dogs and cats. And the girls are beautiful!

I'm just too glad there wasn't a cat and dog fight inside your house. It would have been disastrous!

First off Mari, I do love your new blog layout and colors!! It's very warm and welcoming.

Then....poor Oliver. What a traumatic day for him. The dogs tho, are darling and charming too. What a great share for us today. I enjoyed it. Now, Oliver can tell all his other kitty-friend in the 'hood just how brave he was!!!!

I'm glad to see you didn't have to call the EMT's out! No one was harmed in the forming of a new frienship!

I didn't know Laura got another dog! How cute. I love Sophie! She is the reason I would love a boxer!

Mari,

I would love you have you become a follower of my blog as you've been so kind to stop by and leave such wonderful comments.

If you get a chance stop on by and stay for some coffee or hot tea. The choice is yours?

Awww, Oliver is just TOO cute. I'm a cat person, yeah, I'm a little biased towards Oliver. He looks like such a Sweetie!

Cindy said...

Rebekah said...

Poor Olive- such trauma! lol

I didn't notice how much Oliver looks so much like Salsa! interesting...

Our cats have not yet met a dog yet...

I hope to get a dog when we own a place with a yard...that'll be fun for them! lol

Aw, poor little Oliver ~ They do have a way of protecting themselves, don't they.
