The end of an era

Most of you know that whenever Alaina comes over, one of her first things to do, is to find Oliver and hold him. I'm afraid that is about to change.
Oliver is actually Heathers cat and she is taking him to live with them.  I must admit that we're going to miss having him around, but this is going to be tough on Alaina.
Here's a few pictures of her with him from this weekend.







He's pretty long suffering.  I always have to smile at the disgusted look on his face, and the joy on hers.  I guess she'll have to go visit him at Uncle Andrew and Aunt Heathers place!

These photos make me smile! That last photo says it all. I hope Heather will share some photos in the future!

Ohh, those photos really take me back to my daughter as a toddler, and my in-laws equally long suffering cat, a marmalade tom, named Fritz. The cat had been my brother in-law's, but he'd left him with his parents. My daughter Annie just fell in love with him, and lugged him around, cuddled, kissed and petted him. She put him in her doll's carriage.. and through it all, Fritz would tolerate it.. but you'd catch sight of the same expression you see on Oliver's face. I think Alaina will treasure these photographic memories when she grows up.

They really are best buddies. I am sure that Alaina will love to see him at her Aunt Heather's house. I hope they aren't living too far away.

Austin is like that with the dog "cousins". He just can't let them alone when they're here.

I love the look of triumph on Alaina and the look of total disgust on Oliver. (like, when is this going to end!). lol

Sally said...

awwww sweet Alaina! She really loves Oliver; it's written all over her little face. Yes, I suppose Heather and Andrew need to be ready for visits from Alaina! :)

Well they make a great combo photo wise!! I am sure that Oliver will be happy, even if Alaina isn't so! xx

What sweet photos! Maybe she needs to help you pick out a new kitten?!

Bethany Carson said...

Haha...I wonder if Oliver will be looking forward to her visits...

Glad he takes the lovings patiently--we had a sweet cat with a long suffering disposition when I was a little girl, and we loved him dearly.

Alaina has one of the sweetest smiles!

So sweet.
Guess that's one way to get the niece to visit.. entice her with the cat :)

Yes, it looks as though Oliver may enjoy the new arrangement. Lol

Such sweet photos though. Hope they'll be "reunited" many times in the future. Or maybe Alaina needs her own pet?? ;)

Those pictures are great. I'm sure she will have many chances to visit him at her Auntie and Uncle's house :)

Mari said...

Ahaha I love these pictures. While Alaina is enjoying, Oliver's suffering. His face has so much suffering :)))

Jenny said...

Oh my. That second picture nearly finished me. The look on Alaina's face! Oliver is thinking: YESSSSSSSS!!!

Funny how things like that change in our homes. Our cats are like that too and have been something our oldest daughter misses. She often comes over just to visit with them.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

What a sweet cat I know you will get one of your very own now???

Karen said...

Great pictures, Mari. I'm wondering too, if there's a kitty in Alaina's future?

Betsy Brock said...

Yep, I vote for a new kitten for you, too! Rescue one from the shelter. It's can be your RAK. haha.

Cherdecor said...

Oh my! Oliver is as long as Alaina! She is going to miss him for sure.

So sweet, Mari! It's amazing how resilient kitties are when being handled by toddlers. Hope Alaina gets to visit with him often.
