Introducing Oliver, More Awards and Memes!

My best friend here in Oregon, Susan, sent me a recent picture of her cat named Oliver. Who's Oliver, you ask? Well maybe you should ask Quincy. ;) Oliver is Quincy's brother. They are so alike and yet so opposite. When I got Quincy my girlfriend decided to get his brother. I'm going to try to be nice here....so we call Quincy the good looking brother (Quincy was actually a show kitten) and Oliver the not so good looking (with permanent pissed look) brother. His real name is Oliver P.I.S.T. which stands for Personable and Independent Son of Tux (his father). He has a permanent pissed look on his face. When I can I bring Quincy over to Susan's to play with his brother. He seems a bit standoff-ish, more so than Oliver because Oliver lives with dogs. He's toughened up quite a bit. I guess Quincy is a prissy boy. :( I've spoiled him, that's for sure. LOL. I had to share these cute pictures with you all. Here he is!

When we first got them they seemed inseparable....

Look familiar? They MUST have the same genes. :)


Oliver's pissed look....

Oliver and Nick get along well...

And here is their dad, Tux.

Now for more awards and Meme's!

Pearl over at Pearl's Sentimental Journey posted two awards for everyone to take if they wanted and I'm taking advantage of that! :) I remember when I first met Pearl (through blog-land). She had just lost her beloved Mocha (her ferret). I remember the name because my oldest cat is named Mocha and they had the same coloring :) Pearl is such a wonderfully, sweet, genuine person. Her blog is always a pleasure to look at. I also believe she recently acquired a darling little puppy named Cocoa. He's almost too cute to look at! ;) When you have a chance, swing on by to say hi! Thank you, Pearl for the awards!


I also got a meme from sweet, YOUNG, darling Melissa over at Sunbonnet Cottage. Here's how to play it. I'm supposed to open a document or photo folder and choose the 6th folder and then the 6th photo in that folder. Next I was told to post the photo with a description about it and then tag 6 friends to do the same. Here's my photo..and OH, it's me! ;) Seriously, I wasn't trying for me.

Anyway, I remember this day. I took Jim's two girls to a paint your own pottery place and we spent an enjoyable afternoon painting several things. Both his girls are very artistic. Well, the owners brought their dog Ruby into the shop that day. See, wherever I go, I almost always have to take a picture with an animal that is near me. Ruby was very old but she seemed so content just laying there enjoying the company of strangers who came by to show off their artistic talent. Although she didn't move much, she seemed happy. :)

Okay instead of passing this onto specific people, I'd like to keep this one open as well to anyone who would like to play along!

Hope you all are having a wonderful week so far!

Michelle, I love the kitties.. they are so cute and your right, Oliver looks very pissed off in a big way. They are both so cute and I'm sure add a lot of enjoyment for both you and susan. Are you sure they both don't have a touch of "model" Cat in them.. they seem to pose so perfect.

Hannah said...

What adorable pictures! That pissed off look just cracks me up! What type of disposition does he have? Is the look just a front or is a grouchy? What a great picture of you and Ruby!
Congratualtions on your awards... You are so my type of blogging chick! ;)

Have a great day!

Hi Michelle! I love the pictures- especially the one in the sink. Aren't animals wonderful? Thanks so much for the kind comments you left- again- very much appreciated. I am actually in Illinois near Chicago- we have a place in MI which is why there are so many MI pictures. Have a great day!

Hi Michelle,
I saw your post over on Farm Chicks and wanted to let you know that we do pet silhouettes all the time. They're one of our favorite subjects - we've done everything from dogs and cats to hedgehogs and turtles. I'm also just to your north in Vancouver, WA.

dolcechic said...

Awww they are the cutest! I had a siamese cat that loved laying in the sink and playing with the water in fact! Too cute

Congrats on your award, and to the winners :)
