a year of Oliver!

It was a year ago today that I took my first picture of Oliver. I don't remember how long prior to this picture that he'd been around. Initially, I had assumed he was one of the many neighborhood pet cats who roam through our yard. In time it became clear that Oliver had no home.

Seeing Oliver curled up under the bench during a
summer rain inspired me to build him a shelter.

 Oliver shares his home and food with his family!  Jan 12, 2012
I'm hopeful the second year of Oliver has many more blessings to offer for all of us! Maybe it will be the year Oliver finds his inside forever home. Oliver is such a sweet loving cat. He's playful, silly and a complete love bug. He certainly made his way into my heart and seems quite comfortable there!


  1. A whole year already? Wow.

    Love the pic of him snuggled into you the best, that says it all. :-)

  2. I am so glad I found you blog a while back. I too have found a place in my heart for Oliver and all you furry family. You are a great guy and Oliver is lucky to have found the right yard to stop in!

  3. awwww - that is lovely!!! Mom loves the picture of him sprawled on top of the house you made. THANK YOU for giving him a chance and the same opportunity to his family!!! We give you 28 paws up!!!

  4. I cannot believe a whole year has gone by! It is a nice collection. Better print some out in real photos. I have a "physical" cat album. Old fashioned or I am just old! I hope Oliver has many more annual photo collections.


  5. Oh, I hope Oliver will come in for good! He looks like such a nice cat. And four paws up to you for TNR-ing the ferals - I know it must be a very anxious time for you.

  6. Mom has those silly leaky eyes she sometimes gets when she sees dear things like this.

  7. Sweet Oliver! You look so sleek and sassy now, you certainly chose the right People to adopt.
    We are wishing your Dad "Good Luck" with the TNR!
