The Missing Oliver

I had a root canal today. It was delightful. It actually wasn’t that bad considering what they are doing to your mouth during the process. But I’m not one to mess around with medical treatment so I had my crown fitted today as well.

That means five injections to keep my mouth numb. Having a numb face, for some reason, makes me groggy. I’ve pretty much been ready for a nap since I woke up this morning. At last, at 3 p.m., it was time.

I called for the cats. Obi came for a real, actual snuggle.

No Oliver.

I woke up a while later and called the grey kitten. No Oliver.

The Boy came home from work. Oliver appeared to check out our dinner. After dinner I laid back down and called for Oli. No Oliver.

I have hardly seen Oliver since my family left Cheyenne. I know exactly why. Almost the second they left town, the heat wave broke. It has been in the 80s for two days. And Oliver? He has some quality time to make up on the upstairs cat shelf.


I don’t know why he’s straddling a pillow.


It’s Thunder Thursday! Here is the newest addition to Kelly’s family. A polydactyl tortie who hasn’t been named yet. Any suggestions?

  1. Creamie (because the color of her nose is a little be crème =^.^=)

  2. At this rate she’ll be Little Bit permanently. At least Mustang Sally has calmed enough to lay on my lap for nap time. I’m kind of rooting for Flat Tire as those little polydactyl feet look like flats, but we’ll see.

    • I see nothing wrong with Little Bit.

      • I don’t have a problem with Little Bit, either. But we settled on Harley Quinn, after the Joker’s sidekick in Batman. Can you tell there’s a 7 year old Boy in my house? Captain Jack and Harley Quinn. Though I did think her face has a kind of harlequin pattern.

  3. Oli’s behavior is completely unacceptable. Assisting with medically necessary naps is one of his core responsibilities.

    I have no ideas for a name for the tortie, but that’s a great picture of her.

  4. Awwww…such a cute kitty!

  5. I’ve always been partial to Freyja.. Maybe Oliver thought he was doing you a favor by staying far far away from your ouchie bits..
