Hilary said...

I am always thinking I could/should learn something from my cats.
That is one relaxed, and gorgeous, kitty.

DJan said...

How can it make me relax just by looking at Oliver? It's amazing! He is definitely perfection...

Country Gal said...

Oliver and our Harley are so much alike in the relaxating department lol
Have a great relaxing day yourself !

Deb said...

They are our little yoga teachers. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x4

Oh I just love ginger tabby's. Oliver is such a pretty boy!

Sharon said...

If only my problems were as small as Oliver's!

Ginny said...

OMG he is too cute for his own good!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

There are just times that we all need to be more like cats.... Cats can really relax, can't they? What a cutie pie!!!!!!

Thanks for sharing your precious Oliver, Jo.
Hugs,
Betsy

LOL, Oliver is definitely the definition of relaxed!

Antiques And Teacups said...

Cats are so incredible...even our scaredy cat Tinker lounges away in perfect abandon. We do need to learn from them. Thanks for sharing Oliver's nap!

Oh Jo, Oliver is the poster-boy image of relaxation. Yes we should all take lessons from Oliver.

Jill said...

He is so cute! Looking very content.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I'll say it again, Oliver is one of my favorite cats--He is just so darn handsome!!! I'd love to just relax with him....

Cass @ That Old House said...

Oh yes! I need lessons from dear Oliver in de-stressing!

He's so adorable. Isn't it amazing how extraordinarily comfortable animals can look when they are napping? so cute -- much cuter than adult humans!

thanks for your encouragement on today's post. Yes, the wedding will go on, and what's not done will only be noticed by ME! :-)

I will hit a point where I'll say, "enough!" and be done with it. I just haven't gotten there yet!
Best ... Cass

Star said...

Lovely pictures Jo. It amazes me how cats can be comfortable in such awkward places! When Patch comes on the bed with me, she sometimes sleeps right near the edge; so near that if I moved, she would fall right off. Daft, I call it.
Oliver is beautiful.

Roxie said...

It's good to be king!

Betsy said...

The little stray kitten Marmalade in my backyard looks like it will grow up to look just like your cat! Adorable!

myomyohi said...

Oh my goodness. Oliver is adorable, and quite at peace with himself. If only I could be more like him.

Thanks for sharing. Oliver made me smile.

Babs said...

That Oliver is such a cutie. It's funny to see how relaxed they get when asleep.
How is your knee? Didn't you have a bit of trouble with it some time back?
Hope you are up and about and enjoying this Summer weather,
Babs

Oliver manufactures his own brand of Prozac! Master of relaxation! Mary

Pastor Sharon said...

Kitty yoga never looked so good!

George said...

Oh, if only I could relax like that!

Mary Lou said...

Does Oliver snore?? So funny and a good lesson!

Chip "Rocket Man" Allen said...

Our black Lab, Sam would sleep like that and snore like a freight train. Folks told us that meant the critter was content. If he had been any more content he would have melted!

Does Oliver have a loud purr? Somehow, I think he might! Such a handsome fellow!

There is a reason why we are keepers of cats! I love your Wilde and Carroll quotations.

He is one of my favorite cats on the blog. I love it see what he is up to now. Resting of course and doing it very well.
