The Basket Incident- Part II

My Disciples,

When we left off yesterday, Brother Oliver was trying to convince Brother Henry to let him join him in the basket. Well… you can guess what happened next.

Basket Incident 06

Yep. This is what happened next.

As The Brothers sat wedged next to one another in the basket, Brother Henry looked visibly agitated. In as calm a voice as he could manage, Brother Henry said, “Brother Oliver, don’t you feel a little… I don’t know… cramped?”

Basket Incident 07

Brother Henry was annoyed. He asked Brother Oliver if he felt cramped.

Brother Oliver said, “No. I don’t feel cramped at all. This basket is the best, don’t you think?”

Basket Incident 08

Brother Oliver said that he didn’t feel cramped and that the basket was great.

Still trying to remain calm and collected, Brother Henry said, “Seriously, Brother Oliver? You don’t feel like you are squashed up against the side of this basket? You don’t feel like you are squashed up against the side of me?” Brother Oliver said, “Oh, no! Not at all! Look I even have plenty of room to stretch out! Ahhhhhhhhhh! Feels so good!”

Basket Incident 09

Brother Oliver said he had plenty of room, even if he wanted to stretch out.

At this point, I decided to go get a snack. As I left the room, Brother Oliver was still “oohing” and “ahhhhing” as if he was the most comfortable he had ever been. All I heard from Brother Henry was a deep sigh, and it wasn’t a sigh of contentment.

    ROFLOL, that first pic is a classic!!

  2. Oh Bro Henry! What you have to put up with. Hold your ground….ummm…I mean “your basket”….don’t give an inch! So says Savannah

  3. Love the above shot–that’s a whole lotta tabby in one little basket!

  4. Oh lookie, Oliver is showing his big toothy smile in the stretch picture! Hee hee, love it!
    Ya know… there’s a tiny bit of room down there near the brothers combined butts.. I bet you could squeeze in there too, Otis. Don’t you like leaning against the brothers anyway? Surely they won’t mind if you spread out on top there.

    I always enjoy your photos! They certainly do tell a story.

  6. We think there’s still more room to fit another cat in there. If they’re feeling cozy, that is.

  7. Hold on Brother Henry! Your about to be push out of that basket!

    Noooooooooooooooo, it’s another basket-hanger! Have You been watching old episodes of 24 again, Leader Jack….I mean, Otis?

  9. Ha! This looks like our house!

  10. Always room for one more…not! Basket territorial struggles were common between Olde Tiger(who was abdicating the RC position) and current RC Cat during RC training and transition period….even when 2 baskets were offered, they both wanted the same one…Olde Tiger said confidentially that the extra furry warmth made his old bones feel better
