Brother Oliver’s Big Reveal

People and fur people who like The Leader Otis,

It’s Thomas. Today we bring you the first image in a new photographic series by our very own Brother Oliver. He has given me the honor of introducing the new series because… well…. because I helped. You’ll see. Anyway, here’s how Brother Oliver describes his latest work.

“My latest work seeks to portray the essence of bravery, chivalry, valor, and raw, unbridled handsomeness. In short, I have attempted to capture gallantry in its purest form, and I think I have succeeded. Today I bring you the first image in my new ‘Whiskered Gallantry’ series. I call this one ‘Face of the Knight’, and I think you will recognize the model.”

See! It’s me! I was so excited when Brother Oliver….WHAT? WHAT DID YOU SAY BROTHER OLIVER?… JUST LET THEM LOOK AT THE PICTURE?…Oh, right. Sorry.

  1. Oh, those whiskers! *swooning*

    • I particularly liked the “swoosh” of his whiskers with his right whiskers pointing down and his left ones pointing up. I want him to teach me how to do that! πŸ™‚ – Brother Oliver

  2. Very Knightly Sir Thomas…kerplop ….oh so embarrassing…I tripped over my scratcher rushing to view your image on Moms big monitor…sigh

  3. very handsome, mancatly – and oh those whiskers!!

  4. RC Cat is totally enthralled ( She says “See, elegance is not lost!”)

    Think you should change the title to whiskered handsomeness

  7. I think your whiskers are even longer than mine πŸ™‚

  8. What a beautiful cat! A baby seal ain’t got nothing on your whiskers Thomas πŸ™‚

  9. I love it love it love it! I wish I could kiss that sweet little forehead! But I won’t try, don’t want you to lose your stuff. Great work Oliver!

  10. Well done, Brother Oliver. Your stunning self-portraits, and now this — you really are the world’s greatest kitty photographer. Perhaps I’m being fanciful, but in your picture of Sir Thomas, I see not only gallantry and of course handsomeness, but also relief and joy. To paraphrase his song for Mama Cat: “SAFE! SAFE! SAFE! I FINALLY FEEL SAFE! SAFE! SAFE!”

    • I think you’re right, Rhiannon. I think that look is in Thomas’s eyes almost all the time now… except for the odd occasion when he loses his stuff. πŸ™‚ – Brother Oliver

  11. What a portrait! EXCELLENT! Captured what you wanted, for sure!


  12. What pose, those whiskers, those eyes…you must spend a lot of time grooming. Wonderful picture brother Oliver.

  13. As far and photographic subjects go, Thomas is an easy one. He’s so handsome that it’s virtually impossible to take a bad picture of him!
