Brother Oliver is the Best!

My Disciples,

As you know, many things in life have become more challenging for Me. The Guardians have been great about making sure I am comfortable, happy, and fully snackified, and they’ve also been brushing Me nightly because grooming Myself is much more difficult than it used to be. Still, the brush is no substitute for a good old fashioned kitty bath. Fortunately, Brother Oliver has been volunteering to keep Me clean as only a kitty can.

I didn’t even ask Brother Oliver to do this. He just started doing it on his own one day while we were snuggling on the couch. I can’t express how grateful I am to My High Priest for helping Me out with such an intimate task. He is very thorough too!

Brother Oliver is very thorough. I am so grateful to him.

The only complaint I have is that I think Brother O is forgetting who should use whom for a pillow. Take a look at what happened after yesterday’s grooming session.

I think Brother Oliver forgot who should be the pillow.

To tell you the truth though, it actually felt kind of comforting to have Brother Oliver resting over Me, so I decided to let it go, just this once. Although, it did kind of make Me wonder if all that grooming was simply to make sure he had a clean pillow to lay on… Nah… I’m sure that wasn’t it. Brother Oliver really is the best.

    Brother Oliver is the best! Perhaps Brother Oliver had not considered using you as a pillow until he noticed how cozy you looked or else he just wanted to keep you warm? You have much love and support from your family as well as all of us here reading your blog : )

    Brother O. is my personal favorite and he’s given me yet another reason to admire him in this post. Though it’s heart-breaking to see Otis struggle, it’s great to know that his friends are always there for him. Good job, Brother O.!

    Brother Oliver is a very caring friend. You are very lucky to be so beloved, Leader Otis. You are very kind to allow Brother Oliver to rest after he was done. His tongue must be quite tired after doing double duty! Both he and the Guardians are doing a wonderful job in helping you with your daily ablutions. You are just as handsome and well-groomed as ever.
