Mysterious Delivery Part III: The Cozy Knight

Disciples of Otis,

Brother Oliver here. When we left off yesterday, Brother Henry and I were marveling over the amazing blankets that Christine and her family had sent. As we did so, we realized that there was a beautiful blue blanket we had overlooked. This one was for the Guardians. I was excited because it meant the Guardians would be able to keep their laps warmer for me to sit on!

There was even a blanket to keep the Guardians warm for me!

Brother Henry and I decided to spread our two blankets out on the bench below the front window. Brother Henry immediately started practicing the art of Ninja Focus, concentrating on the frilly edge of his blanket.

We spread our blankets below the front window. Brother Henry practiced his Ninja Focus.

At this point the smaller Guardian entered the living room. She was very excited to see all of the beautiful blankets. She came over and scooped me up, blanket and all.

The Guardian scooped me up in the blanket.

As I rode around on the Guardian’s shoulder, I heard Brother Henry say, “Now there’s something you don’t see every day…” When I asked him what he was talking about he said, “You look like an overstuffed kitty burrito!”

Brother Henry said I looked like an overstuffed kitty burrito.

Just as I was about to protest Brother Henry’s assessment of the kitty burrito as being “overstuffed”, I heard Thomas’s voice say, “OH MY GOSH! WHAT ARE THESE!?” I looked down to see him standing by the rest of the blankets which had been piled together. I said, “Disciple Christine sent us all blankets, Thomas!” Now even more excited Thomas said, “You mean there’s one in here for ME!?”, and then he started searching through the pile.

Thomas got excited and started searching the pile for his blanket.

At that point, the Guardian turned to set me down. I lost sight of Thomas for a moment and when I looked back toward the blanket pile he was nowhere to be found. The Guardian went to the pile and pulled her blue blanket out of the stack. She then sat down on the couch and spread the blanket on her lap. I took the opportunity to join her.

The Guardian sat on the couch with her blanket. I joined her.

After sitting for a few moments in toasty bliss, I heard a noise come from behind the couch. It kind of sounded like a contented moan. I climbed up on the back of the couch and looked behind it. That is when I discovered where Thomas had gone.

This is what I saw when I looked behind the couch.

I jumped down in front of the couch to get a look from the other side. When I peeked under the couch, I saw Thomas looking at me with wide eyes. He said, “Brother Oliver! I never knew wiener dog fur was so soft and warm! I am sooooooo cozy!” Apparently, he thought the blanket was made from real wiener dog fur.

Thomas was amazed at how soft and warm the wiener dog blanket was.

I decided not to disabuse our resident knight of his newfound belief that wiener dog fur is warm and soft. He seems to worry about the little dogs so much, I figure that his associating them with cozy comfort might be a positive thing. I left him to his coziness, and returned to the Guardian’s lap. I looked over toward the window and noticed that Brother Henry had ninja focused himself all the way to sleep. That seemed like a brilliant idea to me, so I followed suit and quickly dozed off with feelings of love, warmth, and gratitude filling my feline heart.

So Sayeth Brother Oliver

  11. Nothing like cuddling up in a warm blanket on a soft lap. Or is it a warm lap on a soft blanket? Either way, there’s nothing like the warm feelings of love and contentment! Think these blankets were a fantastic gift. Sharing the warmth and love will be even better now.

  12. Aww – love that pic of Brother Oliver wrapped up in his blanket on the Guardian’s shoulder. When I saw the title, I thought Thomas had finally decided to sit on one of the Guardian’s laps, or curled up beside them like Priestess Jen and Miss P. do.

    These gifts make my eyes leak, but with happy tears. Happy tears to see all of mew enjoying love and kindness, especially after all of the loss mew have experienced the last few months. My tears are also happy ones to see mew still here with us, carrying on the Leader’s mission with the same quiet dignity that made him such a special and mancat and Mama Cat a truly dignified Queen.

  14. Disciple Christine, you don’t know how much joy you have spread world wide. Smiles. Smiles. Thanks

  15. Oh Sir Thomas….the bliss of one of those pawsome fleece blankies is not to be missed…so,purrleased you like yours
