Behold Clovis

How to dry a sweater or cool off a cat.

Behold Clovis.

Asleep on my wet sweater.

 On the picnic table in the cold October air.

He looks sleepy and grumpy.

I was disturbing his tenth nap of the day.

Joe asked did I need a lint roller.


I am linking with the darling Debbie of Debbiedoos for her Pet Party.

  1. What a beautiful photo.
    The colors are amazing.
    (The cat is pretty too!)

    Have a good week-

    White Spray Paint

  2. Clovis, what a beautiful name, really is suiting. He looks like he has a really rough life though, I have to say, he looks nervous and!!~ What a life I tell ya...I love it. Thanks for joining Olive.

  3. My cat always does that, when I put something on the counter to air dry she always lays on it! What a sweetie!


  4. Very cute. It always amazes me what a cat will lay on or get into. Rusty will always try to get in a empty coke can box. He puts his head in and keeps pushing the box around, but can't figure out why he can't get in.

  5. I love the name Clovis. He is so darn cute. So cat like to claim your sweater and look all disturbed when you come to take his pic. Adorable!

  6. I wish I was a cat ,oh what a life Clovis has!
    Thanks for vcommenting about Beau and Bella ,I have become your newest follower ,I can't wait to read more about your pre civil war house.

  7. He looks so content! What a beautiful cat, and I am thinking that blue is his color!

  8. The feline gent knows just where to rest...cute!


  9. I have alays loved Ginger cats!

  10. Thank for stopping by and the kind words about Mya your baby is so cute as well


  11. Oh...what a life our pets have! Clovis is precious!


  12. Oh Clovis is soooo cute! Why do they always want to plop down right in the middle of the action? He just knew you needed that sweater.

  13. I think clovis is asking you to please take the damp sweater and put it on top of a warm drying. He told me he would appreciate it. :)

  14. You know I am one of Clovis' biggest fans. He's just wonderful!
    Anything I lay down is a bed for Clarence. All of these things are cozier than a wet sweater outside in the cold air: a cookbook (open or closed), a keyboard, a coat, a blanket, a rug, a small pillow, bills. I could go on, but you get the idea.

  15. Hi Olive... ooooh, Clovis is just adorable!... Kitty kisses sweet little Clovis!... meow... Julie Marie

  16. So peaceful in the first - so grumpy in the last - fun photos of Clovis

  17. Awww! Clovis just wants to snuggle up near his mommy! He is such a pretty cat!

  18. So funny the places they decide to sleep. Clovis is adorable!

  19. Love the pictures and the cat is beautiful. Hope your week is happy, Kim

  20. How precious is this picture! He's beautiful and I love his name. Thanks for sharing a part of your family with all of us.

    Have a wonderful day,

  21. Clovis is "Just-Being-A-Cat"... Sweet... Wise Tabby!!! Love this CAT...
    Jeanine, ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!

  22. Clovis is a handsome cat. I absolutely love orange tabbys. I think he is helping you dry your sweater. When I had my sweet orange tabby I could get enough orange dust bunnies to make a sweater a week. Ginger

  23. Clovis is gorgeous, and what a lovely colour! I think that was very kind of him to try and dry your jumper like that and a bit mean of you to keep disturbing his naps! Oh to be a cat!

  24. Clovis looks alot like my Fritzy. And apparently acts alot like him too. LOL

    Fritzy has to lay on anything "Mommy's". It doesn't matter if it's wet or not. :)

    I've enjoyed seeing Clovis today! :)

  25. too funny! i'll never understand how my cat can sleep where she does, either. under chairs, hanging over the lip of the couch! clovis is so adorable...stopping over from debbie's party. please stop by and visit my sweet cat, Sunday.

  26. Aww, Clovis is so cute, and he looks dashing on that blue sweater!

    Kat :)

  27. Animals ... you just can't figure out why they do what they do ... but it sure can be entertaining! Clovis is a beautiful cat ... I love the name too!


I adore your comments. They are like finding unexpected chocolates. olive
