    haha, I love your cat’s name!

      He’s such a total Pickles! And I love how people smile when they hear his name.

    You can tell a lot with a few words and pictures!

      It helps that Pickles is so very photogenic!

    My Otto is envious of Pickles’ set up!
    Sorry-not sorry you were held hostage

      Pickles knows how to get comfy! Otto is a great name for a cat!

    Valid reason to not move. Cats rule!

    1. Elisabeth Ellington Avatar

      They do! And you’re absolutely not allowed to move if a cat is napping on you!

    OMG – what an expressive little cat face! You need to write a children’s book about all your cats. Each chapter is in a different cat’s point of view. Pickles is always sleeping!

      I could write a long book if I featured everyone! I do find him very expressive and enjoy taking photos of him. He always manages to look absolutely adorable.

    Pickles may merit their own website. 🙂

      Pickles could dominate the Internet for sure! LOOK AT THAT LITTLE FACE!

    Irresistible. Who could possibly have gone to bed?

    1. Elisabeth Ellington Avatar

      It’s just not possible!

    Those are some spectacular eye lashes or eye whiskers or antennae or whatever they are. That’s a face that could cause you to lose sleep!

      Antennae! I laughed so hard at that comment.

    Oh, Pickles. How precious. I wouldn’t have wanted to get up and disturb her either. Wonderful slice of your life today.

    Pickles reminds me of our Molly. She is a bed hog and doesn’t like to give up her spot willingly.

    1. Elisabeth Ellington Avatar

      Cats are the best. Molly is absolutely right!

    How on earth could you disturb that kind of serenity? And they had a paw holding you down!

    1. Elisabeth Ellington Avatar

      Pickles is a very busy little guy too, so when he decides he wants to take a nap, we know he needs it.

    This is a perfect photo slice! I get into this dilemma with Herbert ALL the time! Lap cats are the best.

    1. Elisabeth Ellington Avatar

      It’s wonderful to have good lap cats!

    Oh, I simply adore this six word memoir. As a fellow cat mom, I approve. Pickles is so sweet.
