This is my basket. If I could write, I’d make a sign that read, “Olivia’s Basket” using the darkest, most permanent marker I could find. See how well this basket fits me? It’s like it was made for me and only me. Not for my brothers or my bigger sisters. It’s Olivia size. This basket wasn’t here yesterday. It grew up here overnight, just for me because it knew I was looking for a place just for me.

My dad said I look very cute and comfortable in my basket. And then he said not everyone has a basket for their very own. Really? He can’t be serious, can he? That’s an outrage!

Come to think of it, no one else around here has a basket, so I guess my dad might be on to something. That dad… sometimes I think he knows what he’s talking about.

  3. That is an absolutely perfect fit for you, Olivia. It’s like a little house!

  4. that basket DOES look as if it was made just for you! You look stunning in it!

  5. Olivia….we think that’s absolutely perfect for you! Maybe the dad can get you a nice soft pillow of your very own for it. Maybe some curtains at the little window on the side…… 🙂

  6. Make sure everycat knows it’s your basket Olivia – why don’t you ask your Mom for a lovely soft blankie to rest on in there.

  7. Well we have heard of chicken in a basket and now we have Olivia in a basket. LOL! Have a marvelous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. Time to get every kitty his/her very own basket, perhaps with a little blankie. That should prevent any squabbles. Our Lily Olivia has her antique dough bowl that fits her to a T. Sometimes she shares with Astrid if she doesn’t know Astrid is in it. We agree that you fit perfectly in this basket and that it should be yours. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  9. Olivia, anyone with half the required number of brain cells could see that basket was meant for you and you alone. But then, we know the condition of many humans’ and felines’ brains. You look so incredibly sweet I would have to photograph you and paint you and share you. Perhaps Quint could paint your portrait.

  10. Yous is purrfectly right it does suit yous!

  11. Yeeeessss……sometimes we do think dads know what they’re talking about.

    Hey! WE needz a basket! MOMMMMMMM!!

  12. That basket IS perfect! We have towels sprout up on the furniture occasionally around here, and even a blanket if we’re really lucky!

  13. Olivia lucky that you have a perfect basket for you. Here in our house has 1 basket but we had four cats and as always Tom took possession of it.

  14. we don’t have a basket, only boxes and lots of them. maybe we should lobby for a basket soon?

    you do look gorgeous and relaxed.

  15. Nobody here has a basket! I think there is something Not Right about that.

  16. We can tell you were simply shocked to hear not everykitty has a basket of their furry own. We haz many in our house, we trade off with who gets ’em. You look lovely in yours. It suits you purrrfectly.
