2019 – The Year of Olive!

Well, 2019 is about to end, and it’s always fun looking back at things that took place during the year. As many know, I post daily photos (with accompanying chats) on both Facebook and Instagram – and then post the week’s recap here on the blog each Friday. So, I thought I’d look back at the cats’ top-performing Instagram posts – and it turns out that 2019 is the Year of Olive!

  • Six of the top nine slots feature Miss Olive! (Of course, she’s not surprised.)
  • Dexter swooped in at the last minute to claim the number one spot. He literally received one more “like” than Olive’s photo. (Olive refuses to speak to him now.)
  • Sophie rounds out the top nine with two photos. (Olive can’t believe it!)
  • Woodrow has to share his lone photo with Olive. (She’s not sure if this is worse than Sophie’s two photos.)
  • Harley doesn’t make a single appearance. (Olive was a bit surprised by this, but then again, she can’t think of a photo of hers that doesn’t deserve to be included, so there’s just no room for him.)

  1. Love all the photos – AND love all of you – lots of love in the air for 2019 and there will be in 2020 too. We’re all ready to wrap this past year up and put it on the shelf with all the others. Time to open up the GIFT that 2020 will be. Thanks for all the fun here on the blog – we love the weekly wrap-ups. Keep ’em coming! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    Love, Teddy and Mom Pam

  2. I have a mostly tortie Calico of my own, so I understand the draw of their beauty. However, Olive, it’s a little unfair. You have to let your siblings win a few.
