Olive is already the softest cat any of us have ever encountered, and this characteristic has only intensified over the last few weeks as she's acquired her winter coat. This shot from last weekend offers a pretty good indication of her thickening (and, miraculously, hypoallergenic) fur.
Cruella de Vil would swear off spots forever if she got one good look at our Olive. And, just to be as fair with our second set of siblings as we strive to be with our first, here's a shot of Orly from that same photo session. I think I can speak for everyone here - human and feline - in observing that she's been a great and welcome addition to the family.
