Ollie


There is some very good news.  Mama Jessica has come home.  Papa Jonathan found her and led her home again.

Here is Ollie in his favorite place, being held by his Dad.  Ollie absolutely loves to be held and carried around.  Whenever he is picked up, the first thing he does is check out the ceiling.  A long time ago, he spotted a moth on the ceiling when he was picked up and that fascinated him, so he always checks to see if there is one on the ceiling this time.  Ollie's full name is Oliver Oliver Oxenford, but everyone just calls him Ollie.  Ollie and Mr. Chen love each other very much, but their personalities are very different.  Ollie loves to be held and carried around like a baby, but Mr. Chen doesn't like to be picked up at all, though he does enjoy lap sitting.  Mr. Chen loves string, but Ollie doesn't get interested in it that often.  Ollie loves the red spot game, but Mr. Chen could take it or leave it.  They do have some things in common.  Both of them really enjoy sitting in the window and watching the birds and both of them sleep with their Mom and Dad every night.  Mr. Chen sleeps between his Dad's knees and Ollie sleeps between his Mom's knees.  They both love playing with toy mice.  They had a new addition to the family lately.  Last month they got a brand new little blurpy girl.  They are both very interested in her and make good babysitters.

                                    Ollie just loves, loves, loves to be carried.
                                    It is his comfort when he feels harried.
                                            He's held like a baby
                                            And he's hoping maybe
                                    He and the blurpy girl can both be carried.

I think the momma may need to get a baby sling...or two.

hiya Karen-Jo!

I sincerely hope you are well - apologies for not being around much lately, our Human is so busy and our blogging is taking a back seat.

Mr Chen and I are similar in that we haten being picked up - but I also do not like sitting on laps. I prefer to snuggle against a human and i adore being stroked senseless! x

Thank you for visiting me and for leaving a special note for Cub Poppy's sad people. She was such a sweet Dog, even though she was a little nervous around Cats.

I would love to have a limerick written about us Snowshoe Siamese Cats, or even about me! purrrrrs...

Happy Friday, Karen Jo!

Ollie is much like Grayson. Grayson will actually ask to get up on Mom's shoulder.

Ollie is such a dollie! (Can I say that about a Mancat?)

I love Ollie - cool cat and cool name. The last dog here before BDP was named Ollie and he didn't annoy me. Ollie is a great name! And this Ollie is a cute cat!
