Ollie came into my home in January 1994. Ollie was 7 years old and
his coat was white and gray and on his head the gray looked like a
cap on his head. His walk was light and when he would trot from one
room to the next it was like he had springs on his legs.
started his life with me in NJ and ventured out on a 4-day car ride
to Texas when I moved to Austin in July 1994. He was a trooper!
He didn't even mind being on a leash.
I would be sitting on the couch I would tap it and he would jump
up next to me for attention…purring so loud. Ollie loved being petted
especially on the head and under his chin and he would purr up a
storm, real loud and paw my arm as if to say "please continue.
I would go to bed for the night he loved to sleep on my pillow above
my head. Sometimes he took a liking to lick my hair.
I would shake the treat box, he would come running for this special
occasion. During the past few months he took a liking to eating
some leftover oatmeal.
loved to play with the feather toy on a stick, he would hit the
feather right on every
time it came around in a circle to him as if he was playing tetherball.
liked to drink water, he would dip his paw in the water bowl and
lick his paw. He also loved drinking in the toilet and tub so I
set up a cup of water on the tub ledge and he drank from there.
loved being outside too with the other kitties or by himself. He
loved lying in the sun. When he was very weak, he went outside one
more time on his own and layed down in the grass. It was as if he
knew it would be his last time to do that. I am glad he did that
you were such a sweat heart and good friend. You loved anyone that
wanted to be with you! You will always have a special place in my
heart and your previous owners Jan and Scott will have fond memories
too. I will miss you very much!
