Happy Birthday Ollie cat!

Today is Ollie's birthday!  Okay - really today is Ollie's made up birthday as he was a stray so we have no idea when the real day is.  The vet estimates that Oliver is around the same age as Zoey which makes him 15 this year.  WOW!

Ollie was a stray who came into our lives because he was loving on Emma and because the weather got C O L D.  I convinced the hubs he needed to come inside when we were having an incredibly awful cold snap.  We would bring him in at night and let him back out in the day time.  Soon it became apparent that he should be our kitty.  Hubs wanted me to jump through some hoops - we ran ads in the paper, put up notices around the neighborhood, contacted many local vet offices - he was no one's kitty.  So - became a part of our family and he has become the ambassador of our zoo.

Ollie gets along with everyone.  He is mischievous, noisy, ornery and full of love.  He never passes up on a cuddle.  We adore him....
