Hello I am Oliver! My birthday is March 18 ,2020 but the vet says I am healthy and big for my age! and I am a chocolate mitted Ragdoll. I have been with my mommy and daddy for 2 1/2 months now.
I love everything about my new home except my awful big black Rottweiler brother who stares at me through the window. His name is Kaiser and He’s fun to watch and he makes me really hyper. But he’s big and scary, and he barks loud and I’m glad he stays outside! Well I think I’ll go take a nap now and let mommy write to you.
Hello! I have loved rag dolls for a long time but I haven’t had a house cat since I was a little girl and never since I’d been married. My cousin and her family owned a rag doll and I just knew that was what I wanted when I started researching them. And I’m so glad that’s what we chose.
I finally got my husband convinced and we found a breeder just a few hours from where we live in Florida and fell in love with one of the two kittens, she had left available. I had a list of names but Oliver was the one that just stuck.
We got him the first part of June and we both, even my husband who claims not to love cats, love love Oliver! We also couldn’t have found a name that fit him more, it is so perfect! He keeps us so entertained and he is such a loving kitty.
I love to watch the positions he sleeps/lays in… he is such a rag doll! We don’t have children but I honestly think he would be the perfect cat for children as he never plays with me his claws out and he doesn’t mind any way you hold him! Oliver is the softest kitten I have ever petted and even the vet say he feels like a cotton puff!
I think they called him a marshmallow once too! 🙂 He follows me around from room to room and always wants to be where he can see me. I love that as it gives me company whenever I’m home alone!
He is super-duper playful and his favorite toy is a little thing his breeder sent with him, it is round plastic disk with a ball that he bats around and around but somehow, he learned how to get the ball out and now it is lost until he finds it again!
He loves to climb into and under anything possible. he wiggles under rugs and climbs into any box. He absolutely loves my laundry basket and plays for ages in it and even falls asleep in there, clothes or no clothes!
One thing I’ve noticed about Oliver is that he doesn’t meow a lot but he makes a lot of different throat noises. I can tell if he’s mad or curious or hyper just by his little throat noises!
My husband and I haven’t been able to have the children we would like, yet, and for now Oliver fills that place for us as our ‘baby’ And we’re so thankful for him filling his little spot in our home!
