Oliver was the victim of horrific abuse by a woman who eventually served time in jail for her abuse of at least 15 cats. Both his front legs had been broken and his chest crushed. He was in casts for over a month and had to relearn how to walk once they were removed. Oliver required emergency care on a few occasions and almost died a couple times, so his foster mom brought him everywhere with her to keep a close on eye on him. He was affectionate and trusting, despite the abuse, and when his casts came off and his legs grew strong, he became a real little imp, dive bombing the resident cats.
His family reports that Oliver “…now is eleven pounds of pure energy and love. He has even won over the approval of our seven year old tabby Amber, at least most of the time. Oliver greets us when we arrive home with his special meow, plays fetch with his toys until we are tired, and snuggles better than any cat who has owned us…As I type this, Oliver is on my lap helping me and making sure that the ‘right things’ are said about him. I just got a lick and a purr, so I guess everything is OK.”
