Sporty Oliver


Like my professional career, I have another side which I tend to keep to myself.  Behind my laid back, roly poly image, I can also be a totally over the top, extreme athlete, when I choose to.  Hey, after all, I am a cat.  A CAT.  I am not totally a wimpy bunny rabbit like my dad says.  I quietly train myself and when the moment calls for it, I am capable of demonstrating an astounding athletism, as you may have witnessed on my last post, the image of my perfect evasive side kick.  I will let you take a little glimpse of how nimbly I can leap in the air here... touch of parkour, eh!?


P.S. you may be able to observe the fruit of my hardcore training on the floor... mamma was too excited about filming my acrobatic moves she forgot to sweep the floor... pardon the disorder!

  1. Yaaayyyy! A gym mat video! :-)) (sort of - we get to see his final pose after shredding the mat, before jumping on the floor.)

    And such jumps! High and graceful, and fast! A masterful hunter. I love how he goes & hides in the box afterwards. hehehe

    1. Yes I am still trying to film the scratching action without success arrrrgh!!! It also took me a long long time to actually film him leaping up in the air too, it requires an incredible amount of holy patience to film a cat at the right place at the right moment!!! (mamma Licia)

  2. Wow! Incredible leaps! So impressed - tell your dad that no bunny can make leaps like this and then swiftly dash to a box that would have flown across the room if not for that wall to stop super Oliver kitty's powerful force!

    1. Yes, my jump is a pure feline leap, not a bunny hop as you can see!!! :-D Of course I knew you will like my jump, but I just had to show off my favourite box so I hurried over there before she turned off her paparazzi gadget!!! :-D

    1. Oh yes, you understand auntie Liz, box collection is my passion!!! I have three in mamma's gym which she has to sort out every time she comes in to do her things, and a few others laying around in other parts of the house, other humans except mamma are not happy about it and always threatening to throw them away, how dare they, they are all mine! mine! mine!!!
