When our beloved 17-year old cat died, we knew that one day we would be ready for a new cat to love. A few months later, we arrived at NEAS and we were adopted by Oliver (who was at that time called Doug).

From the moment we picked him up he has been part of the family. He brings so much love and laughter into our lives!

Something as simple as a shoelace or a kitty-sized ball are enough to keep him entertained for a long, long time. When he finally runs out of energy, he curls up next to one of us and purrs himself to sleep.

He is just the right amount of frisky curiosity and playfulness combined with sweet, loving affection. We’re so grateful that he’s part of our lives!
