It seems Ollie the kitten has grown to enjoy being bottle fed.

The bottle provided by the vet had a nipple that was too big for Ollie.  Once Ryan switched to this bottle from Petco, Ollie had a much easier time suckling.

America laughed as his cat, Ollie, chase him down the hallway.  "Hahahaha!  You can’t catch me!“ he sang, looking back to smile at his kitten.  But since he wasn’t watching where he was going, he slammed right into his nanny as she rounded a corner.  With a small "Oof!” America fell backwards onto the floor, luckily missing Ollie.

Elizabeth sighed.  America didn’t like that sigh.  She sounded tired and stressed.   But the boy tried to be polite and nice all the same.  "Sorry Lizzy!“ he said, smiling up at his nanny. "Ollie and I were playin’, and I didn’t see you there!”  He giggled a little.

She smiled sadly at him.  "I was hoping to find you, Alfred.  You and I need to talk.“

America tilted his head to the side.  He didn’t like it when she said that–it always meant something bad.  "What d'ya wanna talk about?” he asked cautiously.

The woman sighed again.  "We need to talk about Ollie,“ she said, motioning to the cat that had come up beside America.  "We…  He…  He can’t stay here, Alfred.  He’s ruined so much furniture, and caused so much trouble, it’s…  He really can’t stay.”  She placed a hand on America’s small shoulder, attempting to comfort him just a little.  "I’m sorry, sweetie.  But he really needs to go.  We can find him a better home.“

America was in shock.  He just stared at his nanny, unable to comprehend what she was saying.


After Bacon got over his excitement of seeing a kitten (first through a glass door, then through his crate), we let Bacon come into the same room. 

Bacon was incredibly patient, and also very intuitive about Ollie’s tiny baby size.  Bacon lay down to get eye level with Ollie, and let Ollie crawl all over his face.  Totally sweet pit bull, no?

And, of course, Ollie was not at all scared.  What’s there to be scared of?  (Ollie the Kitten)


Ollie’s not allowed in the bedroom.  That cardboard wall keeps him out (…for now.)  But it doesn’t keep him from waiting for us patiently – even if he’s …very…sleepy… (Ollie the Kitten)


Playtime is exhausting.  (Ollie the Kitten)

P.S. Encouraging Ollie to play with our hands is probably going to bite us in the butt later on.

We try to give this little biter some things other than our fingers and feet to naom naom on.  At this point, he will pounce and bite anything that moves.  (Ollie the Kitten)
