The worlds most tolerant cat?

I was thinking tonight having read about some cats being overstimulated when stroked and then clawing/biting
Ollie has sat all night with me going
"I stroke your armpits!"
"I blow raspberries on your tummy!"
"I clip your long claw!" (He offers his paw to have them done)

Literally you can fuss and pet and bear hug him all day and all he does is purr or blink at you grin I accidentally poked him right in the ear and he just blinked
Stable cat likes being fussed but will then smack you around the face to say "enough now lowly human"

Litter tray rules, apologies wink
Having cuddles whilst blinking

He's gorgeous!

My cats are all very affectionate but do that irritating thing of head butting you when you're trying to mess about on mumsnet write essays.

Love Ollie. He's like a little cartoon cat. My boy allows manhandling ( cathandling?) to the extreme. He whoomphs on the floor for tummy tickles at any opportunity, allows spinning on his back on the wood floors, Can be carted around like a toy. I adore him grin

Cartoon in the idiotic way? grin
I'm currently having a full conversation with him as he's whining he's a vampire cat that wants to go and play in the dark with the traffic. Not. Happening

See that belly is just asking for raspberries!

Weedsnseeds1 Sat 27-May-17 02:28:01

Not in an idiotic way, the round head, big eyes, like an exaggerated drawing of a cute cat!

Weedsnseeds1 Sat 27-May-17 02:28:28

How is your back getting on?

I have a raspberry loving cat too! The other would take my face off if I tried, but she does allow a short snuggle.

Ollivander84 Sat 27-May-17 02:36:28

He says he does not have big eyes and he has no idea what the humans are saying wink

Quite well, I walked 3km yesterday and was a bit much as I'm only 2 weeks post op. Stitches are out and wound is healing despite ollies insistence on kneading it to help hmm

Weedsnseeds1 Sat 27-May-17 02:43:06

Big, round, goggly eyes...

Ollivander84 Sat 27-May-17 02:44:48

I read that and laughed and he's stalked off in disgust gringrin

I have had the "three strokes and I chomp" type cat before. I now have the utterly adoring, bodyguard cat.

Toddlerteaplease Sat 27-May-17 05:42:22

I'm so in love with Ollie!

Toddlerteaplease Sat 27-May-17 07:49:55

Tell him big eyes are a compliment. He reminds me of the scene In Allo Allo, where Helga describes Herr Flick's eyes as the size of poached eggs. grin

Leroy whoomps, but I'm the only one allowed to blow raspberries on the floofy tumter.

Wow OP, I have an identical cat - looks and personality wise. It's uncanny I thought that was my cat. Black cats are the most loveable ones ever.

Timmytoo Sat 27-May-17 08:05:15

Excuse the bed it was a bit disheveled and couldn't bear to move the "king" to fix it. Here's another more decent picture 😂

Toddlerteaplease Sat 27-May-17 08:28:33

Black cats are the best. We had an Ollie look a like but he sadly died when he was only 3. He was bonkers. Also have the advantage that you do t have to put sun cream on their white ears, as we did with our stunning white boy. Purple kids sticks were decidedly an affront to his dignity.

*Ollie has sat all night with me going
"I stroke your armpits!"
"I blow raspberries on your tummy!*

I must admit that all the way up to the next bit I was imaging that Ollie was doing these things to you ...

Ollivander84 Sat 27-May-17 11:18:50

Yet gringringrin
His is usually "poor human, stitches? I knead them better"
"You too hot? I lie on you"

YetAnotherSpartacus Sat 27-May-17 11:25:43

... You sleep too much - I wake you up?
... You have too much food - I share with you?
... You go to bathroom alone? I chaperone you?
... You sitting down? I want to play! ?

Sorry, but my cat is the most tolerant and lovely squishbucket in the world. Not one of us have ever had even an accidental claw, including the three pre-schoolers. I once caught my 2 yrs old dragging her across the yard by the back thigh and she just let her head bump lazily along the ground till I rescued her. SHe is the cat among all cats.

I had a cat i used to describe as "agressively friendly". Ignore him at your peril.

He would let you do anything, from dress him up to push him round in a pram. Ignore him though and he'd be climbing up you, yelling at you until you fussed him, getting right in your face.

Vet once didn't get what i meant- i think they heard agressive and got worried. At the end of 15 mins when they'd ben head butted across the room, been mugged for cuddles, and throughly shouted at for daring to look at the computer- then had a cat throw himself across the computer keyboard, they figured it out.
