Oliver Opines on Friday Fill Ins (on Saturday)

Hello Furiends,


“I’m not fat, I just have big bones.” – Oliver

I know, I know, I’m purrticipating in the Friday blog hop on Saturday…so sue me. It’s a long weekend and I’m having a hard time getting in gear. Although, with my girth getting in gear for anything is a struggle. The Female Human is so concerned about me she’s taking me to the vet next week to see why I’m gaining so much weight. Believe it or not, I’m not a snack eater, rarely partake of the wet food and am pretty much a “kibble only” kind of guy so my weight increase is a bit of a mystery. I told The Female Human I just have big bones.

Oh well, enough about me, let’s enjoy this week’s fill ins blog hop brought to you by the good folks at 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs.  You’re invited to join the blog hop or, opine about your answers in the comment section.



Here are this week’s questions:

1. I ________________on Memorial Day.

2. I try to avoid _________________.
3. If I had a catchphrase, it would be _________.
4. _________ motivates me to work hard.

My Answers:

1. I do the same thing I do every day on Memorial Day -as little as possible.

Me engaging in my favorite activity, which is no activity. – Oliver

2. I try to avoid exerting myself during playtime as much as possible. See how I handle my brother Alberto’s aggressive moves.


3. If I had a catchphrase, it would be “keep calm and purr on”.
4.Absolutely nothing motivates me to work hard. Cats do not work, we play and we rest and that’s about it.

Tucker and I working hard at not working. – Oliver

  1. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers Oliver. I think I am a cat, nothing motivates me to work hard 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend! XO


  2. Oliver I’ve got big bones too……..22 lbs. of them in fact. My vet says I’m healthy – just HUGE. I’m very good at lounging as well – it’s definitely my favorite activity NEXT to going for a walk on my leash with Mom or Dad. Hope you have a FAB Sunday!

    Hugs, Teddy


  3. Meowser, Oliver! You had purrfect answers. Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and the nasty vet doesn’t find anything wrong. That having been said, my furiend, Ophlia has a thyroid problem and problems gaining weight – too bad you two can’t share problems, then maybe you’d both be the purrfect weight.

    • Thank you. One thing I have to say about The Female Human is that she stays in top of our health. (I just hope the vet’s diagnosis will not result in diet restrictions!)
      Purrs & Head Bonks,


    • Thanks for the tip. The Female Human has been trying to get me off the kibble and to eat wet food as well (we get wet AM and PM ) but I am a kibble kind of guy. Looks like I’ll have to change my eating habits.
      Purrs & Head Bonks,


  5. My name is Chaucer. I am a white cat with a black tail, ears and nose. We look so much alike that we must be related somehow. I am also a very big guy. The vet says , “he is BIG!” but not unhealthy. My mom says I am big because she is a softie and gives all of us kittehs too many treats, but my sisfurs are not fat. They are slim. They like to climb. I like to sleep.

    • Good to meet you Chaucer! We have much in common in addition to our floffyness, my brother Alberto is a lean, mean, feline machine. Hard to believe he and I came from the same litter!
      Purrs & Head Bonks,


  6. Thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins, Oliver! “Keep calm and purr on.” That is a purrfect catchphrase, and we’re going to live by that. Purrs!
