Here is how Oliver came to live at Australind Vet and how he was named…all thanks to one of our first veterinary nurses (nurse Janet).

Oliver writes,

I WAS BORN IN A BARN IN JUNE 2002 TO A GINGER QUEEN AND AN UNKNOWN FERAL FARM CAT CALLED “TOM”, WELL AT LEAST THAT’S WHAT MUMMY CALLED MY DAD. I NEVER KNEW MY FATHER. MUMMY LIVED IN A PRE CAT-LAW APOCOLYTIC ERA WHEN CATS WERE EXPENDIBLE. THE LIFE OF A CAT WAS CHEAP. WE EXISTED TO MAINTAIN RODENT POPULATIONS AND NOTHING ELSE. WE GREW UP TOUGH WITHOUT CREATURE COMFORTS. WE WERE ‘ARD. MUMMY HAD TO CATCH MICE TO FEED MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS. WHEN I WAS SIX WEEKS OF AGE I CAUGHT MY FIRST BABY MOUSE. I DIDN’T EAT IT THOUGH. WE PLAYED AND PLAYED.

AT THE TENDER AGE OF SIX WEEKS I WAS BUNDLED INTO A BOX AND LOADED ONTO THE BACK SEAT OF A CAR (I THINK). THE BOX WAS VERY DARK BUT I COULD SEE THROUGH A CRACK IN THE TOP. I KNEW IT WAS A CAR BECAUSE I HAD HEARD THE ENGINE BEFORE DRIVING AROUND THE FARM. MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS WERE VERY FRIGHTENED. WE WERE NOW ORPHANED. MUMMY WAS NOWHERE TO BE SEEN. WE DID NOT KNOW WHAT LAY AHEAD. I WAS A “GINGER” SO I TRUSTED THAT LIFE WOULD BE KIND TO ME. I HAD FAITH THAT EVERYTHING WOULD WORK OUT OK IN LIFE. THE UNIVERSE HAD MY BACK BECAUSE I WAS THE MOST HANDSOME CAT ON THE PLANET. I WOULD SURVIVE AND FLOURISH.

I WAS TAKEN TO A PLACE WHERE THIS FUNNY RINGING SOUND SEEMED TO HAPPEN EVERY FEW MINUTES. I COULD SMELL LOTS OF FUNNY SMELLS. I WAS PUT INTO A CAGE WITH MY FIVE OTHER BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND THIS WIRE DOOR SLAMMED SHUT IN OUR FACES. WE LOOKED AT EACH OTHER. WHAT WAS THIS PLACE? WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO US?

WE WERE ALONE, OR SO I THOUGHT. I LOOKED ACROSS THE ROOM AND I SAW THIS STRANGE CREATURE STARING AT ME AND DROOLING. IT STARTED MAKING THIS TERRIBLE NOISE. I LATER LEARNED THAT THIS THING WAS A DOG. IT SEEMED TO BE A STRANGE DISEMPOWERED CREATURE THAT DROOLED AND YAPPED. I STARED AT IT FROM MY IVORY TOWER AND IT BARKED MORE. I REALISED IT COULDN’T HURT ME THROUGH THE CAGE. THIS POWER CAME OVER ME. I WAS A HANDSOME GINGER CAT WITH SUPER POWERS. I WASN’T AFRAID OF ANYTHING.

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS FELT VERY SORRY FOR THEMSELVES. THEY ALL HUDDLED TOGETHER WITH A LOOK OF TERROR ON THEIR FACES. NOT ME. I WAS A ROCK STAR GINGER WITH SUPER POWERS. I COULD MAKE FUNNY FURRY DROOLING CREATURES BECOME APOCOLYPTIC WITH RAGE AND I’M NOT AFRAID TO ADMIT THAT I ENJOYED IT.

I STARTED CLIMBING UP THE WIRE CAGE DOOR BECAUSE I WAS A “SUPER CAT”

A HUMAN DRESSED IN A BLUE UNIFORM SAW ME CLIMBING THE CAGE. SHE OPENED THE CAGE AND PICKED ME UP. SHE SAID I WAS THE CUTEST BALL OF GINGER FLUFF SHE HAD EVER SEEN. I MADE EYE CONTACT WITH MY BIG BLUE EYES. MY GINGER GLOWED AND I FLUFFED MYSELF UP EVEN MORE. SHE CUDDLED ME AND TICKLED ME UNDER THE CHIN. SHE THEN GOT SOME WOOL AND I STARTED CHASING IT AROUND. HEY THIS WAS FUN. SHE CARRIED ME AROUND AND CUDDLED ME. I PURRED. SHE SNUGGLED. I PURRED AND FLUFFED MYSELF UP. I PATTED MY FEET ON HER LAP AND CURLED UP FOR A NAP. IT HAD BEEN A BIG DAY.

AFTER A CAT NAP, I WAS BACK IN THE CAGE WITH MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS. THEY WERE ALL HUDDLED AROUND A BOWL. I HAD NEVER SEEN THIS STUFF BEFORE BUT IT SMELT GOOD. THEY WERE HEAD DOWN TAIL UP SO I PUSHED IN TO GET A TASTE. THERE WASN’T MUCH LEFT. I GOT A MOUTHFUL OF THE MOST WONDERFUL FOOD I HAD EVER TASTED. IT WAS SO GOOD AFTER EATING DEAD RATS AND MICE THAT I CAN REMEMBER IT VIVIDLY TO THIS DAY. MMMMM MMMMMMMMMM. IT WAS GOOD.

BUT THERE WASN’T ENOUGH FOR ME. I WAS STILL HUNGRY. I RAN OVER TO THE CAGE DOOR AND WITH MY SUPER CAT POWERS I STARTED CLIMBING THE CAGE AGAIN. THE LADY IN THE BLUE UNIFORM WAS CALLED JANET. JANET I MEOWED. SHE CAME BACK OVER AND REALISED I WAS STILL HUNGRY. SHE ASKED ME IF I WANTED MORE AND I MEOWED AND PURRED MY LITTLE MOTOR. SHE GOT ME MORE FOOD. HOW GOOD WAS THIS?

SHE CALLED ME OLIVER TWIST. APPARENTLY IF YOU SAY “PLEASE SIR, CAN I HAVE SOME MORE” TO A HUMAN, THEY CALL YOU OLIVER TWIST. SOMETHING ABOUT A FAMOUS BOOK? ANYWAY, THAT WAS HOW I GOT MY NAME OLIVER TWIST (OR OLIVER FOR SHORT).
