Extra Special Guest Cat Of The Week: Ollie Fallon-Gervais


Name? 
Ollie Fallon Gervais

Nicknames? 
Many, but Finklestein is the one that’s stuck.

Theme tune? 
‘Hooray for Olliewood’ (2nd line: ‘Who’d like some fish for breakfast? Ollie would’). At Christmastime my mum thinks it’s hilarious at to sing ‘Deck the halls with bowels of Ollie’ in front of me.

Age?
10

Owners?
Novelist Jane Fallon (she asked me to point out ‘new book, Skeletons out March 27th’ and ‘available in all formats’ ) and comedian Ricky Gervais.

Brief biography?
Given as a gift aged 4 months. Spayed shortly afterwards (lawsuit pending). Now unable to bear children I have settled for a life of combat.

Catchphrase?
Brush me!
No, really, though. I’m not even joking. Do it.

Favourite habits? 
Literally biting the hand that feeds me.

Perfect evening? 
Eat, snooze, brush, repeat

Favourite food? 
Tuna. TUNA!!! GET ME TUNA!!!

Defining moment? 
The day my overly long left fang accidentally grazed the skin of someone who was doing something I wasn’t enjoying and they stopped. These days it’s not so accidental.

Enemies?
We’d be here all night. Suffice to say there are only two humans I have any time for, everyone else is fair game. I’m not scared of anyone or anything though, except the tabby and the tortoiseshell from next door but one, the two grey cats from over the back, the other tabby who spends all day in my garden, next door’s dog, the window cleaner’s dog, all other dogs, Mr Hoover, the broom and the stick that someone brought back from Hampstead Heath once.

If you could do one thing to make the world a better place for felines, what would it be? 
Who cares about the rest of them? Brush me!

Which celebrity would you most like to meet?
In all honesty they should be grateful to meet me.

Which of the cats in Under The PawTalk To The Tail and The Good, The Bad And The Furry would you most like to be stuck in a lift with?

I’m pretty confident I could beat them all in a fight except, maybe, for Shipley. I feel as if he’d say something to upset me.

Pawsome interview Ollie. But, aren't you afraid of ninja squirrels? I am, they stalk me and come to the window and mock me. They're lucky there's glass in the window and a screen or else I'd..I'd...yeah that's right I'd...
