Schrödinger's cat lives!

This is actually my Aunt Bonnie's cat, and his name is Ollie. Thankfully, he has not been part of any experiments, except maybe to see how many children a family can bring into the house before he runs and hides safely under the bed. (The answer is one, if you're curious.) I took this photo when the smell of turkey and gravy lured him away from his hiding place to the cover of a giant Elephant Ear plant growing in a pot on her sun porch. Ollie waited patiently in the foliage because he knew I wouldn't leave without bringing him a little snack.

Gorgeous cat! My cat only hides when there are 2 or 3 children in the house. When she isn't hiding she is usually hissing at the kids.

Thank you! Ollie is a sweet cat. Poor thing! He's terrified of kids. So is my Mom's cat, but like yours, he just hisses at the kids so they're terrified of him.
