O is for Ollie: Ollie the Off-hand Ostrich
Ollie is such a cool, laid back ostrich, nothing fazes him.
‘Whatever….’ is Ollie’s favourite expression as he drifts through the day looking for likely – or unlikely – things to eat not worrying about anything. Even though he has very long legs, making reaching the floor rather difficult, he never goes hungry because fortunately, he also has a very long neck.
Having this dual ability to reach very low down as well as very high up, comes in useful when naughty pussy Crankworth chases Ratty up the drainpipe. “Come out, come out wherever you are….” but not in the way Crankworth expected!
Name meaning: Ollie, Short for Oliver. Associated with the Latin term/name ‘Olivarius’ which translates as “Olive tree planter” Oliver on Wikipedia
