Our invisible friend

The little guy has developed an invisible/imaginary pet — a cat named Oliver. Last week, he watched the movie “Oliver and Company” several times. It’s a Disney cartoon, loosely based on “Oliver Twist,” with a cat in the lead role, and dogs as the rest of the gang. Billy Joel voices the Artful Dodger. Could be better, could be worse. Anyway, this morning when we woke up, the little guy announced that this was another movie, about what happened after the other one.
Apparently, in the sequel, Oliver goes to Target and enjoys fountains, as well as climbing around Yucca trees. We had a close brush when the little guy thought the imaginary kitty had been locked in the car; fortunately the quick-thinking tabby jumped into Mommy’s purse at the last minute.
