It's common for a cat to enjoy stalking and pouncing on things. But playing fetch? That's a little more unusual, but not in Oliver the cat's household it seems.

Oliver’s owners have shared a clip online that shows how excited little Oliver gets when playing fetch. He enjoys it so much the little feline can play it for up to 2 hours. He’ll even complain to his owners if he doesn’t think they are throwing the toy enough.

The clip begins with the little feline staring at his owner willing for them to throw the plastic lid in their hand. With his ears pinned back and eyes wide, the young cat waits in eager anticipation. When the owner finally throws the lid across the room, Oliver is off like a rocket chasing the cap.

Full of excitement, the clever kitty expertly catches the lid in his mouth and immediately brings it back for his owner to begin all over again.

My mighty man Oliver will play this for 1-2 hours straight and cries if I don’t throw it enough. from r/aww

Fetch kitty!

It doesn’t even have to be lids that Oliver will play fetch with. Anything that fits in his mouth – carrots, string, toys, even socks!

Little Oliver doesn’t seem to get bored with his game of fetch at all, even if his owner might!
