Oliver, pet of alumna Debbie De Louise, is a 17-year-old Siamese cat. Oliver first belonged to De Louise’s mother until she entered senior care nearly four years ago. De Louise took Oliver in hoping that he and her other cat, Stripey, would get along. “It took some time to introduce them, but they get along well now,” De Louise said. Oliver loves being brushed by De Louise, so she tries to brush him daily, either in the morning or at night. The two also love sleeping together. “He also sleeps with me, sometimes on my pillow,” she said. De Louise graduated in 1989 with a B.A. in English and an MLS in library and information science. As a student, she was a member of the Pioneer newspaper staff.
