Does Gervais have any pets?

While he loves both cats and dogs, Ricky only has a beautiful cat Ollie right now. He would love to have a puppy, but he often travels, and he would never want to leave a loyal friend at home alone. As he said once on Ellen show:

A cat, you can leave it. You go, "I'm going." It goes, "Whatever." A dog says, "Well, am I coming?" And that look is, "What have I done wrong?"

This doesn’t mean Ricky doesn’t love Ollie. In fact, his feed is mostly pictures of this beautiful felines. And what is more, the cat has her own Twitter account!

Ricky posts there at least a few times a day. The account now has more than 40 thousand followers who often shower Ollie with compliments and hilarious comments.

The cat is definitely lucky to have such a loving owner!
