Ollie is the first pet inside Futuverse and is responsible for enhancing interspecies friendship. Animals in extreme environments are an essential part of the community, and petting zoos significantly improve the citizens’ psychological well-being.

Ollie is a Japanese breed of cat that follows you everywhere, almost like a puppy. Although it took him some time to get used to engineered proteins, he loves eating microalgae and cookies made of fish and insects. Inside Onteco Mars, the first Futuverse world, he loves long jumping, which is even more impressive on the Red Planet since the planet has a third of Earth’s gravity.
