Because we all know how difficult it is to lose a pet…
The comedian regularly shows off how he is a huge animal lover.
He was understandably devastated.
But now, it seems that Gervais is ready to take the next step by fostering an adorable cat.
And there’s no denying that there’s certainly a mixed opinion about him.
Gervais was first placed under the spotlight when he wrote and starred in The Office in 2001.
The sitcom was hugely successful in the U.K and even though it only ran for 2 seasons, it ultimately lead to the creation of The Office (U.S) which is one of our country’s favorite sitcoms.
Gervais went on to write and star in Extras…
And he embarked on countless stand-up performances and comedy shows that were very popular amongst his fans.
And this has most certainly been proven from his numerous gigs of hosting the Golden Globe Awards… but we won’t get into that right now!
Gervais’ most recent production is perhaps his most successful since The Office.
After Life aired on Netflix in 2018…
And fans fell head over heels in love with the dark comedy that Gervais both wrote and starred in.
And Gervais’ character of a man trying to heal after the death of his wife spoke volumes to so many fans all around the world.
After Life was a shift in tone compared to Gervais’ usual acting style…
And the show addressed these subjects in a tasteful way without causing offense.
Gervais opened up about dealing with grief in his own personal life.
And the comedian often works closely alongside animal activist groups such as PETA to promote animal rights and freedom.
Ollie had been in their life for a staggering sixteen years, meaning she was a solid part of his family.
Taking to Instagram, he wrote:
“Just had to say goodbye to the sweetest little soul I’ve ever known. RIP Ollie
July 9th 2003 – March 10th 2020.”
And fans acknowledged how unbelievably difficult it is to lose a pet – especially one that has been in the family for such a long time.
And immediately getting a new pet to replace a lost one isn’t ideal for everyone.
Taking to Instagram, the comedian announced that they’ve taken in an adorable foster cat for a short period of time.
“Fostering this little beauty until she goes to her forever home. ❤️”
Fostering an animal is a great way to ease them into life with humans and it is a much kinder method than keeping them in cages for months on end.
We hope that it will bring some peace and happiness to Gervais during his grieving period.
