The owner of a cat in Laurel, Prince George's County is asking for your vote to help him win a national high-five competition for felines.

Oliver is a two-year-old cat who was found on the streets when he was about 5-months-old.

He got his nickname "the Honey Badger" because his owner says he's smart, bold and mischievous.

Oliver loves doing tricks, like high-fives, and he is now a contestant in the Cat Pawsitive National High-Five Day Challenge.

His owner hopes to raise awareness for Pet Connect Rescue if Oliver wins, to raise awareness about the shelter where Oliver came from.
