You’ll be terribly missed, sweet Oscar…
"Oscar lost his battle with kidney disease today. He declined rapidly over night and we just knew that it was time.
I am so glad I have been able to share him with you all, with all his silly antics and his wonderful grumpy face. Despite looking in a bad mood in photos, he really was the most jolly, funny, lovely cat you could ever meet. He brought so much laughter and happiness to our lives and I hope we did the same for him.
It’s hard to picture him as the scraggly, thin, battle scarred tomcat that we met three years ago. I feel so blessed that he chose to trust us (with the help of many hot dinners and treats!) and decided to join our family. He really blossomed during his time with us and I like to think that we made a real difference to his life.
Our hearts are broken right now but I know we have done the right thing. I could not bear to see him suffer. He was no longer the Oscar that we knew, just a shadow of himself. Today has been the hardest I have known.”
