Day 2684: Oscar

Oscar, who deserves an Oscar for being the sweetest, most loving cat I’ve ever met, has cancer.

We’re grateful we still have the 18-year-old Oscar for more precious moments, even if we don’t know how many.

How many Oscars can you find in these photos from yesterday?
















There are four Oscar-worthy appearances of Oscar in videos I’ve posted on YouTube (here, here, here, and here)  over the past 13 years:

As you can see, Oscar has been a great supporting actor for both me and my son Aaron, who wisely picked him out of a shelter fourteen years ago.

Thanks to all sweet and supportive creatures, here and now, including YOU.

    I’m so sorry to hear about Oscar, Ann

  11. If there was ever a cat who deserved an Oscar it’s Oscar. As sad as it is that it can’t go on forever I’m glad he’s had a full and happy life, and you shared so much with him.

  12. Oscar is adorable and he must be happy having you as his human

  13. Oscar has been a great companion. He will have a gentle end to a great life. I love his wise little face. Be at peace. He’s a lucky boy and you’ve been lucky to share his space. I have a dog but a cat always holds a mystic energy. We’d be wise to appreciate their company.

  14. I am so sorry to hear about Oscar’s illness, Ann. These precious animals are such integral parts of our lives. The love and laughter they bring is unparalleled.
