A year ago today, we said goodbye to our amazing kitty Oscar, who was a wonderful presence in our lives and in this daily blog.
Oscar — who was chosen by my son Aaron from a shelter after a long search — was a loving and chill creature who was always RIGHT there, and we miss him very much.
Unlike Aaron, I usually choose shelter cats who are shy and scared, because I think they are less likely to get adopted. Case in point: our kitty Harley.
Now that my year of mourning Oscar is over, I’d like to get another shelter animal that won’t make Harley’s life a complete misery. We’ll see how that goes.
In the meantime, here are my images for July 22, 2021.
While I don’t love the way my voice sounds in this 2014 video where I’m singing along to Pat Metheny’s “Third Wind” (in the bathroom for the acoustics!), this shows how loyal and present Oscar always was, so I’m sharing this today.
And here’s a much older video that Aaron made — “Graduation Cat” — which again demonstrates Oscar’s sweet and patient nature.
I’m grateful for all the years we had with Oscar, and thanks to all who are here with me on this precious day, including YOU.
