If you would have told me that we would get another cat after losing George, I would have told you absolutely not. My husband and I visited PetsMart a few times since the passing of George. Two weeks ago we visited PetsMart and there he was, Oscar. There were many kittens but Oscar caught my eye. We talked to the people at PetsMart but decided to leave and finish our shopping. We passed by PetsMart on our way home and my husband asked if I wanted to stop and see about Oscar. I said no, but had e-mail information to find out about Oscar. I went on my computer as soon as I got home and found out about Oscar and sent an e-mail. I got an e-mail and phone call right away. We went back to meet Oscar and the woman that had Fostered him for 8 months. Oscar was the victim of foreclosure, had been in a shelter, then a Foster home, then Pets Mart to try and get a home. We could not resist. We bought a carrier, food and paid for him and brought home our 5 year old, 17 pound 12 ounce Oscar. He loves us and we love him. He is a gem. We still miss George so very much, but could not have asked for a better addition to our family.


  1. I am so glad you chose to post Oscar's photo here. It is fitting. And Oscar deserves it too.

  2. Thank you. It is one step at a time for me. It was easier to post before, now I have to think about it. Takes time. Then it just happens, like today.

  3. Oscar is SO pretty and blessed to have found such a sweet family, and likewise you are blessed to have found your sweet little Oscar.*! You may have read on my blog about my little 9 month old Abby. She was just a "give away" kitten that a friend gave me, and she is the very first cat I have ever had. She's certainly not what you'd call a pretty cat, but she makes up for it by the sweetest*! (smile) I absolutley love that skinny little black cat. We are blessed to have our little furbabies. Give Oscar a hug from Ashley and Abby*! ((hugs)) _Ashley*
