I found Oscar while doing my daily searches on Petfinder.com for animals in need. His sweet face caught my attention and his story stole my heart. I shared Oscar's plight with some friends who share my dismay and disgust when people give up lifelong pets when the pets get old.
My friend Kathy and her husband Dan take a special interest in senior cats and agreed that Oscar should come to live with them. They had extended discussions with the shelter, but everything seemed like a good match so Kathy and I got in the car and drove the 600 miles roundtrip to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and back to get him. It was a long drive, but the fall colors were beautiful and it was worth every minute to bring that sweet cat to a new home.
A big Thank You to the Oshkosh Humane Society that has recently made a committment to not euthanize animals due to lack of space; most organizations don't make an effort for senior cats.
How cute am I?
My name is Oscar - I'm a senior citizen looking for a nice, quiet place to retire.
I was surrendered to the shelter after living with my family for 15 years. Could you imagine being torn from your home and the only family you had ever known? I don't understand why I'm here - so excuse me if I act shy when you first meet me. The staff is working to bring me out of my shell...and slowly but surely, it's working.
If you are lonely and looking for a quiet, gentle companion, please stop in and get to know me.
