Four years today Oscar entered our lives. In many ways he is very fortunate to be with us. First, he was rescued from the marina where he was drowning by a friend of Sands who pulled him out and took him home. Second, he was being fostered and was due to go to Germany but a week before his transport his fosterer had to go back to the UK so Sands brought him home. Third, having lost Orla we had seen how much Moreno in particular wanted a little mate to play with so fate took over.
I will always remember that first day he joined us. A small hissing black and white bundle of energy who started fighting and playing with Moreno straight away. They have remained best of friends ever since.
Oscar is a big friendly pud of a cat. Loves to be stroked, sleeps on the bed most nights now, and is always playing with Dusky and Kasper.
One very happy cat he has made us very happy so as I drive back from the UK today I will be looking forward to this evening when I am sure Oscar will be curled up in his favourite position on the sofa enjoying being close to us as we chill out.
Happy Anniversary Big Fella xx
