Oscar the Puppy Cat



Oscar the Puppy Cat is a nine year old ginger tabby. He is called Puppy Cat because the first family who took care of him and his siblings owned a Great Dane, who became like a father to the kittens and Oscar picked up some of his characteristics. Oscar and his siblings were abandoned by their mother when they were fairly young and this family found them, cared for them for a while, then adopted them out. That's how Oscar found his forever family. He also cared for a very old, blind Chow Chow at one point. He prefers the company of dogs to other cats, but he loves any animal which doesn't try to beat him up. At present he is good friends with an older tomcat named Graymbo, who lives under their house. The area Oscar lives in is pretty rural, so he can roam outside and hunt moles. He hunts birds, too, but they get away more often. The windowsill you can see in the picture is one of Oscar's favorite places. It looks out onto the back yard, so he can watch the beankids playing, birds and other animals in comfort.

                                      Oscar has a wide window sill.
                                      It's his favorite place to nap or sit still.
                                                   Out comes the flashy box,
                                                    Which he finds obnox-
                                      Ious as Mom takes pictures of the cat on the sill.

PS - KJ, to get in the freezer, I stand on the counter next to the fridge and paw at the freezer door until it opens. Then me and Tazo start throwing stuff on the floor. It is soooo much fun! Well, it was lots of fun until Mom put one of those stupid baby locks on the door. Grrrr
