Oscar’s Origins Story
On a freezing January night almost exactly 6 years ago, my brother and his family woke up in the middle of the night to hear a very loud distressed meowing noise coming from outside. They went out to investigate, and found a tiny kitten stuck in the bushes – no idea how he get there, but we suspect he may have been thrown from a car. My brother asked me to take him in because their dog was less than enthused with the sudden new arrival, and so he was named Oscar and became cat number 4 in our crazy cat house! His vet told us that his voice saved his life – he would have frozen to death that fateful night if he hadn’t been heard yelling out for help.
