more sad news

While I'm sure there's a joyous reunion at the bridge today, there are sad tears here as we say good bye to Oscar. He crossed the bridge this morning.

Please go to his blog to support his family. (Mom Kim is out of town and hasn't posted anything yet, but I know she and the rest of Oscar's family will appreciate your kind words.)

Oscar adopted Suzanne shortly before she crossed the bridge. The family quickly grew to include Miss Peach, Marilyn Monroe, me, Uncle Omer (a brother to dad Oscar), Pounce (dad's new wife), and Lucy.

We will miss our sweet, kind, loving, generous Oscar. Daddy.

My dear sweet fuzzy brother Ben, what a lovely tribute to Daddy Oscar. He was such a wonderful kitty -- full of love and joy and goodwill, and he was a dear, dear friend to all -- and I can't imagine a more marvelous, loving, tender-hearted kitty Daddy! We were very lucky to have his love in our lives, as was precious, sweet Suzanne who, no doubt, is snuggling joyfully with Daddy as we speak.

But yes, we will indeed miss him so much. Your tribute to him is precious.

Much love and hugs and purrs and snuggles from your adoring sister,

Marilyn.

And our thoughts and purrs are certainly with you and your family,

Purrrrrrrrrrs, China Cat & Willow

We're really sorry about losing Oscar. He was a wonderful cat and we so enjoyed reading his blog.

Cha-Ching tells me that he wants to send extra-special purrs for Lucy-Furr, as she copes with this loss.
