Arrival Story:
Oscar was born and immediately abandoned by his feral mother in a plant nursery in San Francisco. He was raised there on a bottle, but was not at all suited to Nursery life. His spine was fractured when he was about three months old(bag of rocks we think...) and he had to be contained in a cage for another two months while healing. After he came back to the nursery, he sustained another bad injury to his leg, so I knew that it was time to bring him to a safe home. He was pretty wild, and our Sylvi cat(may she rest in peace) was none too happy at first. We conquered him with love though.

Bio:
Oscar developed severe Feline Asthma when he was two years old and has to take medication every day. It's been a bit of a struggle with him in many ways, but like all cats, all he ever wanted was love and safety, and he has that with us. He is mostly healthy now. He is an outdoor cat only as far as our tall deck which he cannot get off of, but he loves to watch the birds and be scolded by the squirrels out there.
