Oberon was a seizure-alert cat for me. He could open a can of Pounce treats in under 30 seconds. He never met a door he couldn't open. He tolerated medical treatment so calmly and well (everything except X-Rays, anyway; those he'd fight).


Arrival Story:
Found living in a feral colony in New Orleans, he was suffering from abuse, malnutrition, fleas, respiratory infections, and burns (looked like someone flicked a lighter in his face). He warbled at us from up in an oak tree, and we took him home with his mates Sebastian and Cerridwen. We didn't think he'd last a week, but he lived for almost 11 years. He was our Miracle Kitty.

Oberon passed away on November 10, 2003 after losing his second battle with lymphoma. His first battle occurred when he was 4 years old and left him immunocompromised for the rest of his life. Despite this, he was in remission for 7 years -- quite a miracle. He was strong, stubborn, loving, loquacious (with that wonderful Maine Coon vocabulary of trills, warbles, and chirps), and an excellent guardian. He & I had a special understanding because we both deal(t) with chronic pain (he had arthritis). He would alert me before I had a seizure or migraine aura. I miss him so much. He'll always be my "big brother," and a part of our family. The lessons he taught Saoirse have since been passed on to Madchen Chloe Pooperhead; the Culture of Oberon lives on.
