Orange & White Tabby

Having his fuzzy belly rubbed. Also, being spun very fast in an office chair. Oddly, it seems to induce grooming.

Big B*lls, the neighborhood bully. Being ignored when the poor thing is obviously starving. And the vacuum cleaner is definitely out to get him.

Favorite Toy:
Voles or catnip. Preferably, both. Maybe voles rolled in catnip.

Favorite Nap Spot:
On his pal Joey, or on the sofa with his paws over his eyes. Or on his favorite fleece blanket, wherever it may lie. He lives to "make bread" with his paws.

Favorite Food:
What have you got?

Spinning on an office chair and then begging for more; having his belly rubbed; his meow sounds like a balloon losing air through a very small opening; falling on his butt in a very uncatlike fashion.

indoors and outdoors

Arrival Story:
We acquired both Oscar and Joey from the same household where there were a LOT of cats. They're very socialized with people and other cats (except Big B*lls). We knew we had to get them both when we spotted them rolling around in the grass together. Check out their mutual page for "The Boys".

I've known and had many cats, but I believe Oscar may be the cutest yet. He just can't help it. Rub his belly and you're friends forever. Look at him! It's embarrassing. He follows his humans around the house and truly hates to be alone. The morning after I returned from a trip, I came down the stairs to find Oscar lying on the floor, looking thoroughly exhausted. Nearby were two very dead voles with x's on their eyes. He was proud and pooped. I thanked him profusely with a good tummy rub.

So I don't have thumbs. So my peoplepets have to open the cans for me. So I never shut up about it. So what? I'm so cuuuuuuuute! Scratch me under my chin and I'll squint at you every chance I get. Rub my belly and make a wish. If you wish for my undying devotion, it will come true. So I'm Joey's sidekick. So he won a bunch of cat fud. So what? I'm so cuuuuuuuute!

Besides, everyone knows I'm the one who'll eat it.


It's so good to be me!

Everybody loves me. I'm pretty sure. They keep telling me I'm so cuuuuute and fuzzy and lovable and sweet and stubborn and spoiled...no...forget those last two. I'm cuuuuuuute! Gosh, it's so good to be me. Don't you wish you were me? I know I do.

Since I'm so adorable and everything, could someone please feed me?


Zuzu? Still here?

Yeah, she's still here. And she even has her own Catster page now. It doesn't really matter though, I guess. I get to play with her. She's little, so I let her grab my head and kick it. Not much longer, though. Someday I'll teach her a lesson. Someday. First, we're gonna play!
