Oscar (Frosty) & Felix (Jake)
Adopted December 2010 and January 2011
November was a heartbreaking month as I had to put down my sweet,
little cat Molly (the ginger cat in the photos below), who had a large
cancerous tumour. While I do have a couple of other cats, the
house seemed somewhat empty without her.
December I decided to opt to welcome a new addition to the household.
Frosty (now named Oscar) caught my eye on the AWA website. Once
we met I was smitten with his handsome face and personality. Boy
what personality! After living in my home for a few days I
decided that his vigorous kitty litter maintenance (flying all over the
place) and the fact that as much food ends up on the floor as in him
made Oscar (ie. Madison – the slob) a perfect name for him. In
addition he has a tendency to be grouchy (hence Oscar the Grouch).
Frosty/Oscar was with the AWA he made friends with Jake (now named
Felix). Felix is so shy that when they brought him down for me to
see he had to be held in a blanket as he was so afraid. About a
month after I took Oscar home, Felix came home with me too.
Immediately, upon entry into my home he shot underneath the bed and for
the first few days pretty much stayed there all of the time.
After a little while he became comfortable enough to come out when I
wasn’t around and at night. When I’d get home from work he’d be
curled up on the bed with Oscar and Licorice.
it’s been eight months since Oscar came into my life and seven months
with Felix. While I still can’t hold Felix (that’ll come in time)
he sleeps on my bed – sometimes with me actually in it or perches over
me on the tall dresser to keep an eye on his new domain. Under
the bed no longer seems to hold any interest.
been so lucky to have these two great cats in my life! Felix is playful
and sweet and is such a lovely cat and Oscar too is sweet albeit on his
AWA, Helen Douglas and associated veterinary facilities do such great
work and provide such a worthwhile service to the community and animals
in need! Thank you all so much for the excellent care that you
provided Oscar and Felix (Frosty and Jake) while they were waiting for
me to adopt them! Here are some pictures of what they
looked like on the AWA website and them now.
Thank you so very much,
