Post 48 ~ Oscar


Introducing Lord Oscar Fuzzy Bottom!!!


I decided it was time to start looking for a new cat, I've been lost without my Missy (died Aug '07 at 17yrs) So I surprised the girls by taking them to the SPCA just to look.....well one thing led to another and we brought this adorable little guy home. He isn't what I wanted, far from it! I was dead against a kitten, I wanted a female that was at least one year old, but the one I really wanted was already spoken for. Then my second choice bit the hell out of my arm when I tried to get it out of her cage (they said it was fairly wild but oh, so gorgeous) The girls were scared after that of the bigger cats and kept saying over and over that they wanted a little kitty.


I still didn't want a kitty but to amuse the girls we looked at them, all were black or black and white, Mike hates black cats, so I thought that was that......but then this little fellow pushed aside his siblings and my heart melted. I only held him for 5 seconds and knew that I could not put him back. He is 8 weeks old.



Mike was shocked when he came home from work, a little up set that he wasn't involved but I think he has fallen in love (or at least in like) with him. On the car ride home the girls and I thought of calling him Fuzzy bottom and Fuzzy for short but I knew that I had to let Mike have the final say. After some tossing of names, Oscar stuck and Mike liked the "Lord" so he is officially, Lord Oscar Fuzzy Bottom. Oh and he loves Rupert, which is a big bonus! Oscar probably thinks Rupert is brother or something because he's black like Oscars mom and siblings.


Little guy is tuckered out from exploring his new home, he just curled up on my lap to have a nap. I hope tonight goes well, he already mews very loudly when left by himself and we are planning on keeping him in the laundry room overnight so he doesn't get into too much trouble....we shall see!

Hi Leslie! I love reading about your life-- you are a brave and tough woman... I'm not sure that I'll ever be ready to be a mom. Of course, you must learn SO much from parenthood, stuff I can't even imagine!

Keep up the good work, you're doing a great job!
