I was shocked to receive the news earlier today that our former foster Oscar (previously called Quincy), died a couple of weeks ago after a brief fight with renal lymphoma. His Mom wrote to let us know and since I had just heard from her afew months ago when she wrote to share an update and pictures of how happy and great Oscar was doing, it was a real jolt to hear this sad development.
"M" had adopted him only a couple of years ago and he wasn't that old, which makes it that much sadder. As I got over my shock, I immediately then gave thanks that this beautiful boy hadn't died alone on the city streets nor in a cold, metal cage. He had been loved and cared for and was adored - although his remaining time here was short, it was lovely we think.
A beautiful collage was shared of some of the nicest shots of Oscar so I'm sharing it here so you too can see why everyone should adopt and not shop.
Rest easy sweetheart and give my love to my own kids who are there to greet you on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.....
