Meet ADOPTED! Oscar

Oscar was adopted by his foster parents! At approximately 7-years-old, he is long, slim and sleek. He has the body of an Oriental short-hair and the face of a domestic short-hair. He manages to knock over just about anything that is 2-3 feet high with his tail. I don't know why his tail is so rigid. He can be quite active at times... full of energy. What a character. He can entertain himself and can be quite entertaining as well. He was a feral kitten, but has become so friendly over the years. Because he was a feral kitten he doesn't show well when company comes to visit him. Like most cats he is a bit uneasy about meeting people he doesn't know. Oscar simply needs someone to take their time with him. He will bond to his new owners and will shower you with his love. Especially if he is the only baby in your home. He is used to being around dogs. He plays too rough, so a home where he is the only cat would be best. Oscar becomes very vocal once his food bowl is empty. He'll let you know when it needs to be filled up by telling you all about his kitty woes. He has been tested for FIV and Feline Luk, litter trained and also neutered.

UPDATE: Oscar came to me as a kitten. He was so wild and afraid of all people. His little brother, Oliver, warmed up to everyone very quickly. Oscar just wasn't as trusting. Within the last few years he has bonded to me. As I was dating my husband, he bonded to him as as well, so I knew it was possible for Oscar to bond to anyone who would just love him. Because Oscar really enjoys picking on the other kitties I had hoped someone with no cats would welcome him into their home and love him just the way he is. Sadly no one has taken an interest in him and he has been with me off and on for 7 years. He just returned to me after being in another foster home for 2 years. Don't get me wrong; he really loved his foster mommy, but he also loved picking on some of the more docile cats there as well. He just can't help himself. He enjoys being a little bit naughty. Now that he is back in my home, I see how happy he is and I'm amazed at the fact that our bond wasn't affected by being apart for over 2 years. I made the decision, I really feel he is happiest in my home with me and my family. Besides, my cats can hold their own. ;-)

UPDATE 6/30/2011: I am a seasoned cat owner and I have a knack for understanding a cat's body language and temperaments. Because Oscar still has a skittish side and a bit of "cat-titude" he is considered a special needs cat. Finding just the right home for him posed a challenge for our rescue group, but we never gave up on him. In my home he is flourishing! He is my buddy and little shadow now. He is getting along with the other cats better every day. What a sweetheart. I love my little man so much. Special needs cats are very adoptable. I hope you might consider making room in your home and heart for one... they really are very special companions.

Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescue cat.
