A big thank you to Michele and Kayla for the story of finding Oscar!

Michele writes: My 12 yr old daughter has been searching every shelter up to 2 hrs away looking for the OLDEST cat to give a loving furever home. We came across Oscar, who will be 18 in June, at BARKS. His owner passed away and he has been with BARKS since January. Filled out the application and was told I can come Saturday to meet him. Bought him a beautiful new cat carrier, pounce treats and turkey cold cuts since that is his favorite. When we got there and saw Oscar, my daughter fell in love with him (along with all the other cats too). Fortunately for Oscar on May 26, 2013 he found his furever home. My daughter sang to him the whole ride home. We got home and she said... "Here's your kingdom Oscar!" He was a bit scared of a new place but became comfortable by that night. He is so wonderful. He loves attention which he get more than enough of. He has thyroid disorder and is super skinny but with all the turkey, wet food and treats all to himself, hopefully he will gain weight in no time! Oscar loves to sit on the bed and lay all over my daughters papers. He is so handsome with gorgeous eyes. He has been purring since he arrived so I know we made the right choice for Oscar! We love him already! Thanks BARKS!
