A Sad Caturday

We will miss you & love you forever, little buddy!


I am sad to have to tell everyone that my big brother Oscar, passed away earlier today. Mom said that he has gone to a place called the Rainbow Bridge. I don't know much about that place but mom told me he's probably chasing a butterfly in an open field right now. I guess that means that even though we're sad, that Oscar is finally feeling better and doing what he loves.

Oh, Oscar... I'm sad and a little happy all at the same time today. It's sad to say goodbye, but what makes it a little easier is knowing you're at peace and comfortable.

Henry, I know you'll do a good job taking over Cats Who Twitter! Give mom a big hug from me and tell her to give you one too...

That's so sad. He was the one who encouraged me to join cats who twitter. Nosetaps and gentle headbutts. Caligula.

I am so sorry that Oscar had to go to the Bridge. My sincerest condolences and soft purrs.

Poem For Cats

And God asked the feline spirit
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
And, as a cat, you know I am most able
To decide anything for myself.

Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the whiskered angel
But I must come slowly
For my human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

But don't they understand? asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is....forever and ever and ever.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

Oh we are so sad Oscar - you were one the very first kitteh friends we made on Twitter! You were such a nice guy, made us feel right at home. Your brother has big paws to fill. Now you can eat all the tuna you want and play with as many mousies as you can. Safe passage our friend.

So sad to hear that you have passed, Oscar. You were the first kitty that I followed on Twitter. Rest in peace, and maybe you will run into my Oscar (a girl kitty) and Garage Kitty over by the Rainbow Bridge.

From Lamont's Dad: Oscar (and his staff) reached out and touched the hearts of so many anipals and humans. That is why his loss impacts so many of us. These photos are a testament of the love shared between Oscar and his family. I've shed a few tears today because I sympathize with the loss of a companion... But I've also shed a few tears of joy knowing that Oscar had a long life with a very loving family.

From Lamont: I'm grateful for my short time with Oscar - he had a lot to teach a young kitty like me. See you at the Bridge someday my friend.

Morris said...

Oscar, I've felt like you were my big brother in the few months I've been on Twitter. I've looked up to you and wanted you to be proud of me, and I'll keep doing my best to live up to the example you set because you, my dear friend, were what a mancat should be.

Oscar's mummy and Henry, me and my mummy are so very sorry for your loss. We are looking at the photo of Oscar's collage that mummy took before she posted it to you, and remembering how happy your boy made everyone.

Sending you all love and nosetaps and more love and more nosetaps,

Morris (@morriscat) and Kirsten (@nelliejean)

purplebear said...

My sincerest condolences to Quadpawd, your entire family and all of your anipals who I know are soooo sad to have learned about Oscar's passing.

I never got to know Oscar but from reading all the words from his friends is obvious how much a very special cat he was. So, am very sorry I wasn't fortunate enough to have known him.

I too am glad at least he is no longer sick and am sure he's happy to be with so many of his other friends that he has missed and know they be happy having him with them.

So sorry to hear about Oscar! He leaves a hole in many animals' (and their humans') hearts. He will be missed but he will always be loved.

"No amount of time can erase the memory of a good cat, and no amount of masking tape can ever totally remove his fur from your couch."--Leo F. Buscaglia

We're sorry for your loss--it is a huge hole left where Oscar used to be, I'm sure. I'm sure our Henry was there to great him at the Bridge.

Love and hugs to you all in this difficult time.

The Creek Cats said...

We just want you to know that we are purring and purraying for all of Oscars family and friends who are left behind. We are sending you all gentle purrs and comforting vibes.

Oscar, until we meet again my pal, you were one of the very first kittehs I met on twitter and your kindness and support to other anipals touched my heart.
You were and are a true anipal and we are all much better for having known you my pal. You will leave a big hole in the heart of all anipals who have known and loved you.
I will never forget you.xox

I didn't even know of Oscar until I read the announcement at @sockington, yet just from reading about him I feel like I lost one of my own. I have 16 family members waiting for me on the bridge & I'm sure they have a game of something going with your Oscar by now. Take comfort in knowing you gave him a great life and he left a huge legacy. As you may have noticed, he is still gaining followers. They must figure Oscar will be the one to start twitter on the bridge. My thoughts & prayers are with you. Teri (@inquarters14)

Forever Foster said...

We are so sorry to hear of Oscar's crossing. We are sending huge purrs to you and your mum, Henry. We know that he will have been met by many friends and admirers when he crossed to the Bridge. Oscar, you are a shining example of the power of friendship, and we are better for having known you.

Purrs,
Fui and Suey

AnnaBelle Circus Kitty said...

I am so sorry to hear about Oscar -he always encouraged me, and was one of my favorite anipals on Twitter. We just exchanged messages a few days about about CWT. My hoomin is especially sad. We will both miss Oscar's cute face and his tweets. Luvs to Quawpad and to the momma.

Stripey (@ThatStripeyCat) said...

So sad for you all. * nose kisses * to you and all your family!

Marjorie Dawson said...

Coming late to leave a message but I miss Oscar. He was a good guy and I know you will miss him.

blackkitt said...

I'm so sorry! He was a beautiful boy. But sounds like he had a long happy life with you.

Hope he meets up with my three angels who've crossed Rainbow Bridge in recent years. While it sounds like a magical place, I hope my last kitty, Casey, who is just a month older than Oscar, stays here with me a little longer.

***big hugs***
