OUR DARLING OSCAR PASSES AWAY!!

Oscar has been part of our family for 10 years. He was the most favourite cat of all the family and visitors. His personality and funny ways and intelligence was overwhelming.
Last year, when he was a little unwell, we were told he may have a tumour growing. It was news I was always dreading with Oscar, as being a Persian, they do have weaknesses. He surprised all of us and the vet and kept going, still eating and being his usual funny self.
The past 4 months we have noticed a difference in his energy levels. he still tried so hard to be himself.
Just 2 weeks ago we noticed his weakness and his legs were starting to give way. he continued to get up and we fed him by hand, Still purring. When Mark, our vet visited him last Tuesday, he told me that it was maybe time to say goodbye. I slept with him, in the kitchen whilst he lay on his favourite bed and his head on his favourite cushion, for 2 nights. It was the most awful time for everybody saying goodbye to him before they went to work. I stayed and arranged for Mark to come after his surgery.
I put on some very relaxing music and sat and cuddled him. I walked him into the garden to sit on my laps in the sunshine for a bit, then back to him bed.
He was sleeping when Mark arrived Oscar then lay his head on my hand as if he knew and I held his paw and just cuddled him. It could not have been more peaceful for our Special Boy! God Bless you our Beautiful Oscar. We miss you so much!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
