In Memory of Oscar

Thank you all so much for your thoughts.

Sadly, Oscar was hit by a car and killed instantly on Thursday night/early Friday morning.

My daughter told me and I brought him home earlier.

Life is going to seem pretty empty now...he was a cat with a lot of personality and a very affectionate and loving companion.

I'll miss you so much, Oscar.

I am so very sorry. I know you will miss him deeply. Oscar has grown to be a friend—a close friend—through your words and pictures. I mourn his death with you.

Dear Robyn ~~ I am so sad for you on the loss of your lovely friend and
companion Oscar. I read about it on Nick's blog and you have my deepest sympathy as you sure will miss him
so much. It sounds as though it was a quick end for him and that is something to be thankful for.
Stay positive, my friend. How long have you had him? Much love, Merle.

Sad news Robyn, long term pets tend to become "friends" rather than just pets.

Remiman said...

(((Robyn,)))
I feel so sad for your loss!
We have had cats for 30 years (not the same ones), and all but one has died at an advanced age. Even so, the loss of a loving companion is always heart wrenching. More so, I think, when snatched from life too early.

Grieving is a part of the recovery process. Take the time necessary!

Robyn --

I'm so sorry for your loss. When I was a kid, my parents had two cats killed by cars. There's nothing I can say to make you feel better, but at least he died quickly and didn't suffer.

Oh! Dear! I'm so, so sorry, Robyn. I've been out of the loop for a couple of days because I was having my new laptop installed. This is so sad. I can't say anymore...this has upset me.

Lee said...

Robyn, I've tried twice to send you an email but it keeps being returned to me. I'm using the correct addy...so I don't know what the problem could be. Just know my thoughts are with you in this terrible time. I understand the sorrow you are feeling. Hugs and love.

OMG, Robyn, that's horrible. I have tears welling, as I type. I actually don't know what to say, other than let you know that I am thinking of you. Oscar was a friend, family ... not just a cat. I know you will miss him tremendously.
Sending you big hugs.
Take care, Meow

Nicole said...

This is so horrible Robyn. Oscar was such a beautiful friend to you. I am so very sorry to hear of his passing. This has upset me... I could'nt imagine how I'd be if Floyd or Jack passed away, let alone went missing. My thoughts are with you my dear friend. xox

Liz said...

Robyn, I am so sorry. I found out when I read Lee's comment on Steve's blog and I was truly shocked. Know that there are many blogging friends feeling for you and sending you love.

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Robyn, I just found out via Lee. I am so very sorry and I do know what you are going through. I know how much he meant to you and indeed you to him. I can only say that I have been there and am thinking of you and your pain. Take care, my friend. Love from Sicily.

Gledwood said...

O no I'm so sorry! Pets are sometimes more of friends to us than our friends. They don't betray us, don't lie to us, don't let us down. RIP Oscar

Oscar the Puppy Cat said...

Robyn, I don't know if you'll check Oscar's site anymore, so many have offered such sincere sympathy. I was one of those and hope that you'll read my comment. I'm so very, very sorry for you loss. A cat is more than a pet, much more. A cat is a friend, a companion, a family member. Your loss is felt by all of us as we've all become friends through are cats.
God Bless you and help you through this rough time.

Angelo said...

Robyn, I'm really devastated to hear the news of Oscar, I was really excited to visit you both again since I was away for more than a month... he reminded me so much of Nermal that I totally understand how you loved him so much... Even though I've never met Oscar and I live an ocean away, I feel the loss... I'm totally bummmed... I hope you are doing okay... take care.
