It is with feelings of deep sorrow and loss that I tell you Oscar passed away peacefully in my arms at noon today. He was 13 years old. The complications of his many years of fighting pancreatitis had become too severe and both his vet and I agreed it was time to put him down to avoid any further suffering.
I know that Oscar had many friends and fans on Facebook and Second Life– anyone who knew me at all online became, by extension, a friend of his too.
If you wish to honor Oscar’s memory, please make a donation to your local ASPCA or animal shelter.
