Oscar the Survivor.
Oscar ,my feline friend
the three legged cat,
attacked by a Staffordshire bull terrier
we thought that was that.
took him to the Vets,he lost one leg
he made an amazing recovery
full of grit,he'd never beg.
a true survivor,he's lived on till eleven
the way he is,a long way from heaven.
thankfully the attack dog,has passed away
can't say I'm sorry,I've had my say.
happened when he was three,
he's twelve years old
he's faster now than he ever was
he's even more bold.
he's very game,maybe a bit mad
saw him fight a fox,I was worried just a tad.
he won the battle of wills,came out the winner
fox off very quickly,made to feel the sinner.
he will live to a ripe old age
maybe he will surpass fifteen
he has to calm his emotions
he can be rather mean
most strong willed pet,
I've ever had
i love his grit and determination
when he goes I'll be very sad.
Will power in droves.
this cat has defied all the odds,the vet gave him a slim chance after his attack.he had crushed bones,internal damage,eventually his leg had to be removed.after a few weeks his spirit was inspirational.he hobbled around on three legs as if he'd been that way all his life.never showed any signs of pain or discomfort.thankfully he's still my right hand man till this day.
My wee buddy.
if I could measure guts ,on a scale of ten
Oscar would top it again and again.
survived being attacked on two occasions
lucky first time,second was a more serious situation.
he's battled on, he's never given in
been through a lot,he's destined to win.

if it had not been for the people's dispensary for sick animals,our cat would never have made it.they operated immediately and brought our cat back in to our lives.he was very close to death after his attack,but the PDSA worked their miracles and saved my daughters and our family cat.a charity that doesn't receive any government funding.
it never ceases to amaze me how pets affect your emotions and generally become a member of the family.they endear themselves to you with their antics and affection,irrevocably touching your heart .when your pet suffers,you as a family definitely suffer as well.you feel badly if your not there for them.
Not my favourite by any stretch.
when we initially got our cat,I was not totally sold on the situation.i was not the biggest fan of cats.I've been a dog person all my life,but after a while he got under my skin and now we can't imagine life without the wee guy.
cats are by far the most intelligent pets I think.everytine my cat and dog battled in play fights,usually the cat came out on top.considering I had a Rottweiller and he's a small cat,it's no mean task getting the better of a vastly more huge adversary.
Two close pals.
Mind changes every day.
our family dog recently died,I honestly think our cat misses him.he often stares at photos of the dog,or stares at things that belonged to the dog.i think they formed a tight bond.they were pretty much in each other's company all day long.unusual considering the old myths that cats and dogs are forever mortal enemies.there was never any signs of hatred all the time they were together.
