Oscar Wilde Delacroix

Oscar was my first pet as an adult and I became a real cat mom when he entered my life. As a kitten, he was found on the side of the road in Clackamas County and then brought to the YMCA on SW Barbur Blvd. where my ex-boyfriend worked at the time. Oscar was a very handsome, black and white tuxedo cat with beautiful green eyes. He was very agile, coordinated, and intentional. He was very caring and cuddly when he wanted to be, but always at his own discretion. Oscar liked to perch upon high spots, loved looking out the window, or hide out in odd places. His fur was silky soft and he liked it when I would scratch his neck and chest. He had the quietest purr that you could barely hear but you could feel the vibration. He liked to sleep in my bed near my head on his own pillow. Oscar was my morning kitty alarm, often waking me hours before my own alarm would go off. He hated having his picture taken and was very regimented. He was very vocal and would inform me when it was feeding time or time to go to bed. He was my steadfast companion for over 17 years and he will truly be missed. Oscar passed away on Sept. 1, 2018.
