Oscar the Cat came to us when his caretaker had to move and there was no one left to care for him. He had some growths on his nose that turned out to be cancerous – common with cats who spend a lot of time in the sun.

Fortunately, with the help of the Hope Fund our veterinary team were able to remove the growth, and though Oscar does look a little different he is deeply loved by his adoptive family, who sent us this update:

“I adopted Oscar in February of this year. He is doing really well and has come a long way since having the skin cancer removed from his nose. Oscar is a happy, energetic, great kitty cat. I am so thankful to the shelter for all that was done for him.

He is growing in his boldness and still remains super sweet and easy going. He has adapted to the missing teeth and tip of nose like a super trooper. I continue to enjoy watching how his keen mind works. Even though he lives entirely indoors, he does not seem bored at all. It is my hope that the cancer never returns and that he lives a long, healthy life. You all have given him a second chance.”
