Oscar Young, age 10, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on Monday, March 13, 2023. He was born on March 20, 2013 and was adopted from the Hamilton County Humane Society as a young kitten.
Occy, as he was loving referred to, loved to snuggle on Mom's Lap, and get chin scratches, and butt pats. He also loved crinkly toys! He never turned down any sort of kitty treat.
Oscar was a very sweet boy. He could be skittish at first, but once he got comfortable with you, he would come out for pets. His family decided to go to the Hamilton County Humane Society "just to look" after losing their emotional support cat, Ying. Oscar's long white ear hair drew them in. He had several other orange and white siblings, but his markings were their favorite. His mouth looked like he had gotten into something he shouldn't have. He snuggled up with his new momma right away, and she knew they were the perfect match!
He loved nothing more than to snuggle with his mom. He was always fighting with Mia, his pug sister, for the prime position of mom's lap. Once human sibling, Eli, came along...the 3 of them were always fighting for mom's lap. There was just no better place in the world to be!
His mom had this to say about what he meant to their family: He was with us for 10 years and had been through a lot. A major car accident, pregnancy, a new human family member, and so many more. He was a wonderful support to mom. He was very tolerating of his small human sibling. He really took on the role of emotional support animal. Every night, he would lay on one side of mom and Mia was on the other side.
Oscar is survived by his mom, Ashleigh Young; Dad, Jon Young; human brother, Eli Young; littermate, Bo; and dog sister, Mia.
“The loss of a cat is immeasurable but so is the love that is left behind.”
