Cutie patootie Oscar was a favorite at our local animal control, but no one seemed to want to adopt him... Until Cutehead Paige W. -- all the way in Texas! -- took one look at his pouty, expressive face and just knew he belonged with her.
And the rest, as they say, is history!
|Oscar's shelter photo. We had to turn that sad face to a happy one!|
Oscar is a very special cat. He has no tail, but we didn't know that until we got him out of the shelter and over to his foster daddy, Kyle S. His shelter photo didn't show his little butt, so it was a total surprise and made him even cuter!
|Look at his cute butt!|
He is also a bit of a character. Oscar may even be a little bit of a diva. You see, he wasn't eating on his own until recently. His foster daddy was syringe feeding him, and we all thought Oscar was a big faker. But after it had been over a week, Oscar went to the vet to find out for real.
|The cone of shame! Oh, the indignity.|
But the next day he was right back to not eating. Until someone decided to try dog food... And guess what? He devoured it!
You can follow along with their transport today and tomorrow on Your Daily Cute's Facebook page and on Twitter using the hashtag #oscartransport. I'll be tweeting as @YourDailyCute, of course! Help us cheer these kitties on!
We kick off at 7:30 a.m. today!

Oscar is safe and headed home thanks to some amazing work by many amazing people. We couldn't do any of it without our super partner in rescue, Stacey of Good Karma Pet Rescue of South Florida for helping get him out of the shelter and all vetted and ready. Our fabulous fosters Kyle S. for putting up with Oscar and taking such good care of him!

And the biggest thanks of all to the Oscar's new mom, Paige W., who is the real reason Oscar is safe and on his way to the happiest life ever today!
