There will never be a right word to describe the sense of hopelessness that comes from ʟᴏsɪɴɢ a dear one. For Oscar the ginger cat, his friendship was Dexter the Pit Bull was the best thing in his life. But when Dexter unexpectedly ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ following a serious illness, poor Oscar was consumed with ɢʀɪᴇꜰ. There was a huge void left in his life that he didn’t know how to fill
Oscar’s family was forced to acknowledge the tangible repercussions of Dexter’s ᴅᴇᴍɪsᴇ on the cat’s health. Oscar’s sᴛʀᴜɢɢʟᴇs with Inflammatory Bowel ᴅɪsᴇᴀsᴇ (IBD) returned with a ᴠᴇɴɢᴇᴀɴᴄᴇ and his health was soon on a sharp decline, all because he missed his doggie buddy too much and was emotionally sᴛʀᴇssᴇᴅ all the time.
Seeing that Oscar’s life was slowly ʟᴏsɪɴɢ meaning, his family came up with the idea to adopt a new companion for him to help ease his ɢʀɪᴇꜰ. Jude, a sɪᴄᴋ Pit Bull with juvenile bone ᴅɪsᴇᴀsᴇ. Not only that, but he is also ʙʟɪɴᴅ and has a spinal ᴅᴇꜰᴏʀᴍɪᴛʏ that makes it difficult for him to be adopted. And that’s when Oscar’s family heard about Jude’s case, they adopted him in the hope of giving him a better life.
Despite many health problems, Jude surprised everyone with her personality. Jude has an active, fun and extremely energetic personality. Even if Oscar is sad, he has to smile when he meets him.
While Jude was an absolute goofball with other dogs, he somehow knew the depressed little Oscar was suffering a different kind of ᴘᴀɪɴ. He not only embraced the cat with his comforting love, but gradually enabled him to break free from the shackles of his overwhelming ɢʀɪᴇꜰ.
In the six months since Jude was adopted, the two have become good friends. They play together, eat together, even sleep together. Jude becomes Oscar’s mental health tonic as he ɢʀɪᴇᴠᴇ over Dexter’s ᴘᴀssɪɴɢ. Now Jude and Oscar are inseparable.
