Osito had a very tough life before coming to the Sanctuary. He was living in squalor with several other cats in Martindale, TX. Fortunately, a kind person discovered them and took them all in to be fixed and adopted. Osito could not be adopted through the shelter as he was sickly and had a damaged eye. He came to the Sanctuary where we had his damaged eye removed and got him healthy again. Osito was such a sweet boy who wanted nothing but love and attention. He did not care to be picked up and held, but petting him ... oh yeah! He had the habit of walking with you between your legs, leaning on one of your legs, then the other as you walk.
Osito made his journey across the Rainbow Bridge on April 15, 2022. He battled with intestinal lymphoma for the past year but declined rapidly over the past week. His health had declined to the point where we made the difficult decision to say goodbye. We know he's walking between someone's legs in heaven...run free sweet Osito...we love you and will always have a special place in our hearts for you.
