Oscar was heartbroken when Dexter passed away suddenly after a serious illness. He had a huge void in his life that he couldn’t fill.
Oscar’s family was required to acknowledge Dexter’s death had a direct impact on the cat’s health. Oscar’s battle with Inflammatory Bowel Illness (IBD) reappeared, and his health quickly deteriorated, all because he missed his doggie friend too much and was constantly emotionally stressed. Oscar’s family considered adopting a brand-new furry companion after noticing Oscar’s waning will to live.
They learned about Jude, a frail Pit Bull puppy with juvenile bone disease, at that time. Jude was blind and suffered from spinal deformities, so his family decided to adopt him in the hopes of providing him with a better life.
Jude, despite his physical limitations, was a master navigator and a master of life. Oscar didn’t take long to notice him because of his happy-go-lucky and always-on-the-go personality.
While Jude was a complete nut with other dogs, he had some inkling that Oscar, who was depressed, was in some form of pain. He not only accepted the cat with his soothing love, but he also helped him break free from the shackles of his crippling grief.
Jude has been in Oscar’s life for over six months now, and the two have truly become each other’s refuge. What a touching story!
He has undoubtedly inspired everyone with an uncommon perspective on living life to the fullest, despite all odds!
