When Oscar was first diagnosed, I started researching gastrointestinal lymphoma, and came across the story of a cat named Nate who had survived. Like Oscar, he had a similar mass removal / bowel resectioning, and the two were both quite young. (Oscar had just turned 5 when he was diagnosed, and Nate was 6). Now, years later, a book entitled Making Rounds with Oscar chronicles a doctor's discovery of the animal's special gift. The author, David Dosa, is a geriatrician at the Steere House Nursing Center in Rhode Island where Oscar lives. He begins the book by explaining why he made the unusual choice to specialize in care for the elderly.

Oscar and Molly are believably dog/cat-like -- and also kid-like -- as they foolishly get lost in the woods separately and then decide a truce is their best chance of survival. They start to question things they've always been taught and consider the possibility that different doesn't equal bad. Download free eBooks of classic literature, books and novels at Planet eBook.
