They had another cat, called Klaus, and he acted like a sidekick to Oskar. Their pairing really hit off, and they became an internet sensation.

The Szydlowskis used the fame for good purposes. Along with uploading the antics of the pair online, they used Oskar to promote adoptions of special needs animals as well.


Oskar’s death has shook the online community to it’s core. The Szydlowskis have recieved condolences from just about everywhere.
