The cat with an alias

Around the beginning of this year, I noticed a lot of larger-than-normal lost pet notices. There were some for a lost dog around Beachwood Canyon, one written in tape wound through chain-link fence near the Hollywood Freeway entrance on Sunset, and then this one that was written on red flocked wallpaper:


I was going to feature this one not only because of the paper choice, but also because of the fact that it was noted below the photo that poor Oskar has no teeth and need medication, but then this postcard showed up in our mailbox:


Here’s the back:


It’s obviously the same cat, but I’m curious about the discrepancies between the sign and the postcard. The cat’s name is spelled differently, and Alex’s name and number are on the sign but very conspicuously removed from the postcard. I feel like there’s something more here than just a lost cat. Oscar/Oskar, if you can make your way back home maybe everything will be right again.
