Arrival Story:
I got Patchy & her sister Scroggy at the same time, they used to scare my old dog chasing each other, even up the curtains! Now they can't stand each other. She is always talking, you only have to look at her & she meows!

Patchy is the Boss, don't you dare try to cross her when she's in a mood!! Everyone's got scars of trying to move her off something, but apart from that she loves me & gently sucks my neck while pawing me. It must be because she was taken away from her mother too soon, the other cats stay clear of her. Smallest but toughest. My poor wee Patchy has now got epilepsy that started when she was 4 yrs old, I hope that she will return to being her contrary self.

Goodbye my wee darling

I got home from work this morning & found my wee baby lying in the driveway, she must have had a stroke or heart attack as it didn't look like she'd had another fit. Her blood levels were only checked 2 weeks ago & the level of medication was at the right amount.
She never really got back to normal after the fits, she was quite vicious if you tried to move her & was food obsessed which she never was before. She would still come to me for cuddles though & was only sleeping on me the other night.
I have spoken to the vet who said that it was probably a brain tumour judging by her symptoms & history.
I will really miss my wee girl not meeting me when I come home & her talking to me all the time.
I love you so much my wee Patchy


2 long hard weeks

My poor wee Patchy had a fit on the 5th of November, the vet thought it could have been a reaction to an insect she might have eaten. She was fine for about 6 days then had another one, over time she was having them constantly & was rushed to the vet, sedated & blood tested & rehydrated for a few days. She has severe epilepsy, there is a gene that causes it, we have her litter sister Scroggy , so hope that she hasn't got it as well. Patchy is on medication for life, but she is not the character she used to be, there is a possibility she might never be as she was. The other cats won't go anywhere near her, they hiss & run off when she gets near them. I hope my wee baby can come back from all this.
