Arrival Story:
I got Patches from my boss's neighbor's cat. He was sight unseen and looked identical to my Friskie that I had as a child and passed away 15 yrs. before. In fact, Patches was Friskie's middle name. My friend picked out his name from a list of favorites because of his "patches".

Patches is one spoiled cat. If he doesn't get his way, he walks around whining. Not meowing, Whining! He is certainly the prissy one. But, he loves his mom. He "puffs up" big time when he wants to love on you, hence the nickname, Mr. Pufferupolous.-------------------- -------------All of a sudden, today 04/20/06, Patches fell out, stopped breathing-- I tried CPR and rushed him to the emergency clinic, where they tried to bring him back, to no avail. Preliminary results are a ruptured sac on his lung. It happened so fast, just minutes before he was his normal self. I don't know what to do, and neither does Gabby. He was only 4 yrs. old.----final autopsy, cardiomyopathy-- a bad heart. Bless his heart.

Dear all kitties: It has been only one year since I left earth to go to the Rainbow Bridge. It is hard to believe! My mom is still sad and misses me terribly. I just want her to know that I am happy, healthy and having fun with all of my siblings and cousins! Gabby still misses me too, and she is tolerating that new brother, Oliver. I think I may have liked him ?? Anyhoo, Mom, I love and miss you too!!! but am ok! Love and scritches! Patch

Hello, all--something horrible happened today. All of a sudden, I couldn't breathe and collapsed. My mom tried everything, even CPR, but it didn't help. She rushed me to the vet where they worked on me, but I had already crossed to the rainbow bridge, where I met my sis Friskie! My mom is sooo sad, she won't stop crying! She did everything she could, and I did not suffer, but that doesn't seem to help her. Also, my sister Gabby is at a loss. Please pray for my mom and let her know that I love her and am OK! Love, P

Hello all! Gabby is so excited that she got a rosette from her "boyfriend"--Whatever! I could have a girlfriend if I wanted ( which I do by the way!).Mom says that I am jealous, but I just want a girlfriend like Gabby has a boyfriend. Maybe someday my princess will come! Soon, Patch
