My mommy just saw that I am Cat of the Day today! Then she was horrified to realize she never updated my page when I went to the Bridge. This is what she put on her FB page the day after I flew away:
"Our beloved fur kiddo & Princess Patchez passed away last nite as the girls & I raced her to the emergency vet. She was getting better, walking around, jumping on the counter, snacking on tuna all day, but then around 9pm, she began to to get so much worse. I had to get the girls out of bed, throw jackets on them, wrap Patchez in blankets & run to the car. She passed away with my hand stroking her face & the girls saying "Patchez we love you" just as we pulled into the parking lot. I am trying to be strong for the girls, but my heart is broken. All of this happened in less than 24 hours. My hope is that she knew how much we loved her & that we did everything we could for her. She was our first "little girl" and was our Princess & Hostess w/ the Mostess. She loved wearing outfits, scrunchies, makeup & dresses. LOVED IT. She would sit on the counter & pull my hand towards her face as I put on makeup or did my hair. She was my little girl for over 16 years. We miss her so much, the girls know though that she is in heaven, at the Rainbow Bridge with Jonas, Navin, Sue, Buffy....all of the fur kiddos we've lost over the last few years. I am trying to be positive for them. I am sorry that they had to go thru that last nite with me."
My parents believe I had a stroke that day. They are not sure what happened & it happened so fast. I was feeling better & better all day & eating & drinking, and then within the course of an hour, I was going downhill fast. My last day on earth was spent w/ my beloved family & it was exactly what I wanted. My mommy still has not really come to terms w/ the fact that I'm not there anymore. I hope she knows that I am watching over her always. She & my human sisters miss me so much. They got me a huge heart-shaped balloon & let it go outside & watched it until they couldn't see it anymore. It came right up to Cloud #9 & we all took turns playing with it.
Thank you so much for the congratulations & gifts! I am so honored to be COTD! I only wish I was spending the day being pampered & spoiled by my family.

Every cat at Rainbow Bridge is honored to have a real princess at the bridge! We had an all day party to celebrate Patchez' Cat of the Day status. It was very exciting watching the Scrunchie contest--I sure wouldn't want to be Patchez and have to choose between all those pretty scrunchies. I think she made an excellent choice of wearing them all, even though we could only see her eyes above all those scrunchies she was wearing during her parade! Can't wait for the sock hop later!
Whoops, the ^^ comment should have been from me! My sister Hilda isn't at the bridge yet!
I'm at the Bridge, and I am so glad Patch, that you had a wonderful long and happy life. Mommy looks at your pictures and smiles. She thinks you're wonderful.
With much love,
