Patches ~ Passed at 22 Years Old (Kitty) Memorial Campaign

Thank you for visiting my memorial page. Your donation will help the ASPCA provide life-saving programs and services to millions of animals nationwide. Please join me in celebrating their life and pay tribute by making a donation to give abused and homeless animals a second chance at life. Thank you.

Patches was a fantastic kitty with an enormous heart who lived a very long, healthy life of 22 years. The oldest living cat now is 24 years of age, so she came close to being the Guiness Book of World Record's holder as the oldest cat living. When I was just 16 years old, a couple of kids from my high school found her on a median in the middle of the highway and brought her to my house. She was only about 6 weeks old. They were going to take her to a club in their backpack. That was NOT o.k. with me, so I insisted on keeping her for them, even though I wanted her for myself. Well, they never came back for her so I knew that she was mine,... and for a very long time, I might add. She was such a sweetheart,... all I had to do was make eye contact with her across the room and she would start purring as she would frequently sit with her paws daintily crossed. She was a healthy cat was no issues. She passed peacefully in her sleep on January 18, 2015 after us having 22 of the best years together. She left behind her best feline friend of 20 years, Ebony. They are both a big example that cats can live a very long time and one should keep that in mind when adopting a new furr-ever friend. Animals can be a long responsibility so please donate to the Patches Memorial Campaign so the ASPCA can help educate people before adoptions so they can make the right decisions on a life long commitment with their future furr-ever friend. :)
