he came here by accident on aug 23 2007. a neighbor thought our tigger woods was out and loose. except tigger was safe at saints and pat the cat was obviously a look-alike stray. we never did find his owners so pat stayed with us.
he was adopted into a home for a couple of years but he started having real mouth issues and consequently got all stressed out and began spraying, so he came back to saints.
we had all of his teeth removed and that pretty much solved his sore mouth and spraying issues but no one was ever interested again in adopting him so he lived here year after year.
last year curt bonded with pat and became his permanent foster home. they were a good match. curt loved pat and pat loved curt, they became great friends.
i thought they would have many happy years together but apparently not. pat became ill a few weeks ago and despite treatment, he continued to spiral downhill.
today he ended his life with his best friend at his side, his vet visit today could offer no further hope.
pat the cat was a truly great cat and i am so glad his final year of life was in his own home with his very best friend.
rest in peace pat and huge hugs and thanks to curt for loving him and becoming pat's family....he did not end his life unwanted or alone...he had a loving family of his very own.
As your Mom Curt, I know how much you loved Pat and how very lucky he was to have you as you are a very special person.
