Our Patty has crossed the rainbow bridge . We are heartbroken. She was a great cat. She has traveled with us from one side of the country to the other in our rv for the past 8 years. She will be forever missed.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing a fur kid is always so hard. Be good to yourself and know that she is never far from your side wherever you roam.

Patty looked like such a sweet kitty. What an adventure cat! Please tell us more about her if you feel up to it, I noticed you joined in 2014 but never posted in the Forums? We would love to celebrate her life with you when you're ready.

Much love and many condolences coming your way from all of us.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
