Update: It sounds like Patches will be permanently cared for by her foster family! But she still needs some sponsors to help. Read on!
Earlier this week, I brought you a film about Senior pets. Today, I bring you a senior named Patches.
This dear girl spent 19 (that’s right) years in a home that was suddenly no longer able to keep her. Although I don’t have the reasons behind it, my heart can only rest believing that it was because her human could no longer care for herself or some other equally justifiable reason for letting this dear girl go at such a golden age.
Patches has a touch of arthritis and is on thyroid medications. She’s also got the occasional upset tummy, but she’s also old enough to vote, so that counts for something. Currently, Patches is being cared for by a generous, loving foster family with the support of Tabby’s Place in Ringoes, New Jersey, and it sounds like she may be able to stay. Patches is very optimistic.
If you think you could give a bit of extra money and you’d like to help support her financially, you may do so here. She could use a little help with her medical bills. She’s on a fixed income at this point and Caticare isn’t really covering it.
Let’s all send purrs of comfort to Patches. Even though her little body is still doing well, we’re sure her heart could use a little healing.
