Bachelorette of the Week: Patches!

Update: It sounds like Patches will be permanently cared for by her foster family! But she still needs some sponsors to help. Read on!

Dear world,

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.

"Is that my new home coming to get me?" - Patches.

“Is that my new home coming to get me?” – Patches.

Patches sure loves boxes.

Bachelorette of the Week: Sinder!- ADOPTED

You guys!

Today, I want you to meet someone, but before I introduce her, I want you to play this (it’s 3 seconds long):

Excellent. Now that you have the Killer Instinct (one of my favorite 1990’s video games) character shout out in your head, please use that every time I use this kitty’s name.

Meet Sinder! (cue video game voice)

Sinder. She's more like a gently warming heating pad, but that's not a good name.

Sinder. She’s more like a Gently Warming Heating Pad, but that’s not a good name.

Now, I’ve heard that if there’s one word to describe SINDER (you know what to do), it’s mellow. She’s apparently quiet and polite, nothing like her video game alter ego. In fact, she’s entirely unable to launch fireballs from her fist or set you on fire, both excellent qualities in a cat. Her previous owner lost his home (due to no fault of Sinder) and she was surrendered to Cat Guardians in Lombard, IL along with her housemate Cleo (there was no Cleo in Killer Instinct, sorry.)

Sinder is very peaceful and gentle. She loves to sit on your lap and keep it gently warmed, not lava hot as her name might imply, and she loves to cuddle in bed. Sinder’s special issue is that she’s 11 years old and has some thyroid problems, but you can work with the rescue to learn how to manage them.

If you’d like to meet Sinder (cue the voice,) contact Cat Guardians immediately!

Hurry! Sinder needs a lap!

Look. She's glowing with love. And heat.
