About Patches:

This is a chronicle of the rescue of an injured cat and how he became a part of our family.

While the Patches story will have a happy ending, it nearly didn't, considering how hurt he was and that the county would have put him down due to stray cat over-population if we had left him with them.

We took a risk bringing a hurt cat into our home, which is not something that I recommend that everyone do. A stray can be a health risk to your own animals and bringing home too many, animal hoarding, means that you can't properly care for any of them. However, I do hope that everyone does what they can -- even if you can't take in an animal yourself, you can volunteer at a rescue organization, donate to shelters, and make sure that your own pets aren't out adding to the injury and over-population problem.

13 July 2010

  Another stop by the boutique pet store and we now have more healthy cat food (I'm expecting to go mildly insane attempting to research and find the best possible food for the health of each cat) and tags (Jack will be re-collared tonight, after months of us being unable to find the safety collar that he lost somewhere in the house).   Patches is starting to lick the Neosporin off of his wounds, which is leading to some infection, so he may need an anti-biotic when return to the vet.
