If there is anything anybody needs to know about me is that I love my cat. My cats name is Patch and he is my son and I did give birth to him. He is an American Short Hair cat, he is gray and white and his birthday is on October 29th, 2021 and he will be a year old this month.

One day in the month of February I seen a post on facebook about a cat that was up for adoption at a local shelter. Well when I seen the picture of this little kitten I just knew that he had to be mine and that I needed to adopt him right away. So I begged my parents to let me keep this kitten in their house while I finished school for the semester, and they let me!

Patch is a different kitty. When he was just little his eyelashes grew into his eyes. Because of this he had to get surgery on his eyelids to make sure that they would not only grow back into his eye but so that they could get the lashes out. This made him half blind in this eye, which is his left eye.

Since I got Patch we both have realized that we are soulmates and that we should never be separated by any means. I was meant to see that post on facebook and he was meant to be my best buddy for life.
