Good-bye, Patches

Patches has been adopted!  We took him to his new home today.  He'll be an only-cat there, and have his human completely to himself...  although he did well with other cats, I suspect that he secretly wished for more one-on-one attention, so I think that this should please him immensely.  I happen to know that he's in a really good home,  because he's going to go live with my mother-in-law!   I was secretly hoping for this to happen all summer, and was thrilled when she told us that she would like to adopt him.  I mean, he gets his own home, one that I can feel good about sending him to AND we'll get visiting rights!  How much better does it get than that?

So, good-bye and good luck to you, Patches.  You were a good napping buddy while we had you here.  I will miss you!  But this is the very best kind of good-bye that there could be.  


  1. Yay Patches! When my people adopted me, the shelter people thought that I'd love being an only-dog even though I did well with my foster siblings. They were right :)

  2. I agree! It sounds perfect for everybody! Congratulations to Patches and to your MIL!

  3. A great outcome!! Peace of mind and happiness!

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

  4. I was a little scared by your post title, WHEW!! What a wonderful home for Patches. A great place with all that love AND be able to visit, couldn't be beat!

  5. Congrats to you, Patches on your 'Furever, Purr-ever Home'!

  6. Hurray for Patches and your Mom-In-Law! Great news! :D

    Waggin at ya,

  7. Mom saw the title in her reader and almost choked until she read the whole post. MOL We are so glad Patches is going to have a home all by himself and with someone you know well so you get visitation!!!

  8. Fantastic! Congratulations to Patches and his new family. :)

  9. That is wonderful! Me thinks Patches will be happy! If me could not live with my Mommy and Daddy, Me would live with our friend Gayle. I could be a only cat, but still see Mommy and Daddy!
