Memories of Patches O'Malley
The day Patches O'Malley and I came together was just another work day for me. I took a walk at lunchtime and I saw the ASPCA mobile and I went over to make a donation but something pushed me to go inside. As I was walking through the mobile a little paw stretched out from one of the cages and snagged the jacket of one of my favorite suites and there was the most adorble little calico kitten looking up at me. Well that was all I needed to see I told one of the volunteers that this little ball of fur was coming home with me. Patches you were the best thing ever charged on my credit card! I knew I had to go back to work but I was bringing Patches O'Malley back to the office with me and I didn't care if my boss would be mad. Well when Patches came strolling out of her carrier everybody fell in love with her. Remmber our trip home on the Staten Island ferry and the train? You were getting attention from everybody sticking your little pink nose and paws out of your carrier, you were quite the little diva back then and still are my sweet sunshine girl!
Patches O'Malley was everybodies favorite little calico. She was quite the flirt, she loved men and never missed an opportunity to make her presence known. When I moved into our new house Patches was the first one to check out her new home. Her sisters Princeton and Luckie and her brother Smokie were too frightened to come out of their crates but not my Patchy Girl she was always the ringleader. Now Patches is reunited with Princeton, Luckie and Smokie up at Rainbow Brige and she is the happy and healthy little kitten again that I fell in love with almost 17 years ago. Patches we all miss you so very much already, when Sammy, Spookie and Berri came in to wake me up for breakfast I had a feeling that you had already left to go up to Rainbow Bridge. I found you looking so peaceful in your favorite cloud chair and my tears started to flow, Daddy is very upset too and your "brothers" and "sister" are very quite this morning.Patches you were the last of the "Old Guard" and now the original cast of the "Fuller Court Furballs" is reunited. Patches you and I had almost 17 wonderful years together and I treasure each and every moment of them. I bet Princeton, Luckie and Smokie are happy to see you. Now Sammy won't have anybody to compete with to get handouts from Daddy and me at dinner time.
You will be missed by everybody my beloved Patchy Poo. Please give Princeton, Luckie and Smokie a big kiss and hug from me. I know you'll all be sitting on your little catnip clouds watching over us. Purr happy my little Calico Queen knowing that you will live on in my heart forever and always.
love and catnip,
Hi Patchy, it's me Mommy how are you adjusting to you new home? I bet Princeton, Smokie and Luckie were so happy to see you. Patches I've received many beautiful sympathy cards from different furbaby parents today and I've saved every one of them. I can't get over the fact that you're not here with us the way we would like you to be, but I know that one day we'll all be reunited up at Rainbow Bridge never to be seperated again.
6/3/06 Good morning Calico Queen! How are you liking your new home up at Rainbow Bridge? It will be a week tomorrow since you left us, it doesn't seem real that your not here with us. I find myself calling your name to come and have some treaties.
I started thinking about some of the cute and funny things you used to do, like when you were a little kitten you would scrunch yourself up and dance sidways across the room and finish off with a little foward tumble salt that always made me laugh. Or what about your obsession with straws how you would always steal them out of someone's glass when they weren't looking.
Even though we're far apart you are living in my heart my sweet Patchy Poo. We all miss and love you so much! Hug and kiss Smokie, Princeton and Luckie.
