R.I.P. Patches aka Kitteh

I got some sad news yesterday.  The beautiful black & white kitten that popped into the dive shop in September had to be euthanized a couple of weeks ago.  He had four fused vertebrae that were causing him daily pain (and a heart murmur, and blind in one eye...poor little tuckka had multiple problems) and there was nothing that could be done to improve his quality of life. It was a heart-wrenching decision for his family.

Goodbye, Little One. No kitten was ever given as much love and cuddles from two families. You brought pure joy to all of our lives and it was a blessing to have you.

I'm sorry about Kitteh, Kristin. Poor little thing, but how lucky to have been so loved by so many people! And had Kitteh not found her way to you just think... she would have lived a lifetime of pain. You did so much more for her then find her a good home. *hugs*!
