I’ve had Patty Cake for 13 years. She started as a family pet that we adopted on a whim and ended up outliving her brother and our dog, which none of us expected. Always a lover of food, nothing could get in the way of Patty and her meals. If she wasn’t eating, she was begging us for her next meal, even if she’d just eaten an hour ago. She was a cherished part of our family, and I was so excited when she got to come live in my apartment with me while I finished college. Making the decision to put her down was excruciating, but it was definitely her time to go. I’m glad she got to slip away peacefully at home, right next to her food and water bowl, where she loved to spend her time. We’ll miss you Patty Cake, and I’m so glad you got to be a part of my life!
