This is the story of Patrick

Patrick in BCHS care

Patrick, the orange short-haired Tabby kitten, was barely a month old when he, along with his cat mother (Danica) and 4 siblings (Jeff, Gordon, Leslie & Janet), were left in April 2013 in a box on the porch of Bond County Humane Society. Their mother was very healthy and well-socialized and she passed along her calm, happy personality to her kittens. When Patrick and the other kittens were about 3 months old, BCHS featured them, along with several other litters, on our Facebook page. Many online followers viewed the photos and stories and some were inspired to consider adopting. After being assured that new kittens, when carefully introduced, can usually get along with pets already in a loving home, a local Bond County couple applied to adopt little Patrick to add him to their family.

February 2014 - an email from the people who adopted Patrick:

Just thought I would give you an update on our kitty! We adopted him in July of 2013. Patrick (renamed Oliver) is doing great! He has gotten so big. He really enjoys naps on mom's or dad's lap and running around the house at top speed. He likes the bathtub (when it isn't full of water, that is) and he gets along with our other kitty, Morgan (adopted [from BCHS] in 2010), except when she isn't in the mood to play. He really is a fun, energetic and playful kitty, and we are so happy to have adopted him. His story really touched our hearts and we just knew he was the one for us.

Thank you so much!!
