Hello Mark,

I would like to take the time to tell you about a calico cat that I had. She was 19 years old when she did and she was so very special to me and my family. When Patches was almost 5 years old I had my oldest son Jimmy he was about 6 months and she saved his life. You see Mark he had very bad asthma and we didn’t know it he was having trouble breathing and the baby monitor did not pick it up. She ran up one side of me and down on my husband till she woke us up. Patches was a very faithful cat she went thru sympathy pregnancy with me and was a very devoted animal.


She died last year a week before Thanksgiving in 2006. She lived all thru me having my back surgery and when I started feeling better she started taking a turn for the worse and eventually ended up dying at home. 6 months before her 20th birthday.


I wanted to thank you for writing your book about Sprite I found it to be very heart wrenching and fulfulling to read. Thank you for writing it. Best of luck to you and your family with your newest edition.
