I just HAD to respond to this one! Usually I just lurk because
*touch wood* my four little furbabies are still fine.
But it's just such a co-incidence -- there used to be FIVE
furbabies -- a mother (healthy) and her four HCM babies -- Buttons,
Patch, Claude and Tuppenny.
Buttons was also the first to pass, unexpectedly on December 19th
last year. I list their names in birth order, but this is also the
order of severity of disease. Buttons was the weakest, and patch is
now the most severe -- though he doesn't know that, and I have to
watch him when he's outside to stop him from climbing trees!
Anyway, that's beside the point. It's just funny to see another
person with a "Buttons" and a "Patch" (or "Patches") in the family.
The difference is that in my family, Buttons was the girl and
Patches is the boy!

- Hi Debbie,
I know this is such a sad time for you. Buttons' spirit and the loved you
shared will always be with you. Please do post his story to the group when
ever you can. Even though I already emailed you, I wanted you to know that
we are here for you when ever you need us.
Purrs and hugs to you, Patches and Cocoa
