Patches, the Pet of the Day
Name: Patches
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Cat
Home: Toronto, Canada
   One winter night three years ago, my son was walking through a parking lot when he saw a cold, scrawny kitten. Patches arrived in my son's jacket that night. A little heat and a lot of food fixed all his problems.

    As an adolescent, Patches enjoyed going outside, getting into a fight and coming home bleeding. We developed a feline first-aid station right by the back door, and "patched" him up several times. All his wounds healed nicely, but he still has several scars on his face.

    Patches has always been curious about how things work. His ambitions in life are to complete his thesis, "the unified theory of toilets," and to become a fat cat.
