    My condolences to Red and everyone at the hen house on the passing of dear little Patch. Thank you, Red, for posting such a wonderful memorial to Patch. Made me cry. It was good to learn more about her adventurous little spirit. She will be missed.

    I'm so sorry to hear about little Patch, Red. I know you did the right thing for her, but it's still a hard thing to have to do. Deepest sympathies to you and all who loved her.

    Patch will be dearly missed, Red. You did the right thing, and she would've appreciated it. RIP Patch.

    I'm sure Patch lived a wonderful live under your care Red. Your love has had a remarkable effect on Patch's life. She will be deeply missed.

    She put up a good fight against the tumour - it was a few weeks now since you made the decision not to operate wasn't it? I'm glad her passing was so peaceful.

    Mel is in shot such a lot tonight - perhaps she's seeing Patch off to the Rainbow Bridge. Condolences on your loss. xx

    Red--so sorry to hear about Patch. She was a real fighter and I'm glad she went peacefully, surrounded by love and being stroked.

    And, it's good news that Mel wasn't the cat's vicitm a few days ago....

    That is a wonderful observation Kate. Any therapist who brings her dog to work knows that some animals do indeed show up for things like this. Any farmer too, eh Lynn? And any one who loves animals.

    It makes me feel like there is a dimension of existence (a sixth sense in a way) that humans don't experience the way some other animals do. Holly knows just a little bit before I see it in a person's expression that a client is going to a place of deep feelings. She goes over and sits with them. They usually have no idea she is there. And she never does that otherwise.

    I love the idea the Mel is helping with Patch's next adventure.

    Keeper of the hens

    Thank you everyone this thread has made me cry (in a good way). Joe is coming over today to help me put Patch to rest right next to Jayden and we can say our final goodbyes :(

    She was a fighter, and I hope Patch is happily running about in mousie-heaven now with her mum and her sister, having a great time.

    Seeing pictures and reading about Patch was moving, especially knowing how satisfied any privileged animal would be, to be cared for by Red... no matter how short their stay may be.

    Aw thank you Trev... :heart:

    Patch was burried today under the same tree as Martha & Jayden. Joe held her as i dug a small grave and then we both said goodbye and covered her up :mellow:

    She is in heaven with the others - no doubt about that Red. RIP little Patch. xx
