I met Pat through a mutual friend about 15 years ago. I was going through a tough time, but Pat included me and befriended me at that time. Soon we were travelling together and went to several cat shows together. She had a great sense of humour and could talk about anything. My husband and I bred Scottish Fold cats and Pat adopted a couple of our cats. She loved her animals. It was always a treat to visit her in Schenectady. I will miss these times together.
