Big news at the Ruggles household! Patches has a new buddy! See the Announcement. Shadow has joined our family officially, after a somewhat rocky start. He was a bit sick when we brought him home, with weepy eyes, sneezing and coughing. The vet did tests for a couple of really awful things that aren’t curable, and would cause a return to the breeder if he tested positive. Happily, all the results were negative and he just has a bacterial infection, like a kitty cold. He is getting better, and Shadow and Patches are already getting along great! Shadow just wants to play, and Patches just goes along with him. They’ll keep me laughing while I quilt, I’m sure.
