Even though I have tried many times to make Patches be nicer to me, she just doesn't get it. So, I decided the little koala on the headboard of the bed would be a wonderful friend. He is so nice, he doesn't swat at me, or give me the evil eye, nor does he chase me. He is very cuddly, too, and is always around for me to snuggle. I have a real live kitty best friend, now, too. It is Trixie, of The Meezers.
