One day a kitten showed up in an apartment and made it his home. He’s turned into a boss cat.
Patty the tabby kitten entered an apartment
A stray little tabby found its way into the basement of a New York apartment building. He was so brave and just went inside. Caleigh Farragher, a resident of the building, spotted the little ball of fur all by himself.
When she called the kitten, the little miracle came up to her and decided to join in. “The maintenance door is usually locked, but it was open (that day) and the cute little kitten came running to us,” Caleigh told Love Meow.
The tabby followed her into her apartment, determined to stay.
Little tabby kitten named Patty
Caleigh looked around for a mother cat and other kittens but couldn’t find any. The weather was bad and she couldn’t leave the kitten out to take care of herself.
She greeted the little guy in her house. He immediately became a gossip and was incredibly friendly. He scouted the apartment, claiming every corner he touched, and crawling towards Caleigh as if to say, “You are my person now.”
A few days before Caleigh found the kitten, her grandmother, a lifelong cat lover, sadly passed away. The tabby showed up in the right place at the right time and brought much comfort and healing to Caleigh.
“It feels like my grandma came back to us through the kitten,” Caleigh shared with Love Meow.
She decided to name the tabby patty after her grandma because she thought the kitten was a girl at the time. After a trip to the vet, they discovered that Patty is a boy, but the name stuck.
The cute kitten quickly took over the house like a boss. Caleigh woke to a cat alarm, licked her face, and followed her into the bathroom as she prepared for the day.
As Patty got bigger, his energy soared and his personality came out in full swing. The little guy quickly figured out how to play fetch when needed.
He was always on the move, playing and climbing with his unbridled energy. He was wild and always on the lookout for harm.
Patty the cat has grown up

“He always jumps and runs. He likes to play fetch! He got really good at it. His favorite toy is a wrinkled receipt,” Caleigh told Love Meow.
The tabby has grown by leaps and bounds, but it remains a loyal kitten parrot – it will leap on Caleigh’s shoulders and oversee her morning routine.
He follows his people around the house and never wants to miss the action.
Caleigh always has a little work colleague by her side when she’s at the computer. Patty insists on offering a helping paw and even tries to type on the keyboard on behalf of his human.
The tabby boy just turned one year old today. He’s brought so much joy and laughter since kicking paws in Caleigh’s house.
“I’m so glad we found him. He’s my favorite troublemaker.”
