Edit:  We have finished collecting money for the cat shelter.  Thank you for your generosity!  I am in the process of getting a framed photo to send with the check so Adidas can watch cats play all day every day.

I am going to donate $50 to a cat shelter (Kitty Harbor -no kill shelter in Seattle only a couple miles from his house) in his home city on behalf of GStwin.  Would people like to contribute to this?

Paypal details: johncall (at) hotmail .com .  The money raised will be an open book -I will provide screenshots of the money received so no funny business.  Seeing I don't get any money coming in, basically any payment I see will be considered a donation.

Donations are now complete.  I will mail out a check with a note explaining who Patrick was and how we wanted to honor him.

edit:  We are donating $418 dollars!

UPDATE:  I contacted Kitty Harbor, they are aware that a donation is inbound next week.  They obviously are very pleased we are honoring him in such a meaningful way

In fact I should print out any messages for the shelter posted in this thread also, and include with the check.

He wouldn't care about flowers anyway.  So I have decided the least I can do is honor him in a way I know he would appreciate.

I am going to donate $50 to a cat shelter (Kitty Harbor -no kill shelter in Seattle) in his home city on behalf of GStwin.  Would people like to contribute to this?

Paypal details: johncall (at) hotmail .com .  The money raised will be an open book -I will provide screenshots of the money received so no funny business.  Seeing I don't get any money coming in, basically any payment I see will be considered a donation.

I want to keep this open until May 12 (1 week).  At that time I will mail out a check with a note explaining who Patrick was and how we wanted to honor him.

I'll never forget ya Patrick!

Chipped in, this is a great thought. I know he would fully approve of this and is smiling down knowing the local kitties are getting a little extra help.

Update:  Already at +$350!!!  No goals set, no donation too small.  Even a dollar will feed a cat for a few days.

If you would like to tell tell the people at the shelter, or even if you do not donate, anything about Patrick please post the message here.  I think it would be nice to let them know why we are doing this, and what he was like.

I think his address was:
4025 39th Ave SW
Seattle, WA 98116

This is based on having been to his house and then using google maps to figure out the address.

I have a feeling someone would have already stepped in to take care of the cats -- a neighbor or one of his employees perhaps. If not, I know at least one of those cats is an accomplished mouse and bird hunter so they should be okay until help arrives.

If you live in the Seattle area and know where Patrick lives please read the blue text in the  "in leiu of flowers" thread in this forum, first post.

Just contacted Kitty Harbor...all 4 cats are with a friend of Pat's
