Redlands, California Jun 4, 2024 (Issuewire.com) – A heartfelt campaign has been launched to find a secure home for Patches, a cat living with her owner, Jonathan Vishio, who is experiencing homelessness. The pair have been struggling on the streets for over a year, facing numerous challenges that have left Patches suffering from severe anxiety and PTSD.

Campaign Overview

In the heart of Redlands, Jonathan Vishio and his beloved cat, Patches, have faced the harsh realities of homelessness for more than a year. Jonathan’s unwavering dedication to Patches’ well-being highlights the deep bond they share, but the streets have taken a toll on her mental health. Now, they are seeking community support to provide Patches with a safe, stable home.

Patches’ Journey and Trauma

Patches’ trauma began when Jonathan sought help from a local rescue group while she was pregnant. Tragically, her kittens succumbed to a virus at the rescue, leaving her deeply distressed. The situation worsened when a coyote, attracted by her scent, circled their tent, heightening her anxiety. Although she has been spayed, the emotional scars remain.

Campaign Goals

Secure Housing: Provide Patches with a stable environment for recovery.

Baby Trailer: Ensure Patches can accompany Jonathan safely.

Consistent Cat Food Supply: Maintain Patches’ health and well-being.

Community Support and Awareness

This campaign has garnered attention, partly due to a video by Cats of San Bernardino showcasing Jonathan’s dedication to Patches. Community support is crucial to achieving the campaign’s goals and ensuring Patches finds a loving home.
