Patches the Weredude is a supporting character of the Bunnicula.
Patches used to be a normal stray cat. One night, he was chasing a mouse and was shocked to find out that the mouse was really a weredude, which meant that he could change from a mouse into a human by the light of the full moon. The mouse named “Steve” then decided to pass the curse onto Patches, and he transformed into a human by the moonlight.
Steve then taught Patches how to act like a human and all the wonders of the human world. When Steve left to find something, Patches met Bunnicula and the two became fast friends. However, Steve came back and tried to destroy Bunnicula, because he claimed that there was an “ancient war” going on between werebeasts and vampire animals.
Patches was conflicted, so he decided to invite both Steve and Bunnicula for a little chat. When Patches asked why Steve hated Bunnicula so much, Steve replied it was because Bunnicula scared him in the park one time and it made Steve want to destroy all vampire animals. Luckily, Patches convinced the two to become friends and look at what they have in common, and the feud was over (or so Patches thought).
In his cat form, Patches has orange fur with a mustache and yellow sclera.
In his human form, he has the same color of his fur as his hair, is overweight and wears a white undershirt, blue gym shorts, with white, socks, and pink bunny slippers.
Patches is a very laid-back and fun loving cat. However, he sometimes forgets about the fact that he's a were-dude and not fully a cat anymore.
