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 bushy orange fur with a mustache and yellow sclera.
In his human form, he is quite slovenly. Patches has the same color of his hair as his cat form's fur, 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. He talks in a manner similar to a stereotypical Californian surfer.
One of his good friends.
At first, Chester was shocked a human could understand until Patches revealed his origins. Patches had passed on his curse to Chester allowing the cat to become a human, Chester was able to see and live out the wonders of humanity and bonded with his new friend. In fact, knowing the downsides of being a human at night and a cat during the day, Patches only semi-cursed his fellow feline in a way that "isn't even a full bite", and thus was able to cure Chester permanently (and temporarily change himself back into a cat prematurely) before the two of them could end up arrested by the police for grand theft auto.
One of his good friends.
Patches and Bunnicula seem to be well familiar with each other with the letter even introducing him to his friends Harold and Chester.
Because of their similar slow wit, the two are good friends. Although there is not much interaction between the pair, they seem to have no problems.
Steve is the one who made Patches into a weredude.
Patches initially try to eat Steve while he was in rap form but Steve changed into a human. Steve then decided to pass the curse onto Patches, and he transformed into a human by the moonlight.
Patches and Steve then became good friends, as Steve 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.
There hasn’t been any interaction between Patches and Mina, as she regards him as “weirdo” for talking to the pets unaware of his curse and their friendship.
Seem to have a minor friendship, as Arthur took a liking to Patches the very moment they met, and thus offered the weredude a place to stay in one of the apartments with a lower rent if any at all. Of course, Arthur has no idea that his new friend and neighbor is a cursed feline, and thinks the spell checked text messages Patches sent to confess this fact is nothing more then the guy just complimenting himself in several ways and trying to be funny.
