Patis(VVM058) was born on August 21, 2000 in the Vivian Mob. His mother was Rhian, the dominant female and his father was an unknown male. He was born in a large litter of six pups, his litter-mates were Uacari(VVF053), Colobus(VVM054), Tarsier(VVM055), Macaque(VV?056), and Mangabey(VVF057). All of the pups survived to adulthood. In June 2001 nine of Patis' uncles; Basil, Izit, Zazu, Zaphod, Yossarian, Genghis, Alexander, Govinda and Phooey left the Vivian on a roving trip and joined the Whiskers. Exactly a month later Patis and Attila also left the Vivian and joined their relatives at the Whiskers.
The adult Whiskers females had already mated with the older Vivian males so Patis did not breed with any of them. Izit was the first of the males to take dominance, but he was eventually overthrown by Zazu, who then lost dominance to Zaphod. Zazu, Izit and Basil dispersed, leaving seven Vivian males behind. On April 15, 2002, Patis was badly savaged by an unknown predator and lost the use of one of his front legs. He sadly died of his wounds that day.
