Orange Tabby

Being brushed, and drinking out of the faucet

not being brushed...and most of the other cats.

Favorite Toy:
she never touches a toy, even when she was young

Favorite Nap Spot:
Kitchen bar, our bed, or cat bed on the black bench

Favorite Food:
She mostly eats canned, and loves "Special Kitty tuna and shrimp"

very talkative, and always answers when spoken too.


Arrival Story:
It was a dark and stormy night...oh, sorry...that's a different story... Actually it was about 10:30 in the evening, and we had just finished work and were stopping by the grocery store to pick up something quick for dinner. My husband was too tired to go in, so I did. When I got back to our truck, he was holding a grease covered tiny orange kitten (approx. 5-6 weeks old) and his shirt was also covered in grease. Sigh...another one. He had seen this little girl running up to anyone and everyone she could find. She was determined to find a home that night...and she did!

Lucy is a loner, and would have been happier as an only cat. (Boy, she picked wrong on that account...) She loves to love on and talk to us, and if we are brushing another cat, she will come and loudly protest, and bump your hand, so you will do her. She has a thick, double coat which sheds horribly, so it is a workout to brush her! When she was about 3 years old, she developed a gum disorder, which causes her gum tissue to over produce and makes her teeth loose. We tried shots and medicines, but finally had to remove about 9 teeth. Poor baby! The disease causes her to drool most of the time, so understandably, we don't take her picture much. Lucy is our lover girl, and we hope she will share our home for the rest of her nine lives. UPDATE: (March 2010) Our sweet girl will be leaving us soon. She has cancer of the mouth, and eventually it will become impossible for her to eat. When that time comes, we will help her join her angel brothers. Until then, she remains talkative, happy...still the Lucy we have loved for so many years.

A Lover Girl's Thoughts

A Poem From Cesar

May 29th 2010 1:52 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ]

My handsome orange friend, Cesar sent a beautiful poem. It got momma crying again because she misses me so much, but the poem says everything so perfectly, we thought everyone should read it too.

How can I bear to lose you, my precious gentle one,
To know that you will not be here when my day is done?
So much of my heart, my love, have I given up to you,
How then can I stand the pain now that your life is through?
My sorrow overwhelms me, the tears so freely flow,
How can I carry on my life, with a heart that's laden so?
Then the answer comes to me from the stillness in my soul.
Remembering the love we shared will help to make me whole.
I'll hold you in a special place, so deep within my heart
And in these loving memories we'll never be apart.
You will not be so far away, your presence I will feel.
I'll wrap myself in your memory and so very slowly I will heal.
The years we shared, the little joys, the laugher and the tears
My love for you will never die, but strengthen with the years
So fare you well, my precious love, I gently let you go
And pray to all the Gods there be that you will always know
I loved you so, my little one, that love will never cease
I gave you warmth, I gave you love, and now I give you peace.

~ Constance Jenkins~

Thank you, Cesar, and Cesar's daddy. You have a heart of gold...or maybe orange...which is gold with sunshine added.

We love you.
Lucy Angel and momma


Flowers And Butterflies!

I am in a beautiful place now, full of flowers, butterflies, ladybugs (giggle) and warm sunshine. I caught a glimpse of my reflection in a stream, and I am gorgeous again! Purrrrr.

I have a new background on my looks a lot like what I see up here. I have had a reunion with my angel brothers, and with my sister, Claire. Claire and I will be learning all the new Angel things together.
Calvin met us, along with a whole group of our beloved Catster friends. Thanks Cal!
Anna sent hundreds of fireflies to help me find my way. It was beautiful!

Everyone has been writing me and mom such nice notes. We haven't even finished reading them all yet. I don't know how I will ever get to send proper thanks, but I am going to try. When I get my wings, I will come for a visit.

That's all I have time for now. They keep you real busy here at first. I think that's so you don't miss home as much, but I still do.

Love to you all, and lots of orangie kisses,


Saying Goodbye To My Brave Angel

~From Lucy's momma and daddy...

Our precious and brave girl was helped by her lifelong vet this afternoon, to quietly cross Rainbow Bridge.

We possibly waited too long, we wanted to keep her with us so badly.
She wanted to stay just as badly, and did not complain, ever.

Lucy was an exceptional cat. We looked back over her years, and she never mis-behaved a single time, she was such a sweetheart.
We would have given anything that this cancer did not happen to her.

I love my orangie girl, and I will miss her every day of my life.
I will look forward to seeing her run to me when the day comes that God reunites us.
I will open my arms wide for her and Claire, and Zack, Harry and Riley, my beloved angels.

Lucy, my in peace, and know my heart is yours.
