A Few Thoughts...

Purrs, my Catster friends.
I guess it seems a little odd to start a diary when my life is almost over. But I have some important things to say before I go.
You have probably read about me in my sister, Hannah's diary. I have always had a mouth disorder, but now it has progressed to cancer, and is growing rapidly. Because our vet said this type of cancer does not respond well to treatment, and because it has grown so aggressively, my pawrents will have to help me to the Bridge when I can no longer eat. We don't know how long this will be. It is more likely days or perhaps weeks, but probably not months.
My ninth birthday is on April 29th. There is a chance I won't make it 'til then. So I am going to have an early birthday party, probably next week, in the Main Forums. I hope you will stop by. We will paint the town red...or maybe ORANGE!

I also want to say a HUGE thank you to our special friend, Pigeon. He started a Candle Page in my honor. Thank you Pigeon. That was the kindest, sweetest thing to do. If anyone wants to visit it, here is the link. (paws crossed this works) eng&gi=Lucy

Thank you for reading my first diary.

Orangie kisses, Lucy

P.S. Just as I thought, that link doesn't work from the diary, it takes you to the main Candle Page. To see my page, please click on "SEARCH" at the top of the page, and then when it goes to the next page, click under "GROUP SEARCH", and fill in Lucy.
Sorry it is a lot of extra work!~XO


A Quick Message

Oh goodness, I have a lot to purr about today, but so little time, so I will make this a fast message, and write more later.

I have been overwhelmed with all the kind messages and rosettes that have come to my page. I am a shy girl, I stay pretty much to myself, and unlike some of my other siblings, I only had a few close Catster friends. It is so wonderful to meet many new cats. Now I wish more than ever that I could stay around longer. I will do better thanks soon, but I wanted to let everyone know how special you have made me feel.

My mouth is getting pretty bad now. The tumor is quite large, and I cannot completely close my mouth. I manage to eat, but I think I am losing weight. I always used to be a chubby girl. I lay with my face facing the wall. I don't want the other cats looking at me. Mom says if you look with love in your eyes, then I am just as beautiful as ever.

I'll be back this weekend to write more.

Orangie kisses and grateful purrs,


Saturday BATH!

Well, it's official. I can't groom myself anymore so I had to endure the indignity of my very first bath. Now mom says it's really not my first...I got about three in a row when daddy first found me as a kitten. I was covered with grease from a parking lot then. If you say so mom, I don't remember that far back.
But regardless, I showed my red head purrsonality because I put up quite a struggle. In the end, daddy was stronger, and though I gave him a few war wounds with my claws, we were both fine when it was over. Mom used a gentle pink shampoo. I asked her why she didn't at least buy an orange one!
She said she almost did, but wasn't sure I wanted to smell like papaya.
After the bath, I sat on momma's lap while she dried and brushed me. That part I liked. :) She let me sit on her desk, in front of the computer, and we looked at my page together and she read my diary comments to me. Thanks to all of you for those nice notes. Purrrr
Then I ate a double helping of tuna and shrimp! Meow!
Now I'm going to go nap for the afternoon. See you later?

Orangie purrs, Lucy

It's just a little more than five days until my birthday now.
I was going to celebrate early, but I feel pretty confident that I will make my ninth birthday, and that makes me very happy!

My mouth cancer is still growing, but there hasn't been much of a change this week. I'm still able to eat wet food. I get feed on a shelf in the living room. It is interesting that none of my brothers or sisters come and try to take my food. Even when they finish theirs so quickly, and I am still working on mine a half hour later. Mom keeps telling them that is very polite and gives them extra treats as a reward.

Many of my brothers and sisters had birthdays this month. Five had them today, and three tomorrow. We purposely let them go by quietly this year, not because they are any less loved, but because we will all celebrate together when I have my birthday party. It will be in the main Forums, and everyone is welcome to come.

I still will be writing some thank U's soon too. My zealie allowance is here, and I am eager to spend them, purrrrrrrrrrr.

Thank you again for all the sweet thoughts and prayers.

With love and lots of orangie kisses, Lucy


Thank You's~

My sweet, sweet friends,

I am so overwhelmed with all the kindness that I have been shown. I finally finished (mostly) my thank you's and they are too numerous to list here. I think I still have some rosettes that have left my page already, so I will still go and look for those. Also, momma was writing down all the candles from the candle page, and somehow the list is missing. Maybe the dog ate it? :)
Anyway, sadly I cannot individually thank those of you who lit candles unless you told me in a pmail or rosette. I am sorry for that, and I do appreciate so much, all the candles lit in my honor. My friend Callie Jean even fixed the link for me, and I will post that in another diary.
Hopefully I have not missed anypurr. If I did, please forgive me, my memory and attention span are not what they used to be.
I will also be writing soon about the upcoming party, and I will post the link here when I get the thread started. Mom promised to make a feast, so come hungry.

Goodnight my friends,
Orangie purrs, Lucy


Candle Page~Oops!

Well I almost had the link to my candle page fixed, thanks to our friend, Callie Jean, but guess what? All the candles must have gone out, and someone else named Lucy now has that page because all the candles are in Spanish, and from Mexico!
Mom had already lit one before she realized, so I hope that poor human's English is as bad as my mom's Spanish, and she doesn't read that message. *blush*

So maybe someone can start another page with "Lucycat" as the group name?
We'd do it, but momma is about as lame on the computer as you can get.

Also, the countdown continues! Three days until my birthday.
It's in the bag, I hope. My mouth is pretty grim, but I finished a whole can of Tuna and Shrimp for supper.

See you later?

Love & orangie kisses, Lucy


Birthday Tomorrow!

It's almost here, and I am so excited. It has been a blessing to be able to be here for my ninth and last birthday on Earth. Whatever the future may hold...I am ready, and not afraid. I have been shown so much love by the Catster community in these last weeks. No more sadness!

Now, it's almost party time!
Here is the URL for the party which is in the Main Forums under "Party Time and Virtual Play Dates". ual_Play_Dates/thread/671565

The time is 4pm to 6pm Catster time.
I hope you can come, or even just drop in anytime, the thread is open now.

I love you all so much.

Orangie kisses, Lucy

*Important P.S.
To make that URL work when you paste and copy it, you have to close the space between the "t" and the "u" in "Virtual. Catster puts it there in diaries. Seems like they should allow a link on their own site. Purrs~


PAWSOME Birthday!

I will have to finish this diary entry tomorrow because this little orange gal is pooped tonight!
My 9th Birthday party was so meowvwlous, and I will have many memories to remember and cherish forever.

I have so many cats to thank for making this day so special, but I will add that here later.

Loving thoughts from a grateful girl~
goodnight~purrs always

P.S. I just went to check my Candle Page before bed, and guess what it says?
"Lucy has 16 candles" "Sixteen Candles" JUST like the movie! giggle. Isn't that quite purrfect?


Need Guardian Angels Please

This is Lucy's mom.
The tumor in her mouth ruptured tonight, or early morning here.
She lost a lot of blood. I am still shaking.
We have gotten the bleeding stopped now.
Her friend Marybeth warned that this might happen.
Please pray for my baby girl.
Thank you.

I do not give up...
No way. Redheads have spunk.

Momma thanks all the angels who protected me last night, and the friends that helped her get through a very traumatic experience. See, it was May 5th, many years ago now, that her mom died of cancer, and mom saw the tumor open up, and all the memories were too strong. Momma not good with blood either.

But guess what? I'm up and running all over the house today. I even ate a little breakfast of tuna and shrimp. Later, I will get another bath. Can't say I'm looking forward to it, but I am getting used to them now.

Going to have to wait a bit to get to my birthday thank you's though...

Today is the day we are to bring home my newest little sister. She will be a companion for Zo-Zo, the little attic tabby. It seems like a bad time now, but maybe it's part of a larger plan because God knows that hearts need healing.

I'm going to go find a nice puddle of sunshine to take a nap now. It's the prettiest day today, bright blue but kind of cool.
I'll write more soon.

Gentle orangie kisses,
