Quick Bio:
-mixed breed-cat rescue

Lucy loves good conversation and it doesn't matter if you don't have anything to say because she can do all the talking. She loves being scratched, doing battle with her sister, sitting in the sun and spying on the outside world, and being fed.

She does not like to be held, loud noise, loud children, fast movement, the vacuum with it's squeaky wheel and suction of doom.

Favorite Toy:
There is no better toy than her soft bodied sister who she enjoys slapping around. She has a plastic bag addiction which she would keep secret if she could only find a way to get rid of the evidence!

Favorite Nap Spot:
On the long pillow in the loft, anywhere people have to sit so she can mark them with her fur, the pillow made just for her to sit in the sun by the window, the nest of blankets on the couch.

Favorite Food:
Friskies canned food with the special gravy. Balogna, pork, turkey, olive oil. CHICKEN.

Lucy is a very good at being a fur bomb. If she isn't happy with you she will cover you in clumps of orange hair. She greets visitors and sniffs everyone's shoes and feet with her cold wet nose. She is the best little hostess!


Arrival Story:
Lucy found me at the St. Croix County Humane Society in River Falls, Wisconsin. While looking at other cats in the cat pen, I noticed her standing on a little platform with a few others. She had a mattery eye, was skinny, and not in great health. She was just a kitten, only seven months old, so I felt sorry for the poor thing. I patted her little head, but she wasn't the sort of cat I wanted, so I turned to look at some other older, healthier ones. After a moment little Lucy jumped jumped down from the platform with a toy in her mouth, walked up to in front of me to my feet, dropped the toy, looked up at me and meowed. That was it. The choice was made. How could I not adopt her?

The first couple of years with Lucy were difficult. She's a lovable cat, and very sweet, but she was always fighting diarrea, upper respiratory infections and the runny eye. But eventually after many visits to the vet and lots of medicine, she became a healthy little girl. Lucy likes to pretend she is a weak and sweet little girl but on rare occasion (because she's so sneaky) she can be seen flipping her sister Star and throwing her on the floor where she goes for the soft flesh of the belly with her sharp teeth. Lucy is also crazy for catnip. She's usually very laid back around people she knows and loves to come out and talk to humans that visit.

Since I'm the sort of cat who has so much to say, dad thought it a good idea for me to get started on a diary where I can share all my stories and thoughts.

Today I awoke after a short nap (my sister and I were up playing for most of the night) when dad finally decided to stop hitting the snooze bar on the alarm clock. I'm happy because today is his day off, so he'll be home more and able to spend some time with me. Mom has college, but it's a short day for her. More time for me! Not that I need them to be around a lot for me to be happy. I just like for them to be here for when I feel the need for attention.

My sister, Star, is on a diet. I like the fact that we get to eat really good food, Eukenuba special diet, or something like that. It's really yummy. But mom and dad only feed us a measured amount, and they take it away after a certain amount of time. I like to eat slowly and often throughout the day, so this has taken some getting used to. That's the part I don't much care for. Not having my food around all day so I can eat as I like. Star's a pig, so it's no problem for her. She eats a lot in one sitting most of the time. Oh well. I'll be glad when the vet says she's at her optimal weight. Does that mean we get to go back to having food out all day like before. I really hope so, but that's not really my decision.

It's the second day of May, and it's still cold outside! I never go outside, so being cold doesn't mean a whole lot, but I would like to be able to sit in the sun with the window open so I can breathe the fresh spring air. Maybe tomorrow?
