It's 9 days now since my dear sweet Lucy left us but it seems much longer since I held her in my arms for the last time. I miss her so badly all the time but the hardest times are at night, when she came on my lap and we had a nice long cuddle and when I feed the other kitties and get 12 dishes out instead of 11 or feed the kitties chicken (Lucy's favourite).
I fostered Lucy when she was a terrified, hissy spitty little kitten of 12 weeks old. I couldn't touch her at all until she was 3 years old and had to trap her to take her for her annual vet visits. One night I was sitting on the sofa watching tv, when I felt a kittie sitting next to me. When I turned and saw it was Lucy I just couldn't believe my eyes. She soon jumped down but continued to sit by me for just a few minutes each time. One night she stayed longer, gingerly crawled up on to my lap and purred her little head off. It was so wonderful and better than winning the Lottery!! From that time she turned into the most lovable little lap cat and we just adored each other.
I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to thank her dear friends for their lovely messages and gifts.
I received the most beautiful hand-made sympathy card this morning from Tallulah, Tu-Two, Zeke, Kandi and their mommy. It has a beautiful verse and message and a picture of Lucy. When I read it the tears flowed but comforted me at the same time. Thankyou so much from the bottom of my heart!
A big THANKYOU for all the lovely gifts Lucy and I received from our kittie and doggie furriends. We are overwhelmed by them all and appreciate them so very much!

A big thankyou to all my friends for the lovely pawmails, group messages and gifts when my dear Lucy went to the Bridge last Tuesday. Each and every one is appreciated so much.
Lucy was almost 18 and I can't believe we'll never have any more snuggles together - she had the sweetest softest fur. When I rescued her she was a furry little feral kitten and was so frightened I couldn't touch her for 3 years. Slowly she turned into the most lovable lap cat who would purr if I touched her or kissed her on her head. I miss her so much.
She hadn't been well for about 10 days, was having accidents (which was so unusual for her), although on medication her arthritis was getting worse. When she refused to eat and just wanted to sleep I knew it was time for her to leave me. She was just closing down.
I just hope she's happy now with her angel siblings and friends.
I'll try to send personal thankyous to all my friends for their kindness and gifts but if I don't get round to it I hope you'll forgive me. I don't have much computer time now as I spend so much time with mum as she has vascular dementia and needs so much help. When I'm back home I try to spend as much time with my kitties as I can.
Love Jennifer (Lucy's Mum) xx

Last Thursday night I started sneezing and sneezing and couldn't stop and my eyes started watering too! Mum was really worried about me as she feels I have enough to cope with with my hepatitis. So Friday morning back to the Vets we went!!
As mum suspected, I have an upper respiratory tract infection - my lymph nodes were enlarged and I have a sore throat. Terry gave me a long-acting antibiotic jab and thought I should be feeling better by Sunday.
Today is Sunday and I am feeling a little better and just gave one slight sneeze this morning. I didn't want to eat at all yesterday but I ate a small dish of Gourmet Gold this morning and mum was able to put in the supplement in to help my liver!
Although we've all been vaccinated, our Jack had the same a month ago. He's better now, although it took 2 courses of antibiotics and I must have picked it up from him!
Neither of us are well kitties (Jack has crf) so we must be more vulnerable.
Mum's paranoid now and is imagining she's hearing one of my brofurs or sisfurs sneezing all the time!
Please purr for me and that no more of my brofurs and sisfurs start with it too!
