eating (especially Fancy Feast), giggling, cuddle-time (petting and purring), going on the "porch" (summer), lying beside the fireplace (winter)
going to the vet, being picked up, grooming, children and other animals being added to the family, and most of all-- *medicine*!
Tassels! And catnip gingerbread man, kitty teasers (especially her new Christmas grasshopper)
Favorite Nap Spot:
in her kitty bed in the hall, in front of the fireplace (winter), on the bed next to my pillow; on the "porch" (enclosed balcony) in summer
Fancy Feast canned (especially salmon)
being cute and cuddly; she was a regular purring machine; and she could squeal like a pig (when being combed)!
Lucie came to me after her previous mom adopted a Chinese baby. She hadn't been too happy about another cat and dog in the house, but the baby was the last straw. She hid under the bed and quit using her litter box. I had just lost my cat of 14 years, so was happy to take her in!
Her medical history is a mystery at this point--we've been together over 3 years now; and unfortunately I've learned the poor little lady does seem to have a propensity for intestinal upsets. At this point her condition is stable, but she'll be taking medication indefinitely.
Update 12/22/07: The Rainbow Bridge has its newest kitty angel. It is with a heavy heart that I must report that Lucie crossed the Bridge shortly after I left her at the vet's for boarding yesterday morning and went on my overnight trip to Denver. She apparently died of a heart attack, as she did have a history of cardiomyopathy. I am still in a state of shock...am hoping Gremlin was there to hold her paw as she crossed the Bridge and is helping her to adjust, along with all the other kitty angels. This is one heckuva Christmas present for her Mommie, that's for sure. :(

went back to visit Mommie last night. At first I tried to show myself, about 3 a.m. when Mommie got up to go to the bathroom, but all I could manifest was just my (fluffy) tail. This startled Mommie but she kind of giggled, thinking that she was seeing things. So then Gremlin said "Maybe we had better try and do it in a dream"! So when Mommie went back to sleep, she dreamed that we jumped into bed with her--Gremlin went first, to show me how--and she petted and petted him and he purred. So then I plopped down on the other side of the bed and let her see me, and turned my little purring motor on...and Mommie petted and petted me too! So now she knows I can come and visit her too, so she isn't grieving so much. Thanks for all your help, Gremlin! I'm sorry I used to be afraid and jealous when you would come visit Mommie in the night, and now I know you were also trying to make me comfortable with the idea of going back to the Bridge with you when it was my time! Purrs and angel giggle-sparkles, Lucie

Has anybody seen the quiz mentioned above? (It's at the website of the Scoop Away kitty litter site: http://scoopaway.com/quiz.php) You answer some questions multiple choice style, and they tell you what historical celebrity character your cat most resembles. I, of course, am "Mewie Antoinette"--giggle giggle! Description: "Your cat thinks she's royalty, she keeps her nose in the air and prances around like a Queen. . . " I think they have my personality nailed! "Let them Eat Fancy Feast!" giggle giggle. . . Purrs, Lucie-lu

Well! If I thought the carpet cleaning ordeal last June was bad, it was nothing compared to moving from Denver to Longmont. Mommie says she had all the work to do! And had to deal with short-circuited power outlets, flat tires, rain, and all other kind of hassles--but I had to get shut in the bathroom for hours without seeing what was going on! All kinds of noises were banging around outside my door. And Mommie was even gone for awhile to get the tire fixed! And then I had to get in my carrier again, and she drove us away from Denver up here to Longmont, and we had to go through the thing with the movers again in reverse, me sitting in the bathroom (and complaining, to no avail) while Mommie directed the movers where to put the furniture and boxes. Finally they left and she let me out, and oh--what a wonderful place to explore, so many great hiding places! I was cuddly with her last night because she needed me, but spent most of today hiding under the bed--just because I could! (She used to have a lot of stuff stuck under the bed). At least it's pretty here, with lots of nice trees to look at instead of that stupid construction site, and the mountains are closer, and Mommie says there is a lake right down the road where she plans to go walk once she gets settled.
Of course I won't get to do that--you wouldn't catch me on a leash, and Mommie says a lot of people walk dogs around the lake too, and Uncle Dave has seen foxes over there when he was walking his dog! So guess I'd better stay here and watch out the window. I hope we like it here.
