As those of you who have read Lucie's diary probably have gleaned by now, she and our long-suffering Mommie moved at the end of April to a town a bit north and west of Denver. It is close to the mountains and a big lake; nearby fields have prairie dogs and rabbits in abundance, and waterfowl of all sizes fish in that lake. It would have been a wonderful place for an outdoor cat to roam and hunt--except for, of course, the inevitable coyotes in the area. Alas, I was not an outdoor cat in life anyway, and can only dream of what might have been. Lucie isn't an outdoor cat either, as she suffers from the same affliction I had to endure --declawing by the previous owner. Of course as a pampered little Persian princess, Lucie wouldn't have been allowed to roam anyway (no matter how excited she gets at the birds she sees on the balcony). But I digress. This pampered little puffball princess had a very bad habit that cost our beloved Mommie dearly. I warned her of the consequences of not using the litter box for its intended purpose, but she held her head high, little smushy nose in the air, and ignored my advice. This past week Mommie got a bill from the previous apartment complex for $900--because they had to replace the carpeting that our precious little princess used for her elimination activities! Mommie was not amused. She threatened to take it out of Lucie's Fancy Feast allowance, but we know that would have done no good and would only have caused a serious rift in their relationship. At any rate, I feel no guilt and compunction whatsoever that a few weeks ago, in an effort to remain visible, I (in ghost form, of course) overturned Lucie's water bowl one night while she was eating dry food a few inches away and Mommie was reading in bed within earshot. Guffaw!
