October 20 - Lucy's 9th Birthday
« on: October 16, 2013, 06:14:58 PM »
I was just talking about her last night at work.  Someone asked me how old she was now.  She was young... left all alone in my work parking lot.... crying her eyes out in the dark.  I scooped her up, left work, dropped her off at home, and went back to work.  Left hubby a note saying... "The cat in the spare room, that looks like Leonard...only smaller... is our newest addition."  At the time, we only had Lucky and Leonard...no dogs. 

Lucy is a scream.  When she wants something, she wants it NOW.  She will shred paper (always something important...I think she can read.), knock things off of counters or shelves, etc. to get my attention.  My favorite story is... I was using the computer one day.  She was sitting on the desk next to me.  We were "talking."  She wanted lunch.  It isn't time...I tell her.  We have a discussion.  She doesn't like my answer... she hit me upside the head!  Hard to believe a 10 pound cat can pack such a punch.  lol

We give our pets birthdays, according to how old the vet thinks they are, on their first vet visit. 

Lucy being introduced to Leonard, once she got a clean bill of health.  We didn't go the slow introduction route.  Leonard didn't have a mean bone in his body.



All grown up.  Posing for the camera!

Wow! They look like they could have come from the same litter--except Leonard had some tan color in his stripes and I don't see it in hers.

Pretty cat!

"They" said children grow up fast, but so do the furkids!  Wow, does time fly. 

Lucy has just a little tan coloring around her face.
