Lucy: My Farewell Tour

Lucy One WhiteHello again, its me, Lucy One White.

Today I am doing what might be my last posting. As you know, I am a cat of some age. I am not as strong as I once was, and my eyes aren’t working so good. I don’t always see stuff very well, and I forget what I am doing some of the time. I have good moments and not so good moments.

I am doing a lot of resting. I drink plenty of fluids still, especially if one of my moms helps me at a drinking station. I have a new one on my deck that I call a Porta Puddle. Its okay, although I like the one on the hose box better. My moms get confused, because sometimes I will get a little lost and walk into stuff, but if I Lucy want a drink, sometimes I will walk outside, walk around the deck and jump right up onto my drinking station and get a drink without missing a beat.



My eating is different, too.  Somedays I don’t feel hungry and my moms get all worried, and then other days I eat really good. Yesterday was a good day. I ate a whole egg yolk–that’s one of my favorite things, and I had a shrimp, and two pieces of turkey, and I even ate some cat food. I can’t always see my food, so its better if my mom keeps putting the food in front of me. I eat a few bites, and then we do it again.

Nighttime is different, too. Its harder for me to see, and its easier for me to get confused. I do night eating and then it takes me a while to remember what to do next. Sometimes I get lost and I do yelling until I remember what I want to do or a mom comes and helps me. And then sometimes I do really good.  Last night, after I was fussy for a long time, I jumped up on the bed and climbed up on Mama Steph and went to sleep, and I sleeped good, I didn’t even wake her up at 4:15 like regular. She was surprised when it was 5:45 and she woke up with me still resting nicely.

There is a cat in Switzerland called Tabby who does writing, too, and she writes about counting lives and moving into a tenth life after a while. I Lucy did some counting and I think I am on Lucy life 8.5. So I might be transferring soon and going to visit my brother Jules. But, remember, I am a cat and so I might stay around for a while yet. I might be like one of those rock stars and have a lot of farewell tours. We’ll see. Right now, I’m feeling a bit peckish, so I think I will have Mama Steph make me a little snack.

  1. Tabby here, so do not despair. We got eight lives more than a mere human, so it proves how we can do it. And don’t forget you get a 10th life into the bargain, just waiting for you where you can relax in the eternal corn chambers and enjoy the mice population. In the meanwhile, there are still things to do. I am a youngster with my 16 years, but where there is a tin of tuna fish and a human with opposable thumbs to open the tin, there is always a way. Will be sending you a few telepathetic dreams tonight to help you sleep well. We only meet online, but you know how it is with us felines. Otherwise too many paws and hisses in the way.

  2. Lucy, I hope this is not your last post. I will be praying for you. Maybe you find the water outside better because you can hear it. Have you had your thyroid tested? Many older cats have trouble with it and just need a pill. XO

    1. Thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers. I’ve been hyperthyroid for the last 5 or so years and take medicine for it every day. I also have some kidney trouble. I’m doing pretty good today. We will see.


  3. oh, I hope you have Farewell tour. And then a Farewell Farewell tour. And then a This is Really the Last Farewell tour. And then the Farewell Tour Rerun. And then lots more. Midnight, Pinkie and I will wave at you from the audience each time you yowl!

  4. This reminds me of our precious Little Bit. Pretty much the same story. It’s so sad to watch and we feel so helpless. Nothing we can do but love them and help them where we can.

    I’m glad you had a purrfect Feline Friday. May today be just as good. My best to your mom. ♥

    1. Thank you. It is hard to watch, and I so agree that we are challenged to love them all the way through. Lucy is currently curled up snoozing away on one of her favorite window seats, so I’m answering her mail for her (the least I can do, she informs me ; ) ).

  5. Enjoy the simple things Lucy, and keep making those humans run around after you- it gives them a purpose remember- it’s good for them. Signed YetiCat (currently using Mama G for a hot water bottle on this cool morning, and dictating this comment) 😻
