Hello, its me Lucy again. Its Friday, so its my day for telling you about Lucy stuff. Mama Steph makes words for the Ragbags on Fridays, so I’m going to use her word, which is pond. (that’s the Ragtag Daily Prompt for all you non-felines who might be looking for a prompt opportunity–Mama Steph) Where […]Read More Drink Plenty More Fluids
Hello again, its me, Lucy One White. Well, after all last week’s excitement, with a grooming injury and my birthday and Mama Bets’ birthday, this week has been a little quieter. I’m happy about that. I have healed up very well from my cut and I got my staples out on Wednesday. I’m happy they […]Read More 100 for a week
Hello again, its me, Lucy One White, CENTENARIAN! Centenarian is a big word that means I am 100 years old. Yesterday was my birthday and I turned 20 years old in person years. The calculator for cat years says that means it is like a person being 100. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! Even though posts […]Read More Lucy’s Birthday Bash!
While you’re making other plans. Or so the saying goes, along with some of its many variants, including one favored by a childhood friend. “You wanna make the gods laugh, tell them your plans.” There’s certainly been some of that going around my house recently. Illnesses, all thankfully resolved, technical glitches (likewise) and then today’s […]Read More Life is What Happens
Good morning, its me Lucy One White. I’m grumpy today because Mama Steph has been all busy writing other stuff for this stoopid new Ragtag Prompt thing. This means she hasn’t been listening to me as well as she should when I Lucy have been being a dictator. I am disappointed. Mama Steph is listening […]Read More Ragtag, Bah Humbug!
Hello, its me, Lucy One White. Its been a hard week for me. First, we had a lot of raining last weekend. This is good for puddle drink, and I enjoyed that part, but every time I wanted to go outside, water would get on my fur. This makes me MAD! I flick my tail, […]Read More Lucy’s Difficult Week
Hello again, its me, Lucy One White. My Mama Steph uses writing words sometimes (aka Daily post/prompt). I Lucy don’t do that, cause I don’t like nobody bossing me around. However, as it turns out, I know a little something about some of this week’s words. These words are infect, thin, pedigree, slight, forest, and […]Read More Lucy Chats
Good morning, its me, Lucy One White. Why Wasn’t I Informed? I Lucy am forced to say this often, as it seems that I am left uninformed about very important matters. A bowl may be placed in front of me while I am in a snit, and I will not be informed that it contains […]Read More Why Wasn’t I Informed?
Good morning, its me Lucy One White. While Friday is my usual day for writing, I am going to do some extra writing today, because the word rapid is something I have very strong feelings about. Most things that arise in me have a strong sense of urgency. I need what I need and I […]Read More Hurry Up!
Hi, its me Lucy One White! We are finally having springing here, and I Lucy am going outside a little bit more. My sunny deck is nice on my bones, and there are a lot of good smells. Then we had raining for two days. My moms say that is very good because its been […]Read More Puddles and Stuff
Hello, its me, Lucy One White. Its getting to be springtime now, with the plants and animals starting to grow in the outdoors. When I was a younger cat, I liked to play outside a lot.

Hello again, its me, Lucy One White. If I am talking to you, it must be Friday, cause Mama Steph says that’s the day that my writing is done. This leads nicely into today’s topic which is Cats Don’t. I have to say Cats Don’t so often to my moms. You think they would remember […]Read More Cats Don’t
Hello again, it’s me, Lucy One White. Today I will tell you about the importance of rest. As you may already be aware, cats by their nature–we are fierce hunting animals, aka predators–need a great deal of rest. Between hunting and eating our food, we take naps, and lots of them. Fifteen hours a day […]Read More Get Plenty of Rest
Hello, Lucy One White here. I’m a little bit tired, and so I told Mama Steph that she could tell some stories about other cats. Uncle Waldo and Aunt Susie took care of her in Chicago, and got her some training on how to be a cat mom. They moved to Colorado with her (that’s […]Read More Cat Tales: Waldo and Susie–the Chicago years
Good morning, its me, Lucy One White. Today’s topic is drinking. I Lucy know that it is very important to drink plenty of fluids. I had an injury to my kidneys when I was a kitten. I drank the wrong fluid–antifreeze and it costed me one of my nine lives. I licked it off the […]Read More Drink Plenty of Fluids!
Good morning, its me, Lucy One White. Foreign is today’s writing word. I haven’t done this before, Mama Steph does it. Foreign. That means not regular in my life. I am mostly a creature of habit, I like it the best if things are regular, like meals and bedtime and sink drink and nap and […]Read More Foreign–Lucy’s Take

Good morning, its me, Lucy One White. Today I thought I would tell you a little bit about my early days. I’m remembering it a little bit cause my Moms are doing packing.

I’m back! Its me, Lucy One White. Today, I’d like to tell you a little about my words. The best language is Cat, but as my Moms are not so good at understanding Cat, I’ve also learned their language. Of course, I’ve had to adapt and improve it for my purposes. Mama Steph says this […]Read More Lucish, the Language

Hello again, its me, Lucy One White. It has been pointed out to me that my last two posts, Lucy’s Lament and Introducing Feline Fridays were a wee bit critical. While I can’t help it that I have very high standards, being a cat, and am ‘snickety by nature, today I will write about some stuff that I […]Read More Some Things I like
Thus far in my blog, I’ve mentioned a few of the cats in my life, primarily Lucy and her late brother Jules. Former neighbor Waylon had a Cat Tales episode.

I Lucy despise tardiness. I am particularly offended when such tardiness pertains to the provision of essential services. To wit: I am cat woman of some years, with serious health conditions requiring medications. Even as I dictate this report, one of my service people, Mama Steph, is rolling her eyes. Back to my medication. I […]Read More Lucy’s Lament

When I wrote the first Cat Tales post a few weeks ago featuring our former neighbor cat, Waylon, I had roughly sketched an order of appearance for the cats I planned to include. What was I thinking? These are cats, after all, known for doing things in their own way and own time, with little regard […]Read More Cat Tales–Jules
“Now cracks a noble heart. Good-night, sweet prince; and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.” William Shakespeare, Hamlet. Today we said good-bye to Jules the cat.

BA is a weaver, and is currently working on rag rugs; the purple sheet was being prepared for its next incarnation. Looking at […]Read More Cat Tales–Waylon
One of my first posts when I began blogging was about my cats, Jules and Lucy, in Living with Elder Cats. Lucy has made two subsequent appearances in The Cat Crunchie Caper and Elevate. Today its Jules’ turn. As I mentioned when I introduced him, Jules has arthritis in his hips, which makes sitting a very laborious process as […]Read More Living with Elder Cats, part 2
