Lucy: My Early Days

 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 don’t like it when they go away. I think they should ALWAYS stay home with me Lucy. They say they need […]

Lucish, the Language

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 […]

Some Things I like

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 […]

Lucy’s Lament

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 […]

Cat Tales–Jules

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 […]

Good-night, Sweet Prince.

“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. He arrived in our lives more than 19 years ago, along with his sister Lucy. He’s been a wonderful fellow, even tempered, easy going. Such a sweet […]

Living with Elder Cats, part 2

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.

The Cat Crunchie Caper

via Daily Prompt: Caper A few weeks ago, I wrote about my aging cats, in Living with Elder Cats, prompted by Lucy being ill for a few days. This weekend, Lucy demonstrated further recovery. Coming into the house after a trip to the pet store, the bag of very expensive prescription cat food ripped open, spilling onto […]
