Despite her difficult beginnings, Lucy is a sweet natured and friendly kitten. Six months old, she has eaten well and grown to more than double her original size. She is catching up fast with the older cats, although her slim features make it unlikely that she will be a large adult. There is something almost Oriental about her profile and her voice has that deeper, throatier quality of a Siamese/ Burmese cat.
Lucy follows me wherever I go. Here, we are waiting for photos to load onto my blog.
She has just caught a Catnip Mouse, again.....
Forest Cat is her best friend. He washes her face every day.
The Ginger Man loves playing on the stairs. A three-way game of feline Tag, up and down, with Forest Cat and Lucy.
When he has had enough, he will lie down and watch the other two. If Lucy gets too bold and jumps on him, she might receive a smart smack from a paw, but there are never claws involved.
Last week, I introduced a collar for the first time. It unclips very easily if caught and is flourescent, in case Lucy wanders out into the lane one evening. It also has a bell, to warn the birds that a predator is around.
Lucy has only been out a few times, with me, but soon I shall have to be brave and let her explore while the two other cats are outside with her.
Lucy now sleeps with the other cats and dogs. Unfortunately, one of the dogs has lost his bed.....
