My Cat Lucy is Famous!

Saturday, June 01, 2013

Just for fun, I sent in an entry to About.com describing my cat Lucy. I did it so others could read about my Tuxedo cat if they wanted to so I never thought she would become cat of the week! emoticon

I adopted Lucy from the Tampa Bay SPCA when I lived in that area in 2008. She was a year old then , very skinny, and she is the love of my life. Here are some pictures of her and the link to the article online describing her. Enjoy!

She enjoys going in the bathtub after I take a shower to play with the water.





I was working on doing some filing at home and she wanted to help by going in the filing box to check out my work.



She loves laying inside boxes to take naps. Do you think this is the right size for her? emoticon



I now have a platform bed because of this! emoticon





Lucy and Baby (her companion and he is male) in their Valentine's picture:



Here is the link to the little article about her online:

Thanks for taking the time to read about my Lucy and she sends her love too.

Love, Chelsea emoticon

    Lucy is truly a star - I really liked the article (thank you for the link - I didn't know there was an About Cats section, and was also delighted to see so much info about Tuxedo Cats).

Isn't it amazing how they 'pick' the right person to love them? Our cat Jack 'chose' my partner, and from then on started an assault on our house until we let him move in.

    I just read your story on Lucy. Wonderful! I had a Tuxedo named Sushi. I found her in the snow in NYC where I lived. When I moved down to the West Coast of FL, she got to retire to FL ;) and she loved it (She retired, not me).

I hope you're doting on Lucy now that she's famous!

    What a lovely pair of cats! You must be thrilled to have Lucy chosen as Cat of the Week. Extra treats in order perhaps?

    Congrats Chelsea & Lucy! Very awesome emoticon
Thanks for sharing the story & I ~LOVE~ the pictures!
What an honor! Baby & Lucy are so sweet...as are you Chelsea, my friend! Lucy is such a character!
I wish for a cat, but will have to wait til I get my own place.

Peace & Love!

    Your Lucy is very cute.

I have a black and white Lucy, but she is a dog. She likes to find small places to sleep in too--maybe she's a cat at heart. She seems to like being in an enclosed space. We adopted our Lucy from an animal shelter--we've had the best pets from the shelter.

Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed this blog.

    Oh how adorable! Thank you for sharing! I laughed when I read the bit about her going in the shower and playing with the water! My sister's cat - a black and white cutie - loves to do the same thing. actually she has kind of a fetish for water... you can't leave an unattended water glass sitting around - she WILL stick her face or paw in it to drink or play! emoticon Karen

    I cried when I read your description because your loves pours through it! Good job! My little Siamese cat is only just over 4 pounds fully grown so I know how it is to have a tiny cat!

    I think I am going to invest in a platform for the same reason. My box springs is now covered with another fitted sheet, and that is now getting shredded. So many things to baby/cat proof a home, don't you think? MJ

    I think that is so awesome! It is hard sometimes to see you with the new cats - well new to me and not Bernie, Buddy and Coco. I loved Bernie! He was such a sweet cat!
Congrats on making your cat famous! I think that is so wonderful!

You are both famous now! :)

And the pictures of her and your bed totally crack me up!

    Thank you so much for sharing with us.
May I ask what is a Tuxedo cat? Does it have to do with the black and white, or her size? She is so blessed to have you for her owner, and you too to have her.
I love how she warmed up to you immediately!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
