Goodbye Lucy, I Will Miss You

Lucy, the best working girl cat
sometime 1991-July 2011

With great sadness, I am telling the world that Lucy has gone missing for over 2 weeks. I suspect she met her time, and crawled off to a quite place to rest and go over the rainbow bridge. Lucy Cat was a great girl kitty. She was nearly 20 years old. One day, nearly 20 years ago Lucy Cat, knocked up, showed up at the front gate at that aeronautics place looking for a little food, water and a place to have her kittens. How do you turn away a face like that. So, the powers that be gave Lucy Kitty a soft pillow in the warehouse. The kittens came and grew, and all but one went off to a furrever home. Peanut her big boy stayed with Lucy to keep her company, and Lucy Cat, from then on went to work.

For her whole adult life, she has been on the aeronautics payroll to keep the vermin out of the warehouse at the big aeronautics place. Everyday she inspected the incoming boxes, and the out going boxes to make sure there are no vermin to be had. She inspected all who walked into the warehouse day in and day out vigilantly 7 days per week, every week of the year, for nearly 20 years. Lucy was a dedicated cat. In return, all she asked for was some water, food, and an occasional pet or 2. Not much for all that she did for that warehouse.

Lucy, where ever you are, know that I miss you. I still remember the first day I met you nearly 13 years ago. You inspected all of us who came to the warehouse that day to make sure we were ok to be there. And, every single time I stepped in to the warehouse to see you, you made sure you came to see me as we became friends over the years. Yeah, and you knew, I really have no business in the warehouse, but you let me be there anyway. Thank you for taking care of the warehouse, thank you for watching out for all who came and went in the warehouse for all these years. Thank you for being so kind and sweet. I will all miss you dear one. Love, pets, and purrs.

Catloaf - WCB

Catloaf! I learned what catloaf is from my brother of another mother, Tober. He taught me the word catloaf. I wanted to practice being a catloaf. Here I am, a catloaf. Notice, my front paws, rear paws and tail (that is tricky) are all in the catloaf. I think I did really well being a catloaf.

Me, Kitikata-san as a catloaf

My Portrait - Feed Me!

This is my portrait taken this morning. It is called Feed Me! Ya see, the guy got up early and fed me. Then the gal got up, and she usually feeds me. So, I was expecting her to do her normal thing, and reach into that bag of food and give me food. She did not do her normal thing. I was speechless, all I could do was sit there and wonder why she is not doing her normal thing and feed me!
