Happy Lucy Day

I know it’s Valentine’s Day, but more importantly, today is Lucy’s official birthday.

Lucy was a rescue cat when she came to live with me in 2003, and all I knew about her birthday was that it was in February 2001. We decided to make her official birthday halfway through the month. What could be more appropriate than Valentine’s Day?

And I got to stay home today because of the ice storm, so the birthday girl has had plenty of attention.

Here is Lucy opening her gift from her Auntie L-B. What can it be?


It’s a little knitted catnip ball!


Lucy sez:


It’s my birthday! Catnip for everyone!


  1. Belated Happy Birthday Lucy!!
