My Little Helper

I’ve been on vacation for a couple of days now, and as you can see, Lucy has adjusted nicely.


She has stepped up eagerly, cheerful and willing to help.


Her energy exhausts me.


Lucy sez


“Momma still has not turned on the heat. And it’s supposed to get really cold tonight!”


  1. No heat? Poor Lucy!

    karen ws last blog post..Tap Tap Tap…Anyone in There?

  2. Silly Lucy! That’s why kitties have fur! No need for human-made heaters. :p

    Just snuggle under blankets with her instead. :p

  3. Lucy has this vacation thing down pat!

  4. Lucy baby, needs a heater under the tree, for free. Tomorrow PA is supposed to be frigid – and you’re not that far away. Just saying. Maybe Lucy would like to winter with me? My husband likes it warm, and we’re retired and home a lot so she would have company to snuggle with. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Work, work it girl, W-or-k…

  6. Here we are in sub-tropical Louisaiana, and my Meezers huddle in the sun puddles on the tile floor. A cat can’t be too warm in the winter…not constitutionally possible.
    Wonder if she’d tolerate knitwear? (Sorry, just a momentary failure of logical thinking.)

  7. Wow, Miss Lucy sure does seem to have a knack for vacationing! She should start a vacationing school and teach folks like the DW how! ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Lucy’s energy deficiency has a real plus side, I’d imagine. She doesn’t want to help you or meow loudly to be fed (for the umpteenth time), so you have a fighting chance to get something done — or take your own nap!

  9. Wow! She looks even more “helpful” than our beasties!

  10. I can tell by the way she is “helping” you that the poor baby is freezing! Tell her to do what my fur baby does and crawl under the blankets on the bed.

    mais last blog post..fourth timeโ€™s a charm!

  13. Whouf – when I got up, the friendly weatherdude on Channel 4 was saying something about “eighteen degrees”… brrr!! I actually had to bring out the *warm* hat today. (Still wearing fingerless gloves, though. It’s still not *that* bad out.) We have our heat on though. My husband, poor thing, has never wintered in Alaska like I did growing up.

  14. Vacation sounds wonderful. Alas I have to stick it out until Wednesday. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. When I lived in an apartment, I never had to turn on the heat (and I live in Wisconsin). It was a corner unit, and it faced the patio/swimming pool, so it was well insulated.

    Happy vacationing!
