Finally - my human is so lame...


If you wait long enough (I have learned in my short life) everything will happen (eventually).   Problem is I take after my mom, I am afraid, and patience isn’t my biggest virtue.  Considering that she is like me, you would think that she would understand the importance of me joining such a cool club like this and immediately help me write my first post and introduce myself... Especially since I am the youngest member.

Well, if you thought that, you’d be wrong.  She took so much time activating the link that it expired.  Seriously, how embarrassing is that?  I gave good hard thought about keeping her, or trading her in for a more prompt model, but since she is actually a lot of fun, and a lot of her delay in helping me stemmed from her using all her spare time playing with me, I decided to cut her some slack - although I did issue a stern warning this type of action shouldn’t happen again.. And if it does the consequences will be very severe... I think she got it.....

So, finally... HI!  I am Lucy!  


You can find me at the beach.  Some of you may have know my brother, Alex.  He was the best. And I am following in his footsteps! I am the best too (If I say so myself)

I am very lucky, he already did the heavy lifting and trained my parents.  So, my work here is minimal... I have only been home for two months and they are already wrapped around my paw.

I love to spend my days playing - although my mom is a little tiring - it is hard having to entertain her, looking out the window, and exploring my home.  I am so lucky because when I was born my future was very bleak. My mom and my four siblings were at a kill shelter. We were rescued when I was only a few days old. I grew up in foster care and when I was two months old I found my forever home.  My siblings also all found homes as did my mom - although I think mine is the best... especially since I don’t only have great parents, I have lots of blog friends!


And I am a member of the Tabby Cat Club - yay me!

Oh, and one more thing I have a cool giveaway of cat toys and stuff on my blog - check it out!

XOXO
Lucy

Welcome, Lucy, we're glad your human finally got her act together and did this post for you!

It's helpful, isn't it, to have pre-trained humans. They usually need just a bit of tweaking here and there. :-)

Hi Fuzzy! If you call what I have to do with my mom a "little tweaking" I can't even imagine what my brother had to do to get her this far... He already is my hero, but i think he may need to be knighted!

Welcome to the Tabby Cat Club!

You're lucky your human was pre-trained. Ours was too but she still slips now and again (well...maybe more than that!)

Hey there, Lucy- That's right, pre-trained humans are what our lives are all about, and don't ever let them forget that. Take it from an old guy!! Bye cutie!!!

Hi Lucy, I am so glad you joined the TCC. (Sigh) training humans is hard work, but some cat has to do it. ~Socks

Hiya Lucy! It sure is nice seeing you here at the TCC. :)

How awesome that Alex pre-trained your Mommy and Daddy. Good job getting them wrapped around your paw, sweet one.

Hugs!

Athena said...

You have a lovely view there :)

Hilary said...

@florida fur kids - I am glad my human isn't the only one who slips up.. what is with these people anyway?

@Sushi - HI!!!

@Timmy - i know... K shelters are the worst. I can't believe how close I came to not even be here...

@Layla - the smells would be great if the parents would open the door - I think they are afraid (and rightly so) that I may venture out for a peek

@orbit - if you are an old guy you got to be right... My brother was an old guy and he keeps telling me how he knows everything...

@alassandra - please tell me the training gets easier


@meowmeowmans - you are right. it is pretty awesome. I don't know how that brother of mine did the training from scratch

@Athena - thanks it is pretty cool

XOXO Lucy

Hi Lucy, how lovely to meet you. I'm sure your human is trying very hard and, to be fair as you say, she is good on the attentive game playing so maybe this is ok. Magic, Red and I look forward to hearing more from you.

Welcome to the Tabby Cat Club. You're a very cute girl. We hope you have lots of fun with us. Purrs, Abbi Leala

Hilary said...

@redsetter - you are right... I guess I should cut her some slack - I will but let's just keep it between us, OK?

@sparkyspitfire - hi! Thanks so much! I have been having a blast with my mystery mouse. Last night I even figured out how to capture the mouse. Good thing for me my dad reconnected it.... So the games continue!

@crazy cat lady - thanks! I am having fun already!

XOXO Lucy
