She is a delight and has already earned herself some interesting nick names, like lighting, and the phantom (those are the polite names). She is so quick, you don’t see her coming and then there she is right in front of you. Poor Red Cat, she is really giving him a time. Lucy is 8 months old and Red Cat is almost 18 years old. He’s slowing down quite a bit but Lucy wants nothing slow. Once she got used to the little cat door we have in the basement, she almost flies through it.
And wonder of wonders, Otto is smitten with the kitten. He is always picking her up and talking and playing with her. She is so soft, perfect for fiber people.
Right now she is occupied protecting the house from the bird invaders. She hasn’t caught one yet but it’s only a matter of time. Someone once asked how to keep their cat in their yard. Simple, get a bird feeder. It will keep them busy for hours. Of course, you have to fill the feeder, but that too can be a joyful chore. Lucy hasn’t found her way up to the workshop yet but I’m sure that will come with the warmer weather when Red Cat can give her a real tour of her territory. Did I mention she purrs? Loudly!
