Letter from Home

Dear Mama,
I'm so happy you're coming home tomorrow night.  We haven't had any Fancy Feast or treats.  Papa put me in the snow as evidenced in this picture.  We've had record-breaking snow storms and cold weather while you're in 77-degree, sunny weather in California.  We all sleep in the big bed together at night.  Papa snores really loudly.  He says that I snore, but I don't believe him.

When you get home, I would like the following:
  1. Fancy Feast
  2. Temptations
  3. The electric blanket and flannel sheets
  4. A combing
  5. My crinkle ball and my sparkle ball

A Whole Bunch of Stuff

It's been another crazy week at Chez Lucy.  One day this week Mama was in her PJs all day (she works from home).  She didn't even have time to get dressed!  Needless to say I kept my distance.  (She tells all kinds of personal information about me, so it's my turn to dish about her. Hee hee.)

Simba has just been hanging out.

He loves to be rocked when he's on the chair. He'll meow very loudly at anyone who goes by to rock him and to not stop.  He's our resident fruit loop.

Now, on to the good stuff.  I wanted to let you know the winner of the book (see last post) plus a few other goodies we're going to throw in.  There were just five people who said they were interested in the book.  We used a very scientific process to pick the winner.  Mama asked Papa to pick a number between one and five.  The winner is Malyss of Chronicles from the Shore!  She lives in Nice, France and has two cute cats, Jim and Chestnut.  I really wanted everyone to win, but we only have one book, darn-it. 

I have even more news.  Mama is leaving us--all of us!  She's going to visit her Mama and Papa in California for a whole week!  She's leaving this Sunday.  Papa is staying home to take care of us.  I overheard that he won't be giving us Fancy Feast.  Sigh.  I already miss Mama.

We've been thinking about our dear friend, Annie, a lot.  She's at the hospital and her mom is missing her a lot. We really hope that she'll be able to come home very soon and not need surgery.  We adore Annie and want her home and healthy!  We're praying for you, Annie!

Bye for now!

A Good Book

Hello. We hope you all have had a good week.  It's been a little crazy here, but I manage.  I nap and eat and nap and then play a little in the evening.
Have you heard of this book?  It's called "Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World." It's about a kitten who was shoved into the after-hours book-return slot at the public library in Spencer, Iowa on a very cold winter night in 1988.  He was found the next morning by Myron, the author and library director.  Dewy won her heart and the hearts of the library staff by limping on frostbitten paws to give each of them a gesture of thanks and love.  The book tells of the impact the cat had on the library and its patrons, and on Myron herself. It's a heartwarming story, and we would like to send it to someone.  If you're interested, please let us know in your comment.  If there are multiple requests, we will randomly select one person.  Also, it's fine if you're outside of the US.

We hope you're having some fun this weekend!

Mama has been busier than her normal busyness at work this week.  Even though she works from home, sometimes she gets so engrossed in her work that she doesn't respond to our pleas for food.*  We then have to wait...
and wait...

Oh, I think I heard something...
May I have my dinner now?

No? Well, here's my bum of disrespect.
