That's why we have a Tonkinese cat like Lucy Grace...she is spoiled, pampered, loved and treasured. When you choose a kitten you are really supposed to sit down with all of them and let them choose you. And they will. When we bought Lucy...we were in her family's living room with kittens everywhere...Lucy kept her eyes on me...circling, playing jumping...and finally resting with me...that was how I knew she was ours. She snuggled in my neck for the hour long car ride home and we've been tight ever since.
She loves Den, she melted for my mom, she will do anything to get my sister's attention and she seems to love babies and all of my girl friends. She likes what I like...she will eat yogurt and all fruits except citrus, she has dipped her paw into a cold cup of coffee...with cream...she carries around my jewelry...I have learned not to leave any sparkly things out...I once almost vacuumed up a diamond earring because she was playing with it. We wake up in the middle of the night with my hair ties strewn in our bed and once she spent a week carrying around a velvety sack of bracelets...did she think I needed them?
She has been loving, loud, loyal, demanding, inquisitive and mischievous from the moment we brought her home. When I open the door the first thing I see is Lucy Grace...racing down the hall to leap into my arms...a little bundle of purring love. It still tugs at my heart every time she does it.
Which brings me to my point...playing...it simply doesn't work to sort of just wave a toy around for Lucy Grace...she wants more. She wants a game plan, some sort of puzzle to solve and then action...lots and lots of action...and clever tricks from me...it's what she has grown used to!
And there are times when I feel as though I don't remotely meet her expectations!
This is why our house is filled with kitty toys!
to the brim...
with kitty paraphernalia!
