Lucy

Lucy and her pawprints

This photo essay is in memory of Lucy, my cat, who I was sad to lose on Wed, 4 May, 2005 after 21 years of unconditional love. She was my favorite living being. I will miss you forever Lucy.

* For those of you who want to share their comments or memories of Lucy, I set up a guestbook in her name. Please don't hesitate to add to it.

Anne, Lucy, and myself… all babies

 

If Lucy was on a Belle and Sebastian album cover, this would be it.

 

in the kitchen

 

on my bed – this image inspired a self portrait I did later:

 

loving the flowers

 

goofing around in the fresh-cut grass

 

Attempts to hog Lucy proved futile

 

in the kitchen with Anne; probably awaiting a treat

 

in the leaves

 

maxin'

 

guarding the homestead

 

A hard day at the office; with a teenaged Kelly

 

The bent end of her poor broken tail hung off the porch step so naturally.

 

on my blanket

 

washing up at the top of the stairs, then hiding her face in coy embarrassment when she caught me photographing her

 

at her favorite spot in front of the stove; my dad took these

 

I can't believe how little Lucy is in this photo with Anne and me

 

in the kitchen

 

no caption I could write here would truely compete with Lucy's cuteness

 

with my feet; Summer 2004

 

This is the only photo at my bedside

 

dolled up

 

Waiting for me in the driveway to come home at night; I love how fuzzy her paws look here.

 

Kelly and Lucy; note Anne climbing aboard in the background

 

in the laundry room

 

Lucy slept with me almost every night, even if it was on the couch

 

This is the last photo taken of Lucy and me, and probably my favorite; 9 July, 2004

 

innocent until proven guilty

 

peeking down the stairway

 

in the southeast bedroom

 

wondering what I am doing

 

I love this photo of her wih Anne.

Lucy once told me that she loved life.
