Our Lucy-kins…

Post to Twitter .

If you know us well, you have heard us whine and complain about Lucy. She is a mischievious little cat that meows ALL the time. She is extremely needy and has to be laying on you every chance she has. She loves to knead you on your legs, arms, back; basically anywhere she can get to you.

She wanted to sleep with us every night. Milo would sleep very still at the foot of the bed. But not Lucy. She needed to be right up at our head and would randomly knead us in the middle of the night. We were not getting any sleep because of this so we decided to lock her out of the bedroom at night. Of course, this wasn’t an option in Lucy’s mind so she would stick her paw under the french doors to our bedroom and shake the door until you would hear “pop!” and the door would open. Of course, Lucy knew she was in trouble so she would run away and come back after we would fall asleep when it was “safe” that she wouldn’t get into trouble.

Most of the time Lucy and Milo got along great and would snuggle together and play with each other. Randomly though Lucy hated Milo and would hiss at him when he was even in the same room as her.

She shed all over, clawed at the rugs and meowed constantly. She really could be annoying and we complained about her all the time. Yet we couldn’t imagine our home without her and her annoying little habits. She was so loving; she loved to snuggle; she’d cuddle with anyone who would allow her to. She was so patient with Ryan when he would carry her all over the house (or actually drag her) as he would say “Momma. U-cee heavy. Ugh. U-cee heavy momma” She would just let him drag her around.

One of Ryan’s favorite things to do was put Lucy in either an umbrella stroller or a laundry basket and push her all over the house. I won’t go as far to say she loved it, but she definitely tolerated it and allowed him to do it. She wouldn’t jump out and instead would sit with her eyes closed (I think fearful he would run into the wall!!).

Lucy loved to sit in our front yard and watch everyone walking by. She would stay there for hours just checking out the neighbors and what they were doing. Rarely did she ever leave the yard; she is very jumpy and fearful of everything (even though she’s extremely friendly!).

Two nights ago she didn’t come in when it was time for bed. We didn’t think much of it since she would stay outside overnight once in awhile. In the past though she would come bolting into the house in the morning when we’d let Delta out. Well on Wednesday morning there was no Lucy bolting in. We searched the yard and still no Lucy. The panic started setting in and we started searching further and further away from the house, but still no Lucy. Several hours later we scoped the entire neighborhood and still no sign of Lucy.

We have posted information on the neighborhood website; we’ve filed a missing claim via HomeAway (she has a chip) and sent out a 25 mile radius search for her via HomeAway. We have sent out emails and talked to neighbors and nobody has seen any sign of her at all. It’s just so strange that she has not been spotted even once. The last she was seen was at 7pm on Tuesday night sitting in our driveway where she always is. Nothing since then.

Ryan asks for her, but is easily distracted at this point when we tell him to go find Milo instead. He doesn’t quite understand that she is gone even though he walked through the neighborhood last night with us shaking a can of treats calling out “Mi-yo”. Yes, I corrected him and told him that we are actually looking for Lucy so could he call out to “U-cee” instead. His response was very point blank and he said “No momma. I give Mi-yo treats. Mi-yo where ARE you?” Again, Lucy is such an easy-going cat that she came to us regardless what she was called (sometimes not so nice names too!). So Ryan continued to walk through the neighborhood calling “Mi-yo! Where ARE you?” Still no Lucy though.

We are hopeful she will return to us. Please say a prayer that she comes home safely and soon! We miss her and all of her crazy quirks and annoying habits. She truly is an awesome cat!!
