We are in love.....over the moon....
with our new addition to the family.
Lulu entered our life last Thursday,
when after a few month searching
we found our little princess.
Actually, we were looking for a little boy,
but Lulu stole our hearts at first sight.
We got her through PetSmart who sponsors with one of our
local Humane Societies.
The story of Lulu is the story of many abandoned animals.
In August the family who had her, and four other cats,
left their trailer and the cats behind.
The Humane Society rescued them, and some were
They make sure that they are healthy and fit to be
placed in good homes.
Lulu is a VERY shy little girl, about three years old.
She needed us.
We have had many cats and dogs throughout our married life,
the last one, our little boy Mousie,
who passed on twelve years ago.
We have been wanting another one, but the time had to be right.
It is right!
There are no small children running around,
we are mature adults, and no dogs here now.
As of yesterday, we opened her crate door so she can get the lay of the land....
that is the family room, and bathroom downstairs.
This is next to my studio where I had the crate first.
It is now in the family room.
The thing is, she is now hiding under an armoire all day.
I can close the doors of the family room,
which I did last night.
She ate her food, did her business, and from what I can see by
play mice toys, she has been busy last night playing.
I am worried that we cannot brush her long hair,
which she realty loves.
She even let us cut out a hair knot while crated.
Does anyone have a suggestion on how to coax her out from underneath the armoire?
She loves to be petted, and purrs up a storm.
Is it just a time issue, and to let her do her own thing?
She seems very comfortable here.
By the way, as recommended, she will be an inside cat.
Fine, our house is big, and I think she will enjoy
the enclosed porch in the summer.
If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
I really would appreciate input, since none of my pets
ever had an issue adjusting....but than, they were not discarded
to start with.
My girlfriend Debbie brought her a gift today.
It is mouse that you fill with catnip.
She loves it, touches it, and purrs like crazy,
but she is still under the armoire.
Remember, she is not a wild cat,
but a scared little abandoned one.
She is loved already, and will be our little princess
to be spoiled for the rest of her life.
So here are the first pictures of Lulu......
She is very small.
Can you understand that we are smitten?.....
And hubby loves to lie next to her crate and talk to her....
so do I......
I am even singing to her,ha ha, which she likes.
She has a habit of blinking her eyes....
and if you blink back, she does this repeatedly....
We are so happy that this little lady joined this family.
