Introducing Lucie Lou...

Despite a lot of should-we-shouldn't-we, we decided to get a new kitten. Actually, we didn't decide - rather, Cagatay's sister found her for us at a pet store where she was being fostered and if we hadn't taken her, she probably would have gone back on the street. So we took her - how can you resist a sob story like that? We don't really know much about her previous life except that she's about three months old and a woman found her all alone (and then gave her to the pet shop).

We decided to name her Lucie Lou as it was the only name that we could agree on (I had been pulling for Theodora, a solid cross-cultural name, but Cagatay wasn't into it). For the first few days, Lucie Lou was an absolute terror and I had to watch her constantly to keep her out of trouble. By Wednesday, I had reached the end of my rope and was fully ready to find her a new home...which she apparently sensed because she suddenly calmed down and turned into our now-adorable kitten.

Sadly, all of our other kittens died, even our beloved Mustafa when we were in America. The mother has also disappeared and the vet speculated that she was a lot sicker than she seemed, passing on whatever she had to them, destroying their immune systems, before succumbing herself. :( Pin It
