My name is Lucy and I'm a Bengal cat. I'm starting this blog to show you how you how important people are to a cat's health and well-being and how much it really means that you care.
My original owners bought me as an investment, had me front declawed but not spayed as they planned to use me as a breeding machine. For reasons I can't tell you I wanted to leave that house. I escaped a couple of times and made my final break back in late winter. I was hungry, thirsty and lonely. I ate garbage and food put out for squirrels and birds. I tried to catch birds to eat but was unable to because of no claws.
Then, I met my new mom and dad. They tried to catch me for weeks but I was just too scared to be caught. My previous owners showed little interest in getting me back saying they were too busy. But my new parents watched for me and I knew it. They have 2 big dogs, Sofy and Joey, and even though they didn't know me I still felt safe enough to keep going into their backyard. I'll tell you more about my new brothers and sisters later on.
On June 12th, 2010 I had my first litter of kittens. I went to the only place I felt safe. On June 13th, my new dad found me in their basement window well with my 5 new babies. I got to tell you I was terrified. I didn't know for sure how I would be treated. This is the day I was found.
I was sure that this was going to be just like my other house where I wasn't important enough to be cared about. But new mom and dad checked on me every hour. They brought me fresh food and water many times through the day and nite. Somebody really cared about me and my babies. It took me just a little while to feel more confident and I even let mom feed me.
So every day I learned to love my new parents although I was still a little bit shy. Little did I know that they were making plans to move me inside! Inside THEIR house! And they even gave up their bedroom for me and my babies. They bought me a huge cage,lined it with a soft mattress pad and a brand new bed. But I couldn't move in yet..they said I had to have blood tests first to make sure I was safe to be around my new indoor kitty siblings.
I have sooo much more to tell you but I'm getting tired. These 5 little ones exhaust me. I have been malnourished and am really small and skinny. Somehow I got a big scab on my nose but mom put medicine on it and it's almost all better. I'm eating 6 meals a day now! WooHoo! So I'm going to end this first entry of my blog. I hope you'll come back to see me and my babies and learn of all our adventures. We would like more friends. Thanks for caring enough to read and for making me feel more important in life.
