Cats on Tuesday: I met Lucky, I loved Lucky but is now goodnite!!!

The recent death, disasters and killings
I have being in a sober mood since Haiti earthquake and the following up news in Haiti has done nothing to lift my spirit, moreso, the Iran plane that crash landed injuring 46 people and the Ethiopian Airline crash that killed 90 people have done more damage to my spirit than good. Too much bad news in one month. And the crisis in Jos, Nigeria again! OMG, I am tired of sad news!!!...
.............................................................................................................
On to lovely lucky:


Lucky was there on Christmas day. She made me miss my cats so much but her friendliness attitude made my christmas dinner with her family very superb. Lucky was a gracious, friendly and lovely cat. I played with her without her making me feel I was a stranger intruding into her life unlike her sister Fluffy who was ready to sratch the hell out of my hand for daring to touch her! But just 3 days ago, Lucky passed away from an illness suspected to be due largely to plant poisoning.
This is painful! Lucky you are missed!!! Goodnite dear girl!!!

p.s:
CATS ON TUESDAY is a group of cat lovers
who share pictures and/or stories about their cats once a week, hosted by Gattina.

Yes it seems everywhere we turn there is sad news.

Most all houseplants are poisonous to cats. It is too bad about Lucky.

Nice to "see" you again !
Sometimes it's better to put your head in your pillows and not watch the News ! but that's of course no solution either. How sad that the cat passed away so suddenly, plants sometimes can be very dangerous and we don't even know it.

Irishcoda said...

The news everywhere is so bleak and I feel better when I cat blog too. I also feel better when I hear of the good people do in the world. I hear you about missing your cats. I have six and when I am away miss them terribly!

It is sad when life ends, human or animal.
To keep pets (humans as well) safe, poisonous plants should not be kept indoors.

JEWELGIRLS KATZ said...

So sad to loose a dear cat who was
loved! Dear Lucky will be missed.
Very sad and so sudden.

Carla said...

Very sad, beautiful, and sad.

Myne Whitman said...

Pity about the cat. Too bad too about the disasters, did you hear of the assassinated politician?

NoLimit said...

May the Lord have mercy on us all...
How have you been? I know I owe a call!!!

Ginger said...

Oh, so sorry to hear of this. I keep all my plants outdoors because I don't know which are poisonous and which aren't, and since my babies climb, I can't even put them up high.

@ Dee: Thanks, I am a sucker for cats, I tell you. I visited your blog and saw your comprehensive view on Haiti relief effort and the Jos crisis.

@ Emilia: Thanks for stopping by. What happened to your 7 cats?

@ Cezar and Léia: Thanks C & L. The disasters and sad news are so disheartening! Yea Lucky was a cutie.

@ Booh – Bah: you are welcome; the plant she ate was in the garden, is that part of houseplant? One of my cats does eat grass in our compound.

@ Gattina: You are right about burying one’s head in a pillow sometimes, the fear of where next even worse!!!

@ Irishcoda: I love your philosophy about feeling better when cat blogging and when hearing about the good people do in the world. That is so positive!

@ The Chair Speaks: thanks for stopping by, the plant was not even in da house but outside.

@ Jewel Girls Katz: Thanks for this. I was told Lucky was responding to treatment and she later died on the operating table! It was sad really.

@ Carla: thanks a bunch.

@ Myne Whitman: yes, I heard about the politician and my reaction was “OMG, not again”!

@ No Limit: Thanks love, I am fine, just busy at school again. I do owe you a call too…

@ Ginger: Thanks a lot. She ate the plant outside in the garden, they suspected …

@ Splendid Little Stars: Thanks a lot.

My Passion, my focus, the change that I want to see in the world - is my propellent factor.
