I think it’s time I introduced you to the Neurotic Cat of my blog title. Her name is Lucy, but she also goes by the names of “Luce” or “Kitty”. Sometimes when the humans want to call her, they make a funny “tchk tchk tchk” sound. Then when she doesn’t come, they whistle for her. Amazing. What’s even more amazing is that she then actually comes. And I usually come too, because that is how they call me. Very confusing.
Neurotic Cat is a black and white cat. More white than black. In fact if you ask me, she is actually a white cat who had a pot of black paint splashed on her from above. The black then flowed down her sides, with some splashes on her face and paws.
So why do I call her Neurotic Cat. Because she is a neurotic cat. She’ll sleep through a thunderstorm or if a big truck goes by, but if any living creature makes any sudden moves, she flees. Her stress hormones must be through the roof – no wonder she has IBD (you can read more about that here)! According to my humans she was always like this. In fact she was worse. As a kitten she didn’t like to be picked up, and was always outside during the day. Being anti-social. She has improved since I moved in, so I think I must be a calming influence.
Our first year together was a little rocky (I’ll tell you more about that some other time). Now we are best mates.
