Sadly, Lucy—a/k/a the alarm cat—died during the night.
The photo above (taken a few months ago) captures one of our rituals. She would demand attention, so I would pick her up and put her on my lap. She would then settle on my lap for the next 10 minutes or so. Like her sister (Trixie), when she got comfortable, she would extend one leg, as seen here. Lucy was always kind of a skittish cat, so moments like this, when she felt comfortable and safe, always made me happy.
