Welcome home Lydia!

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Lydia has been with us for four days now and is adjusting pretty well.  She is the smallest cat I have ever had, and I think she must have been the runt of the litter.  

A week ago, we were notified that Lydia had a heart murmer, and the vet was concerned about putting her under for her spay.  She pulled through, and is happy in her new home.  Aside from the heart murmer, she has 1 cloudy eye, but in my opinion, it just gives her character.  It causes no pain, and she seems to see fine. They did warn me that sometimes cats with heart murmers will grow out of it, sometimes it can impact their longevity.  What ever happens, I am just happy she has a home.

She is not quite sure what to make of the dog.  She looks at him with great disdain, and he just wants her to chase him.  Overall, they are getting along quite well, and will even share the couch with one another.

Happy Family!
I had forgotten how low maintenance cats are.  She spends most of her day in the window, bird watching, in between naps in the closet and trips downstairs for food and water.  She's pretty sweet and snuggley.  Oliver gets a little jealous when I pick her up, put other than that, he doesn't pay her much attention.


  1. Awww what a charming looking cat. They always seem to have so much character and individual personality. Your Lydia sounds like a dear one too.

  2. Aww, she looks so sweet and little and reminds me so much of my sister's cat! I am really not a cat person, but tiny cats are just precious.

  3. yay for cats!!!! Lydia is a sweetheart :)

  4. Yay tabby cat! She sounds great :)
