Lucy vs the cats

This past weekend we had the pleasure of going to Post Falls, Idaho, to see Terry's "second" mom. This was a true adventure for Lucy considering that Patty and Mic have 2 dogs and 6 cats. To my knowledge Lucy has never really been exposed to cats before so we were kinda nervous on how she would react to them. When we showed up at their house late Friday night Lucy got to meet their 2 dogs, Sissy and Bebe. Sissy is part border collie and Bebe is a large black lab. They quickly tried putting Lucy in her place. Bebe quickly learned that she could intimidate Lucy. It got to the point that Lucy couldn't get around Bebe!


Bebe, she's very camera shy
 The next day Lucy got to meet the kitties. Squirt was the first one she met. He taught her that kitties paw at her! Squirt is known to drive the dogs nuts. Terry has told me how he likes to sit in front of the dogs water dish and make the dogs whine until someone picks him up and moves him.

She met Henry who also learned he could intimidate her. Lucy wanted to play with him. Henry would hiss and paw at her anytime she got near him. At one point she couldn't get to me because Bebe was sitting next to me and Henry was on my other side on top of the couch. Bebe wasn't doing anything but Henry was hissing.

This picture is of her looking out of the corner of her eye watching Henry.
  Downstairs where we stayed is the cats' area. She loved going down and try stiffing the cats and eating their wet food! Saturday night we introduced her to Pudgy. Pudgy was more willing to meet her. Terry held Pudgy as I held Lucy and she got to sniff him. The next morning I caught her wanting to play with Pudgy. I tried taking a video but it didn't record when she was really trying but I did get her trying sniff Pudgy. Well I was going to upload it but it wouldn't let me. But in the video Pudgy goes to raise his paw and Lucy takes off running! She learns quickly sometimes!

I was so proud of her! She was not a huge pain and did not try chasing the cats. We had a great time. They have an amazing house that overlooks Post Falls and the surrounding towns.
