Liveaboard Lucy Lost

Sue and I are saddened by the loss of Lucy, our cruising cat companion for the last sixteen years.  Lucy was struggling with what we thought was motion awareness issues.  Once a very seaworthy kitty, she was throwing up each time we moved the boat.  Two days of illness while we are temporarily home in Ohio led to the diagnosis of cancer of the stomach and associated organs.  She was not able to hold down food, and finally lost interest in eating.  On Saturday, April 30th, our kindly veterinarian convinced us that  Lucy's time with us was over.  We will miss her, and the boat and house will seem empty without her.


  1. We are so sorry for your loss. How lucky Lucy was to be loved by you. May your hearts be filled with great memories. Much love to you...Claudia & Michael

  2. We are so sorry for your loss. I'm sure you will miss her terribly.

  3. I am so sorry! Lucy was a terrific companion on your ventures. She will missed by all that new her.

  4. OH NO! I am so sorry to hear about Lucy! That was one mighty lucky cat. She could not have been loved more by anyone! Hugs to both of you! Kathy and Dan
