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.
