The Good Luck Cat

Happy Friday everyone! Lucy is such a trooper that she is going to help me with a book review even though she still doesn’t feel well. The blood work was all good except her white blood cell count was elevated a little. She will still need the ultrasound to tell if it is inflammation or infection causing the rise. She ate better Wednesday than Thursday, but as long as she eats something I will be happy. Thank you all again for the purrs and prayers.

The Good Luck Cat: How a Cat Saved a Family, and a Family Saved a Cat by Lisa Warren. 003

Lucy and I loved this book, well I did and Lucy enjoyed cuddling with me while I was reading it. I love cats and memoirs so a memoir that includes a cat is an ideal combination for me. Lisa Warren writes about her life with her parents and the love they all had for their cat named Ping.

Like every family, they have some heartbreak and sweet Ping helps them through it. I won’t go into too many details as I like to keep reviews short because as my hubby says, I have the attention span of a fruit fly. I will tell you that when something happens to Ping they treat her as they would one another. I wish all people treated their cats as members of the family, I know many do, but I wish everyone did. I recommend this book to everyone that loves cats and treats them as family members. It is available on Amazon:

I actually read a copy from the library. 🙂 See you tomorrow for lots of hopping and Phoebe will be back on Sunday. Have a great Labor Day weekend!



    1. Mine didn’t either, but we can get them delivered from all over western and central mass, I would think all libraries in an area share.

  1. Happy dear Lucy is eating and we do hope nothing shows up on that ultrasound! Sounds like a delightful and heart-warming book – you do such great reviews……

    Hugs, Sammy and Mom Pam

    1. Thank you, I am glad you like my reviews even though I don’t put a lot of detail in. Lucy even ate a little crunchy food today. XO

    1. This book is fairly new, it came out within the last few months. I am not a big fan of fiction, these are my favorite kinds.

  2. Sending continued purrs and prayers for Lucy. It is so hard when we get sick and can’t tell you way is wrong. We love when cats are family members and treated that way. Mom will be checking to see if our library has the book. It sounds like a good read,
    Happy Friday to all the Pilch Kitties,
    Scout Charles

    1. Thank you for the purrs and prayers for Lucy. I hope your library has the book- mine didn’t, but I got it shipped in from another one. I would think most libraries do that. Sammy says he will see you at the birthday party Sunday-yahoo!

  3. lucy….ewe did a grate job on yur ree view….N we iz happee that ….for de most part…… yur testz ree sultz came bak aye oh kay 🙂

    heerz two a owens pupfish kinda week oh end ♥♥♥

    1. Lucy has had that lots of times for UTI’s, I am going to email your food service lady to ask her about this.

  4. Short book reviews are good. Knowing you like it is the important part. If you said you hated it, that would put the “kabosh” on it. I usually enter a cat nap reading long reviews and never make it to the end. I quit writing them myself–I put myself to sleep before I finish!

    Have a safe weekend

    Greg and his cats

    PS Now I owe you TWO! Like the genie said, “Use them wisely!”

  5. I’m sorry that Lucy’s blood work has shown some elevation, but on the other hand – it’s sometimes better to know what you’re searching for. Lucy is still in our thoughts – I hope you have a calm weekend (and a full tummy).

    1. Thank you for thinking of Lucy. I will be happy as long as it it something treatable.Hope you have a calm weekend too ( is that possible with 2 young kitties? )

  6. That sounds like the perfect book to read with a few cats cuddled up to you! We hope the vet figures out what is wrong and that you feel 100% better soon Lucy 🙂
