Lucy’s comin’ to town

She’ll be here on Thursday.

Who’s that, you ask?

Oh. . . .her name is Lucy. . .our new Bengal cat.

Wait just a minute. . . Back up. . . Hold on. . .



Oh. . . You didn’t know we loved cats?

Guess what?


What is that you’re thinking? 

You thought this was SIMPLY Grand Central?

And adding an animal to the house isn’t SIMPLE????

I know. I KNOW!!

In fact, I could give you a list of 10 reasons why we should not be getting a cat.

BUT. . . . .

After 20 years of marriage I have now learned that The King, Mr. E.,

(or CAT-MAN-DO as I now call him)

looooooves cats. 

And although I am in pursuit of the SIMPLE life. . . .he IS NOT!


You’ve never heard of the Bengal?

Let me educate you on this breed:

The Bengal cat is a distinct, unique breed of spotted domestic cat derived from the ancestral crossing of a domestic cat such as an Abyssinian, American Shorthair, Burmese or Egyptian Mau with an Asian Leopard Cat. The name "Bengal" is derived from the Latin name of the Asian Leopard Cat, Feline Bengalensis. The domestic Bengal has inherited the exotic, stunningly wild spotted pattern from the Asian Leopard Cat, found in the wild in central Asia. This beautiful breed of cat is very loving, affectionate and friendly whilst retaining the uniqueness of it's wild ancestors.

Loving, affectionate and. . . WILD.

This WILL be interesting!

Would you like to see a picture?

Here she is:

Oh. . . .and one more thing.

Mr. Cat-man-do plans on BREEDING Lucy!

So . . .our home is turning into an official “cattery”!

AND. . .we need to come up with a cattery name.

Any suggestions?

That’s my story for today at SIMPLY Grand Central.

Your soon to be cat owner/lover?,
