Lucy, Pablo and Kalvin — July 20, 2022

Lucy, Pablo and Kalvin

~ Lucy, Pablo and Kalvin ~

Two years ago, Lucy welcomed Pablo and Kalvin into her life. Since then, they have all been through so much together but have also achieved so much together. 

At the beginning of 2020, Lucy met Kalvin, a 10-day-old goat kid. As soon as she held Kalvin, she cried at how small and soft he was. It was definitely love at first sight. Without a doubt in her mind, Lucy adopted him then and there. Then, not long after that, she wanted to adopt a friend for Kalvin, and so, Pablo was welcomed into their family. 

Within the last two years, Lucy has faced some challenges. From a break-up to moving to somewhere new for work. It was difficult for her to go through so much change. However, Pablo and Kalvin were a bit of light during those dark times. They were Lucy’s rock through everything and gave her a reason to get out of bed every day and never fail to bring a smile to her face. 

Something that Lucy, Pablo and Kalvin enjoy doing is simply spending time together. From eating ice lollies or watermelon to being active, like jumping on a trampoline or going for a walk. Being able to spend time with each other means a lot to them and being able to snuggle up together after a long day is just the best. 

To Lucy, Pablo and Kalvin are like her children. They mean the absolute world to her and they all share so much love and happiness. Pablo and Kalvin’s antics, such as sneaking sips from Lucy’s coffee when she’s not looking, never fail to brighten her day. 

Lucy and Xena — June 22, 2022

Lucy and Xena

~ Lucy and Xena ~

Five years ago, Lucy welcomed Xena into her life. Since then, they have become best friends and have impacted each other hugely. 

One of Lucy’s friends’ cats had recently had a litter of kittens. When she went to saw photos of them, she instantly fell in love with the only tortoiseshell kitten. Once the kitten was old enough, Lucy jumped at the chance to adopt her and name her Xena. 

For as long as she can remember, Lucy has been a cat lover and her family has always had cats. However, to Lucy, Xena is different, special. They have become best friends, and they know they’re there for each other, Lucy can talk about anything with her furry friend, sometimes she even gets a response in the form of a meow! When she’s feeling sad, Xena senses this and comes running from wherever she may have been sleeping to comfort her human. 

Having Xena has had a huge impact on Lucy. Her workplace is very high-pressure and can take a toll on her at the end of each day. However, at the end of each day, when she gets home, she’s always greeted by an excited kitty – this never fails to turn around a tough day. 

For a while now, Lucy has struggled with chronic migraines. These impact her daily life and mean she has to stay in bed for periods of time. When she experiences a migraine, Xena joins her in bed, curls up and doesn’t leave her side. She lets Lucy know that she’s there and is looking after her. 

Since adopting Xena, she and Lucy have created their own bedtime routine. Xena will go to bed and wait for Lucy. Once she’s in bed, Xena walks up to her, purring and, once she’s comfortable, lays down and places her paw on her human’s face. It’s time they get to enjoy together as it’s peaceful and shows the love they share. 

Lucy and Xena share a beautiful bond. Through thick and thin, they’ve been there for each other. Since they met, Lucy and Xena have brought one another so much comfort, joy and love.
