Silly Cat Lu-Lu, Queen of the Gutter.
by Bev. Ramsey
In The Gutter.
Introducing perhaps the silliest cat ever Lu –Lu, the cat that likes to lay in the gutter. Not on the window ledge or the garden wall as most cats would do, not even on the pavement, but it has to be right in the gutter.
If it is sunny weather she will be in the same spot in the gutter all day only coming in when evening falls.
She prefers a spot right outside the house, but if cars are parked there she will wander along the pavement to a free space. She will not walk too far though, she does tend to be lazy, if there is no free space near she will stretch out under a car.
Lu-Lu may be a silly cat but not silly enough not to get right out of the way if an engine starts up, or someone is backing into a space she is laying in.
Lu-Lu has done this since she was about seven months old, which was around the same time as the financial crisis started, and things are still bad now. We joke that Lu-Lu is predicting that we will end up in the gutter, at least we hope that it is only a joke!
