Lizzie


Lizzie's full name is Elisabeth Bennet Cat.  She was named after the character in Pride and Prejudice, which the Mom was watching shortly before she was adopted in January of 1996.  Lizzie is still a bit shy around humans, but she dearly loves her Mom and sleeps with her every night.  She loves to go outside in warm weather, but prefers to stay in when there is snow on the ground.  There is catnip growing in the yard and Lizzie occasionally takes advantage of it.  She likes to watch the birds and other creatures, but doesn't hunt them.  She doesn't demand when she wants something, but acts very sad and mournful.  Her humans sometimes refer to her as the Drama Queen.

                                         Lizzie Bennet is strongheaded and willful
                                         And, like her namesake, somewhat prideful.
                                                  She gives soft cries
                                                  And mournful eyes
                                        To get what she wants, even her bowl full.

I think Lizzie's mom is very crazy for "Pride and Prejudice".
However, aren't we cats pride? Yes we are~!!! So~!!! That's a great name, we might really have some prejudice, too!

Lizzie looks very pretty. I'm glad I don't have a drama queen amongst my roommates. I don't think i could handle that.

Lizzie is another kitty we haven't quite met. She definately sounds like our kind of kitty, so we'll have to stop by and say hi!
