Welcome to the Kitty Star of the Week for November 14 - 20, 1999

Ricki is a 16 year-old Tortoiseshell. She is a bit unusual because she has been diabetic for nearly 10 years. She gets her insulin injection in the scruff of the neck and it doesn't seem to bother her at all. Other than needing extra medical care, she leads a normal indoor-cat life. Sitting in the sun in the window. Snoozing. Clawing the scratching post. Racing around for a few minutes with the cat-crazies. Having some catnip. Chasing a shoelace. Lap sitting.

Of all the things Ricki does, lap sitting is her favorite. She can sit in a lap for hours, either curled up in a little ball, or stretched out along the person's legs (Ricki is a very long cat). She gets upset if she doesn't get a lap to sit in when she wants one. She will begin meowing and sulking a bit if she doesn't get a lap! She also likes to sit on her human's lap while her human is working on the computer. And Ricki will try to rest her head on the keyboard or on the back of her human's hand (makes typing a little difficult!). In all, Ricki is a sweet and loving cat.
