Explorer Spotlight: Richosr & Lucy

This Explorer Spotlight is full of firsts. Our first Explorer from Thailand, our first cat sanctuary owner, and our first Oriental Spotted Tabby! Isn’t she cute?
Lucy is a two-and-a-half-year-old Oriental Spotted Tabby (or at least that’s Richosr’s best guess, anyway). Her favorite thing to do is follow Richosr around. When he lies on the sofa watching TV, she’ll come and lay on his legs. When he works at the computer, she’ll sleep either on the sofa behind me or on his lap. When he showers, she’ll either come into the bathroom with him or will wait just outside the door. Lucy sure sounds like a loyal companion! Here’s what Friskies Explorer Richosr has to say about her:
How did you and Lucy first meet?
We moved to Thailand in December 2007, and unfortunately had to leave our Cat Pearl in England with my Mother. We had not long been in Thailand when a neighbour said that two kittens had been abandoned at the school were she worked and were only a few days old. My wife and I immediately decided to go and look for them. We did not have to search for long before Lucy (as she is now known) came up to us. However, we couldn’t find the second kitten.
Since Lucy came into our lives, we have rescued over 50 cats and kittens, 5 of which are now living at our home and 35 living at our Cat Sanctuary we decided to start on some land we have behind my Mother-in-Law's house. We call it the Hua Sai Cat Sanctuary and have built a large home for the cats and kittens. We now go through 56 Kg (nearly 125 lbs) of Friskies a month! They all love Friskies.
How did you come up with the name Lucy?
Lucy got her name from the song 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' which is one of my favourite songs. However when we emailed a picture of Lucy to my sister the file name was Lucy_May_2008.jpg, my sister said “We love the Picture of Lucy May,” so Lucy became Lucy-May.
If Lucy was on an island and could only have 3 things, what would they be?
Her green towel, Friskies Seafood Sensations, and ME!
What are 3 words that best describe Lucy?
A Big-eyed, Pink-Nosed, Angel. (Ok, I cheated with the hyphens!)
What is Lucy’s favorite Friskies flavor?
