Vale Lucy Nikiforos

Today Lucy is at rest, reunited with her beloved father. Lucy, after such a brave fight it is time to rest.

It seems such a short time since Lucy received that terrible news that we all fear.
Over the last eighteen months we have watched her body ravaged by the cancer and the drugs giving her precious time. Although the time was short, it was a marathon for Lucy who initially faced the prospect of only three months. Her spirit was strong and determined, she still had so much to do.

Lucy was strong, determined, stubborn and single minded. An inspiration and a warrior but above all our friend. Lucy will be remembered as a breeder of excellence who loved the thrill and anticipation of shows.
In the U.K. she was very involved with horse competitions, but she jokingly told me that they were too big for her back yard here. She had a wicked sense of humour. Her home has trophies and ribbons on every wall. She recently gathered together photos of her award winning cats. These photos depict the very best of her breeding.

Lucy has been generous as a breeder and acted as a mentor to many. I spent many late hours discussing the latest research and treatments for our cats and learnt so much from her. Although best known for her Russians, Lucy was also passionate about the Silver Abyssinians, a shared passion with her friend Jan Fuller.

Lucy had several goals she wanted to achieve. She attended two National Shows with her 'George' winning the ACF Lance Barnard award last year and all her cats placing well at this years ACF but this trip was almost too much for her weakened body. Two weeks ago her beloved cat 'Baby' was placed Reserve Adult at the Perth Royal Show. She bravely held Ashea from her wheelchair as the placings counted down. We all shed tears of joy for her as we realised this would be her last Royal and probably her last show.

Since June her decline has been rapid and sadly her final goal, to reach her 50th birthday on 27 November was not to be. We are privileged that Lucy shared her journey with us all so publicly. Her final weeks have been more private. I feel honoured that she shared her time with me. Her courage has been humbling and inspiring. The devotion of her husband, Nick, and their renewed bond was inspiring to witness.

Heaven will be well organised. Lucy has left instructions for all of her cats and already rehomed many. Kittens have paperwork and have been allocated to owners. She even organised me to place this notice so you would all hear of her passing at the same time.
To save Nick the heartbreak she has even organised what must follow, including gift bags!

Last Tuesday she invited us to attend a High Tea. We all realised that she was saying thank you as she prepared to go into palliative care. She shared with me her fears but above all how tired she was. Lucy was admitted to the hospital on Thursday and passed away at 6.15 this morning.

Rest now dear Lucy and be restored to the tall strong active woman we all loved.
