Lucy was an outdoor stray cat for most of her short life. Being an unaltered outdoor cat she had 4 litters. A neighborhood cat lover fed her and tried to make friends with her. And that she did! They bonded and then Lucy just cried and cried to come into the cat-lovers home. This wonderful lady took her in and got her spayed and up to date on all of her vaccinations. She introduced Lucy slowly and carefully into her home with the few resident cats. Unfortunately, after months of trying, the other cats ultimately did not want her to join their family. Very reluctantly the cat lover had to find another home for Lucy. She really socialized this little Lucy into a beautifully social and sweet girl. I wanted to foster Lucy!

So when I got her, I thought she would be hard to socialize to my home with all my resident and foster cats, but alas…no problem there! After her “get acquainted time in her private room, I let her out to mingle and play a few minutes at a time. What a joy to watch as one by one, each cat came up to her to touch noses. Sure, a few hisses at first but after a few days of slowly letting them get to know her, they all accepted her as a family member.

She will make the perfect pet! She is a quiet unobtrusive couch potato, totally litter trained, neat, tidy and friendly. A short brushing every once in a while is all she will need for grooming…oh and a nail clipping occasionally.

Her needs are simple…..she would love a quiet, preferably adult home, possibly a mellow cat or two, a sunny window, and she is in heaven. We don’t know about dogs and children. I think that children would be a little bored with her because she is not an active cat.

The adoption fee of $100.00 includes up to date on vaccinations, microchip, spay/neuter, Felk/FIV test neg and vet checks. She is ready to go to her forever home!

If you have it in your heart to give a forever home to a very deserving sweet girl, please fill out the application on line and send it in.
