About Lucy

Meowllo, everyone. My name is Lucy and unfortunately, I have a devastating backstory. I was dropped off at someone’s doorstep with my babies, Frankie and Grace, in poor health and significant pain. I was missing a large portion of my tail and bone was left protruding. Upon seeing a veterinarian, they made the decision to amputate my tail.

Regardless of what I have been through, I am not afraid of humans. Although I am still a bit skittish around unfamiliar faces, I have grown to become a playful, talkative little girl. I am super affectionate upon getting to know you, too. Soon enough, I will be asking you for pets by pawing or headbutting you. She even enjoys cuddling with her trusted humans.

While the exact circumstances of my backstory are still a mystery, I find comfort in knowing that I will have a furever home that will not inflict similar pain onto me. A home that will also respect my wishes of not being picked up, giving me time to properly adjust and working with me to help me continue to grow.

If you would like to be my furever companion while also experiencing the rewarding feeling of watching me come out of my shell, you can apply to adopt me below.

Here's what my foster pawrents have to say about me:

"Lucy has come a long way and we are so proud of her. She truly is such a sweet girl.”

– Doug and Heidi

Adoption Fee | $149.00

The feline adoption fees help cover the costs associated with rescuing, such as vetting, food, kitty litter and other expenses.

Prior to adoption, cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed and given flea treatment. In short, they receive any necessary treatment.

Why We Love Fostering

  • There is a special joy in seeing the transformation from fear to trust in a foster cat’s face and posture, the first time they relax and warm up to me. There is so much comedy in a litter of crazy kittens, rollicking and tumbling, learning how to be big cats. Each foster kitty has been cared for as if they were my own, and I enjoy the confidence in the feeling that they are ready for their forever home. That is the biggest difference between choosing to adopt from a small rescue rather than a shelter, and why I love volunteering. People often ask me how I can be so strong to let such sweet kitties go to adoption, but the feeling that I have space to help another is worth the emotional goodbye. Penny is the twenty-first cat I have helped, and I am not going to stop anytime soon! Fostering for Pets Alive is by far the most rewarding volunteering I have ever done.

Why We Love Fostering

  • From fluffy kitten cuddles, to endless purrs and kisses, fostering allows me to live a true “crazy cat lady’s” dream! Most importantly, it gives me the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of kittens/cats - some of which have come from very sad and difficult situations - and provide them with a safe and loving start before they go to their furever homes. While it is always challenging to say goodbye, I find comfort in knowing that there is a thorough application process to ensure the kittens/cats are adopted into the purr-fect home.
