Lucy, Adoptable Cat, Niagara

*** Please note that we are NOT accepting applications for the cats listed as Coming Soon. These cats have either yet to arrive or have only just recently arrived. Once their foster families get to know them a little better, a detailed bio outlining their personality and describing their ideal home will be posted and we will then begin accepting applications for them. ***

BIO:
Everyone, meet Lucy. This pretty girl has a devastating story under her belt and she is one of the strongest kitties we have ever taken in. She was dropped off at someone’s door step with her babies, Frankie and Grace, in poor health and (likely) significant pain. Lucy was missing a large portion of her tail and bone was left protruding. Upon seeing a veterinarian, they made the decision to amputate her tail.

 

Regardless of what she has been through, Lucy is not afraid of humans. Though she is still quite skittish around unfamiliar faces, she is super affectionate upon getting to know you. She loves being pet, playing with toys, and sitting by the window. She even enjoys cuddling with her trusted humans.

 

While the exact circumstances are still a mystery, we do know that she definitely deserves better, and this will involve finding a forever home that will respect Lucy’s wishes of not being picked up, giving her time to properly adjust and working with her to help her continue to grow.

 

If you would like to provide Lucy with a forever home and companion, while also experiencing the rewarding feeling of watching her come out of her shell, you can apply for her below.


Adoption Fee | $ 99

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. 

For more information about adoption fees, please review our Adoption FAQs & Fees page. alternatively, you can email us and communicate with our Adoption Coordinator: petsalivecats@gmail.com.

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.
