About me

At this time, community members aren't able to visit the shelter to browse adoption kennels, and adoptions are limited to the virtual process. Lucy is a lovely, mature cat who will make a wonderful pet for someone who can offer her a stable, calm home. Life - for sweet Lucy - has had some recent hard turns: she lost her beloved human; then some nice relatives offered her a home but the dogs were a problem; and then she was surrendered to MCAS, which caused her a lot of anxiety. Now in a quiet, dogless foster home, Lucy is proving that she can roll with these changes. Day-by-day, she is becoming more playful and affectionate, though affection is usually on her own terms (she will approach and rub herself on legs and faces, but hand movements - especially sudden ones - have seemed scary to her). To transition to her new home, we may recommend some common anti-anxiety medicine, and her frightened reactions are probably too much for little kids. In any event, Lucy's a gem: curious, engaging and conversant in the very cutest of ways. We think she looks quite cute in her photo, but you just wait till you're face-to-face with her, with her gentle purrs and her soft fur against your cheek. If you have a loving home to offer sweet Lucy, please apply to adopt her today!
