Likes: She's the master at sleeping, hiding, running from Zory, and sitting on her paper sack
Pet-Peeves: Being held, visitors, dogs, Zory, medicine and the vet. Lucy dislikes most everything except being left alone.
Favorite Toy: Stuffed duck that she got from her foster mom. Even Zory won't touch it!

Favorite Food: She's on a special diet because of recurrent UTIs. She will only eat cat food unllike her sister who will eat human food at any given chance
Skills: She can open cupboards and hide in the tiniest of places
Arrival Story: I got Lucy after losing a kitten to genetic illness. (Side note: stay away from pet stores)
She was at the pound and labeled "unadoptable". They said she could only live in a quiet home, no more than 2 people, no other animals, and NO KIDS.
She was feral and TERRIFIED of humans.
When I peered in her cage, she put her paw over her face and trembled.
"This cat needs me!" I thought. And 20 minutes later, she was mine.
Bio: When Lucy first came home, she ran behind the fridge and didn't emerge for 2 days. I ended up moving the fridge to get her.....
It took years for her to open up. She is still very timid and won't even let me touch her for very long. She likes to be near me, but plants herself about 1 inch from where I can pet her. Clearly she was abused in some way before I got her, I think by a guy as she becomes more frightened of men than women. However, she isn't too fond of any human(or cat or dog...)
She's 16 pounds and overweight. She's been on many a diet with little success. I've never had a fat cat before and am worried about her lifespan.
Hello to our Catster friends, sorry Zory and I haven't been around much. Mom finished her Masters Degree and was busy, busy, busy. She wouldn't let up online or anything.
She's also packing up the house so we can *sigh* move. She says this is the last time though. I hope so, moving is not an activity I enjoy. In fact I don't enjoy any activity.
Except my friends, and sending love and hugs their way!
