Facts about Lucy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short

We can’t for one moment imagine what Lucy’s life was like – never being spayed and possibly having up to 2-3 litters a year. She is approx. 10 years old and somehow ended up at our local shelter. Upon assessing her, they noticed that this older cat was pregnant and expecting kittens very soon. They also noticed that she would need some dental work and that she was possibly diabetic due to her excessive drinking. Very often the older cats don’t stand a chance of being rescued from the shelter not when there are younger cats and kittens available.
We decided to rescue Lucy and do everything possible to see her through her delivery, have her dental work completed and test to make sure she was not diabetic. Things were certainly look up for Lucy.

All of Lucy’s kittens were adopted – Lucy’s dental work was done with flying colours and Lucy was not diabetic. From the blood work done before her surgery, it was discovered that this wonderful cat was tested positive for FIV. We were at first sad, but as we know, being tested positive for FIV is “not a death sentence” for any cat.

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) has been associated with cats for many years, although it was only labeled as such as recently as 1986. The virus depletes the number of white blood cells, which eventually makes the cat less able to fight off infection. However, because it is such a slow acting virus many FIV positive cats can enjoy a normal lifespan with no apparent health problems resulting from the virus. FIV is species specified. It can only be transmitted from cat to cat, not to humans or other animals.

Lucy’s foster mom cannot say enough about her. She is extremely friendly with people and spends her days perched on the cat tree gazing out the window. Lucy has so much love to give and we know there is someone special out there, that will see this and give Lucy her forever home – one she truly deserves. Her days of having kittens are over. All she needs now is someone that will love and care for her.

NOTE: The last picture is of Lucy being a wonderful mother to the last litter of kittens that she will ever have!

About Abandoned Cats Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Abandoned Cats Rescue is a completely independent Canadian Registered Charity supported solely by committed volunteers.....

We dedicate our time and efforts to the rescue of cats/kittens from local shelters that normally have only 72 hours to be claimed or rescued by a group such as ours. If not, they are sadly euthanized. We also focus our attention on those cats struggling to survive outdoors – the ones that have been abandoned and neglected. Our cats are housed in loving volunteer foster homes until a “forever” home is found.

All adoption fees and donations go completely to assisting the cats in our care. They are vet examined, vaccinated as age appropriate, spayed or neutered and treated for any medical needs that are necessary to ensure the health of the cat.

We never euthanize animals we can’t find homes for. We believe that there is the “perfect” home for ALL of our cats and they all deserve a chance to be loved forever!

Won’t you consider opening your heart and home to one of our many rescued cats/kittens? They are all waiting anxiously for a place to call home!
