In 2009, tiny little Lucy was rescued from underneath a dumpster, and she was raised in a loving foster home with her kitty sister. She was adopted shortly after her dramatic rescue, but unfortunately six years later, her human mom could no longer care for her, and she found herself back at Kitten Rescue looking for a new forever-home.
Lucy is a very funny little girl - she is still very playful and chipper like a kitten, but she would usually rather hang out in a kitty hammock or cushy bed than go running around the house. She is a kitty who knows what she wants, and that is to be petted! She will chirp at you and sweetly demand to be petted until you comply. She then rubs her little face all over your hand, making sure you're petting all the right spots. And if you stop petting her before she's done, she'll gently tap you on the hand to let you know you are not yet free to leave. She does sometimes use her paws to communicate - but never her claws! Though since she can be a little pushy and grabby, she would do best in a calm home with adults only. Ideally she would be an only-kitty, so she can properly be the center of attention, but she could probably coexist with another mellow dog or cat that mostly leaves her alone.
