Facts about Lucy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 16FC27
  • Hair: Short
Lucy arrived at the shelter in early October with her sisters Violet and Sally. She is still a bit shy, but she does like to be held by her volunteer friends. She's just not sure yet if she wants us to put her down on the floor, preferring instead to be cuddled close and kissed gently. We have known many older kittens like Lucy, and we know that once you can hold them and bestow affection on them, adapting to a new home is merely a matter of time -- you just need to provide love and patience. Lucy will probably make a good transition in a home with another cat who needs a companion, or older children who understand that giving her a little time and love will make for a life of happiness with Lucy.

Lucy is about 7 months old, is box-trained, spayed, current on vaccinations, and tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia. Adoption fee is $50 (cash or check only, please). For more information on Lucy, or an adoption application, email, call the shelter at (401) 647-7200, or visit the shelter during regular hours: Tue, Wed, Fri 7 to 11 a.m., Thursday 6 to 9 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

About Scituate RI Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

THE SCITUATE ANIMAL SHELTER is a municipal facility under the supervision of Scituate Animal Control, a division of the Scituate, Rhode Island Police Department. We take in animals from Scituate and Foster and provide care until we can find good homes for them. We also socialize all cats and dogs who need such work in order to be ready for life in a home and with a family. The shelter staff and the volunteers will go to great lengths to find homes for all animals that we have at the shelter. Vet references are required for all potential adopters and decisions are made by our Animal Control Officers.
