If Lacy had her druthers, she'd druther wrestle with her bruther Ludwig who'd druther she wasn't always pouncing on his tail. And if given the choice of running around freely or being held captive in a well meaning lap, the free-range option would probably come out on top.
But then six-week-old Lacy is still quite young and, while she does like head rubs and will purr and let you hold her if you give her one, she just needs a bit more time to discover the many additional perks of being a beloved family member.
Lacy's coat is black and white, assuming the very tippy tip of her tail qualifies as the white part. And as independent as she is, her ferocious meow and scrunched up hissy-face will definitely let you know when she's hungry or wants to play. (At this point "play" includes not only her toys, but her foster's shower curtain, floor mats and oh-so-shredable toilet paper.)
We predict a loving home with plenty of space in which to run, play and explore would be just the ticket for Lacy.
