Sweet Lucinda is a 3(ish) year old domestic long hair. This girl has had quite a rough life up until recently. She has had 2 homes that we know of, both times when the family moved they didn’t take her with and left her outside to fend for herself. Luckily some very kind neighbors fed her and gave her an outdoor shelter during the periods when she was without a family. In January Fuzzy Pawz received a phone call from the people who have been feeding Lucinda asking if we could help her. Lucinda was sneezing and appeared very ill, a rush trip to the vet proved that Lucinda had a very nasty upper respiratory infection. Lucinda’s once long and beautiful coat was so matted that she had to be shaved down to the skin; it was so bad that the entire coat came off in one big piece. After being shaved the vet found that Lucinda also had some cysts on her so those were removed as well.
Four weeks later Luncida is a very healthy, very happy (and we mean happy) girl! She is over her upper respiratory, her stitches are out and her coat is growing back! She is the picture of health and wellness.
What to say about Lucinda – she will crack you up; she is just so fun to watch. She is a big talker, when she first sees you she will want to tell you all about her day and will want to be scratched down her back and around her head. She is not a cat that wants you to hold her and carry her around; she is not a huge fan of lying on your lap. Lucinda would prefer to lay next to you for loves or she loves to wander around you while you pet her and she tells you what she has been up to (we call this drive by petting). She is very social and will come running when she sees you – but she is not needy, she does like her down time.
She was evaluated using the Meet Your Match program and she was assessed as “A Sidekick”. Meet Your Match describes her as: “Like all sidekicks, I’m just plain good company. I like attention, and I also like my solitude. I don’t go looking for trouble but I’m no scaredy-cat either. If you are looking for a steady companion to travel with you on the road of life, look no further.”
We have never had Lucinda around children but she is easy going and relaxed so we think she would be fine as long as they understand she doesn’t like to be carried around.
Lucinda is currently living with another cat and seems to do okay, the other cat is very dominant and Lucinda has learned to just leave her alone. Lucinda has never been around dogs to our knowledge but if they are cat friendly we think she might be okay with them.
We promise that her pretty coat will grown back – it is pretty shades of black, grey and white just like her face.
Lucinda is spayed, vaccinated and will be microchipped before adoption.
