Lucy is a beautiful and petite black cat with piercing golden eyes. She is a beneficiary of our behavior modification program, which takes pets who come in with challenges and help them to overcome them to prepare them for a new home. Lucy came in to a Connecticut Animal Control facility along with about 30 other cats when a family realized their situation had gotten out of hand. When she arrived, Lucy showed us that she had been shaped by the overpopulation in her previous home; she was protective of the most precious items around her such as her food, water, and blanket. Here she has learned there will always be enough and now she is relaxed and comfortable in her environment. Like many cats that come from these kinds of situations, she is on the shyer side, but she certainly blossoms in the company of quiet cat people who will give her time to come to them. When she trusts, she comes over and rolls and purrs and shows her belly. Because of her anxiety about having enough, we think she do best in a home without other pets with whom she might have to share things. Due to her shyness, she’ll do better in a home with older children or adults only. We’re so thankful that we have such a great community of adopters that help us help pets like Lucy.
