For a New Family to Know
Lucy is described as being friendly, affectionate and mellow. She likes to follow her owner around and sit on her lap at night.

She eats both wet and dry food, and is litter box trained using an uncovered box with clay litter. She uses a scratching post made from carpet and rope.
Lucy took a few minutes to come out of the carrier but was head butting counselor and purring. She enjoyed being pet but did try to flee when on the table. She was easily restrained and redirected.
