*** SAFE 10/24/16 *** LUCY IS A STRING ADDICT!! (And also likes plastic bottles!)….”If you show her string she gets really excited and starts to jump around swiping at it. She also likes to play with empty plastic bottles. She likes to roll them around on the floor.”…..LUCY and her housemate ASLAN (not listed) were dumped for the catch-all Personal Problems excuse…A bit of an independent lady, LUCY will warm up with a little space and patience. She was not comfortable with the small children that visited her former home. LUCY is 9 years old and already SPAYED!! She deserves a new and loving home that will cherish and not abandon her!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Lucy lived in a home with 2 adults, 1 other cat and no children. She was socialized and relaxed with the other cat and would normally enjoy sitting in the kitchen or sleeping on the couch. She has only been around children when they come to visit and would hide under the bed because she does not like small children to handle her. She tolerates attention from adults but will jump away when they pick her up for too long. Lucy shares a covered litter box with one other cat and used clumped litter. Reaction to assessor: Lucy was curled up and lying down on her blanket at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Lucy makes eye contact with the assessor but doesn’t seem interested and doesn’t come forward. Reaction to cage door opening: Lucy remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Lucy lip licks and turns her head away when the assessor extends his hand out. Her body is tense and she watches all movements but slowly warms up the more you interact with her. After a couple soft passes she gently nudges the assessor and gives light head butts for attention. She slowly inches forward with her body low, purrs softly and seems to appreciate attention. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Lucy tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
