Lucy was picked up by animal control and thought to be pregnant. A foster from STLPR offered to take her in. Soon they realized Lucy was not pregnant and was probably taken from her kittens. Lucy was considered semi-feral. She just needed a little time and love. She soon learned the blessings of living in a warm home: never needing to worry about food again, having a warm bed to sleep in and furry and human friends to play with. Her foster mom usually does kittens, so Lucy took on the role of being resident house mom for the orphaned foster kittens she kept bringing home. Lucy was in foster care for almost two years before she was finally adopted. Lucy was very nervous at adoption events and so kept getting overlooked. Finally, the right family came in and noticed her. She now has her own family with kids to spoil her rotten.
