Miss Lucy Queen of the Castle
I adopted Lucy 8 years ago from our local Humane Society when she was about 2 y.o. She had been rescued from a snare trap. When I got her she was very shy and undernourished. In time she came out of her shell. She is now the queen of the castle. She seems to think that if she can lay on it, it must be hers! She is very sweet tempered, just not very social with others and no way is another animal welcome in her home. She loves to sit close to me, just not in my lap. I feel so blessed that she came into my life. She has a very strong '6th sense' and always knows when I'm not feeling well and won't leave my side.
She had obviously been an outdoor cat when we got her, but has been an indoor kittie ever since. Her idea of going outside now is getting to wander around the garage (of course the door is closed). I've just never been sure what breed(s) she is. The vet thinks that she might be Amer. SH and Persian. I would love it if someone could give me a better idea. She has a mixed thick coat of long/short hair and very short legs. She weighs 22 lbs., but only eats 2/3 c. of food each day.
Everyone makes fun of her weight, but she's actually very agile and can easily jump 3 feet high (she grabs every bug that flies by). She isn't real active and isn't a playful girl unless she wants to be. Because she's so chubby she has problems grooming her back so I have to keep her well combed or she mats up. After 8 yrs. I can't imagine my life without her!
