“I adopted Lucifee from Furry Friends in October 2021,” Madison says, “and although I haven’t technically changed her name, I honestly call her Lucy for short.
“Having grown up with cats, this isn’t my first experience living with them, but Lucy is the first one of my own. In looking for a companion pet, I knew that I wanted one who was friendly and snuggly. And when I read that Lucy really liked people, I felt that I should meet her. I visited her at the shelter and she was immediately very friendly and wanted pets. She also looked so cute and had such an adorable demeanor that I promptly adopted her.
“Several months after making herself happily at home in my home, I decided to move to another location, and Lucy’s had to re-adjust both to a new environment and to the presence of other cats. They’re more than welcoming and only want to be friends with her but she’s not yet that friendly towards them. Given her naturally outgoing personality, though, and a little more time, I’m sure she’ll feel the same way they do.
“Lucy is the best companion pet. I always look forward to spending time with her. We sit on the couch and she comes and cuddles up with me. When I’m working at home she comes and sits on a stool next to my desk and chills with me. I’m very happy to have her as a pet, and my family and friends love her too.
“Lucy likes to play with a toy on a string and also likes the laser pointer and her scratching stations. But most of all she likes exploring our new home. She was used to carpeting in our previous place and now, with hardwood floors, she slips and slides about in the cutest way. She also loves to flop, and since she’s heavy, she makes a ‘thudding’ sound. When she wants to rub against you, it’s more ‘ramming’ than rubbing, and when she tries to scratch herself, she often ends up scratching the air. In short, my Lucy is as funny as she is endearing.
“I’m very grateful to Furry Friends for taking Lucy in and for allowing me to adopt her. Thank you!”
