A healing for Lucy
When we got our cat Lucy from the local animal shelter six years ago, she was sweet and affectionate. She even sat on my lap for the entire hour’s drive up to a family member’s house, where she was to be a companion pet. But we later learned that this family member mistreated Lucy. And when we got the cat back after the family member passed away, we found her to be terrified of other cats, shy, generally unresponsive, and unwilling to be picked up. This fear of other cats was a problem because we already had two well-adjusted house cats.
We felt we had no other choice but to find another home for Lucy, so we put an ad in the local paper. But when people started calling, we simply couldn’t bring ourselves to give her away. We set aside a room in the house just for her, which had a grate that let up heat from the fireplace for her to sleep on.
