Lacy has quite the playful personality! She loves to play with pretty much any toy, even a crumpled up ball of paper (those are super fun to bat around and also to chew on!). She is the type of cat who knows what she wants in life, and that's a whole box of toys and a nice chair to curl up on after she's tired herself out.
This spunky petite cat came to us from another rescue group after she was found as a stray. When Lacy first arrived, it took her a while to settle in (both into the shelter environment as well as a foster home). Now that she has become comfortable, she is very chatty when greeting staff and volunteers. She will roll onto her side and knead, and enjoys petting on her head, chin and cheeks. Lacy is not always a fan of being picked up or petted on her tail - she will tolerate being held by a person she is comfortable with, but only for a short time.
She is looking for a home with adults and older children who understand kitty body language. Lacy requests to be the only cat in her new home, and she may take a while to adjust to her new environment and people.
Lacy will attempt to get outdoors, including testing the veracity of screened windows. We always recommend that indoor / outdoor cats stay indoors for at least the first few weeks in a new home to acclimate with their new family; this will be especially important in Lacy's case. If her new home wants her to stay indoor only, they will need to be very vigilant about preventing escapes.
We have noticed that Lacy has lingering symptoms of an upper respiratory infection, which seems to be stress related. When in her foster home, these resolved but have reappeared now that she has returned to the shelter.
Lacy has been at the shelter since Dec 27, 2017.
