ASPCA Happy Tail: Lucy the Loquacious Kitty

In March 2013, Eriny Y. decided to drop by the ASPCA Adoption Center in Manhattan to peruse the adoptable animals. That’s when she met a special black-and-white kitty named Hamper, since renamed Lucy, and the two became inseparable. She shared the following story with us:

When I first saw Lucy at the Adoption Center, I asked if I could meet her because I thought her lazy eyes were adorable. The moment her cage opened, she started licking my fingers and purring. I knew I had to have her. I was hooked! She came home with me, and with a bit of time, she began to trust me.

Eventually, she started to curl up in bed with me and fall asleep as I scratched her head. She now insists on sleeping with me every night! She also loves her kitty treats and her catnip toys.

Whenever I leave the room, Lucy meows until I come back. At the end of the day, when I come home from work, she meows as though she is telling me about her day.

I love sharing my home with my adorable companion, and she has enriched my life in so many ways. I'm so thankful I decided to take that trip to the ASPCA on the off chance I might find a new friend.

Lucy has adjusted very well, and she makes me so happy to come home every day. Thank you so much, ASPCA!

I am so happy for you and Lucy! There is nothing greater than knowing she has a forever home.


Lucy is beautiful!! My black and white kitty passed away last year and he was the best!! Good luck to the both of you and thank you for saving Lucy's life!!


Oh, she is so adorable. So glad that she found a forever happy home and someone who treats her like the little princess she is!! She looks like a very spoiled kitty!! :)
I am very happy for you and your new fur baby.


She is a Beautiful Baby! I know that Lucy is glad you visited the ASPCA that "PERRRFECT DAY! We also enjoy the "Perrrfect" love of our cats. Thank You for sharing.


I have two rescues that hooked me immediately. One thinks she is a princess and the other is such a baby...he always wants to be held. I love rescued cats. They are such a blessing.


I love this story!! I have 4 kitties and they are such a joy to come home to. I work 3rd shift and I think of each of them through the night, their cute little ways and I miss them and can't wait to see them in the morning! My oldest, Louie, is such a mommy/daddy kitty. He is our oldest but the most spoiled, well, all 4 are spoiled rotten. Louie, however, is our little boy and he wants all the attention. I can be in the kitchen and he'll pick up one of his catnip toys in his mouth and carry it around and cry out for me until I come and hug and kiss him. He purrs and purrs. He loves to sleep with me. In the morning, I usually take a nap when I get home and he is ready to go to sleep with mommy. All 4 of my fur babies are so precious to me!!


Why is that money-making comment on here? I thought that this forum was only for posts about the animals.
