Hi, my name is Lucy and I'm a 1 yr. old female. When I was just a baby I got under the hood of someone's car to get warm and the people left their house with me still under the hood. After a very short ride (for me) I was thrown out from under the hood of the car and flew into a ditch. A very nice lady who was driving behind the car stopped and picked me up. She said I was crying so hard so she rushed me to a nearby vet and they did xrays and found nothing broken but there was nerve damage. The nice lady took me to her own vet and the same decision was made, nerve damage and no use of my right leg or paw. It was also decided not to amputate because I used that leg for balance. I was brought to FSFH rescue and another nice lady took me home with her to foster. On her way home she stopped to visit a friend and the friend fell in love with me and wanted to adopt me. Well that's exactly what happened and I had the most wonderful home. Sadly 3 weeks ago my wonderful mom passed away. My heart was broken!! Now I'm back at FSFH rescue and hoping someone else will fall in love with me again. I'm so sad and I need someone to love me again in my own home. Can you love a kitty with only 3 working legs?? Please won't you come and meet me??? Love Lucy Adoption fee: $ 95.00 All vet care is completed before adoption of a cat. This includes but not limited to FIV/LEUK test negative, spay,neuter, and annual vaccinations, flea treatment, and ear mite treatments. If interested in adopting please go to www.fewstepsfromhome.homestead.com and fill out an adoption application. If you would like to help you can sponsor a specific kitten to be spayed/neutered or sponsor an adoption fee for a specific cat. We also need donations for vet care and also cat food. Please help us care for these animals. The adoption fee we ask of adopters is not to pay for the cat. The cat itself is free! The adoption fee is used merely to reimburse our rescue for veterinary expenses that any responsible owner would spend anyway when bringing a new cat into their home. However if there are any funds left over from one cats adoption fee, it is used to help the next cat that comes along.
Sometimes FSFH's veterinarian expenses on one animal will be less than this fee, but another cat might require several hundred additional dollars worth of care. Without being able to recover at least the minimal veterinarian expenses on our cats, FSFH could not continue to rescue. FSFH's fee does not cover the general cost of keeping a cat in rescue (food, equipment, etc.). FSFH relies solely on donations to cover all other expenses related to caring for their rescued cats. Thank you for understanding.
