They're keeping her!!!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
OMG, you guys, I'm so excited and happy! My parents have decided to keep Lucy, the 3-year-old neglected kitty they've been fostering!!! Some of you already know this is the outcome I've been hoping for, but didn't want to push my folks into it. They've been without a pet since their elderly cat and dog died years ago. My brothers and I have been trying to convince them they needed another pet, but they wouldn't budge.

They've been fostering Lucy temporarily until a friend of mine could take her to foster, but have fallen in love with her. She's such a sweet, gentle girl. I'm so happy for them and Lucy!

SO happy to hear that! How wonderful. It will be so much better for Lucy to not have to get use to another home. I guess the extra vibes helped.

Thanks, guys! Honestly, I'm still in shock. I couldn't be happier, though.

I'm going over tomorrow afternoon to show them how to clip Lucy's claws (they never did this with their cat, Missy). Then we're going to the pet store to stock on kitty supplies. Also, my dad thinks Lucy needs more toys, even though I brought her a bunch already. Looks like Lucy is going to be a spoiled little girl!

As she should be (so says my spoiled little Lucy)

Oh, I am so glad Lucy has found a loving, forever home with your folks, and conCATulations to them for having opened their hearts to her! They are sure to feel they're the lucky ones for bringing unconditional love, loyalty, beauty, and friendship into their lives once again. We'd love to see pictures whenever/if ever they're available, and wish the very best to Lucy and your folks.

Oh that is so sweet. Like you said, you just knew your dad was attached to Lucy.

Nope. There was nothing devious involved. Dad just finally admitted that he wanted to keep her, which is what mom and I had been waiting for.


I can't wait to go toy shopping with him this afternoon. I suspect Lucy will end up with every kitty toy, bed, scratching post, etc... in the store.

Will try to get some new pics of Lucy and post them soon.
