#ShelterSunday: Finding Joy

Lucinda had been deserted by two families that both left her behind when they moved. Fortunately for her, some kind neighbors ensured she had outdoor shelter and food during the times she was without a family. But one day they had to call for help. Lucinda was gravely ill with a terrible upper respiratory infection. Her coat was so matted that she had to be shaved; beneath it lurked cysts that the vet removed as well. It took four weeks and special care from the people at Fuzzy Pawz Rescue, our #MonthlyMojo shelter for February, for Lucinda to recover.

Despite her rough life, Lucinda was a very happy girl. Three weeks after regaining her health, she charmed her new forever family into adopting her. One year later, they realized they had enjoyed her company so much, they wanted another cat - and of course they returned to adopt from the place that had brought them so much joy.
