My Birthday:


Estimated Available Date:


Hello, I’m Lucinda!

My favorite thing to do is relax and people watch.

What makes me special is my sweet personality.

I want my new owner to know I love love and cuddles on the couch.

When I am feeling playful I like to… chase the laser pointer because it always comes with a treat! When it is time to rest I like to sleep on a warm blanket near my fosters.

I am good with Cats and I have no experience around dogs, kids

By nature I am…Cuddly, Social, Loud, Affectionate, I like to be held.

Thank you so much for your interest in giving Lucinda a forever home! Before we take the next steps with your meet and greet we did want to take a moment to discuss Lucinda’s medical condition of FIV.

FIV stands for feline immunodeficiency virus. FIV typically causes a weakening of the cat’s immune system. It is the same class of virus as HIV (a lentivirus); however, only cats can get FIV. People and dogs cannot. FIV can only be transmitted via a deep bite wound and is not transmitted via normal contact. Cats with FIV can live normal and happy lives in households with other Non-FIV cats. Cats who are infected with FIV may not show symptoms until years after the initial infection occurred. Although the virus is slow-acting, a cat’s immune system is severely weakened once the disease takes hold. This makes the cat susceptible to various secondary infections.

 Infected cats who receive supportive medical care and are kept in a stress-free, indoor environment can live relatively comfortable lives for years before the disease reaches its chronic stages.

If you do choose to adopt Lucinda it will be important to have a working relationship with a vet (as a rescue, we use San Tan Animal Hospital) and if any signs of illness start to show it will be important to make sure that you call your vet and/or take Lucinda in to be seen. FIV kitties are amazing and typically live full lives. Lucinda is a very healthy kitty who will make an amazing pet for a special family.
