Oakland, NJ – Recently, an “extremely” fat cat was taken to a veterinarian by her owner who wanted the cat to be euthanized. But the cat, named Lucy, is still alive and she is in need of a home!
On Thursday, the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge shared Lucy’s photos, writing:
This chubby 10 year old girl was brought to a local animal hospital to be euthanized.
Lucy is extremely overweight & is on a strict weight management diet to help shed some of this extra weight.
According to the animal welfare agency, Lucy loves watching birds, being around people, and being petted on her head.
The organization said:
Lucy would be an amazing companion to a lowkey home who is able to dedicate the time & attention to her that she deserves! Because of her spunky personality, Lucy must be the only pet in the household & cannot be placed with small children.
It is not clear if Lucy’s former owner wanted her euthanized because of her weight, her age, or for some other reason. But she does need a new home, with someone who will love and care for her for the rest of her life.
You can find Lucy’s biography at this link to the shelter’s website. Please make all inquiries about this cat directly to the animal welfare agency. Animal Victory is NOT the point of contact and has no affiliation with the shelter.
