Our friend Connie left a comment, suggesting we post then and now photos of Lucy.
On the left is her the night after her spay, on my lap. The right is another of her on my lap that I took recently. Her notched ear is healed, and she's filled out nicely. Her fur is getting thicker and softer, and her raw paw pads are healed and soft.
This photo was the night after we had her vetted and brought her inside. It said to me "I am home."
I love this wide-eyed photo of her on the bed now.
Lucy has blossomed into a wonderful cat. She loves Ringo and they are always together, and she's become quite the lap cat with me. She's curious and always getting into something (she loves hair ties stolen from the bathroom), and it makes us laugh. I never imagined adding a fourth cat, but she's fit in wonderfully and is a joy.
