Lucy arrived one day at the front door of Heart & Soul with her four sick babies. The babies were brought to the vet and taken care of by the staff until they were ready to be adopted. Some clients adopted the babies and the center kept Lucy as a pet that could help the children in their therapy and healing process. Since Lucy was a feral cat it took her awhile to warm up to people and being taken care of. She was the queen of the castle and was very kind to all the visitors at Heart&Soul except of course others animals.
