Goodbye Lucky



Lucky came to us in January of 1993 as a young adult cat, about 2 years old. He'd been dumped by his previous owner, and he was starving. I wanted a cat, so I fed him. I never saw a cat eat so much so fast - and after that he was ours. He started out as an outside cat, but after our dog nearly killed him (which is why he was missing an ear), we moved him inside. That turned out to be the best thing that could have happened, both to him and to us. We'll miss you Lucky!
