Tiki was adopted September 2018

Tiki’s human sister writes “My parents adopted Tiki in the fall of 2018 and she fit in with the family right away. Since my father’s passing she has become my mother’s best friend … following her from room to room, sitting in her lap when it’s TV time, and licking my mother’s hair into odd coiffures when she is in bed. Tiki loves to play, using her enormous paws (8 toes on each of the front ones!) to bat at just about anything, and she is a great conversationalist, speaking in musical variations of “ppppprrrrrrrrrrrrpppp”. I love Tiki and my mother says she couldn’t live without her.”

Marty was adopted April 2016

Marty’s mom writes “It is hard to believe that Marty has been with us 5 years (as of March 2021). He is spoiled as he should be. He has got sweeter each year that we have had him. We are addressing a few health issues but he feels pretty good. He loves it now that he is ‘the only child.'”

Luna (FKA Victoria) was adopted May 2020

Luna’s mom writes “We’ve had Luna for almost a year, and she is the life and soul of our house, as well as the most reliable morning alarm! Who would’ve thought that the shy cat staying hidden in her little box was going to be the biggest cuddler?”

Pepper (FKA Petra) was adopted November 2019

Pepper’s mom writes “Pepper came home with me Nov 2019, and it feels like there’s never been a time without her! She’s made tons of human friends and especially loves when they feed her treats or scratch her belly. If she’s not out on a hike or evening sniff walk in the neighborhood, she’s enjoying a nap on the couch, thinking about her next meal, playing with (aka destroying) a squeaky toy, or pursuing the kitchen for fallen crumbs. 

Pepper’s been on two cross country road trips to meet her extended human family, so has now traveled in over 15 different states!

In the next few months Pepper looks forward to turning 8, exploring some new trails in the Whites, and ~maybe- getting more confident with swimming. 

A million thanks, Lucy Mac, for connecting us! Has truly been such a blessing this past year and a half.

Chloe (FKA Jillian) was adopted November 2019

Chloe’s mom writes “Chloe loves to sleep during the day, but wakes for regular meals (her stomach is like a clock!). Then she plays around all night – we find cat toys strewn around the floors in the morning. So far an indoor cat, but if we can get her comfortable with a harness, we may take her outside on a leash this summer.”

Inde was adopted September 2019

Inde’s mom writes “The last 7+ years with Inde have been absolutely phenomenal. She has been the BEST best friend, confidant, adventure buddy, and joy-bringer. Inde’s kisses are like none other, her “singing” is even better, and I will forever be grateful for, and to, her.”

Helena was adopted May 2019

Helena’s mom writes “Helena is blossoming in her new environment, and we only had to buy her 3 cat towers, several toys, a cat tunnel, and a box with newspaper in it :)!!!! She is working on getting her meow back; it is currently about 20 decibels. She is our little princess and we love her very much. She is a great cuddler (on her own terms) and greets us with a wagging tail when we’ve been gone too long. Thank you Lucy Mackenzie for taking such good care of her and introducing us!!!”

Abbey was adopted September 2019

Abbey’s mom writes “Abbey was a favorite while she was at Lucy Macs. She moved in with us and a few other Lucy Mac alums which was an easy transition for all of us. She quickly converted us into becoming her devoted servants. She spent time with us outside on the back porch during the spring, summer and fall. She would check out the chickens and ducks but wasn’t tempted to follow them. The birds were fascinated by Abbey though and would gang up and follow her around, wondering what her place in this farm was going to be. The birds always kept track of her when she roamed, look for the ducks, find the cat. She moved on to an even better existence and she is still sorely missed.”

Scooby was adopted September 2019

Scooby’s mom writes “Scooby really blew our minds! From the moment he realized I was taking him for a ride we’ve not looked back. Still excited at times, but has come a long way! We never had to potty train. From the first day Scooby just knew what to do. This was definitely not expected. Scooby still LOVES balls, but has yet again shown lots of improvement! You can actually hold a ball and he will sit and wait. All in all we are one big happy family full of love!”

Bella was adopted July 2018

Bella’s mom writes “Bella is loving life here in New London! She absolutely loves hiking, swimming, and romping around with her sister and cousins. Still very cautious of new things, but getting better every day! She absolutely loves making new friends now that she has figured out that people are COOL and give her pets when she doesn’t bark at them! Her favorite thing to do, besides eat, is zoom around her yard or on the frozen lake, especially when there’s fresh snow to shove her face into 🙂 She is also the best cuddle buddy when we are feeling down or sleepy – she loves to curl up under the covers with me and stick her snoot right in my face.”

Bows, now known as Bea, was adopted November 2016.

Jericho was adopted September 2020

Jericho’s human sister writes “The ‘Legendary Jericho’ has been a perfect fit for my father. The two have become fast besties. From playing “ping pong” in the bathtub to watching the birdies from the window Jericho keeps himself and his new best friend entertained. He’s had his nails trimmed twice and seems to love going to the vet. He’s a very good boy in his crate going to and from the vet and they say he is an excellent patient. I don’t know what the two of them would have done without each other this long winter. Two very happy boys.”

Longlong is my favorite! He decides that the secret place of our rendezvous is the toilet mat, so l have spent a lot of time sitting on the lid of the toilet and play with him on the mat. I’m very sure he loves me.”

January (FKA Tahiti) was adopted January 2020.

January’s mom writes “January has been the perfect addition to our family. In the winter she enjoys curling up next to the pellet stove and soaking up the warmth. It is only a matter of time until she is soaking up the sunshine on the porch again, or hunting the backyard. Her affection seems to grow each day, she has turned into a lap kitty (on her terms). Seeing how comfortable she has become in our home in one year excites us to see what the future holds.”

Stella was adopted November 2018

Stella’s mom writes “Stella moved in with me soon after I lost my husband. She has been very lively company. She makes sure I wake up for an early breakfast every morning, and never forgets to remind me about every meal (and a few snack times as well). She enjoys watching the birds, and she sleeps on my feet at night. She loves to play, and she enjoys some lap time too.”

Clove (left) and Sage (right) were adopted August 2020

Sage and Clove’s mom writes “Sage and Clove are very curious, playful and affectionate to their humans and each other. Their day is pretty busy with plenty of time for napping! They love to look at the squirrels and birds at the bird feeder, sit right in front of the computer as we are doing our daily email read, perch on the table to be eye level while we drink our coffee, pay bills or making stuff. They both have good appetites – Clove possibly is superior to Sage in this department. Sending all the folks at Lucy Mac a big hello and Thank you for our wonderful kittens!”

Soma (FKA Caper) was adopted March 2012.

Soma’s mom writes “I adopted Soma 10 years ago … the best 10 years of my life! She was active, funny, playful and kitten-like back then and she STILL IS, even though she must be 12 or 13 now. And she is also the consummate cuddle-bug. Soma is more than my best friend; because she spends much of her time either on my lap or riding around on my shoulders, she is also like another appendage. I can’t imagine life without her.  

Soma was in and out of Lucy Makenzie, mostly in, for about a year, and I am so grateful to Lucy Mac for being the kind of shelter that never looses faith that an animal is worthy and will eventually find the right home. Thank you, thank you!!”

Single. Day. She is unmistakable since she carries her frisbee to the field all by herself. We can’t imagine our life without her! Thank you for introducing us!”

Bowie was adopted September 2020

Bowie’s mom writes “Bowie has grown into a sweet and funny kitty who loves to find unusual places and positions to sleep in. He is extremely chatty and always has something to say. Don’t be late for meal time or play time ot you’re sure to get an earful! He’s not one for getting picked up, and likes his personal space but will seek out play time many times a day. His favorite place after a day of exploring and playing is on the house by the fire on a fuzzy warm blanket.”

Gracie was adopted October 2018


Gracie’s mom writes “Gracie May, aka Gracie, is my joy. I adopted her almost three years ago. She loves to cuddle, sometimes. She loves to play and make me laugh. She loves her tennis balls, she bunny kicks them. She sits, stays, comes when called, waits, up, down, comes when I whistle, and, oh, she fists pumps, too. When I get home she greets me by rolling all over the place. She thinks she’s a dog. She brings me so much joy, laughter, smiles, happiness and love. Thank you Lucy Mackenzie for letting me give her a final furever home.”
