My beautiful, rescued cat finally feeling at home

Meant To Be Together Lucy and I met on a dark road during a rainy night last November. She was in the middle of the road so I stopped my car and as soon as I opened my car door she ran towards me, I picked her up and took her home. After a few weeks of looking for her owner with no response, I new she was supposed to be my cat and I named her Lucy. It was obvious Lucy was abused, she would cower to any attempt of affection. Now, 6 months from when Lucy and I found each other, this photograph is of her posing, comfortable in her home and environment, being the sweet, beautiful cat she is.
