Lucas, the Pet of the Day

Name: Lucas
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Breed: Mixed
Home: Whitinsville, Massachusetts, USA
    Lucas is all black, with semi-long hair and beautiful green eyes. I got him as a companion for my first cat, after he knocked over the Christmas tree for fun. My boss had five other cats and they were beating him up. He was terrified and forced to live in her bathroom. She wanted to find another home for him because she was afraid he would die.

    When I saw him he looked like a stray - his coat was all oily and stringy and he was very thin. I brought him home and for a while all he did was hide under furniture. One time my husband had to rescue him from under a chair because he had gotten himself stuck between the crossbeams underneath. Ever since then Lucas has been his best buddy. Lucas weighs about 10 or 11 lbs. We also call him the "Cat Who Stomps."
