If you have ever been to our office, you have seen the sign on our entry door that reads "Please keep the door closed. Lucy can’t survive in the wild outdoors." This sign is a conversation piece for everyone that comes into our office as their first question is - Who or What is Lucy?
Lucille (or Lucy) is our office cat with a very unique story. She came to us in September of 2015 from a water job we were working on in a rural area. The customer had pulled out and rolled up some carpet and left it on the front lawn for us to dispose of. We put the carpet along with other debris in our van and headed back to the shop. When we were unloading the carpet one tech mentioned he saw something run out of it but since no one was positive we left it at that. The following day another tech asked when we got a shop cat.... we didn't have one. As it turns out, Lucy had been hiding in the rolled up carpet when we brought it back! Little did we know at the time that this would be her forever home.
Now she wasn't the cutest when she arrived. She was small and the first thing we noticed was that she had no ears. Our office manager, Whitney, took her to the vet and got her checked out. Lucy was born without her full ears but could still hear. Other than that, she was great!
Nowadays Lucy runs our office. You can always find Lucy lurking around unless Whitney is out for the day, which is not likely. Lucy likes to do her daily filing, keep up with her paper work, and always makes sure to get her one on one time with each person in the office. She also has her favorite napping locations like on top of our 3/4 height walls, window sills, or right in front of a person trying to type.
