Animal Profile


Hello, my name is Lucky. My animal id is #70087. I am a desexed male orange tabby cat at the . The shelter thinks I am about 4 years 3 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a stray on 7/23/2019.


Someone has already placed a deposit on me. I'm no longer available.

Lucky is at risk for medical reasons. Lucky has underlying medical conditions including Feline immune virus which is contagious to other animals, as well as severe gingivitis/stomatitis that will need further care and veterinary treatment. Behaviorally, Lucky would do well in most homes.

You may know me from such films as...

Let's get to know each other a bit more...

A volunteer writes: Lucky could be a character that stepped right out of Maurice Sendak's book "Where the Wild Things Are." His face is unique and his look always puzzled and concerned. But what a gentle and sweet chap he is, always seeking caresses and purring away his need for love. Treats are always most welcome and I make sure to have plenty when I visit him. Lucky is very much in need of TLC . Will you offer him your home and your heart for a beautiful life together? Lucky is waiting patiently for you at the Manhattan Care Center.

My medical notes are...
