WESTFIELD, NJ — She spent six days stuck in a tree on Rahway Avenue earlier this month.
It took her five days to recover at Union Animal Hospital.
And after a short stint living in the home of a benefactor in Westfield, Sky the cat has been moved to more permanent lodgings.
Irma Cardoso, who has been caring for the domestic white short hair on Wednesday transferred custody of the kitty to a Westfield native who is now living in Whitehouse Station, located in Hunterdon County. Sky, who gained her name following her aerial adventure in Westfield now has a new name.
“She did change Sky’s name to Lulu,” Cardoso said. “She said she’s very happy. She’s often at the window.”
Cardoso could not keep the kitty because she already has seven male cats at her home in Westfield, who would not get along well with the lady cat.
The new owner paid off Lulu’s hospital bill and even donated an additional $150 for Cardoso’s next rescue, she said.
“It’s a wonderful placement,” Cardoso said. “The universe knows who to send you and how to send it to you.”
Cardoso said she has already landed another feline that will need a home.
“Daisy came from the streets of Elizabeth the family moved and they dumped her,” said Cardoso, who is confident she will find a family for the young cat.
“It really takes a village to rescue animals,” she said.
