Lexie has found a home and won't have to beg in the parking lot anymore.
Lexie has found a home and won't have to beg in the parking lot anymore.

Yesterday afternoon, Wildlife Freedom Foundation Executive Director Rossana Ceruzzi told The Daily, "Lexie is home."

The Wildlife Freedom Foundation had been caring for Lexie since she was left behind by a couple moving away from Roosevelt Island. Confused by her abandonment, Lexie wandered around The Octagon, appealing to residents to let her back into her building until WFF took up her cause.

That's been successful. As of Thursday, Lexie's been welcomed into a new home in The Octagon. Hopes are high that the arrangement will be lasting and she will never have to fend for herself outdoors again in the future.

Wildlife Freedom Foundation is a Roosevelt Island based organization devoted to protecting and conserving wildlife and caring for stray animal populations. Donations are welcome.
