Quick Bio:

April 25th 2005


Looking out the window, watching the fish, playing with mousies and drowning them, batting toy balls, twist ties, and bottle caps.

Lily is afraid of plastic shopping bags ever since she caught her head in one and couldn't get it off. She does not like to be held.

Favorite Toy:
twist ties, toy mice, cat condo ( cubes), cat nip.

Favorite Nap Spot:
We put fleece on the couches for her. She also likes to sleep on the rug in the middle of our small and cluttered den. We trip over her if we are not paying attention.

Favorite Food:
Lily is limited in what she eats and is very finicky. She has a very sensitive stomach.

Lily can play tag, give hugs and kisses, drown toy mousies and collars, break things, clear off tables , dressers.


Arrival Story:
Lily came to us through a strawberry festival at a local farm and winery. Both of her parents were barn cats and I think she was only five weeks old. Her eyes were a beautiful blue. She was full of fleas and her ears were black with mites. She was so dirty we did not know what she would look like after a good bath. It turns out she was almost all white, with a smudgy spot on her head, which has since disappeared. Her hearing is fine, but she was diagnosed with a major problem with her colon. She has no motility.

I have had cats all my life, but Lily is the most unique. Her play is more like a puppy than a cat. When we first brought her home, she was so wild in her play hours , my husband became neurotic and still is. The family had to accommodate to her play area and times, to make sure she was always safe. She is like a hyperactive toddler, as my son was . My husband spends 24 hours a day worrying she is going to kill herself while she is doing laps around the house or is hiding where he can't find her. He flips out if he comes home and she isn't there. He always expects the worse because we know how wild and curious she is.. I have more faith in her, and my children are ever vigilant and smuggle her up to their rooms. We have a cockatiel and they tolerate each other well. Even though the cockatiel can get quite cranky. We would never let her out because we have coyotes in the area. Lily also has a life threatening condition. Her colon does not work so she depends on a medicine to void. We realize if she had fallen into the wrong hands or was not adopted, she would have died.
