   Leave a treat for Lillian

Lilly, Lilly Belle

Kitty Complexion:
sleepyvery active
not curiousvery curious
not vocalvery vocal

Quick Bio:
-part feral-cat rescue


I love to sit on the lap of whoever is typing on the computer -- it is so much fun to watch the little dots on the screen when I hit a key to help out!

My brother, Dashiell (see his page on Catster!). He always chases me just because he is bigger than I am!

Favorite Toy:
Give me a little crumbled piece of paper (a dropped piece of American currency will work well too!), and I am enthralled!

Favorite Nap Spot:
In my heated bed!

Favorite Food:
Eukanuba -- I am not a big eater!

I do something our vet has said he has never seen another kitty do! I take those little pieces of paper (my favorite toys!), and drop them into the furnace cool-air return. It is SO MUCH fun. Sometimes I drop toys that Dashiell likes in too!


Arrival Story:
As we described on Dashiell's page, Dashy and Lilly were feral kittens whose mother sadly was hit by a car. A friend of our vet's was looking out for them and brought them, along with their brother, to our vet when they were barely a week old. Our vet called us to come see them, knowing that we wanted to adopt again having lost our 15-year old Ferdie to liver disease three months before. It was love at first sight! We had to wait for Lilly to reach the 1-pound mark before we could bring them home. Their brother went to another loving family.

Lilly was the runt of the litter. But she definitely makes up in intelligence what she doesn't have in size! While Dashiell is a big bruiser who isn't too sharp, Lilly is petite and SMART!!!

Oh my goodness! I don't know where to start! The last time I wrote in my diary I bemoaned my lost loves, but now ...
I'll start at the beginning. Dashy and I entered the Tree Climb at the Cat and Dog Plaza Olympics. Well, one morning we received a message from a handsome feline reminding us that we could enter the climb every day. Actually we knew that -- our strategy was to let other kitties get higher than us so we could claim the highest number to win. I wrote the lovely fellow back and thanked him for letting us know (that would have been so helpful if we hadn't understood the rules already). The dear wrote back and said he hoped I would win gold because gold would look so nice on my "pretty neck." What more can I say!?!? Phantom, our new friend, and I started up a correspondence ... we even batted a paper ball (one of my favorite toys too) back and forth cross country! And now, well, yes!!!!! We are a couple! I am so thrilled! Phantom is so gentlemanly and kind, articulate, intelligent, handsome and full of fun. He puts up with his new little sister sort of the way I put up with Dashy. And Mommy approves because he looks like Chauncey, her cat a long time ago. I think we were truly made for each other. It's another CATSTER love story!!!!!!! Stay tuned ....


Unlucky in Love

It's almost Valentine's Day which makes me think of my lost CATSTER loves. First I was in love with Big Al. He actually wanted to give me an engagement ring, but I demurred not wanting to "rush" our relationship. And then, out of nowhere and totally unexpectedly, my Big Al died! Oh dear! How we all cried for him. Months later I met gentle Tangee. He was so handsome and sweet. After months of him saying I was his "girl," he disappeared from CATSTER never to be heard from again! I was alone again. But then came Milagrito. What a sweet, smart, amazing kitty he was. And he lived in San Francisco, too! We had a wonderful trip to Paris together, and he sent me flowers and the sweetest messages. But then HE died. Oh my goodness. More tears. More heartbreak. And no one to share Valentine's Day with ... again ...

That rascal, Marina, tagged me in the latest CATSTER game. I have to think of the five most annoying things my humans do and list them here. Then I have to tag five of my friends, and they have to do the same thing!
Well, here's my list:
1. They let Dashy pick on me!
2. Mommy gets annoyed at me when all I try to do is give her "love bites" and knead her! Humans!!!
3. They let the Rug Rats try to comb me! Who needs a 2-year old with a cat comb?!?!
4. I'm with Dashy on this one -- Mommy and Daddy go away and let Ms. Looney Tunes stay here with us! Yes, she's the same Daffy Duck who put our litter box in the dishwasher!
5. They take me to Dr. Morris when Dashy's the one who is throwing up! Yes, those numbskulls really did that once! You'd think they could tell us apart by now!
I am tagging my friends Sunny (aka Sunshine), Biscuit, Kayleigh, Milagrito and Chai Latte.
