Favorite Toy:

Favorite Nap Spot:

Favorite Food:
treats - She can't figure out why we don't serve treats as a meal. She did figure out that if she knocks the treats off the shelve hard enough, they pop open.

She can open round-handled doors. Recently, I discovered she can sit, lie down, and sit up as I was training her sisters. She also sits up and then hits the treat out of my hand so I'll drop it.

Arrival Story:
Tilly managed to get away from a Bombay kitten farm and ran to a summer camp I was working at. Of all the people at the camp, she decided to pick out me as her new person. I took her to a nearby vet, who happened to be trying to shut down said kitten farm, and he took care of her shots and spaying for free since I said I would adopt her. My mom came up and took her home after that.

Tilly is incredibly intelligent, and even at 14 is very active, a testament to her Bombay blood. I used to get in trouble for leaving doors open until we realized it was her doing it. After my mom died, she decided to make my dad her 'person' and she has determined it's her job to keep him in line - telling him when to go to bed and when to get up, herding him around the house, and when he goes away on business trips she sits in his suitcase trying to take chunks out of his hands if he tries to pack more. When he is gone, she opens every cabinet in the house and often a door or two. While she is very affectionate around family members, she's very shy around strangers or even non-family members who visit often. She's almost always in motion, so I have trouble taking pics of her.
