Lily is a beautiful and sweet kitty with a rather sad story. She showed up in a feral colony with her tiny kittens and Dewey trapped her and brought her and her little ones to safety. She loved her little kittens, but after the appropriate time, her cute little kittens were adopted out to loving families. We also tried to get Lily adopted but because she shows very poorly at adoption events, she never got her turn to go to a new home. She is a very sweet kitty who is playful and who likes people. She cannot stand other cats and just the sight of our other cats gets her very upset. Lily can be picked up (and she purrs loudly) and can be petted for a while, but then she grabs your arm. She has learned not to grab it very hard, and she seems to really want to be around people, so we’re not sure if this is a reaction to the other cats, an abandonment issue, or she just wants to play (she loves to play). But because we have other kitties, she is confined to a bedroom by herself. And she’s been alone for quite a while. I love going in her room to see her when I get home. She seems very happy to see me, runs up to me to be petted, and purrs loudly when I pick her up and pet her. I rub her face on my face – she likes that a lot! And it’s so funny to hear her playing in her room with her toys – she sounds like she’s having a blast! She LOVES the laser pointer.
If no one will give this lovely kitty a chance, she will have to go to barn home. As her foster mom, I really don’t think that’s the right alternative for this nice, yet slightly quirky girl. She is in no way feral, she’s sweet and we feel she may have been someone’s pet (believe me, many kitties get tossed out the door when their young, un-spayed cat gets pregnant). When I say Lily is beautiful, this is an understatement – she is stunning, with medium to long, soft fur that does not seem to mat. She is also very low maintenance – she plays on her own, has great litter box habits, and seems to like most wet and dry food.
We would love for you to give her a chance, at least foster her for a bit and see what you think. It will be trial and error because we don’t know how she’ll act in another environment, and my feeling is she’ll need a little bit of time to get adjusted to her new environment. Also, we might consider an indoor/outdoor situation if your house is located in a safe place. Please, please, please at least foster her and see if she might be the kitty for you!
