Hi, my name is Tiger Lily. Some people just call me Lily. I am a 14-year-old, 14-pound sweetie who is looking for a forever home.
I first came to Golden Oldies in November 2017 when my elderly guardian could no longer care for me. I spent about 2 ½ months in a foster home before being adopted by the most wonderful, kind, gentle woman. I couldn’t have asked for a better home.
My human mom loved me so much and I loved her fiercely. We spent our evenings together sitting and reading. Well, while she read, I snoozed on a quilt on the footstool near her chair. I slept every night on top of the covers at the foot of the bed. I prefer not to be picked up and am not one of those snuggly lap cats, but my human mom understood this and didn’t try to force me to be someone I was not.
We had a great life together. Then she became ill. Golden Oldies placed me in a temporary foster home with the hopes I could go back to my mom after her cancer treatment. But the treatments are not going all that well. I am very sad. She is very sad. Because she loves me so much, she decided the best thing was to give me back to Golden Oldies. That’s true love. I miss her. And she misses me. But I know it’s for the best. Now I need a new forever mom or dad (or both). Someone who will love me just the way I am.
I will make a great companion cat! While I’m not a lap cat, I enjoy sitting next to my foster mom while she works on the computer or snuggling next to her on the couch.
One of my favorite things is to roll onto my back for tummy rubs. If you do that, I will reward you with loud purrs. Sometimes I even start purring when I see you, that’s how much I enjoy being around people.
I’m a curious cat, love investigating new things but I don’t knock things over. I don’t claw or climb furniture. I’m rarely scared or hide, even when meeting new people. I even enjoy getting gentle pets from kids!
While I spend much of my time napping, I enjoy playing with shoelaces, laser pointers and feathery cat toys. At night, I’d be happy sleeping with you on your bed, but I’m also just as content in my cat bed outside your room.
I’m pleasantly plump and enjoy my wet food and broths. I like a quiet home and would prefer to be the only animal in your life if possible.
I am spayed, up to date on rabies and FVRCP vaccines, microchipped, FIV/FELV negative and have had a complete blood panel done.
