Jeff and I were not looking for a cat.
We knew Jeff’s sister needed to find a home for her’s though.
I resisted, until a moment when she intently stared at me with those big beautiful eyes and I knew right then we would be taking her home. When I told Jeff, he glanced at me with a look that said “I agree, glad you finally came around”.
No regrets. She is a good kitty, we are getting acquainted more every day.
Lili. I’ve decided this stands for “little lioness”. Although, at 18 pounds she is not a little cat.
She’s 8 years old, mostly sedentary and sweet, a little shy. She has a judgement process for our guests…and you are either immediately accepted, or hidden from. Loves being brushed, and moves around on my lap so I don’t miss a spot.
She likes Jeff and I equally well, but whoever rubs her ears the hardest is her favorite. We enjoy hearing her slow, heavy steps move about the house.
The vet says she is a “Norwegian Forest Cat”. She does have an exotic look with her slightly curled ears and stub of a tail
Yes, it’s good to have a kitty around again. And Lili is happy here with us, too.
