Facts about Lily

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10288
  • Hair: Short
Our rescue person found Lily, emaciated and pregnant, on the streets of Chicago in March 2014. She was wandering around aimlessly. When our rescue person opened the car door, Lily jumped right in and sat in the passenger seat as if to say, “okay, I am safe now, let’s go home.”
She was brought to me obviously malnourished. She settled right in and within a week gained 1.5 pounds! The following week she gave birth to 4 beautiful healthy kittens when she was a little over a year old, a baby herself.
I cannot tell you how sweet she is; you will have to see for yourself. She rubs against you until you pet her. She is naturally slim and sleek. Built like an athlete, she runs around the house like crazy and then settles down for a long nap in the sun. If an active playful cat is what you are looking for, look no further….Lily is the one for you!
An added plus, she has low maintenance grooming needs.
