I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since the Great Tiger Lily Relay. Now that was a fun post and well-worth another read.
I’d planned to make a neat video but real life, equipment, and Lily wouldn’t cooperate. So I have this hastily assembled collection of still photos. If it had an audio track, Lily would be saying, “Fine, I’ll play with your tissue paper and camera strap, but don’t think I’m posing for a picture.”
She is much cuter in real life and often strikes the most amazing poses, but never for a camera.
I have given up on house plants. A little nitrogen is good but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.
She eats nearly anything, including pickles and arugula. Her favorite green is baby kale. The only things she has flat-out refused are hot peppers and lemons.
The other kitties have warmed up to her. She and Sofia (my 20-pound middle child) are best friends. My eldest now tolerates her and only hisses once in a while. I love my little the cat family.
I really do think she is part feral because she can be a wild banshee. I also think she’s part opossum because she has caches all over the house. One collection I found consisted of a turkey thigh bone, a fully-intact chocolate covered strawberry, a few milk jug caps, and her feather wand. (I cannot figure out how she maneuvered the wand back there, but she did. Also, it’s worn down to one feather. She really LOVES that toy more than any other.)
