Remembering Lilly Thundertail

We had to let her go after a too short life, but I wanted to remember all the good times we had

We brought Lilly home from PAWS in January of 2010.  She came with the name Lilly, but we added the Thundertail part after we discovered that one of her favorite things to do was stand on our headboard and whip the vertical blinds around with her tail.  Lilly was a sweet and funny cat.  She was always a little shy and more interested in being near her people than in contact with her people.  She liked to bump then circle away then come back to bump again.  She loved her chin scritches.  In the morning, she would wake us up by trying to lick our faces off to remind us that she was hungry!

 

Lilly had a lot of health issues (as well as an allergy to fish!) and spent most of her too short life on some kind of medication.  We decided early on that it would be easier to travel with her instead of making a friend come over and give meds each day.  It was a little challenging to train her to harness, but after that bump, she was a champion travel cat.  Lilly has camped, gone to the beach, traveled Vancouver Island, and visited family with us.

 

Lilly will always have a special place in our hearts
