Meet Lilo, my first kitty. We adopted her 11/27/10 from the shelter and she's 4 months old. She's a Tortoiseshell dilute, a beautiful light gray with some orange. We knew she was the right one after visiting other shelters and playing with all the kittens for a couple hours. Lilo was the most affectionate, playful but mellow, she reached out to us with her cute little paws, and started climbing on my shoulder! It was like she was saying, "Pick me, I'm the sweet one. Please take me with you!"
Our kitty is now making herself comfortable at home. The first night has been rough since Lilo got spayed that day, she had major diarrhea after surgery according to the vet, ear infection, and traveled in the car with us for an hour. I held the carrier as still as possible and kept her resting quietly when we got home. She was exhausted and had little appetite which I learned to be normal after being spayed.
We've been observing Lilo and she's eating more each day; Healthy grain free, natural high quality cat food and she's hydrated well with water. Oh and no more poopie problems!
Kissing my kitty cat. She loves the love and cuddling. Easy going Lilo doesn't mind being held and she purrs loud vibrating on our lap or in our arms as we pet her!
Her favorite spot is by the fireplace on a chair on top of a soft pink micro fleece throw blanket. Here she's on my hubby's lap, staying warm and resting soundly.

She's like a big furball who enjoys getting cozy and will stay while we watch TV. Lilo is adorable when she stretches, reaches out her paws to hug me, and softly bumps her head on my tummy or arms. She sometimes gives us tender love bites!
"I'm never leaving this cabin!" I gave her a magenta scarf and she loves it. Lilo already has Christmas presents from us including my in-laws! Loved + spoiled kitty=happy kitty.
"Look at me mommy, I'm cute!" Lilo wants tons of attention and she'll meow her way to get it. We're truly blessed to have her.
Most of you know about my post last week; A heartbreaking kitty story that brought out the cat person in me! What a happy ending and we're looking forward to wonderful memories with Lilo for years to come. More photos will be posted when she recovers from surgery. We're letting her take it easy.
Do you have pets? Aren't they great companions? :)
