Hi everyone! A friend referred me to this site and I look forward to getting to know more cat lovers! I'm Kari from Washington. My DH and I are owned by two female black cats named Lucy and Lily. Lucy is 3 years old. We adopted her (as a 1-yr.-old) from a co-worker whose son was neglecting her. We have no kids, so, Lucy quickly became our "child". I volunteer at our Humane Society and this year we decided I needed to find Lucy a friend. One of my fellow volunteers showed me a poor little waif of a kitten that had just come into the shelter. The kitten was a feral kitten and so fearful that her eyes shook in her tiny little head. She had scars on her legs and ears and a broken toe that had healed wrong. I fell in love instantly and took her home. I named her Lily, because she is such a delicate little flower. She bonded with Lucy almost immediately but remained very fearful of my DH and I. At first she was so fearful that she couldn't even stay in the living room with us if the t.v. was playing. Now, it has been almost 7 months and the changes in our little Lily are phenomenal! She sleeps on our bed, chases Lucy through the house, LOVES to be held, plays with toys, demands to be petted, and even comes out of hiding to meet visitors. She will always be a small cat and she can't jump like most other cats, but, she is the sweetest little cat in the world and I'm SO glad I brought her home. My DH loves cats as much as I do, so, I'm lucky. There's my long-winded "tail" for you all!

Okay, I'm editing to add pictures. Hopefully these will turn out okay.
Here's Lucy:

This is Lily shortly after her spay a couple months ago:

Here is my favorite pic of the two of them:

Bless you for rescuing both of these beautiful girls.
Lily sounds like she has made some amazing progress and I'm sure she's very thankful for you adopting her.
Love the pictures of these two, especially the last one. Thank you for sharing them.
