January 22 is National Answer Your Cat's Questions Day! Back in 2009 I answered Tigger's questions.
This year I'm answering questions posed by our new kitten Lily.
She's only 8 weeks old and has only been living here for 18 hours, so I don't think she has too many questions yet.
LMSS: You are ADORABLE!!! Very affectionate with all of us. You are curious, a little bit of a Diva, pretty vocal.
LILY: Is it true that I'm adopted?
LMSS: Yes, you are. You are the first kitty we've ever adopted from a shelter and the Humane Society staff did a great job with you. They said you were very skittish when you arrived there last week. They spent a lot of time handling you and snuggling you and now you're very comfortable with people. You had to leave your former home because your owner's landlord said "no pets".
LILY: Why did you name me Lily?
LMSS: Sorority Girl named you. She LOVES Modern Family. The little girl in that show is adopted and her name is Lily. When we first met you we decided you looked like the name Lily would fit. Speaking of Sorority Girl, the two of you bonded instantly. I fell in love with you when I picked you up and cuddled you.
LILY: When will you guys let me sleep in a bed with a warm person?
LMSS: I think we need to wait until the plastic collar comes off. Also you aren't allowed to roam in that end of the apartment until you learn to stop jumping onto the bathroom counter. Embrace the soft coziness of the pillow on the living room floor.
LILY: Can I really have that stuffed Monkey Baby?
LMSS: Yes. She is soft and cuddly and you like to chew on her tail and legs. I saw you flip her halfway across the living room, so you obviously enjoy playing with her. I'll take your picture next time you get in the mood to wrestle with her.
LILY: Thanks for adopting me.
LMSS: You're welcome, sweetie. We already love you.
