16+ years

Yesterday was a sad day for our family. I know it sounds dramatic, and it pretty much was. We had to put out perfect little cat, Lilly, to sleep after 16+ wonderful years of her in our family! She was seriously the best cat ever. If you are not a cat person, you would have been if you met Lilly. She listened, and she loved and she ate human food. She was so snuggly and so adorable and we are so sad that she will not be meowing in our house anymore. She was getting very old and pretty sick. She had lost a few pounds and was always cold. She had such a great life and we loved her so so much. I don't think that we will ever get another cat because there can never be a cat that can compare to our Lillykins. We got her when we lived in San Diego and we were all in elementary school or younger. She was the best kitty and as she grew up with us, she continued to be the best cat ever!!! She would snuggle on your chest and rub her paw against your face. She would hiss at our dog because she ran the house not the dog. She would lick our creamsicles and eat our salty crackers. She would meow and meow and meow until we gave her deli turkey and then let her out into our garage so she could stay warm on the carpeted stairs. She was seriously the best cat ever, hands down! We will miss her so much. I will post some adorable photos of her as soon as I get a chance. We love our Lillykins and will miss her so much. She is happy now in kitty heaven.
