Tiger Lily

This is yet another new addition to the Faucett Family. Our neighbor's mommy cat had kittens and the neighbor brought over this runt of the litter. In my limited understanding of Thai I think he was just trying to pawn off the kitty to us. They know our girls love cats and that the kitten would be taken care of with us. Acacia came up with the name "Tiger Lily", I thought "Scrapper Lily" was more appropriate. I was vetoed. We washed her up and took her to the vet for de-worming and antibiotics for the discharge by her eyes.
The kitten really seems to have taken to Acacia and likewise.
Anna loves the kitty too, but we have to keep a close eye on her because she loves animals in that "Lenny" sort of way.

Acacia and Anna holding "Tiger Lily" and her brother "Love Bug" the neighbor's kitten. Their first meeting since we took "Tiger Lily". She has cleaned up nicely and has a baseball for a belly. She was nothing but skin and bones when we first got her. I think she would have died if we didn't take her in, she was in bad shape.

Now, we have a total of 3 cats. Milo, Cosmic Creepers and little Tiger Lily. The older cats just hiss and snarl at poor Tiger Lily and she is blissfully ignorant. She just wants to play with them and they bat at her and want nothing to do with her. The girls absolutely love the cats and they have made our transition more enjoyable.

Awww, Tiger Lily is too precious.
We can't save every orphan in the world, so thank you for taking in one more kitty, especially the runt. Tiger Lily looks amazingly like one of the new stray kittens in our neighborhood, bat ears and all!
