Remember, after Nicky passed onto Cat Heaven in December, I decided that Jasmine cat was plenty? I quickly discovered with delight that taking care of one cat was much easier.
On and off through out this time, I would look at the free cats and dogs on CL. Just for fun.
Well.... this last listing was of a cat named Lilly. Didn't think much of it. But when an hour later, I couldn't get her out of my mind, I decided to find out more info on her.
But this time DH came home. After a flurry of activity, he sat down in front of the computer showing Lilly. I was finally able to ask him his opinion. He shrugged.
So I replied to the Listing. We discussed it a bit more. Pros and cons. I prayed about it. Received God's assurance. Then the foster mom called. Lilly met most of my criteria. I told her I'd call her back after discussing it with DH.
DH shrugged again but came up with a solution to a few hurdles.
I took that as a Yes! Called foster mom. Ended up she, her son and Lilly drove up that night arriving around 9:30 p.m.
3-yr old Lilly has lived a difficult life. She is a scardy-cat (with good reason) and is overweight (people before foster mom didn't feed her much), so now Lilly is making up for it. She has green eyes, a nice meow and is currently hiding under the bed. (I made sure there was room for her before she arrived, knowing this would happen.) She hasn't eaten yet. Would appreciate prayers for all of us.
Dilemma: DH wants to call her Jenny. Jenny fits her better, but she already knows her name is Lilly. Any suggestions?
