Lily Marlene was surrendered by a loving family who unfortunately had a family member develop a serious allergy to her.
Lily clearly loved her family very much, which made her transition difficult - she is definitely not a fan of change.
For the first week, Lily hissed and growled any time she saw a human, and was not quick to warm up to her foster mom.
But with lots of patience (and lots of treats), Lily finally came around, and on day 8, allowed he foster mom to give her a pet!
Lily Marlene definitely likes to do things on her own terms - when she wants to cuddle or be petted, she will definitely let you know.
She is very independent, and had no interest in her (many) toys, other than rolling a ball around a couple days ago.
While it took her quite some time to warm up, it felt extra rewarding and incredible when she was finally ready to trust and show her love in return - she is quite the little cuddle bug once she feels safe around you!
Her stunning soft coat and pretty green eyes will definitely have you in awe of her beauty as well.
Lily's transition to her forever home will definitely take patience and time, but her sweet demeanour that follows is certainly worth the wait!
She was described by her previous owners as "playful, confident, and curious", but in her 2 weeks in her foster home, she is only just starting to show those characteristics - we're sure there will be lots more to her spunky personality once she settles in her forever home!
Since posting Lily Marlene for adoption, she has shown more of her personality. Lily has started becoming more playful, often pouncing and running around between the 2 rooms she's most comfortable in in her foster home. Lily likes sitting below her foster mom's office chair and poking at her feet, asking to play or cuddle. Lily has also started being more vocal - she meows to greet her foster mom and often runs right to the bed to indicate she'd like to have pets or to be brushed right away. Lily loves being brushed, especially around her chin and face, and although very quietly, has begun to purr whenever she sits with me. Lily has also started eating on a schedule after finding a kibble she likes - this is a huge deal for her, as she was only slightly grazing her food bowl for the first few weeks. Lily loves to nap, especially while laying on her back with her belly in the air - it is very cute!! She also loves fuzzy blankets, and loves kneading and sniffing them as if she thinks it's her mama. She has become SUCH a sweet girl, and once you earn her trust, she will surely melt your heart.
Lily needs a quiet home - no other pets, no young kids.
She is startled by everything and every sound, so she wouldn't do well with any construction/renovations going on.
Lily doesn't need a ton of space - in her second week, she was allowed to roam the entire top floor of the foster home freely, but did not care to explore outside of "her" room and the room next to it.
Lily does have plenty of toys and a fairly large cat tree that MUST be rehomed with her though, so there has to be enough space for that
