CHS Alum, Lilly

She has been with us since February 2014. She is 100% part of the family and we all adore her. In fact I wonder at times if any cat has ever been loved so much! We will be moving to a new home soon and she is looking forward to having way more room to run around in. Thank you again so much for completing our family.
