Meet Princess Tiger Lily

This beautiful Bengal Mix cat needs help. A very smart cat, she showed up on the doorstep of one of the biggest cat lovers I know on the cold rainy night last week and we decided we needed to help her any way we can.  Unfortunately neither one of us are in a position to add a third cat to our little feline/human ecosystems right now, so we are looking for some help.

We’re calling her Princess Tiger Lily and doing our best to help find her at least find a foster home,  preferably someone who is good with helping cats transition from street to indoors. She might need to be spayed. She’s healthy. We’ve run blood tests and are having her vaccinnated. We’re taking her back to the vet as soon as we can. She is affectionate and confident. We think she must have been someone’s cat once, as she is definitely not feral. At the very least she certainly needs some love and attention to remind her that it’s good to be an inside cat.

She has beautiful penetrating green eyes and a very loud scratchy meow that she seems to be using  A LOT right now, especially in the wee hours of the morning. We can’t tell for sure why. The vet originally said she was spayed but she is behaving as though she is in heat. This is the main reason we need some help. We can get her spayed if need be, but not while she is in heat obviously.

A wonderful friend took her in for a couple of days, she settled right in after a bit of exlporing the room and was totally fine being stared at and petted by six humans.

She is affectionate and loves being petted. Her fur is very soft and downy. She has a few mats and is underweight, and has obviously been on the streets for a bit. We can’t bear to put her back there.

I just love this cool ink blot pattern on the back of her head!

She gets this very zen expression when she is petted.

But she is also quite an explorer! Tried to climb into cupboards at the vet office.

Can you help us help this sweet lady?

I figure, there is only so much any cat and animal lover can do in any moment. There are only so many animals we can each take in and give them the quality food and health care they deserve. But, when one shows up on your doorstep, how do you turn it away?

You don’t. You can’t. You do your best and you cry for help when you need it. And that’s what we’re doing now. Thanks for reading.

Please forward to anyone you think might be able to help.

XOXOXOXO
