Feline Friday #10

Here is Lily (who is more frequently known by her robotic name of Lilbot).
Lily was a rescue cat, I got her and her sister Betty as kittens that were abandoned by their mother and found on a farm. Lily was always the more timid of the two, and was chased and pounced on relentlessly by Betty. Because of this, Lily spent years of her life hiding in cupboards and being scared of absolutely everything. Lily would never have the courage to come and sit on my knee as Betty would straight away come and sit on top of her and boot her off. A couple of years ago Betty died suddenly, and Lily was not upset at all! In fact she became a whole new cat, and is happier now than ever before! She is a big softie, and loves getting her tummy rubbed. Lilbot spends most of the time sleeping on her blanket, crying for food or eating as much as possible.
