meet lily!

as you guys know we have lots of dogs running around our office, but no cats! they are not allowed, because having cats here would also involve kitty litter.  but we had a special visitor today who was being photographed for something coming up – she belongs to our operations coordinator who sits right next to me so i took the chance to ask her some questions. say hello to lily!


Where are you from?

I was born in Villanova, Pennsylvania.  My dad came and adopted me as a present for my mom when she graduated from college.  Now i live in Philadelphia with my mom and dad!

What are your favorite hobbies?

I really like to chase feathers and play hide and seek, and I like to kick things that roll, but sometimes I get in big trouble when my mom is cooking eggs.  Eggs roll really well until they fall off of the counter. I also like to sleep – I take an afternoon siesta every day.  Also, I have a squirrel boyfriend who I like to look at.  I sit on the window sill and stare at him, and he stares back at me.  We have a forbidden romance.

What is your biggest fear?

I am afraid of dogs.  They are bigger than me.  I don’t even like when they bark on TV, it makes me nervous.

Favorite foods?

Tuna is my favorite, but I’ve been eating a lot of chicken flavored Iams lately.  It’s pretty delicious.  Oh! And I love to chew on plants, like my dad’s bonsai tree.

Favorite color?

I like orange because I am orange and orange is the best!

What’s your favorite place in the world?

I have a special pillow called the Princess Pillow that is my favorite – it’s one of my mom’s old throw pillows that is covered with a super soft blanket.  I like to sit there and get brushed every day.

How would you describe your personal style?

I am a natural beauty, so I don’t have to try to look fancy.  I know I’m gorgeous.  If I were a free people girl, I’d be a Ginger. If you got it, flaunt it.

Does it bother you that you’re not allowed to come to our office every day like the dogs?

A little bit, I don’t think it’s fair.  Dogs are much louder and smellier than I am.  I am so cute and little! But I also don’t really like to be in a car or my pink carrier case, so I am OK with staying home.

How was your experience working with free people today?

I had a good time.  At first I was nervous, but once I realized what I had to do, it was a pretty sweet deal. I got to wear a pretty necklace and sit on a pile of scarves and be fed treats.  It was like the best day ever.

  1. that is the sweetest cat! her little squishy face! i can’t have cats bc i’m so allergic, but i would like try to make an exception for this one! such a cute “interview”!

  2. My Mommy said I should introduce myself. I’m Sammy, a peach Persian and I think we oughta be pals. When I get a bit bigger I would love to take you out for sushi, but I am a lil too young yet. ‘meow, meow, hot stuff’ – Samuel Adams

  3. I LOVE her!!! So unusual and tiny. What breed is she? The interview was spot on for what a girl kitty would say. Hilarious!

  4. Lily is a “red” persian cat, she was the runt of her litter, so she’s very small, only 7 pounds under all of that fur!

    Samuel Adams, I will pass your date request on to her, though she might be a little old for you! Lily just turned 4 human years last month.

  5. As Lily’s “grandmother,” and I am delighted to hear that she was well behaved at her photo shoot. She is even prettier in person! Lily is very tiny, but you’d never know it under all of that hair. How nice that she had a chance to be a “Free Cat” today!
