show and tell: shocking UPDATE on Lily-the-cat

You may or may not remember the show & tell post I did in September about my niece’s cat, Lily.

It was all about how the cat and Miss Famous get along, well, famously.  Some of you had concerns that these two did not get the memo about how cats and dogs are REALLY supposed to behave with each other.  I guess they didn’t, as you can see here:

You’ll be happy to know that Lily has fattened up quite a bit after having to survive on scraps my niece nipped from the fridge (lunchmeat, anyone?) after being left behind when the “cat-lady” moved out of the neighborhood.This photo really doesn’t do it justice.  Lily has become one fat cat.  In fact, some of us were concerned that Lily might in fact be pregnant at one point.

Well, we needn’t have worried.  It turns out that Lily is a BOY cat according to the vet.  Well, to be more specific, Lily is a boy cat without the boy parts (he was neutered at some point).

But, because he has already gotten used to his name (according to my niece), he will be keeping the name “Lily,” so as not to confuse him, I guess.  We have taken to calling him Lily the Boy, but we have a hard time remembering which pronoun to use.  He get’s “she’d” a lot.  He doesn’t seem to mind.

Go read about any other shocking updates from the rest of the class over at Mel’s.

  2. Would you call Lily the Boy a “trans-gender-named” cat (a boy cat with a girl name)? LOL

  8. How funny. He’s a very pretty cat.

  9. Haha. I’ve heard this over and over lately- how the cat or dog turned out to be other than they thought.

    Cute kitty by the way. He can join the ranks of animals with confused names and he’ll be just fine. 🙂

  10. Such a beautiful cat !! How can someone abandon Lily-the-Boy. Look at him !

  12. So sweet I love animals.

  13. Lily the Boy, I love it! Looks like a super sweet kitty 🙂

  14. Good to see Lily looking so healthy. We used to live next door to a cat called Milly, and HE often seemed to smell of his owner’s perfume. Poor thing got picked on something chronic by the other local cats.

  15. lol! Good to see he’s/she is a happy fat cat now.

  16. How about Liliboy? Lil for short? Fun to see those two together.

  17. I love it when two different species can get along!
