After our 15 year old cat Jessie died last July, we adopted Lily from the Sac SPCA. We wanted to adopt 2 cats, but did not find another cat that day. Lily is a tabby/tortoiseshell, and we were told she was a bit of a diva. Lily weighs about 7 pounds & is very active, so I tell her she is a cross between a cat, a rat, & a spider monkey. Since I shop at the Elk Grove Pet’Smart, I periodically check out the cats available for adoption. On one visit, Lapcats introduced Matt & me to LuLu, a 2 year old super mellow black & white cat. Matt & I took her home that day. Matt decided to name her Simba.
After a slow introduction, Lily accepted Simba. They get along extremely well, & they wrestle, which is a type of cat behavior I have never experienced before. They are becoming best buddies & Lily will go find Simba sleeping on a chair & curl up with her. Lily also likes to curl up on my lap & Simba is Matt’s lap cat. We have a screened in porch with a “cat” shelf about 8 feet off the ground so the cats can enjoy the outdoors without being outdoors. Both cats like to sit up on the shelf & watch the hummingbirds feeding. They also like watching the birds & a Cooper’s Hawk bathing in the birdbath. We are very happy with our new additions to our family, & are grateful that we found Simba.
Jan & Matt
