Lilly is 7 years old and came to the shelter because her military family was moving and could no longer keep her. Lilly is looking for someone that will appreciate her for the diva that she is. This beautiful girl likes affection on her own terms and enjoys being around people. She is currently in a free-roaming cat area of the shelter and has done okay with the other sassy cats in there.
