Tillie Rose (Calico/Tortie)

Tillie Rose is a 7 month old Calico/Tortie. The little girl upstairs found her in our parking lot. Her mom said no, she couldn't have it so she brought it to me.


Tillie uses the bath tub for a play pen. It has all her favorites in there and she rolls around with them, tosses them and doesn't lose them under furniture.

Maybe she's part goat because she tries to eat everything that isn't her food, paper, cardboard, styrofoam packing stuff, aluminum foil. I'm always pulling something out of her mouth just like human toddlers. If she can get past me it goes in her mouth.

She has figured out how to use my printer. She can turn it on, increase the number of pages that print and when she bored she is delighted to print out paper that she can chase and eat if I don't catch her.

She's a sweet, happy, funny healthy little brat and a great addition to my life.

Wow! Now That is one cool looking cat! She is so wonderfully marked that she should be entered in a beauty contest!


I have a new "Torbie" female kitten (a Tortoise colored Tabby) & she is very beautiful to look at. But she's a stubborn little stinker too that wakes me up all night long hoping & begging for food & love!

You story was so funny & just shows how brilliant cats cat be! Be super careful & baby-proof your house & cupboards! We had to put child-locks on all our kitchen cabinets because the cats loved to open them & get get into anything inside. You have to watch a cat like this very carefully because our male cat, Smokey once ate something tiny, but it got caught between his small & large intestine & it cost us nearly a thousand dollars to have him operated on & have it removed. The vet said that they do surgeries like this all day long on dogs & cats that eat things they shouldn't. I didn't know it was so common!


The symptoms are that the cat stops eating eventually becomes lethargic. Any time a cat stops eating, you know something is wrong! Smokey almost died! Now we have a special place we keep Smokey at night while we sleep so he can't get into things!.

So before I rescued another kitten, I went around on my hands & knees & looked everywhere for any little tack, needle, bobby pin, string or plastic garbage tie & cleaned my home up like a toddler was moving in!

Both of our cats were also found living outside in a parking lots & my new female kitten was found soaking wet & freezing the week before Christmas! Sadly, people drop off unwanted kittens at apartment parking lots because they are to irresponsible to find them homes or take them to the humane society or to a no-kill shelter. It's fortunate for these special little creatures that there are animal lovers out there like you, me & all the wonderful people on ThriftyFun that give them good homes!
