Lounge Cat Can Get Comfy Anywhere, Anytime

Lilo came to us as a foster from the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter with her mama and four litter-mates. She's exceedingly comfortable in her own skin and spends most of her time belly-up - a vulnerable position for most cats. She lounges on carpet, tile, furniture, windowsills, office equipment, beds, people in beds. She coughs up hairballs and gnaws iPod chargers. She plays with her noisiest toys under our bed at night. Our play sessions often end with Band-Aids and when she's really wound up she spits at us. In spite of it all (or because of it all) we love her. She's unlike any cat we've ever known, poor posture and all. | <p> Sheila Borgman </p>
