Check out Lilly, Browley and JR:

Lilly (ID#: A1034759 – photo above) What sweeter flower is there than the Lilly?  Just like her flower counterpart, calling out for attention with their bright colors, this Lilly calls out for attention from the front of her cage with her bright personality.  A mature cat, she appreciates attention and will make it obvious through her head-butts and purring.  Meet Lilly, who’s about seven years old, at ACC’s Staten Island Care Center (3139 Veterans Road West).
