Tocktober 2015 with Lily Olivia


Mom has been following us around all month trying to photograph our tocks. We find that type of behavior to be rude and distasteful, and we have been totally uncooperative. Don’t get us wrong—we are not ashamed of our tocks. Flaunting them in public, however, is not our idea of a good time. We realized that to show them honors the memory of Derby, who created Tock-tober, so we knew one of us would have to back up to the camera eventually. As seven of us protested, Lily Olivia stepped up and took one for the team. She said that at her age, she can do whatever she wants and no one will care or criticize. So, here’s Lily in all her calico, tocktolicious glory!


Lily Olivia, calico, tocks, Tock-tober.


Personally we think her tocks are just okay. But we give her high marks for the varied tail positions and total disregard for propriety! Most of all, we each give her a high paw for saving our tocks by showing hers.


Purrs and paw-pats, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
