Too Grumpy For Love



‘Lilly the Grump’


No one wants her.

She doesn’t care.

Via Dublin SPCA:

Lovely Lilly is not always so lovely as she is a bit of a Grumpy Gru. She doesn’t like to be handled too much and will let you know if you persist. She has tummy issues so has to be on a special diet and doesn’t really like children or young cats so summing up she is what we call “hard to home”

However we think we may know what the problem is….

Lilly is a clever cat and as she has been here since January 31 and is getting frustrated. This could also be contributing to her tummy problems or even causing them.

We believe that when Lilly goes to a proper loving home she will be so much the better for it. Underneath she really is lovely and just deserves a chance.

If you would like to meet Lilly and learn more about her please call to our shelter [Mount Venus Road, Rathfarnham, Dublin 16 any day 11am to 4.30 pm.

    Too Grumpy to Love could describe most of us here
    To be fair like

    I own a grumpy b###ard cat and he’s actually kind of funny. Once you don’t expect cuddles and stuff a grumpy cat has its charms

      A bit like you?

      Bit grumpy but underneath all the angry fur you’re actually a marshmallow?

        It was more of wondering about telling people that you have a cat to give away that doesn’t like children but it’s only cuz she’s frustrated and will be grand if given a chance but sure what you said as well. Not my fault there are so many self absorbed bell-ends around that like to demean others to make themselves feel important, in my defence.

          You don’t like these newfangled joke things, you?

          In seriousness, some animals are not suited to children. You can make the same argument about dogs. Some dogs just don’t like children, or even people in general, for example.

          My own dog loves children, but is genuinely too scared to approach them. The cat is as haughty as they come, but also happens to be very affectionate and sweet, and will follow people she likes the look/smell of.

            “You don’t like these newfangled joke things, you?”

            Right back at you. I wasn’t making a serious comment. I just thought ‘this mightn’t be great around children…just give it a chance’ was worth noting. I wasn’t making some sort of judgement about the nature of cats. The cat is incidental.

          2. mildred st. meadowlark

            So, it wasn’t actually a joke you made then, was it?

            It’s ok, not to enjoy humour. Some people don’t like jokes. I don’t judge.

            (For the record, this is to be taken as gently teasing in tone, in case I’m not being clear.)

            Even when Moyest is trying to sound funny he just comes across as bitter and vindictive. Quite a skill.

      She’s a cat. Some animals don’t like little sticky fingers in their eyes or jam in their coat.

      Also, not enjoying the company of young kids doesn’t make you a bad person.

        grumpy cats can be fun. and really low-maintenance cos they just want to be left to do their thing, like a quiet housemate. affectionate cats require playtime and pets every single day. and then it’s extra gratifying when grumpy cats permit cuddles.
        unfortunately, i already have two cats and any more would mark me out as a certified cat lady.
