Those who know Amy Clipston, know that she has a love for cats. It just so happens that Amy’s cat was willing to share with us what it’d like to be a cat in the Clipston household. Of course, I jumped at the chance. After all, who doesn’t want to see how a cat can edit books!?
Dear reader friends, please give a warm welcome to Lily Clipston! And guess what!? As Amy’s chief editor, she’s agreed to give away TWO copies of Amy’s new book, Amish Sweethearts!
A Day in My Life
By Lily Clipston, AKA Her Royal Highness Princess Lily Belle of Casa Clipston
My name is Lily Clipston. Some people think I enjoy a glamorous life, and they’re right. My family and I live in North Carolina near Charlotte. I have two human parents, Amy and Joe; one human nana; two human brothers, Zac and Matt; and two feline brothers, Rico and Jet. I like Rico, but I wish Jet would find a new home. So far, he hasn’t moved out. Jet mostly stays upstairs, which is where he belongs.
I spend every night in the playroom with Rico, where I usually sleep on a futon. If I get bored, I like to look out the window and annoy the silly dogs that live in the house behind us. I also enjoy screaming at the birds and telling them to get off my fence.
In the morning, Nana lets us out of the playroom. She thinks it’s funny to look at Rico and me through the window before she opens the door.
After Nana let’s us out, she feeds Rico in her bathroom, and she appropriately feeds me on the kitchen table. A while ago, Mom bought me a princess water bowl. When she gave it to me, I thought, “Well, it’s about time.”
After I eat, my day begins. Sometimes I enjoy a sunbeam on the floor or I sit in the window in the family room.
When I get bored, I move to the chair next to the window. I eventually fall asleep in the chair for a while.
After my nap, I like to play. I normally chase Rico around the house. We always wind up in Nana’s room.
After we play for a while, we sometimes hang out on Matt’s bed while he plays online videogames. We also like to nap together in the afternoons.
I always enjoy an afternoon bath on the back of the sofa.
If it’s laundry day, I occasionally will enjoy a snooze on the warm laundry. My mom’s white towels are the best since I can get the most hair on them.
Since my mom is an author, I like to sleep nearby while she works on weekends. I’m not sure what kind of books she writes (and I don’t really care), but I often hear her discussing Amish people. If she writes while sitting on the sofa, I like to sit at her feet.
If she writes while sitting at her desk, then I nap on the sofa behind her. I like to sleep on her Snuggie since it’s so comfortable. She complains that she would like to use it while she writes, but I’ve claimed it as mine. She really needs to just buy a new one for herself.
I like when Mom’s books arrive because I get to sit in the box.
Sometimes at night I watch chick-flicks with Mom and Nana. I act like I don’t care about the movies, but I secretly enjoy them. Mom picks some really cool movies.
Around nine o’clock, Mom and Nana put Rico and me in the playroom for bed. We always get a bowl of food at night, which is why we like to go to bed as early as possible. After I eat, I fall asleep on my favorite futon.
As you can see by my photos, I live in the lap of luxury. I wouldn’t trade my life for the world; however, I would trade Jet. If you’re in the market for a stupid fluffy tuxedo cat, feel free to email me. I’m happy to package him up in an empty book box and ship him to your doorstep.
Lily has agreed to give away 2 copies of Amish Sweethearts!
