Tilly is a real jet setter, starting out as an American cat, born in Columbus, Ohio. She flew to London in 2005 and lived in Putney for two years before moving to the Oxfordshire countryside. She started life as an indoor cat but now only ventures outside when it is sunny and there are butterflies to chase! Being a Polydactyl cat (often called a mitten cat) she rather uniquely has six toes on her front paws and five on her back paws. Tilly tends to prefer the finer things in life and thinks of herself as a bit above her sister, Sooty, the country cat.
