Lily Update

February 2, 2012

Remember this face?

Lily is the kitten rescued by my sister and her husband in late November. She’d been shot in the leg and needed emergency surgery to save her life. With the help of many, many generous online friends, we were able to cover all of Lily’s expenses, including a later emergency to her remaining front leg also caused by the gunshot.

She’s got a pretty funky fur-cut from being shaved for her two surgeries (first, a leg amputation, later, spaying) and from the infection she had on her remaining front leg but she’s healing up nicely and is now over 7 pounds. She was just 4 pounds when she was first rescued.

She goes up and down the stairs with no problems at all, and climbs up and down furniture and is a fan of 2 a.m. snuggle time!

Yeah, I see you!

Talk to the paw!

Thank you all again for helping to save Lily, we could not have done it without you!

She’s come a long way from this little kitten with the shattered front leg:

Thank you again to everyone that helped this sweet cat. Lily’s got a new life, a new home and a second chance, all thanks to you!

      Me, too! I doubt she would have made it much longer if my sister and her hubby hadn’t taken her in.
