Help For Lily

Lily
This is Lily. She is a beautiful, affectionate young tabby.

My sister and her husband rescued her after she was found dumped at our parents’ house Thanksgiving weekend.

That’s right, I said DUMPED. Our parents’ live out in the country, and animals often mysteriously ‘appear’ at country homes when their owners no longer want them.

We won’t even go into how angry that level of irresponsibility and lack of compassion makes me.

Lily has an injury to her right foreleg and some seriously unfeeling, unkind person thought it would be better to dump her at a stranger’s house than see to her medical needs.

Fortunately for Lily, she could not have landed in more loving hands than those of my sister and her husband.

Lily is between 6 and 9 months old. She needs vaccinations and to be spayed, all on top of the medical treatment she’ll need for her leg, which is still to be determined. As of this moment, we have no idea what the total cost will be.

In order to give this sweet girl the life she deserves, my sister and her husband drove the 2 1/2 hour drive home with Lily nestled in a cardboard box. They said she slept peacefully almost the entire way.

In an effort to help my sister and her husband pay for Lily’s medical needs, I’d like to take up a collection to help get her on her way to a happier, healthier life. You are absolutely not obligated, but if you’d like to share a dew dollars, any amount will help.

We are individual people helping one cat that really needs it, but if you can find it in your heart to help us out, it would be greatly appreciated.

You can donate through Paypal by sending funds to ofenjen@gmail.com; Re: Lily’s Medical Expenses.  This is my personal, non-business email address. You have my word that every penny will go towards Lily’s care.

(I apologize for the lack of Paypal donation button. WordPress.com, where Sewhooked is hosted, does not support that feature.)

Who could say no to that face? She looks so pretty in her new purple collar!

Whiskers!

You can see here how her right paw is not all the way on the floor and is turned awkwardly.

Thanks for reading this personal and non-quilty post.
