Lily – 3 Years Later

Lily - Three Years Later

This Lily, my sister and her hubby’s sweet kitty.

You may remember Lily from our big fundraiser from November 2011. She was rescued by Stephanie & Richard and she was obviously injured.

The vet discovered Lily had been shot and that she needed to have her leg amputated. It was an expensive procedure, but she needed it to save her life, and with the help of the online community, we raised enough money to cover the cost. Many, many people shared generously.

Lily - Three Years Later

She’s doing fantastically now and is Queen Kitty of the house with a brother kitty (Owen) and sister kitty (Miranda) in the house.

Thanks to Richard for the photos of Lily and to Michelle Thompson for reminding me that I hadn’t shared an update for a while!

Lily: 8 Months Later

Lily Lily After Surgery

Eight months ago, I told you about kitten named Lily. My sister and brother-in-law rescued her after she was found wounded in the country near our parents’ home.

When Lily was examined by a doctor, they realized she had been shot.

She needed emergency surgery to save her life. Unfortunately to do that, she also had to lose a leg.

And my sister and brother-in-law needed to pull together a lot of money really, really fast.

I asked the online community for help and boy, did you ever come through!

With the help of friends of Sewhooked and the Livejournal community, Love for Lily, we raised all the money we needed both for Lily’s surgery, and for her follow-up care.

We could not have done it without you!

The Thank You video made for all who helped save Lily, originally posted not long after her surgery.

This is Lily now.

She’s happy, healthy, and completely healed.

She runs up and down the stairs, loves her mom and dad and even has a new sister, Miranda!

Thank you again to everyone that helped save Lily. She’s a vibrant, funny and playful cat. She’s loved and spoiled rotten, and she was given that chance by all of you!

Lily Update

Lily
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!

Lily
Yeah, I see you!

Lily
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!

Christmas Eve at Lily’s House

Christmas 2011
Lily loves her mitten. She reached out to me and I held her paw for several minutes. It was so sweet!

We spent Christmas Eve this year at the home of my sister, Stephanie and her husband Ricahrd, which you may remember is also Lily’s new home. We had a lovely visit with family while Richard and I competed for who could take the most pictures of Lily!

Lily has flourished in her new home since her surgery.  She just recently graduated from her post-surgery confinement and now has the run of the house. She climbs the stairs, crawls into and under things, rolls around in her toys and is shameless about asking to be petted. She’s gained weight and looks absolutely wonderful. She remains an incredibly sweet and friendly kitten.

Thank you again for helping to make that happen! You can see a list of everyone that helped Lily here.

Please Spread The Word!

Lily Lily

We’ve topped $2000 in our Lily fund!

I’m waiting for a last couple of promised donations for the final total, but I think I can safely estimate $2,300 combined donations through PayPal, Cash and Check.

Yeah…wow!

If you still want to help out, please make a donation to your local Humane Society, animal shelter or cat rescue organization in Lily’s name. There are lots of cats out there that need help and haven’t found the loving home and the generous friends that Lily has.

The PayPal button for Lily has been been disabled, but because Lily’s story spread fast and wide, I’d like to ask for one more favor; if you reposted Lily’s story, please share this message so everyone will know we have made our goal and that Lily is going to be alright.

We cannot thank you all enough for your help in spreading Lily’s story. The outpouring has been absolutely amazing!

Love For Lily, A Thank You

Two weeks ago, I told you about Lily, the kitten my sister and her husband adopted after finding her abandoned near my parents’ home out in the country.

This is her story, and our thank you.

We now have all the money we need to pay for Lily’s medical expenses. We might even have a little left over to donate to our local Humane Society.

We quite literally can’t thank you enough.

Click here to learn more about Lily’s story.

Stocking for Lily
Here’s a little something I made for Lily. I was lucky enough to act as her post-surgery kitten sitter this week while my sister and brother-in-law were at work. She was a joy to be with every day and I will miss my mid-day kitten break!

Don’t miss my Blog Hop Party Giveaway! I have a free pattern and a fun giveaway, too!
