Lily Update

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!

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.


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!

Lily After Surgery

Lily is home with my sister and her hubby, and will be pampered and loved while she heals and finds some normalcy in what’s been a crazy life for a little kitten!

For anyone that missed it, Lily was adopted by my sister and her husband after she was abandoned on our parent’s property. Her leg was injured, but what we didn’t know what she had been shot. I’ve been on a mission to help my sister and her husband pay for the surgery Lily needed to save her life. Lily’s leg had shrapnel in it and was infected. She she was running a fever and her leg was amputated today to save her life. She’s on antibiotics and painkillers and short a leg, but she’s already improving, is happy, eating and being a kitten again, despite her big surgery today!

Lily After Surgery

In donations alone, we have raised $1300 to help pay Lily’s expenses!

I can’t say thank you enough. Really. THANK YOU.

Check out all the fantastic auctions going on at Love For Lily with all proceeds going to help with Lily’s medical expenses!

sewhooked blog – a new home

Just a quick update to test all your RSS feeds out there!

The sewhooked craft blog has moved from http://www.sewhooked.org/blog to blog.sewhooked.org.

I do apologize for the confusion and having to shuffle the links about.  I’ve left the Blogspot format in favor of WordPress and I think you’ll find the new format much friendlier and easier to navigate.

New crafts coming your way asap!
