Ms. Lilly here needs a new forever home! Here are important details:
- Lilly is enjoying the single cat life; she may like a calm dog friend that wont bother her, but only if introduced slowly! Lilly is FIV positive.
- Lilly is the sweetest little thing you'll meet; she cuddles, kneads dough, purrs through anything, and talks to you with love 🥰
- Lilly can get around on her own and uses the litter box with no issues
- Lilly am spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped.
- I will offer free boarding for her anytime you leave town
- Lilly is being rehomed because I already have 3 cats and 4 dogs; she needs a quieter house to express her love!
Lilly was abandoned at a barn I frequent, we named her Lilly when we found her. The day after I was supposed to bring her in for vaccines and couldn’t cause I couldn’t find her, she was found laying in a horse stall, which was unlike her. It was quickly noticed that she was paralyzed in her back legs.
That day I brought her into the vet for x-rays. The vet said that she had a hernia and a fractured tail bone, which was why Lilly couldn’t walk or pee on her own. The next day she went into surgery. During surgery, the vet found 2 hernias. After the first surgery, the vet found a another hernia that showed up because the other two were closed and Lilly went right back into surgery.
When I could finally take her home, Lilly was out of it in pain and groggy from the drugs. It was almost pitiful. I had to express her bladder for over a week and she could only drag her lower half around as she tried to walk. She was too weak.
Amazingly, only 6 days after her surgery, she started to walk! She was also beginning to pee on her own, I was thrilled!
Now, she can exclusively use a litter box and she can walk, go up stairs, and jump on a bed. She is super cuddly, talkative, and so so sweet. She is still weak in the rear end and walks kinda funny, but she can get around. The vet said it could take another 5+ months before she has normal functionality in her legs again.
She can't wait to find her next home where she can just lay on your lap while you read or watch tv.
