Meet Lilly

Darling little Lilly, a friendly kitten
and the runt of her litter.

Isn't Lilly sweet?  She is a very lucky kitten in many ways.  She has a warm home and a loving family.  As a former feral, that's much more than what she was born with.  As lucky as she is, she has a major problem.

Recently the family dog hopped on the couch, unaware Lilly was sleeping there and landed on top of her.  She was in distress and couldn't put weight on one of her legs.  Her x-ray showed her femur was broken near her hip joint, and her leg needs to be amputated.  The amputation will not only give her a second chance at life, but will end the terrible pain she lives in.  Unfortunately, the young woman who took her in doesn't have the $600 for the operation.  The other option is euthanasia, something no one wants.

Life on pain pills is no way to live.

Lilly lives near The Girl, and The Girl asked me to ask people to open their hearts in this season of giving so Lilly can receive the care she needs so badly, and be given relieve from her suffering.  No amount is too small, and any amount is so greatly appreciated.  Even $5 or $10 is a wonderful gift!

Here are her links where you can read more about her and help support her operation:

We know things are tight for so many.  If you can't help financially, would you tweet and link to her pages to help get the word out?  We thank you.  And Lilly thanks you too.

She's beautiful. Paws crossed that enough donors can be found quickly so that she can have her surgery promptly and be on the mend.

Poor Lilly! Thank you for posting about her. :)

Just tweeted! We will try to rustle up some green papers to help, too.

Lily is gorgeous, we hopes she is able to get her leg fixed soon. Amputation seems a bit drastic for a broken leg, perhaps a second opinion would provide another option.
We will share her plight with our friends and we thinks Mo posted a link to organizations that help with vet care on the Cat Blogosphere awhile back.

Marg said...

Oh gosh, I hope they get enough money for that little Lily. I went to donate but it requires a credit card and I don't use credit cards.I sure will pass the word around. I will put it on Facebook.

Purring!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We will try and give something but it depends how if they are being nit picky about which card you can use.
Purrs Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Don't forget to go on the Cat Blogosphere site, and ask to have Lilly mentioned. Many people read that, and will learn about Lilly's plight.
