Lilly's Story

 
This has been a funny old week full of ups and downs and highs and lows and excitement and worries….and out of everything that’s been happening here, I’m going to share Lilly’s story with you all today. 

In 2014, just two months after homing her, we nearly lost Lilly to a very rare condition. Unlike most cats, she was not immune to Toxoplasmosis. It attacked her nervous system, her ability to move, virtually paralysing her and would have killed her. She was saved back then by the Animal Health Trust’s neurologists and expertise. And by the fact that we’d taken out hefty pet insurance.
 
Unfortunately, the condition does come back and she became unwell again last Monday…it’s the back legs that ‘go’ first…

 



Lilly wasn’t, however, overly pleased to be given an emergency appointment at the vets..


We started treatment, same as we’d done a couple of times since 2014, but this time it didn’t work. Lil’s got poorlier and another vet’s visit saw her referred once more to the AHT on Thursday… She wasn’t feeling too good… I wasn’t feeling too good… 


And my James was leaving on a school trip to Beijing on the Friday morning and there was packing to be done and an overly worried Mother here that was having a meltdown about that let alone anything else… I went to school down in Cornwall and our school trips were to Penzance maybe, or Plymouth…but Beijing?? Hmmm.
And why does everything always have to happen at once?
 
And then there was Harley…  So? Where's she gone then?? 


Is she back yet??


Why’d she go without me eh, why?….. 


The good news is that Lil’s is now stable and slightly improving. And Hissing at everybody. Which means she’s feeling better…and more her feisty little self….
 

So, Lillycat, these are for you..
Feel Good , Feel Happy


And come home soon my honey…
The same goes for my son…
xx
