We recently found out about Lillie needing a new home. At 11 yrs young, Lillie had been passed around to 3 different homes because of pooping outside the box. After her vet visit and labwork, it is believed she has ibd and has had it all her life but never treated. She is currently on medication to help reduce the inflammation in her bowels. However, she also has lymphoma. We are taking it one day at a time.
UPDATE 8/1/18: It is with great sadness that we report that Lillie passed over to the Rainbow Bridge today. Her little body could not sustain her any longer. She was loved by all and will be missed.
Your donations help to pay for the veterinary care for Lillie and our other special needs kitties. We couldn't do it without your generosity!

Do you have the heart to foster an aby or somali? We are always in need of aby/somali experienced people that can help us in caring for the cats we take in. The requirements are simple: a separate room to house the foster kitty, providing food, litter, water and alot of TLC. We provide lots of support and guidance.
If you are serious about fostering, please email us for more information.
Betsy stays in our hearts and our minds. She is the reason we work so hard and so quickly to rescue an aby or somali from a shelter. She was brought there at such a young age. We tried to help her get well, her will to live was there, but her body was not able to.
IN MEMORIUM 2012-2013
