Lily One Year Later


Today marks exactly one year since the day Lily almost died and had to be rushed to the hospital. It was such a scary time because we didn't know for sure what would happen to him, and we felt so bad for our little kitty because he had to be alone in an unfamiliar place for so long. I cried a lot, that's for sure. Twenty days later, we brought him home, only to have to take him right back to the hospital again for another heart-wrenching week.

I was (and still am!) so blessed to have all of the support I found here during one of the worst months, and years, ever. So many of you bought things from my shop and closet sale, some donated money, and a ton of you offered plenty of much-needed cheering-up. I can't say thank you enough! Lily seems to be back to normal (other than requiring about $60 worth of special food a month), and I am so grateful to have him around every single day. He cuddles with me every night, purring loudly right into my ear, and I can't imagine life being any other way! Of course I took lots of pictures of him today, to document this one year anniversary.


Yep, he makes my heart melt every time! ( Scalloped border by Pugly Pixel )

  2. So cute.. Lily as a boys name though? Did you think he was a girl or just a fun namer? My male rabbit is named Poppy so I can relate

    I'm glad he's better.. I hate stories of ill cats, mine almost died around this time last year after an accident in the bathroom found him falling into scalding hot water.. it was the most horrible thing and I don't think I've ever felt so guilty!

    I hope Lily stays healthy for many many years :)

    1. We thought he was a girl, and the vet even told us he was a girl when we brought him in after we found him! I think it suits him though, he's so girly.

      Oh my gosh, that is so scary! I'm glad he's ok!

      Thank you! ;)
