There's something about a cat coming into the shelter with a collar on that really gets to me. Of course, she came in as a "stray", but nobody claimed her. Lilly came into the shelter as a happy-go-lucky kitten and she didn't know she was being tossed out with the garbage.
I was so excited to be meeting a foster home at the shelter today who wanted to rescue Lilly. My heart sunk when I arrived early to find that Lilly had a shelter cold (Upper respiratory Infection). It's nothing deadly, but the foster Mom would have to be prepared to give her meds. Sadly, it wasn't meant to be. The foster Mom chose two other cats to foster.
Lilly is still at the shelter. She's still alive, but I don't know how much longer.
I rescued 6 cats today, but hated like hell to leave Lilly. I'm going back to the shelter tomorrow to rescue a few more cats, but Lilly is still not on my rescue list tomorrow.
So I'm asking you...and anybody that will listen: "What About Lilly?"
