Another Update on Lily

Mom was going to drive to North Carolina this coming Wednesday to pick up a good friend of hers. She was going to take Miss Lily with her since she needs her eye ointment. However, after discussion with her friend it was decided that the travel might be too much stress on Lily. Therefore mom's friend has made other arrangements to get here.

Lily looks a little better each day. Her head and neck furs are starting to grow back, so now she feels more like a slightly fuzzy hot water bottle. Mom would have sworn she saw Lily's left eye blink yesterday morning, but she hasn't seen it happen again. She says it must be a case of wishful thinking.

Mom's boss did say that Lily can come to work with mom this week. She is going to try if for a couple of days and see how it works out. Lily is still sleeping more than she did before she had surgery. But we know her body is healing and she needs her rest. Mom makes sure Lily eats her food and drinks her water and is using the litter box. So far Lily has been doing all of that.

It looks like the surgeon actually stitched the opening of Lily's ear together so it appears to be closed up now. Maybe that was done to keep any bacteria from getting back down in there.

Mom took Friday off and stayed home with us. It was nice to have her here. The house was cold Friday morning, so she got Lily and put her in bed with her. When mom woke up later, she still had Lily with her, along with Fiona, Fred, Bandit, Sable, and Memphis. Mom says she needs a bigger bed!

We hope everyfur had a good weekend.

Purrs and good nite,
Clarissa & Co.

  3. We've missed the news on Lily's surgery. So sorry to hear she had to have surgery, but we're glad she is healing up well. Maggie May went to work with our mom for a few weeks after she had her knee surgeries.

  7. Poor Lily. Cats shouldn't have to go through this kind of stuff. It's bad enough humans have to. I hope her face isn't paralized. Healing purrz for gentle Lily. xoxo
