It's White Wednesday with our sister, Lillian Rose DeWinter, Lily Rose was adopted by mom in April 2008. She spotted her at Feeder's Supply, where the Kentucky Humane Society has adoptable animals. She fell in love with her (and Fred).
For those who don't know about Lily Rose, she is about 12 years old now. Lily has one blue eye and one gold eye, and she is claw less. Whoever had her before us had all four of her feet declawed. Her backstory is she was found outside, hiding on someone's front porch. That person turned her in.
Lily has had some health issues in the past, regarding her left ear. That is the side with the blue eye, too. She developed an abscess that would swell on the left side of her neck. It would eventually drain out of her left ear. The last time it happened our vet kept her for x-rays and put a drain tube in the area. The x-rays showed deformed bones in her ear. Bacteria would get behind those bones and then cause an infection. Lily had surgery to remove those bones and her ear was stitched closed. One of the risks of surgery was possible nerve damage to that side of her face. Lily is unable to close her left eye all the way, and the pupil is dilated. Luckily it did not effect that side of her mouth and she can eat normally.
Mom says Lily is a diva and we believe it. She loves people, but she doesn't like the rest of us too much. She tolerates most of us, but she does not like Johnny or Cash at all.
Here she is showing off her beautiful belly and her back feet toe curls! Don't touch that belly though! She is an evil temptress!
