Story

Yesterday we found out that our beloved cat Lily, has developed a very larger tumour in her chest cavity, which has made her lose significant weight, reduced her lung capacity to a quarter of its normal function, and obscured her heart. She is comfortable and currently awaiting CT scan and an outcome to wether or not she can operated on to remove the mass.

we have pet insurance, but i have been informed that the costs will exceed our cover amount by a considerable amount, which at present i cannot afford.

i have asked friends to share any sale posts i will be uploading in the next few days, so that i can try to raise funds to pay for her hospital care.

People have told me to start a just giving page.. it is not something i am very comfortabel with as i dont not like asking for help, especially money from my parents let alone friends, but when i told my children how sick Lily was that changed things!

We are all devastated ar the news and need our Lily back home, wether or not we have any donations, she will be back to good health i am positive! All i ask for is a bit of love ❤️

Thanks in asvance for your kindness! And every little is very much appreciated! Love from Luke, Corey, Kai and of course Lily 🐾

    So Lily has made it through the surgery and is now home! Sporting a wicked hairstyle and feeling a plonker in her new T-shirt! 10 days indoors and then she can have the staples out and hopefully that’s it.. Thanks to all her supporters and I’ll keep you all updated x

    Thank you to all Lily’s supporters on here! You are all very generous, kind people!! Lily has undergone surgery this afternoon to remove the tumour, known as a ‘Thymoma’.. the tumour filled her whole chest cavity and has damaged some of the lung tissue.. the surgeon has also had to remove some of the Lymph tissue to ensure the best recovery and give her longevity.. he is very positive of a good outcome for Lily, and as she is now breathing for herself, is also convinced her lung capacity will return to a sufficient volume. Much love xx
