My Pack: Part 5



Lily is a little sweetheart.  On August 1, 2011, someone found her in an alley just born she still had some of her transparent sac or membrane still covering her.  They put her in a towel and took her to a nearby pet store where my friend worked.  She took the newborn and nursed her for the first four weeks.  There was no difficulty in her growth at all.  We took her to the vet and they said we were doing a fine job and to keep it up.  I took pictures of her time growing up and she developed wonderfully.  There was a time when one of the dogs tried to play with her and she got a fractured leg, which healed just fine.  I crated her for about a week to let it heal.

She is now a feisty cat of two years in August.  She loves to play with the other cats and with her toys.  At times, I think she thinks she is a dog because if I waded up a piece of paper and threw it she would fetch it and bring it back to me.  When it is time to sleep, she found my lap falling fast asleep.

Well, that is my pack family.  We are one big happy family.  They keep me company in my life’s journey.  I often tell people that my pack runs the house I just rent a room from them.  Of course, it is one expensive bill.  I love my pack anyway.

I have fostered many others but they have found forever homes elsewhere.

    How cute! My kitty’s name is also Lily, aka Princess Lily (since she acts like royalty most of the time ;)) – and she’s calico too.
    Love animals. 🙂

      It must be in the breed. My Lily acts like royalty too. Sometimes she prances around like, “Look at me, I’m soooo cute.” I love my whole pack. Thanks for the comment and the follow.
      Take care.

    Thanks for sharing that lovely picture of your cat. Glad to hear she found a good home. Did you ever hear about the far side cartoon that illustrates the difference between cats and dogs? Well, an elderly woman is feeding her dog and cat in separate illustrations. In the first, the dog has a think bubble that says something like, she feeds me, takes care of all my needs . . . she must be a god. In the second, the cat’s think bubble says the same except . . I must be a god. Also, I really appreciate all your support of the blog. Thanks for tuning in.

      Yes, there is some wild times here at the Franklin Zoo. Never a dull moment. I would not trade them for anything in the world.

      Thank you Paulette. My friends and I try to help as many of our furry friends as we can. They rely on humans to care for them and I am happy to help them. They show unconditional love.
