One day Pet Patrol received a call from our TNR volunteers about a mother cat and her four tiny kittens, two of them being Lily and Tux. They were on a country property where it is believed she was abandoned, but had made her way to the barn. She gave birth in the hayloft and eventually this young feline family came into the house, as the mother had proven to be friendly and affectionate. She didn’t have enough milk for her kittens and the owner supplemented them with cows milk, which almost cost them their lives. Cats are lactose intolerant. The kittens had massive diarrhea and became dehydrated. They were all in very poor shape when rescued and in need of immediate vet care. They were brought to the sanctuary and given some life saving treatment, enough to help them make it to the vet the next day. They have all thrived and Lily and Tux were adopted by their rescuer’s mother, a fit and active woman, but elderly. Within a year she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and could not care for the cats any more. Her daughter took responsibility for them; but her life was becoming difficult to manage with caring for her mother, other family members and selling the family property. Lily and Tux were soon brought into Pet Patrol care.


Lily is a sweet and gentle cat. She, like her brother Tux, likes to sit up high and look out the window at the world. She’s interested in the traffic, squirrels and people out walking their dogs. She is a gentle and loving cat, who likes to be pet and brushed, and she will purr loudly in delight. Lily can be a little shy in the beginning, but it is not long before she is joining Tux in games of Chase and Hide & Seek. She is quite attached to him. Lily is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.
