WINSTON SALEM, NC
“LILY” is in need of a new forever home
3 yrs old, spayed, UTD on all shots, all vet records available
Currently lives peacefully with another cat, a dog and a guinea pig
Best friends with owner's 3-yr-old child
Might do best as an ONLY CAT
Owner says…..“She will sit next to you, curled up against you. She has actually gotten better with being shy. She comes out to see who is here and rubs against a few people. She follows connor and I around. She follows us upstairs every day for reading and naptime. She doesn't like to be picked up and held for long periods but she doesn't fight it. I clip her nails just fine. Very quiet and gentle demeanor.”
Unfortunately Lily has litterbox issues. The current owner adopted her from someone else and was not told about her litterbox issues. For the past 2 yrs the current owner has dealt with worsening litterbox issues. She has had her checked for any medical issues, none were found; she has added more litter boxes and has tried different litters including Cat Attract, no help; she has had her on meds recommended by the vet, no change.
The family now has to move and the issues have gone from bad to worse. The owner’s child has been diagnosed with medical issues that are going to require them to move. The turmoil in the household with packing has upset Lily and made matters worse.
The current owner is being upfront about Lily’s issues and she knows that it might decrease Lily’s chance of finding a new forever home, but she doesn’t want anyone to take her that isn’t aware of and prepared to deal with her litterbox problems.
If you think you might be able to give Lily a new forever home, please contact me, Cathie, at firstname.lastname@example.org
A home visit and vet references will be required.
