Lily followed him like a puppy dog wherever he went. Whenever she wandered off, she always comes back,” said Kathy Bieniek of Saving Sage Animal Rescue.
But on that day, things were different.
“But when he turned his head, he couldn’t find her.”
Devastated at the prospect of losing Lily, Raymond called the authorities.
Local police and animal rescues soon had a search team on the lookout for Lily.
But eventually, the team gave up due to the poor weather in the area.
Raymond returned to California utterly heartbroken.
Then, Kathy received a message from another shelter: Lily had been found!
“She was in the exact same spot where she was lost,” Kathy explained. “She did not move from the spot. She was waiting for her daddy to get her.”
But the shape Lily had been found in bad shape. She had several medical issues; if she had spent longer in the wild, Kathy believes she wouldn’t have made it.
But when Raymond came to see her, to reunite with her, the sick cat’s demeanor changed completely.
Check out their reunion in the video below, and please SHARE it on Facebook!
Despite a dark silent existence, a deaf-blind cat can enjoy life since they rely on their keen sense of smell and their sense of touch through whiskers on the face and also on the lower leg. Cats which have been blind throughout much of their lives may eventually suffer the additional problem of age-related deafness. Most of the considerations noted for blind cats and for deaf cats apply.
A deaf-blind cat may hear you approaching by vibrations of the air and of the floor. It is likely to become defensive and is easily startled. It can be alerted to your presence by blowing gently in its direction. At mealtimes, blow across the food bowl to waft the scent towards it. Such cats can never be allowed outdoors unsupervised.
