LULU IS HOME!!!

After almost 3 weeks our beautiful girl is home! Very skinny and weak but alive. We are so happy!

I was stitching in the garden a couple of hours ago and suddenly there she was, going down the path to the back door. I barely recognised her - she was so thin and her face looked so scared and different with dull eyes. I grabbed her and ran for the door and the cat food.

A couple of hours later and she's lost the scared look and seems much better already. She's talking a little and just now rolled over and did a happy trill. She's eaten almost a tin of tuna and drunk lots. She was always a small cat but now she is really skin and bones. We rang the vet but they said just keep an eye on her and get her to drink lots.

We're sure she has been trapped - she is so thin and her back legs are raw at the back as if she has been trying to get out of something. She sounds hoarse too, as if she has been mewing for help.

But, she is home, and with lots of tlc, which she will definitely get, we hope she will get better fast. And we hope she never, ever, ever goes investigating again!

Thank you all so much for your support, best wishes, and prayers. It has helped so much.

  27. Great news.

    I never know what trouble our cats may get into out here in the country - and I know how awful I'd feel not knowing, if they never came back. They've all adapted wonderfully to being indoor-only cats and would rather live that way now!

  56. I am just so happy to hear that your Lulu is home safe with you!! I am so behind on my blogging but I am so glad to know she is home now! Your blog is just gorgeous!! I saw your post in Facebook about wanting a card in there, but I haven't figured out how to do that. Sorry to be so dumb about Facebook, but I am still learning. Your stitching is just awesome in here as well I think you and I like a lot of the same things!! Give Lulu a hug from me!! Hugs to you Debby
