20-YEAR-OLD, BLIND AND DEAF CAT GOES MISSING FOR MONTHS – OWNERS REACTION WHEN SHE’S FOUND WILL BRING YOU TO TEARS
Raymond McNamara from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and his cat Lily share the most amazing bond. He first found her in Washington over two years ago, as a street cat. They’ve traveled the United states together ever since. One day, while they were at a sand dune, Raymond says, “I walked ten feet away and turned my back for a brief moment. And when I turned around, she was gone.”
He was devastated when he realized he couldn’t find her anywhere. He put up flyers, posters, and asked everyone around. Months went by and Raymond thought he would never see her again, especially since the weather there had been a combination of torrential rain and blistering heat. It would be a miracle if a 20 year old, deaf, and blind cat such as Lily, were to survive.
He tried everything, but she was nowhere to be found.
Two months after Lily had gone missing, a local volunteer noticed her at a nearby construction site, hiding under a trailer. News spread quickly and eventually found it’s way to Raymond. Lily took a couple of weeks to recover, but after that, cat and owner were finally reunited!
Raymond tells people, “She was in bad shape with liver and kidney issues and we had to put her on IV fluids. But with a lot of loving care she made it.”
Raymond made it very clear after the reunion that Lily was his world, and she would never get away from him again.
“There was no greater moment for me than being able to hold her again.”
