Every cat owner wants to keep their cat, so it’s always a tragedy when a cat and its owner get separated. That’s what happened to Raymond McNamara when he was vacationing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with his cat, Lily.
McNamara and Lily were strolling along together on Feb. 11 when suddenly she disappeared near a construction site. What made matters worse was that Lily is blind, deaf and 20 years old. Eventually, McNamara returned home to California, fearing he would never see his cat again.
Fortunately animal rescue officials found Lily near the construction site. Although Lily was weak and dehydrated, she was still alive. McNamara drove cross-country to retrieve Lily so the two of them can be together once more.
