Little Lizzy just celebrated a milestone, but unfortunately it’s not a happy one.

The affectionate black cat, who is good with both cats and dogs, has now been in the care of Whistler Animals Galore (WAG) for two whole years.

Lizzy celebrates her second year in WAG care.

Not much is known about this kitty’s history. She was almost comatose when she was found in February 2015, which vets soon realized was because of her diabetes.

She now gets insulin twice a day with breakfast and dinner, and is a total champ about it.

Lizzy has lost the sight in both of her eyes, but her vision problems don’t slow her down. In her foster home, she does stairs without a problem and doesn’t bump into anything.

For a senior kitty, she’s super adaptable. And also a snuggle bug: She purrs when she’s pet, loves Temptation treats and will paw you to let you know she isn’t done with cuddle time.

She’s been fortunate to have spent time in two loving foster homes, but they’re not a forever home.

This lovely lady needs a retirement home she can live the rest of her life in. Homes with dogs are cool too, preferably if they’re mellow.

Admittedly, this is a cat with special needs. But she’s special too, and she’s worth it! 

If you want to meet Lizzy, contact the great folks at WAG and fill out an application.

They are also seeking homes for three other paw-some felines: Ira, Douglas and Mindy.
