Lilly & Morty's Story...
Morty and Lilly are a bonded pair who are approximately 13 years old and precious as can be. Years ago they were bred by their family and had two litters. Their son Poli lived with them and recently passed while the family was on vacation. They stayed with Poli, on either side until the neighbor came to help. Their blood work shows some elevated levels that are normal for seniors and just need some extra TLC. They love to snuggle in their beds and are very active even though they have arthritis. Lilly is a spry and outgoing girl and Morty is an easy going fellow. It is hard to get so attached to an elderly couple that faces end of life issues but every minute with these precious souls is worth it.
