Lizzie crossed the Rainbow Bridge January 2013
I'm a Hoosier too! Like Tipton, I lived with my feral family at Kentucky Fried Chicken. I was just a baby when I was rescued. I got to ride 600 miles from Indiana to Minnesota so I could have a permanent home. I use love to be on laps, but now I prefer not to have people touch me. I do like to cuddle with Tipton and Charlie, and I also like to chatter with my humans.
Lizzie came from Georgia, where she probably had a rough beginning to her life. Upon taking her to the vet in May because she was limping on her left leg, we found in her x-rays that her back half was full of bird shot, she had a knee injury, and horrible hip dysplasia. The hip injury was most likely due to her breaking her hip when she was young and never having it taken care of. It healed improperly in the socket. Her knee injury was probably due to the stress the hip injury put on her leg. Although she does not need surgery right now, we are taking the advice of the vet to get her as much exercise as possible and she has not been limping lately!
Otherwise, Lizzie is a very sweet girl who loves to give kisses- right on the lips- and snuggle in your bed with you.
