Do you remember the day you met your first love?
Soulmates come and go. But if you are fortunate, that special one will stick around and last a lifetime.
Twin flames may come in many forms. Not all bonds are solely human-to-human connections.
The soul-to-soul connection that exists between animals and humans is unique. This heartwarming story is an extraordinary one between a man and his senior calico cat named Queen Lily.
Living life with a Senior Cat
Lily, a female special needs calico cat born in 1999, began her life journey with her owner at age eleven. Navigating the ups and downs of life since childhood, she has been his solid rock.
Together they have navigated the roller coaster of life from puberty and relationships to heartbreak and adulthood.
Lily may be called the queen; however, she is no diva. She’s a very content, mild-mannered, happy cat with a big heart.
Her owner describes her as his soulmate. She intuitively knows his emotions and provides comfort.
With head butts, loud purrs, and an array of meows, she brings abundant joy to his life.
Queen Lily recently celebrated her 23rd birthday. Despite high blood pressure and moving gingerly around the house, she is still going strong.
Although physically challenged, she does not let her limitations stop her from living her best life with her soulmate. She takes joy in every day with simple pleasures like couch surfing and celebrating Instagram milestones along the way.

Unfortunately, senior pets often get neglected or surrendered when facing age-related illnesses. This is so heart-breaking.
They need our extra love and attention. The love they give is immeasurable, making one realize the importance of celebrating every day.
Sharing this inspiring story of how a special senior cat impacts its owner’s life demonstrates how important it is to value animals in all stages and facets of their lives.
Whether physically challenged, enduring a chronic illness, or fighting father time, senior cats need love and care just as much as a newborn kitten.
The love senior cats give is immeasurable. Pets provide humans the gift of unconditional love that cannot be duplicated and lasts a lifetime.
