Dr. Kara, thank you so very much for such a detailed and comprehensive answer, I really am so grateful and although still concerned hopeful that it is not lily poisoning.
She has had no loss in appetite and has even eaten her special diet food from the vet this evening which is encouraging given she is an exceptional fussy eater and only usually eats 'bad' food i.e. Sheba.
She is a sleepy cat and quite clingy but she has been pretty much like that since I've had her for the last 2 months so not unduly worried.
I have only just disposed of the lillies this evening but have disinfected where they were positioned and the vase so hoping no damage has been done.
I will definitely take a sample of her stools to the vet to test for any parasite issues and continue to keep a close eye on her given I have only got rid of the lillies today and she is still poorly.
I really cannot thank you enough, although still worried I am slightly more relieved and you have helped to settle my mind.
Thank you very much.
Of course you are worried because the lilies are horribly toxic and you feel guilty exposing her to them. With no evidence of any bites taken out or leaves missing I don't think she touched them.
But truly the cats I have seen with lily toxicity are very sick cats, they are vomiting, lethargic kitties and then 12- 24 hours later they begin to try to drink a tremendous amount of water.
She is very lucky to have landed in a home where she is so well loved. Please try not to worry, because I really don't think you have anything to be worried about. If you could give me an update in 48-72 hours that would be great.
