Chacha and Lily were born in a small garden in Taichung,  during the winter of 2015. The brother and sister lost their parents and were found by the neighbors when they were only two months old. After this they stayed in a shelter where we met them before Christmas. We then took Chacha and Lily back to Taipei with us.

At first, Lily (the sister) didn’t eat or drink for nearly three days. She curled up in a corner of the bed because she couldn’t take the new environment after her trip North. We took her to the vet, gave her medicine, tried everything we could, but nothing worked. Chacha (the brother), who seemed very worried, stayed next to Lily and had no spirit.

We were so concerned and tried to seek advice from people who had experience with cats. Who could save our babies? A friend of ours had an idea and told us to give her a cardboard box. We found an old box, just to give it a try. Poor little weak Lily went inside that box by herself. After an hour, she got our and started eating the food we had prepared next to her. The cardboard box saved our Lily! Since then, our family has an everlasting bond with cardboard boxes.
