  Lily the cat loses her ears
Updated 31 July 2002, 16.59
Lily the cat
Poor Lily the cat looks a bit odd now she's had her ears amputated.

But the operation meant she survived skin cancer and is now grateful to be alive.

Lily was found wandering around Kidderminster in Worcestershire.

Dab on the sunscreen


Her ears were badly blistered so the person who found her took her to a vet who diagnosed cancer.

If she'd been left untreated, the cancer would have spread and Lily would have died.

Skin cancer among pets is a growing problem.

Vets say cats and dogs need high factor sun cream on their noses and ears in summer just as much as children.
