How much is your pet's life worth?

For one Millcreek, Utah couple, spending $15,000 to save the life of their cat Lilou was not too much of a price tag.

The COVID-19 pandemic has already hit Golden Gibson and Lianna Warden hard.

Gibson, who works in the setting up equipment such as stage lighting for events, lost his job to the virus in February, before most.

Despite tough times -- their love for a very unique cat, Lilou, outweighed the stresses of worrying to pay for it all.

2News Digital Special Projects Producer Adam Forgie talked with the couple -- and their vet, Dr. Jennifer Alterman, DVM, DAVDC -- about the decision, which was met with an outpouring of love and support from their community.


You can donate to Lilou's Lifesavers GoFundMe.
