"Lilly", Tortoiseshell Persian, San Jose - Found

On July 19, I received an email from Lilly's person that Lilly was found deceased on a neighbor's front porch. She had been missing for over two months. Her person said she did not know what the cause of death was, but it appeared she had been deceased for a couple of days. 

My guess is that she eventually made it back to her neighborhood, but was unable to find her home again. She may have been attacked by an animal, or she may have had heatstroke. Her nose was very short, she had a heavy coat, and the temperatures had been in the 90's and above during that time.

Lilly is a mostly indoor only, spayed adult Tortoiseshell Persian. She is wearing a collar with an ID tag. Unfortunately, the back window got left open one night and Lilly jumped out. Based on the track it appears that she was chased from in front of her yard, down the street, to a restaurant. From here is the track below.
