Tilly is a survivor of extreme neglect.  Seized from her owners following a cruelty complaint to the RSPCA in Sydney,  Inspector James Arentz found her to be in deplorable condition.  The RSPCA uses a scale of five to determine the health of an animal with 1 being a healthy animal and 5 being in dire condition.  Inspector Arentz rated Tilly at a 5+, her situation so critical.
