I love this basket. After this selfie was snapped Mother put another cushy blankie in the bottom so I would be more comfortable.  And of course, I love my pillow made by our pal Zoe Blue's mom.

Lola's Great Collar Caper

Hello and Happy Wednesay! The other day I had a caper - Lola's Great Collar Caper!  Mommy came from work and noticed I didn't have my collar on. I was naked! She asked me where it was, but I wouldn't tell her. 

The next day she woke up and found this in her bed: 

My collar was in her bed! She wanted to know how it got there, but I wasn't meowing anything.  I can't give away my secrets. 

How do you think it got there? Do you have secrets from your humans?

It's My Sixth Gotcha Day!

Hello and Happy Monday! Do you know what today is? Go ahead, take a guess. OK… never mind… let me just tell you. Today is my gotcha day! Six years ago today I came home to live with Mommy and Lexy. Six whole years – I can’t believe how time flies. I don’t have a ton of pictures of me during that time, so I have to use the same photos every year.  I really hope you don’t mind. 

OK, so my adoption journey has three parts. It all began on January 6, 2011 when I was rescued from the shelter.  Here’s what I wrote in my diary that day: 

“Today was an exciting day! A worker came to my cage to take me out and put me in a box. I got real scared because I thought I was going to be put to sleep.  I couldn’t see out of the box so I didn’t know what was going on.  I heard a lot of humans talking, and the next thing I knew I was in a car.  Imagine that! A car! A little while later I finally got to come out of the box and I couldn’t believe it – I was in a different doctor’s office.  “Oh boy, here we go again” I thought. I looked up – and there was the lady that was asking about me yesterday!” 

It was so good to be out of the shelter, even though I was a little confused. 

The second part of my journey is probably my favorite, and that’s the day I met Mommy. Before I tell you about that, let me share a little something she wrote on Facebook on January 7, 2011.

2017 Pet Blogger Challenge

I’ve been a little out of the blogging loop lately and was unaware of the’s 2017 Blogger Challenge. On Friday I read Melissa’s post on Mocha’s Mysteries and Meows which inspired me to participate and share my answers with you. My goal for 2017 is to challenge myself as a writer and a blogger and move out of my comfort zone.  I've never participated in a challenge before, but here goes! 

1.  When did you start your blog and, for anyone who is just seeing it for first time, please provide a description of your site. Would you say your blog focuses more on sharing stories with your readers, or providing a resource for your audience?

I started my blog around May of 2014. I was very new to all of this, and was on a platform that I didn’t understand, so I didn’t do much with it. In December of 2014 I decided to move over to Blogger and that's when I started blogging. 

I originally started my blog as the official website for my book but as time went on it began to take on a life of its own. Lola The Rescued Cat is a humorous blog written (mostly) from the perspective of my cats, Lola and Lexy. I am passionate about rescue and animal welfare and like to promote this as well as responsible pet ownership. I do this by sharing information on health, safety, and animal welfare. I want cats to be able to live happy and healthy lives with their owners and stay out of the shelters and off the streets. My blog focuses both on sharing stories and providing resources. I’m planning on sharing more stories about the day to day antics of Lola and Lexy in the coming year. 

2. What was your proudest blogging moment of 2016?

Being accepted for my first paid blogger’s campaign was definitely a proud moment.  For me that meant that my blog was getting attention, and also that my writing was improving and was on a level that made brands want to work with me.  

3.  Which of your blog posts was your favorite this year and why? (Please include a link.)
Choosing one is hard, but one that is on the favorite list is one I wrote about Tabby’s Place for Blog the Change for Animals. Tabby’s Place is one of my favorite rescues and I always enjoy writing about them to bring attention to what they do.
