The Lola The Rescued Cat Family
Hi! I'm Lola, and I'm a very lucky cat. My life took a turn for the worse when I was found in a garbage dumpster in East Harlem in New York City. I was taken to the city shelter, but I got very sick before I could be put up for adoption.
A wonderful person named Leslie saw me in the sick ward and responded to my silent plea for help as I looked up at her. Even though my face was full of mucus and food, she saw the love in my eyes and rescued me. She took me to her vet, the best in New York City, to get better. It turned out that I had a bad Upper Respiratory Infection, hypothermia, broken canine teeth, and only weighed 3.2 pounds. I had to be force fed for a while. Mommy saw my picture on the internet and wanted to help me. When we met she instantly fell in love with me and said I could come and live with her. I am now happy in my forever home with my family.
I'm a very lovable cat and I love giving kisses. I'm also very chatty, and I'm always chatting about something!
|That's OK, Mommy. You don't have to make the bed right now.|
Some of my favorite things are my string, the cat dancer toy, snuggling with Mommy, and sitting in the window trying to chase the birds.
My goal is to shed light on what happens to some pets when they are abandoned or neglected, and how scary it can be for them in a strange place like a shelter. I also want to let people know the happiness a rescued pet can bring into their lives, and encourage them to adopt a pet from a rescue or a shelter. It's important to treat all animals with respect and love, and I hope our book and our blog encourages people to do this. Rescued pets are the best breed! Don't buy a pet, adopt one!
Hi, I'm Lexy. After I was abandoned by my family, who moved away and left me behind, I found myself at the Hudson Valley Humane Society in Rockland County, NY, where I lived for almost a year. One day when I was at an adoption event at Petco in Nanuet, NY, Mother came in with her family to buy things for her niece's new puppy. She eventually found her way over to the adoption table to see the cats, and there I was. She says it was love at first sight. One week later she came back to get me and brought me to my forever home with her. I quickly accepted my reign as Queen of the household and we've been best friends ever since. (By the way, Mother and I are from the same hometown.)
|My first day at home.|
I am not a lap cat and I do not like snuggles. But Mother knows I love her because I'm very sweet and show my love to her in many other ways (such as rolling over and showing her my belly and pawing at her arm when I want her to pet me.) Mother is my favorite human.
|I am the Queen of the house.|
I join Lola in her quest to bring attention to rescued pets and to tell people animals should be well respected and taken care of. I'm proud to have a voice against animal cruelty.
Growing up in Rockland County, New York, cats were always a part of my family, and I can remember having a cat in the house most of my life. They were always considered true family members and treated with the utmost respect. We never bought a cat or went to a shelter to adopt one - they always found their way to us. Animal rescue came to my attention after adopting Lola and Lexy, both shelter cats. Since that time, I have been an advocate for animal rescue and rights, and have utilized social media outlets to network for animals that need saving. I have also participated in transports, bringing rescued, and previously unwanted, pets to their new forever homes.
By day I am a Behavioral Psychologist (working with adults with Intellectual Disabilities and Autism) and a Licensed Massage Therapist. By night I am a writer and blogger. I started out as a "microblogger" with an active Facebook Page and after publishing my book I branched out and founded my blog in December 2014. I'm passionate about animal rescue and rights and want to help promote responsible pet ownership. I also think my cats are cute, and I want to share them with the world.
I decided to share Lola’s story to bring attention to animal rescue. When writing my book, I said if I could save the life of just one animal then my mission would be accomplished. You can only imagine my joy when someone posted on my Facebook page that not only did Lola's story inspire her to adopt a cat from the shelter, but she named her new cat Lola.
Ten percent of all proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to rescues and shelters.
Thank you for joining me on this journey.
