The Essence of Lola

One month ago today I had to say goodbye to my beautiful Lola. It's still unfathomable to me that Lola The Rescued Cat is gone. Her larger-than-life personality and joie de vivre, rivaling any human's, should have given her 20 lives. Or at least more time than only 13 1/2 years on this earthly plane. 

Having a bond as deep and close as the one I shared with her made the decision to let her go infinitely harder because I felt like a piece of me was leaving with her.  For a while I knew we were living on borrowed, limited time. I also knew that I would miss her deeply when the time came, but I didn’t realize how deep the grief would be.

Lola The Rescued Cat: June, 2010 - January 16, 2024

Hello, friends. I wasn't quite sure how to start this post since Lola always says, with her exuberant spirit, "Hello, and Happy Purrsday!" Unfortunately, it is with a very heavy heart that I have to tell you that Lola's exuberant spirit has left her body and she has earned her angel wings.

Miracles Do Happen! Lola's Recovery

Lola: Hello, and Happy Sunday! It is a Happy Sunday indeed! I am over the moon to be here today to share the good news of the improvement in my health. Just three weeks ago I posted that I wasn't doing well, and I didn't think I had much time left with my family and my friends. But miracles do happen, and not only am I still here, I'm doing much better. Let me fill you in. 

To catch up on all of the details, you can read my first post and then the second. I am one lucky kitty, let me tell you, because I had more purrs from humans and pets than I could even count. 

Many thanks to Miss Ann of Zoolatry for this pawesome graphic.

An Update on My Health 11-12-23

Hello, friends. I usually start my posts with "Hello, and Happy (whatever day it is!), but today's post is a little serious. I'm afraid I have some not so good news to share with you about my health. Over the nine years we have been blogging we have read many posts about pets' health issues and have dreaded the day when we had to share some serious news as well. I'm afraid that day is today.
