ABOUT | Lola The Rescued Cat


Dear Friends, 

Welcome to the Lola the Rescued Cat Community!

I'm Lola, and I consider myself to be a very lucky cat. After being found in a garbage dumpster in East Harlem in New York City, I was taken to the city shelter where I got very sick before I could be put up for adoption.

When I was rescued I had a very bad Upper Respiratory Infection, among other things, and I only weighed 3.2 pounds.
My mom saw my photo on the internet, fell in love with me, and the rest is history! I’m now recovered and living happily in my forever home. (I sneeze from time to time, but that’s because of the URI I had.)

My experience inspired me to use my voice to be an advo-cat for all pets. I started doing that through our Facebook page, and then I wrote my book. But I still had more to say! That's when I started this blog with my sister, Lexy, and our mom, Dawn.

We've been blogging since December of 2014 when my book was published. Over the years we have learned a lot more, and we changed our focus a bit. After we re-branded our blog in 2017, we are proud to bring our readers information about the following:

Advocacy: We are passionate about rescue and animal welfare and promote responsible pet ownership.

Education: We want cats to be able to live the best life possible with their pet parents. We offer informational posts on health and safety, quality product reviews, and ideas to help keep your pets healthy and make them happy.

Entertainment: I'm excited to have a place where we can share our lives with you. This will include my daily adventures and capers with my sister Lexy. And of course, the world through our eyes.

Lexy and my Mom also contribute a lot to the blog (it is a family business, after all!) Lexy often likes to share her words of wisdom with our readers. And Mom, well, you know that people always have something to say!

If you'd like to read my entire rescue story, my book is  Lola: Diary of a Rescued Cat is my book, In it, I tell how I went from being thrown in a dumpster to being the luckiest cat in the world! Please tell me if you've read it and if you liked it. I'll post your review!

Thank you for being a part of our family.

Love and Purrs,
