Lola has crossed the Rainbow Bridge

Lola came into our Safe Placing program on 9/13/15. She was a lovely calico gal with gorgeous green eyes. She was older, and that may have been what prevented people from showing interest in her. She was a character though, and would be happy to stand up and pat at your hand to let you know she wanted her canned cat food served promptly. She liked to be brushed, and could be a talkative gal as well.

Lola lived at the cattery for a year and 4 months, watching other cats come and go. Just waiting for her turn. Finally it came when one of our own volunteers, Robin, who had been asking about her and keeping tabs on her for a while finally broached the subject of bringing her home with her husband. He said yes, of course. And on January 8, 2017 Lola moved into her final home with Robin, Mike and the 2 terriers: Daisy and Xena. Not one issue from the beginning, as she fit right in, and she and the dogs got along great. Unfortunately it was learned shortly after entering her final home that she had more than the thyroid issue that Safe Place was aware of and was caring for. Her kidneys were failing. On May 19th, she lost her fight and crossed the bridge.

Robin has these words for others who are considering adopting an older cat "We have never had a furry family member who captured our hearts as quickly and deeply as she did. People should not be afraid of possible "short term" relationships. We really fought for her and miss her terribly."

Safe Place sends our condolences to Robin and Mike on their loss of Lola. She was truly a special gal. We are thankful to Robin and Mike also for giving her the opportunity to spend her final few months with them.

Lola's lengthy search for a new home is over!

Lola found her new home with Robin, one of our volunteers, and is doing just fine with the two canine siblings. She thinks the dog's water bowl is the best and they are willing to share. Lola has taken over the house and any and all available chairs. She was a perfect fit as soon as she entered her new home and made it quit clear she was staying.

We are so happy that Lola is finally home and wish her many more years of happiness! Many thanks to all those that helped Lola find her new home.

Adoption Bio - 9/25/2015

Hi, I'm Lola, and I'm a DLH tortie mix with lovely green eyes and claws. You won't want to look away as I mesmerize you with my beauty. I'll act shy, but will be happy to warm up to you when you give me a chance. I'm middle aged, and would prefer a quiet home with no other cats. I've lived with small dogs before, and would consider habitating with them again. I like to be picked up and stretched out to my full length, which is rather generous. I'm a thin girl, so I don't weigh much. I will also stand on the floor and stretch up to the countertop to let you know I'd like some of what you are preparing. So if you'd like a little kitchen help, consider me your ready and willing helper. People think I was named for the Kink's song Lola. But I was really named for a song "What Lola wants Lola gets" from the play Damn Yankees. And it's you I really want. Please come meet me today!
