Lola's Story...

This is the story about how we came to acquire Lola. She wasn't a rescue as such, more of an accidental happening upon.

Charlie O'Marley came to our home from a friend of my mother. Her cat had had a litter of kittens as black as the night and it was decided that we would offer a kitten a forever home and he would be my 30th birthday treat. After all what does a girl need more on her 30th birthday then a kitten?

About two weeks after Charlie had come to live with us we were looking through the item recycling site better known as Freecycle, when we happened upon an ad for a 9 week old grey kitten. We discussed the matter and deciding that we probably didn't have a chance we fired off an e-mail.

Imagine our surprise when we received one back saying we could have the kitten if we were still interested and they would drop them off the next day.
When Lola came to us she was a pitiful thing. She had ticks on her ears and intestinal worms and her demeanour could only be described as feral. I quick trip to the vets sorted out the ticks and worms and with lots of patience and love she has blossomed into a very beautiful and extremely loving pussy cat.


We would just like to send a few wishes to our kitty and bean friends we have made in our short time blogging.

To Bugsy, puurrs and positive healing thoughts on their way to you. Get better really soon!

To Jasmim, puurrs and positive vibes on their way to you. Get better really soon!

To Charlie Cat's family, We're so sorry we never got to 'meet' Charlie Cat. Our thoughts, prayers and puurrs are with you at this most difficult time

  16. Hi I saw your blog mentioned on Milo and Alfie Marshall's blog "The Cat's Meow" by one of the other commenters and wanted to come visit. We also have a girl cat named Lola and she is also gray (although he is a muted calico so she has bits of peach and white too). If you would like to come visit us we would love it! Our blog is House of Cats (

  17. Lola is very beautiful and looks just like Alfie Marshall (and our Friend Franklin from another blog).

  18. You are gorgeous, Lola, and we are so happy you found such a loving home.

    We are also very happy to meet you all, and want to thank you for coming to help make Andy's birthday such a special day.


  19. Awwwwwww Lola you was such a sweet cute kitteh! And you really needed a wonderfur furever home desperately by da sounds of it. I so happy for you!
