Lola is a gorgeous girl with silky black fur and sparking yellow eyes. She has had a rough start in life. She was born outside and very sick as a kitten and although she survived, she lived a very lonely life. It was only through the kindness of one person that she survived. Sadly, that person moved and was not able to take Lola with her. That’s when Lola came to TCR. She was so depressed she wouldn’t eat, but after a while and lots of TLC, and she began to eat, but she was still withdrawn.
Things started to change when Lola discovered TOYS! She loves to play with many kinds of toys including the mouse dangling from a string in the doorway, her scratching post, or even her turbo chaser. She is in heaven when playing! Lola is still very nervous around people and will hide until she feels really safe. It's taken her a while, but she is often found staring at her foster mom from afar and giving her smiles with her eyes.
Lola has also become friends with the other cats in her foster home and can often be found cuddled up next to the household cat Romeo. She has learned by watching the other cats, therefore its best for her to go to a home where there is at least one other friendly cat.
Lola is extremely well behaved in that she only uses her scratching posts for her claws, has no issues with using the litter box, and has never been seen on a counter. As well, despite her initial distrust of strangers, when she is finally caught she remains quiet and well behaved for the vet.
Lola is becoming more social everyday but she needs a patient adopter who will help her come out of her shell and give her time to learn to trust. When Lola gets very stressed she does not lash out, rather the opposite; she withdraws into herself and stops eating. For this reason, when she goes to a new home, its best if she is kept in a small room to start so her eating habits can easily be monitored. At this stage, she sometimes has to be convinced to eat, but this is easily done and accepted by her. She needs a gentle reminder to get her going. Once she remembers how yummy her food is she will get back to her normal self. Won't you give this beautiful girl the happy ending she deserves?
