Lola: 1/1/2009 – 6/2/2020

I would wake up every morning with Lola lying on my chest smiling at me and purring.

I brought Lola home to a full moon rising over the Sandias on April 3, 2015. I buried Lola at sunrise this morning June 3, 2020. We had five wonderful years with Lola. Lola was doing the best she could with her rheumatoid arthritis, and we were doing the best we could treating her with steroids and Gabapentin, but she succumbed peacefully last night.

Lola originally belonged to our neighbor. They got her when she was about a year old in 2010. Lola used to spend a lot of time at our house because the neighbors had dogs that bullied her, and our neighbor’s didn’t like cats as much as dogs. We ended up taking Lola after our neighbor’s moved to New Zealand. Moving in with us was a dream come true for Lola.

Lola helping me with cleanup after the raccoons ransacked our outdoor kitchen in 2011.

Lola was always a Catzilla type cat. She never liked other cats much, but she loved people.

Lola was a really good sport and a good kitty model. She actually seemed to like my limp celery on cats project.

She was often surprised by Spunk’s magic tricks:

We really miss Lola. Rest in peace Lola.
