Authors With Cats: Meet Lola
Today's post is from author Claire Marti. I always love to read about rescue cats! My own cat Winnie was adopted from our local SPCA, after someone found a litter of kittens outside, near a radio station.
Lola by Claire Marti
Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets…
I proudly admit I’m the Crazy Old Cat Lady in Training. I’ve had cats my whole life and been rescuing them as long as I can remember. Each one holds a special place in my heart, but today’s tribute is for Lola.
She seduced me the moment we met. She was six months old and the last kitten left from a litter born outside in the woods. Her foster mom told my husband and me that Lola hid from every potential adopter until she met us. We like to believe she was waiting for us.
A beautiful tortoiseshell tabby, or torbie, Lola exudes spunk, sassiness, and a sliver of shyness. Her repertoire of meows is vast so you know where you stand with her. She trills when she is pleased, purrs when she is happy, and squawks when it is time for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Lola sits on my writing chair and supervises my work. Occasionally, she will review my manuscript and offer feedback. She’s spoiled rotten, so the song does apply…Lola gets whatever she wants.
