As I mentioned in a previous post, Lola has a new home. She spent her last full day here at Our Little Acre on Friday and her new owners came to fetch her on Saturday. They were excited to meet her and take her home to be part of their family and we were happy that she was finally going to live the life she deserved.
She is now a Hoosier kitty, living in Indiana, as is Cocoa, the kitten we adopted out a few weeks ago. I guess we can't be too picky about the homes they go to. (Just kidding!) Actually, when asked whether it made us sad to see Lola go, we could truthfully answer no, because we knew she would be pampered and treasured as an "only" kitty, inside.
We always figured that Lola was an inside cat before she showed up here last fall as skin and bones. She had already been spayed at some point, and she never showed much interest in being outside of either the garage or the pool house. Today, we received the kind of note from Lola's new family that makes us happy as can be:
"Lola's doing great. Took a couple of hours for her to figure out there was no other cat. She's figured out how to get in from the back porch, kittie door, but is still working on going back out. She enjoys being where the action is and she is lovable. If one of us moves, she's right there. Absolutely loves being brushed! Favorite place to sleep at the moment is my closet. Has no interest in going outside which is good because we live in town. I think she knows she's home. Thanks for Lola!!"
Now, hearing that makes my eyes misty from joy over another successful adoption!
