It’s now been five years since Lola (formerly known as Lolabelle the Magnificent) arrived home from the shelter. Five years of dancing in the rafters of catladyhood. Five years of waking at dawn to the sound of bathtub yodeling and the scampering of fury, ham hock legs running the length of the house, back and forth, back and forth. Five years of hugs. Five years of hats. Five years of Lola.
We celebrate this day of wonder with long naps, bad breath, and a hefty helping of Lola’s favorite treat – goldfish crackers. Later on, Lola will snuzzle up on the warmth of a laptop keyboard and watch Mexican soap operas on Youtube, thus honoring her spicy Latina heritage and keeping her occupied while dinner preparations take place – a takeout feast from her favorite restaurant, Wholy Frijoles.
Tacos for everyone! Happy birthday Lola!
