Lolita Bonita: one month later

Photographs often speak louder than words, especially in Lolita’s case. I just got off the phone with the animal shelter after reporting in on the condition of Cherry and Lolita. One month later, this cancer patient, tumour-ridden 12-year-old is charming, eats more than the other two cats put together, and purrs like a Harley Davidson!

This is what we started with, taken the day I picked her up from the shelter:


and this is Lolita now, one month later.

Just look at the clarity of her eyes, the beauty that shines through. She still has a long way to go, but what makes me happy is to share these photos:

and is cautiously forging a friendship with Champagne.


So here’s to that old life she left behind – and onward she fights!


  1. Oh, my gosh, Lolita looks so good! You have done such a great job with her and she so appreciates all the love you are giving her. You can see it in her eyes. Also glad to see she is getting along better with Cherry and Champagne.
