Inben says: My wife and I first saw Lola in a pet store while on holiday in December 2008. We usually never buy kittens from pet stores, preferring to rather adopt from the many stray kittens that are available from the SPCA. We usually visit the pet stores with the intention of just looking to see all the pets available... and maybe play with the kittens that are on display. But when we saw Lola and her cute little face... well, it was like love at first sight! We decided immediately that we wanted her. We live in Stanger, a small town in South Africa (closest city is Durban). We have two other cats, both strays adopted from the SPCA. Sammy is a three-year-old ginger cat, and Milo is the almost-one-year-old black cat. Milo and Lola were friends almost immediately, but it took Sammy a long time to warm up to Lola. Lola is very affectionate and usually sleeps with us at night. Her favourite spot is my wife's pillow... curled up around my wife's head! She is also quite a hunter already. She seems to love all insects, even cockroaches, much to most of the household's disgust!

What sweet friends! Thank you for (usually) adopting from the SPCA, and I can see why Lola reached your heart. She and Milo are such great friends, sharing all that kitten energy. I hope you all share many loving, purry years together - including Sammy, who may feel he's too old for all this undignified activity :~)
So many wonderful photos, it was not easy to choose one.

Lola is a really sweet looking little personality plus kitty! ;P She is lucky to have her good friend Milo; they look almost inseparable!

She is adorable, I love all the pictures. I adopted a kitten, Missy (short for Mischief) and she has been a delight but it is obvious she was abused and it is so hard to get her to believe we would never hurt her.

I am trying to understand why Sammy was reluctant to warm up to this gorgeous interloper! Jealousy, perhaps! Wonderful photos. (On my Mac I just save the whole series and Bookmark it.)

Wow - I had to look through Lola's photos several times before I could pick a best one - they are all good. Lola is adorable and so curious and busy. I love the part about her sleeping on your wife's head. My late beloved Andrew did that his whole life. Talk about cuddling!

"Treasures" is a good word for these two and that photo. Imagine pillowing your head on soft warm friendly fur like that.

I hope that little Lola does not climb into this pipe and get stuck. Lola is a beautiful little cattie. All your catties are adorable. Thanks for sharing.

Many pet stores work with rescue places to find homes for their kittens, so we shouldn't necessarily avoid them. My kitty came from a "pet store" but she was from the Humane Society.

Lovely kitties you have!! :)

I can see the appeal, she is gorgeous! I would have found it impossible to resist her too and she sounds like a real sweetie. Love the shots of all the cats together, very cute.
