A Domestic Short Hair named Lola is available for adoption at Best Friends Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah...



Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Primary Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: Adult
Color: Gray
Sex: Female

Lola is a loner. Although she lived with other cats before, she stays away from them and hisses when they come near. She's friendly with people, but she usually stays just out of your reach. When you can get to her, she loves having her head rubbed. She does not, however, like to be picked up or sit in your lap. She has a loud, pleasant purr, and has been known to play with catnip toys. We estimate she was born in 2011; she was abandoned outdoors when her person died. She is a picky eater and is prone to weight loss. We are looking for a special person with a lot of patience to end Lola's loneliness.

As part of our Single* pets adoption special, Lola qualifies for free adoption and a free flight to her new home!

*Single pets do best as the only pet in the home.
