Lola & Lucy
When Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue, based in Kenosha, WI, was contacted by Happy Jack Cats all the way over in Boise, ID, about two neglected little Persian sisters who were kept in deplorable conditions, there wasn’t much to think about. They knew they had to help. Happy Jack Cats played a huge role in getting these girls to safety, but they quickly realized that Lola and Lucy needed more than what they could provide and reached out for help. As it turns out, SPCR was one of fifty rescues contacted for help by Happy Jack Cats, but the only one who responded and acted on it.
Rather swiftly, volunteer transport was organized from the vast pool of SPCR supporters, which extends around the country. One leg of the transport involved flying the girls from Boise to Chicago, but first they needed medical clearance from a vet to be sure they were healthy enough to fly. Once clearance was granted, the girls were on their way to freedom.
Because SPCR is a home-based foster rescue, the girls are now settled in their foster home where they are receiving nutricious food, warm beds and medical attention. They are bonded sisters named Lola and Lucy. They are bonded because Lucy has no eyes and uses Lola, who only has one eye, as her ‘seeing eye cat’. Together, they share one eye and have never been apart. Both girls have severe dental disease and are dangerously underweight, but are happily eating in foster care with lofty goals of putting on enough weight to get their dentals. Despite their pitiful start, Lola and Lucy are sweet, loving girls enjoying the good life and the luxury of a clean litter box!
Lola and Lucy are just one example of the many day to day adventures going on behind the scenes at SPCR. You can help Lola and Lucy, and others, by supporting SPCR. Please donate today!
