Couple decides to foster a kitten temporarily, but she has other plans

This couple only took in Lola for a couple of weeks. At least, that’s what they thought. But sometimes, our pets have their own ideas, and it doesn't matter what we think!

This story all started with a very common, albeit sad, situation. Kittens were being advertised for sale online. A cat lover who knew this could very well mean a kitten mill situation, decided to go visit the seller.

A kitten in need of rescuing

Upon arrival, she discovered that there was only one kitten left: a little tortoiseshell girl. She was not quite weaned yet, but the kind woman knew that if she left her behind, she might be sold to someone with less good intentions. She therefore decided to take the kitten with her, and drive her straight to Chatons Orphelins Montréal where she could be properly looked after.

At first, the little cat, who was named Lola, was very scared of everything. She trembled at all the new sights around her and looked for comfort.

Creeping into the foster family's hearts

Jess, a volunteer at the animal clinic, noticed how much the little kitten needed her. So she took her into her arms, and suddenly, Lola wasn't scared anymore. She buried herself into Jess’ arms and began to purr.

So Jess decided she would foster Lola until she could find a permanent home for her. But Lola had other plans. In just a few days, she made Jess and her partner Shawn fall in love with her. Lola never moved out, and now, the couple couldn't imagine their lives without her.

Sometimes, we don't choose our pets, they choose us!
