She meows when she is hungry and probably many of you are saying "of course she does, that's what cats do", but up until very recently, Lola was a quiet cat. Purring when contented, which seems to be most of the time now, but otherwise silent. So when I first heard a thin little meow I was very surprised and I think she was too and appeared to be watching for my reaction.
Of course I praised her, asking was she hungry, did she want some dinner and then gave her the food. She now meows quite firmly and runs to the kitchen if I ask does she want some dinner.
She sleeps on my bed, of course, but now instead of always sleeping at the end of the bed, Lola will often curl up beside my hip or my arm, or in the curve of my lying down lap when I'm on my side.
Last night, she did a very "Angel" thing, walking up the side of the bed, across the top of the pillow, then lying there with her face on the pillow beside mine for quite a while and purring the whole time. If she ever sleeps beside me and wraps a paw around my upper arm, I'll....well, I don't know what I'll do, because that's another very "Angel" thing.
Lola does do one thing different that Angel never did. She likes to play with small rubber balls, batting them around and chasing them until they are all lost under the bed or couch. Then she mopes around until I get them all out again.
Here she is, rearranging all the cushions and getting comfy on the couch.
