Yes, it’s me, Lola Montilla: dog lover extraordinaire…and, new cat owner. Shocker!

It’s been six months since me and my family found and began to nurse Bailey when she was only four days old! We have never been “cat people” but she has become an icon of our family along with both of our dogs, Paco and Maia (who you met in one of my previous POV).
