WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT LOLA...

It is a fine and delicate line when one has a blog named after a cat. If it becomes too feline oriented, people start introducing you by saying, "She's got this cat blog," or family members say things like, "I'm sorry you're not having any success except with your cat blog interviews," and you become despairing. You slow down on a fine feature like Bloggers + Cats, then Karl Lagerfeld followed by Kim Kardashian get kittens and the entire world's media becomes cat obsessed and starts interviewing them.

If there is not enough feline content you are sent emails addressed to "Dear Lola," - this happens anyway, and she can't answer them unfortunately because she can't type. But still, what I'm saying is it's hard to get the balance right - Depeche Mode were right all along.

 In case anyone still thinks I'm Lola, here is what actual Lola's been up to the last couple of months.

well, in 2008 when i started reading your blog, i thought you were lola for a while and i don't even remember how i discovered you weren't.
but dear lola e-mails that's hilarious :)

Kim Kardashian has a kitten? Must Google ASAP!

I for one don't think of your blog as a cat blog, because I know that cat ladies can be multi-faceted and have interests beyond cats...

random cat - yes it's true, I don't make it easy!

Anabela - oh yes, she's pretty much a Choupette doppelganger _ KK probably hoping for the same media frenzy! Re: cat ladies: Yes indeed they can! Ahem.

I'm intrigued ... Lola sometimes wears a wig ? Or is that her Breshnev in a fur hat impersonation ?
Perhaps I should send her an email and ask....

I just found you through that HiP Paris blog and I love everything I've read so far. I'll take this particular message to heart.

E. Ha, I don't always talk about my cat here, honest!

I love that your blog is titled after your cat! The photo of her with her arms crossed is adorable!
