We’re Talking About ...
SHARED BY THE CATSTER TEAM
1@the_foofy When I bumped into Maia Veron at CatCon, we got to talking about her adorable 8-year- old blue point Himalayan cat, Lola. Of course, this too-funny “Kawaii Princess” has her own
Instagram page with (at press time) almost 13K followers, where you can indulge in photos of her and her
Persian brother, Starman.
Maia first shared Lola with the world on Tumblr but
moved to Instagram in November 2014, which Maia
said, “turned out to be the perfect medium for sharing
Lola’s unique voice and personality.”
Why create the_foofy? “Lola is a constant source
of happiness and entertainment for me with her funny
face and fluffy shape,” Maia shared. “I wanted to make
other people happy and share her ridiculous cuteness
with the world.”
Of course, I had to find out, what does “the
foofy” mean? Turns out Foofy is just one of Lola’s many
nicknames, but this one from one of her friends who
popped out with “you is a foofy foof!” when he met her, stuck.
Maia and Lola share a love of anime, Japanese fashion, and
pop music, which is why Lola’s Instagram photos are decorated with the popular Japanese app Line Camera. This is also
how Lola got one of her other nicknames, Kawaii Princess.
Lola doesn’t just hang out and pose for the camera. “Aside
from leaping into my bed from her cat tree and giving me a
heart attack,” said Maia, “Lola enjoys showing her new little
brother Starman who’s boss, sitting on my desk and staring
intensely until I obey her mental commands, and scrolling
through Milo’s Instagram.”
Who is Milo? He’s Lola’s “one and
only love of her life.” (@lucablu_).
Not only did Lola meet Milo through
her Instagram page, but she’s also
gotten a lot of cat toys in the mail.
As for Maia, thanks to @the_foofy,
“I have made lots of new friends
and fully embraces my lifelong cat
