Hi folks! We would like to introduce you all to a very special Kitty called Nala. Nala is a six year-old Siamese and tabby mix who was adopted from an animal shelter as a kitten. Since her humble start in life, Nala has gone on to become one of the most recognizable cats on the internet! Every week, we spotlight a different animal Instagram star!
Nala shares her story on her website: "The story of one kitten, Nala, starts off at a home where the owners could no longer take care of the cats and kittens because there were too many. Nala was then taken away to the shelter where she was separated from her original family…The reason I started her Instagram was to share her with family and friends back home. I've never imagined she would have this many followers, but now that we have your attention, there is an unfortunate truth that occurs in shelters. The truth is that kittens and puppies alike are helpless and rely on their human companions to care for them. In shelters, 75% of them are killed due to over population, so it is really important to spay or neuter your pets. Another disturbing truth is that there are people who want them only in the beginning and don't take care of them later on. If you want to adopt a kitten or puppy just because it's cute, don't, but if you plan on taking care of them and giving them a happy home for the rest of their lives, then please do."
Very important words to take to heart!
