   Leave a treat for Nala

Nala-kitty, Nala-boo, Girlie, Sister

Kitty Complexion:

not curiousvery curious
not vocalvery vocal

I could not live (and mom would never see a security deposit ever again) without my corrugated cardboard scratchpads.

That rapidly growing brown and white thing mom and dad brought home 1 day in March. I also dislike any cats that dare walk past my territory - not even a window screen can stop me from showing them who's territory they happened upon.

Favorite Toy:
I used to love those rubber-coated wire bag clips when we had hardwood floors. The stupid carpeting in our current home keeps me from enjoying those. I suppose fake mice will do until we move. Mom has already been spoken to about this.

Favorite Nap Spot:
On top of the beloved scratchpad or under the bed so I can watch the "thing" they call "Lola-puppy."

Favorite Food:
Mom just switched me from Iams which was yummy but, mom says, not good for me to Felidae. It's delicious. I also enjoy a few sips of the leftover milk from the cereal bowl.

I am brave enough to charge the American Pit Bull Terrier who, only 5 months ago, weighed 5 lbs. and now weighs 40 lbs. but gentle enough to never use my claws on a human.


Arrival Story:
"Mom loves to tell this story so I know it well... My cat-mom worked at the grocery store near human-mom's old place in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. My cat-mom looooved my human-mom to pieces and everytime she made a grocery run my cat-mom would come running from wherever she was and would accompany human-mom while she shopped. (Sometimes while sitting on her shoulder!!) When my cat-mom got pregnant with my siblings and I the store-owners told human-mom that she must take a kitten when they arrive. They told her it was "meant to be" and human-mom happily agreed. A little while later, my brother, sister, and I were born and ready to leave the store and human mom came to get me. I cried the whole first night with her but I quickly realized she was an OK lady. Now she's the only mom I know. She loves me very much.
