Being the QUEEN!
Favorite Nap Spot:
Loves the bed and on her humans.
She will hop up on her hind legs and bat your hand for attention, She has quite a quick temper with Carma at tiimes
indoors and outdoors
We were driving home from a weekend away and we saw a sign out in front of an old farm house somewhere outside of Skowhegan that said "Free Kittens". We pulled over and went to the door. While we were standing on the steps talking to the woman living there, a tiny little long-haired tabby popped up over the edge of the step. I lifted her up and we went to the barn to see the mother and the rest of the kittens. The other kittens were males and not half as gorgious as Nala. The boys didn't have the long hair. The woman gave us a cardboard box and we put the kitten inside. We placed the box in back of the car and every time we stuck our heads in to check on her she would be hissing and spitting at us. She was not convincing us that she was big and scary though.
Nala was another cat that I had to find a new home for when I got my service dog. Fortunately, my Mother took Nala & Carma for me so I do get to see them every so often. Nala still comes out to see me and seems to remember my voice. She doesn't like my dog though and will stalk and chase her if she gets too close to her. Rosie (the dog) can read Nala's body language and will back off. She doesn't like being stalked by cats.
After getting her home, I saw that she was covered in flea dust, so the first thing I did was bathe her in a de-flea shampoo. She wasn't a happy little kitten. I didn't have a name for her and when I held her up, her little chin jutted out like a little lion, so I named her Nala from the character in the Lion King movie. And so a queen was born!
A week after I brought home Nala, I found the orphan, Aspen (In Loving Memory). He was about the same age and so the two of them were raised as siblings. Their feline mother figure was Hope (In Loving Memory Of), who was about a year old I think. For a year and a half, this was the happy family. Then Hope was hit and suffered fatal injuries from a car (unsure how or where) and a month later, Aspen was hit and killed. Nala was quite depressed (as was I) with this great loss.
NALA IS NOW AT THE RAINBOW BRIDGE... This past Saturday (October 4, 2015) at about 2 pm, Nala was sent off with love and gentleness to the Rainbow Bridge where she will be reunited with her "Mother figure" Hope the cat, her "brother figure" Aspen the cat and the rest of the crew she has lived with. My Mother, who had taken her in years ago for me was there by her side. She was able to stay home and unstressed for her death which is what I would have wished most for her. She leaves behind her male feline friend, Carma, who is about 18 now. Nala was just a wee barn kitten when we got her. She lived 20 long years! She is loved and will be dearly missed... except by my dog who is no longer stalked or under attack by her.
