   Leave a treat for Nala

My full name is Nala Marie. My family likes to tease me with the names of Sweet-pea/Stinky poo, Nala-wala Washington, and Buddha Belly. OUR SWEET NALA LEFT US TO GO TO THE RAINBOW BRIDGE ON 06/29/09. We miss you so much.

Orange & White Tabby

Eat, cuddle up under the blankets in the morning, Eat and sleep.

throws up what she eats, she likes to be a living alarm clock at ghastly hours of the night

Favorite Toy:
A Disneyland cat toy with catnip on one side and a crinkle thing on the other, string, and her "sister" Tabitha Louise

Favorite Nap Spot:
In the middle of the bed or right on top of your chest.

Favorite Food:
Orange Juice (extra pulp), peppermints, anything you have in your hands that you are eating.

Nala can roll on her stomach, she can box, and if you rub her belly you have good luck. She is a rare orange tabby. Most orange tabbies are male.


Arrival Story:
My family and I had a hard blow when one of our cats, Samantha, was found murdered (she had been hung). It felt like there could be no recovery. Then, our neighbor came over one day and asked, " Would you like a cat?" My Dad quickly said no (he's said that to every cat we've ever had). There, on my neighbor's car, was a tiny little kitten that I fell in love with instantly. 'Lion King' was my favorite movie at the time and seemed to be an appropriate name. That night, My Mom warned me not to fall asleep with the kitten in my bed. I didn't mean to fall asleep; but when I woke up, Nala was sleeping right next to my head. She has been my girl ever since.

When Nala came to live with us we had a huge Ragdoll named Peter No-Tail. We were afraid how he would react to the tiny kitten. He took right to her and would snuggle with her. Pete would be so patient when Nala would be playing and pouncing on him. But when Pete was finished letting her play...he would bop her once on the head. It was a five short months later that Pete decided to leave and pursue a career in modeling, we saw his picture on an advertisement in a "Cat Fancy" magazine.
