Meet Nala, the most famous cat on Instagram!
Nala is the most famous cat on Instagram – with nearly 3 million followers (that’s more than any of your other big name celebrity cats – even more than Grumpy Cat & Lil Bub!)
And she’s coming to the 3rd Annual Edmonton International Cat Festival May 28, 2016!
Meet and get your photo taken with Nala!
Before she became an Internet sensation, Nala was an abandoned rescue cat. Her now-mother Pookie, adopted Nala after finding her at a Los Angeles shelter.
It wasn’t until she was adopted and cared for, that she became the lovable cat she is today. Even though I never really intended to adopt a kitten that day, when I saw her, I just knew it was meant to be. After taking her home I found out , what many other adoptive parents know, that when you adopt a cat or kitten from the shelter, they have breathing problems and infections that need to be taken care of. Now imagine a kitten Nala, walking around and sneezing uncontrollably, adorable but very sad at the same time. After given love and attention, and of course some medicine, Nala was back to 100%, and has grown up healthy and big, but for some reason her legs didn’t grow so much.
Pookie, who is originally from Thailand, was inspired to set up an Instagram account to share photos of Nala with her family and friends back home.
It’s hard not to fall in love with Nala through her Instagram photos. She loves dressing up – wearing hats and bow ties – and she’s got the biggest, bluest eyes.
