Like most rescue cats, Nala had a rough start in life. After living on the cold streets for a few years, Nala fell pregnant. She found a snug spot to give birth to her babies but developed some complications during the delivery.
Nala gets a lucky break
Thankfully, a good samaritan found Nala just in time and rushed her to an animal hospital. Vets managed to save mum and her kitten, who then handed them over to an animal rescue centre.
The kitten soon found a new home, leaving mum all alone in the shelter. However, despite everything she'd been through, Nala has never stopped smiling!
Nala's permanent smile is the result of a cleft lip, but this amazing kitty is just as happy as she looks!
The friendly mog is always rubbing against her human friends and loves snuggles and chin tickles. When she spots a new visitor, Nala starts meowing for attention, flashing her beautiful smile in the hope that someone will scoop her up and carry her off to a forever home.
A special cat needs a special home
But while she's getting plenty of attention from potential cat parents, Nala has some special dietary requirements and, as a former stray, finding the right home environment is crucial.
Ineke Kamps is a volunteer at the shelter. She said:
"The perfect home for her would be a house with a (fenced) garden, with humans who are at home a lot."
Nala is still waiting for the right person to walk into the shelter. But when they do, we're sure they'll fall in love with this very special cat. After all, who could say no to that smile!
