The Story Of Instagram’s Most Famous Cat Nala, Who Has 3.2M Followers

It is highly possible that you have seen this cute cat before somewhere on the web. It wouldn’t be surprising because Nala is the most famous cat on the internet, having 2.3m Instagram followers!

This adorable tabby cat with cute round eyes was given to a shelter by her previous owners when she was just a tiny kitten. Luckily, she was later adopted by Varisiri Mathachittiphan and now can enjoy her purrfect silly cat life!

“Even though I never really intended to adopt a kitten that day, when I saw her, I just knew it was meant to be. The reason I started posting her Instagram photos was to share her with family and friends back home,” said Mathachittiphan.

“I’ve never imagined that my pretty cat would have this many followers, but now that we have your attention, there is an unfortunate truth that occurs in shelters. The truth is that kittens and puppies alike are helpless
and rely on their human companions to care for them. In shelters, 75% of them are killed due to overpopulation, so it is really important to spay or neuter your pets,” insisted the owner.

Now scroll down to meet Nala the cat for yourself!

How sweet. And what a lovely story. Yes, everyone should neuter their animals.

One fine example for the fact that cats are lovely beings. Almost as lovely as dogs.

Oops! You are right Tiny, I didn't think of that lol Okay, so only breeders who are proved NOT to be puppy and kitten mills should be allowed to breed and some should be able to breed moggies and bitzers. What I am really trying to say is that indiscriminate breeding means millions of dogs and cats world wide are euthanased in shelters because of human irresponsibility.

Here, cats just live their lives free. We don't have cat shelters and nobody is killing them. They just live and catch mice as they always did. Idon't understand why people put them into shelters and kill them there where you're from.

I know right? I did a speech at school once that was literally called "don't breed or buy while shelter animals die!"

Why do I think that the cat looks Chinese? I mean the eyes are a bit tapered upwards on the edges.

I love this cat! I've had the first pic (big eyes, hat/costume on... anyways I downloaded it from Pinterest, and I send it to my friends when they are sad or angry, with a pertinent comment... they laugh, and maybe it helps a little. This cat has the cutest eyes!
