Nala Cat is an 8-year-old Siamese-Tabby mix who became an internet sensation thanks to her cuteness. Nala happens to be the Guinness World Record holder for The Most Popular Cat on Instagram.
Varisiri Mathachittiphan adopted Nala from a shelter when she was five-months-old. Mathachittiphan created an Instagram account for Nala so she could share adorable photos and videos of the wide-eyed cat with her family and friends.
She never expected Nala to have over four million followers. With her ever-growing fame, Mathachittiphan wanted to use the account to raise awareness about the sad 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,” reads her website.
It’s a lifetime commitment when you get a kitten or puppy as a pet, so contemplate first before making this decision. But if you do, please adopt one from the shelter.
