Photogenic rescue cat becomes Instagram's most famous feline

AN abandoned rescue cat has become an internet hit amassing more than one million followers on Instagram, Daily Mail reported yesterday.

From lazily lounging around the house to modelling a charming bow-tie, the adorable antics of orphaned cat Nala has captured the hearts of people from around the world, the report said.

She's so popular, you can even buy t-shirt or a phone case of her face, according to the report.

But there was a time when four-year-old Nala, who was adopted from an animal shelter, didn't have a friend in the world, the report said.

At just four months old Nala was ditched by her owners who couldn't afford to look after her. It was then she started to develop breathing problems, according to the report.
To make things worse, Nala was separated from her siblings, who were also abandoned at the shelter, but luckily for them, they were adopted soon after.

Nala's luck soon changed when cat-lover Varisiri Mathachittiphan - nicknamed Pookie - laid her eyes upon the ailing kitty, the report said.

The 27-year-old from Los Angeles adopted the cat without hesitation and soon nursed the cat back to health,according to the report.

She was then inspired to set up an Instagram account to share Nala's experiences with her family and friends, the report said.
