    Introducing Nina:)

    It is a real joy for me to introduce you to my new baby girl, Nina.

    She was living on the basement of the building I work on, on the parking area. The guards let her live there and fed her with leftovers, but when I met her -about a month and a half ago- I started feeding her every day with cat food and yummy tuna, so every morning she was waiting for me and before leaving we started spending time together, she was so sweet and loving!

    One day she made me cry: I went to put food on her bowl and she grabbed my feet and started to purr as if she was saying “thank you” with a beautiful smile and when I tried to stand up and walk she wouldn’t let me, as if she was saying “don’t leave” and didn’t care about the food, she only wanted me to stay with her and pet her, she was so skinny and dirty but needed love more than food! I cried my heart out on the way home. I decided to rescue her and two days later I did.
    I was worried thinking it would be hard to catch her, since she looked so free… but I didn’t have to do anything: she walked into the carrier by her own will! I couldn’t believe my eyes!

    I took her to the v-e-t and he was amazed to see her in such good shape, he told me she’s about 2 years old. She stayed there for a week (because I had to travel and they took care of her meanwhile), and she is now clean, healthy and looking gorgeous.

    Today I found out they where going to PTS her on the very next day I rescued her
    Thank God she has a home now, living on the garage while Sophie gets used to her.

    She is so sweet, loving and thankful. I’m crazy about her!
    Here are some pictures, enjoy…

    Look at that gorgeous little face

    Of course she has a fabulous Uncle Gary’s Canadian Catnip Mousie that’s now her own (she loves it!)

    Hello, Nina, beautiful kitty girl! Welcome Home and welcome to Pet Talk!

    Edited to ask: Would Nina be a tortoise-shell kitty? (or tortie with white) She's so pretty!

    Congrats!!! She's adorable and she sure doesn't look 2 years old. She still looks small enough to be a kitten. I hope that eventually she and Sophie will learn to get along. Good luck.

    Thank you SO MUCH, Astrid for caring for her and caring about her and adopting her. God bless you.

    She is beautiful. She has the coloring of Moff's kitty Angel. I'm so glad you were able to
    rescue her.

    What a gorgeous girl! Welcome home, Nina!

    OMG - I can't believe she was going to be PTS! I hope you show these pictures to the guards!

    You rescued her just in time - I am so glad she grabbed your legs and wouldn't let go.

    Sophie may turn out to be a wonderful big sister to little Nina.

    Wow, what a beauty she is! Congratulations on the new addition to your family, although it sounds like she`s had a special place in your heart for quite some time now! And THANK GOODNESS you rescued her just before she would have been PTS! It sounds like the two of you were meant to have that special bond; especially when she just walked right into the carrier with no objection or hesitation. She is such a pretty girl, astrid! Also, glad to hear that when she went to the v-word she was nice and healthy. Best of luck to both of you!
