Meet Marc Nelson's ‘baby Nala’
Last April, Marc Nelson became an accidental "cat daddy" when he rescued an abandoned kitten that he named Nala. He found the cat on the beach in front of his kitesurfing resort near Boracay. The two-week old kitten now accompanies the popular host on the beach and is obviously loved by her new human daddy. 

So this happened in the last 24hrs... I'm the proud new daddy of a 2week old kitten that we found amongst the coconuts near the beach. Sadly her 2 siblings had been killed by dogs, but this fiesty little girl survived. Now on Daddy duty, feeding her every 3 hours. I've decided to call her "Nala" which means "first drink of water" in Arabic, "beloved" in west Africa, and more importantly, "lioness" in Swahili. Rawr! ???? have to thank my neighbors daughter Mischa for showing me where she was. (Pls note we looked for the mother and even left the kitten for a couple of hours in case the mum came back, but no luck). Now I know how you feel @joeymeadking @hailtothe_king @serenalau_. #daddyduties #myfirstcat #futuremousetrap #needstogrowbiggerthanthemicefirst #whoneedssleep #atleastithinkshesagirl #nalathebratcat #nalathefiestycat #nalathebeachcat #nalathebaharicat
