How do you tell the difference between Nala and Eevee?
A lot of people have asked us this. The easiest to spot the difference between both of them is that Eevee has a beauty spot on the right side of her mouth close to her nose. Also, Nala's face is rounder compare to Eevee.

In a few short words/sentences, tell us about your cats' personalities.
Although they are sisters, Nala and Eevee's personalities are very different. Eevee is our little private investigator, she loves to explore and investigate things. She's always so curious about everything and very brave. Eevee is very smart, she quickly learned how to sit and was able to play fetch at one point!
Nala on the other hand is just full of surprises! She's very gentle, very patient but she's also very comical. Nala loves bringing things inside the house whether its twigs, tree barks, leaves and the list goes on. She also loves to talk. She'll tell us when she wants to go outside, she'll tell us when she wants to play, she'll tell us when she wants more food, she'll tell us when she's lonely and she'll tell us when she's going to the toilet. She's surprisingly very active and agile. She can jump higher than Eevee, high enough that at one point she did a backflip and nearly caught a bird flying over her head!
How have your cats transformed your life from the moment you've met them till now?
I think the biggest transformation is that we appreciate animals even more because they have the ability to love unconditionally. Also, patience, because these two are running our household!
What do your cats mean to you?
They are part of our family.

How did you and your cats first meet? Tell it to us in the form of a short story.
We always knew we wanted to adopt and we came across Nala and Eevee on Pet Rescue. They are sisters, inseparable, and had to be adopted together. When we put forward our adoption, unfortunately, someone else had already lodged an interest. At the time it was looking like Nala and Evee was going home with them. However, the lady who rescued them has asked us to come to her house and meet the girls. I remember how tiny they were and how quickly it was for us to fall in love with them. From then on, its as if everything was meant to be. We got told that our adoption papers were approved and that they are ours! To this day we are still in touch with the lady that rescued them and she comes over every now and then to play with the girls.
What do you think your cats think of you?
I would like to think they see us as their family members. I find that Nala and Eevee love to be around us and sometimes they get lonely when we are out of sight for a long time. Also, they are very intuned with our emotions. They can tell when we are having a long and difficult day!
Your cats are part of your family. What are some things they do that make you think that they consider you part of theirs?
Being aware of our emotions and that they love to bring things they "captured" home. Even if it's a dead leaf or twig!
What are some accounts your cats like to follow on Instagram?
Why do you feel that it is important to show the world that Cats are Family?
I think cats are misjudged by a lot of people. I have heard numerous times that people say cats are boring and that they can't show emotions. It's a shame that a lot of people don't see that cats have multiple layers of personalities. Maybe the way they show love is not as obvious as other animals, but little things like cuddling in bed at night or rubbing their face against yours are how they show love. Cats are smart, funny, and unique beings. I encourage everyone to adopt one, two, or more! :)
