Man Cycling Around World Finds A Stray Kitten And Brings Her On His Journey

Dean Nicholson, a 31-year-old Scottish traveler was tired from his job as a welder so he wanted to change his lifestyle and see the world from a bicycle seat. “I couldn’t do the 9-to-5 thing,” he said in an interview with The Washington Post. “I wanted to see the world and see what state it’s in.” So, he decided to cycle across the world solo and he began his long journey riding from his hometown Dunbar, Scotland.

From there, he rode through eight different countries and sharing his wild adventures online. But his plans had to change a little bit when he was crossing the Bosnian border into Montenegro and came across a tiny kitten, alone and hungry.

When he spotted the kitten, he decided to stop for a second to stroke her and move on, however, the kitty had immediately shown her affection. She started chasing him and couldn’t leave his side. “I turned around and I had this wee monster chasing after me. Meowing her heart out,” Nicholson told. “She was quite scruffy looking and she was quite skinny.”

He knew that her previous owner had intentionally dumped her and the animal seemed intent on joining him. So, Nicholson took the kitten to the vet, brought her on his journey and named her Nala, after one of the characters in the movie ‘The Lion King’, one of his favorite movies.

He made room for his companion in his front basket, clearing out some digital equipment and carefully placed her there. Nala quickly showed her loving personality and adventurous soul. Sometimes she jumps out of the box and naps or sits atop her loving owner’s shoulder. She attracts everyone’s attention and they always ask for pictures of her.

They travel from town to town and explore new places together. And of course, their bond became even stronger than ever. Not only has Nala captured Dean’s heart, but ours as well. Check out their Instagram and learn more about how Nala changed Dean’s life in the video below, and share with all the cat lovers in your life.
