Dean Nicholson met his new best friend on a European cycling adventure. The welder had quit his job and was spending months riding his bike from Scotland to, well, wherever he wanted. While in Bosnia one day he heard a soft mewing while taking a break and saw a tiny kitten approaching him. Nicholson spent some time petting the kitty, then meant to be on his way. But after realizing the cat was malnourished and craving attention he gave her some food and stayed with her a little longer. When it was time to go the kitten followed behind Nicholson, breaking his heart. So he decided to bring her with him. Now named Nala, the cat and Nicholson are inseparable. Just try to watch this short without getting a bit teary-eyed.
