ST. MARYS — One-year-old Nala seemed oblivious of the new adventure her life was about to take on. She rolled around on the ground, fetched sticks, and greeted everyone, who would lend a petting hand, with a healthy purr. But one thing was certain. A connection was made.
Lori Moon, of Newport, R.I., learned about her new kitten Nala through Sue’s Animal Rescue Team’s (SART) Web site. Since she was coming to the area for business, she called and set an adoption appointment this week. The two hit it off instantly, and Nala is now resting comfortably in her new Rhode Island home.
