Nina San Miguel

nina  san miguel

On my birthday August 5, 2006, we went all over San Antonio in search of a cat.  Our Gracie had passed away on May 8, 2006, and I was grieving and in need of another companion.

Our last stop was the San Antonio Humane Society mobile, it was located at Petco.  Went inside and there she was, pressing her face against the glass wall – trying her hardest to get my attention and SHE DID!  We named her Nina.  Upon arriving at home, we knew she was going to be the Queen of the house.  She was a big girl from the start.

She loved to explore and open all of the cabinets and take everything out.  She loved to go outside and eat grass.  Nina was a unique cat, she thought everyone that entered the house that they were there for her only.  The most lovable, kindness little bundle of joy she was.  Even the kennel staff and the vet clinic said that she was the sweetest.

She would wake me or my husband up in the morning and keep me up late at night.  Nina was my nurse, during foot and shoulder surgery – she took care of me. Always there to cuddle and be loved with me or my husband.  As years passed we feel deeply in love with her.  We miss her tremendously!!!

Nina passed away in my and my husband’s arms on May 2, 2024 at 4:56 p.m. at the young age of 18.  We believe she had a stroke, blind in the right eye and paralyzed on the right side of her body.  I know she is in Rainbow Bridge with Gracie – hopefully my dad is holding them both.

God bless you Nina!! Mommy and daddy love and miss you, and we will see you one day.
