One Cute Thing: @1Bike1World and His Cat Nala

Even if you don’t love cats, the Instagram @1bike1world is pretty hard to resist.  A 31-year old Scottish man named Dean Nicholson got tired of his day job as a welder and decided to travel the world on his bike.  Along the way he adopted an adorable kitten he named Nala that he found on a roadside in Bosnia.  He customized the basket on the front of his bike for her and she has been by his side, or on his shoulder or head or back, ever since.  The pictures he posts on Instagram of their adventures and cuddles are heartwarming.  Now they are stopped in Greece for the summer — so the scenery is nice to look at too.  But they are hardly alone — over 400,000 people are following them.  They’re purrty cute!
