Nyla Hope “Fatcat” Hamm
Nyla was born on April 26, 2016, and passed over the rainbow bridge on September 10, 2019. A lot of love was packed into the three years Nyla was on this earth.
Her family rescued her as a kitten from Kokomo Humane Society. Before even meeting her, they fell in love with her beautiful markings they saw in a photo. Her split chin - half black, half white – was unique and made her extra cute.
Nyla’s personality was just as unique as her markings. She could be a bit moody at times…maybe even a little grumpy. However, she could be extra loving at other times to make up for the grumpiness. In fact, if she was wanting love and attention from her family she relentlessly pursued them until she wound up in their arms.
You could often find Nyla searching for her favorite human, Anthony. She would sit patiently outside his door, just waiting to be let in so she could sit with him. Anthony could call her name, (much like you would do for a dog), and Nyla would come running to him every time.
Unlike most, Nyla never really liked treats. She loved her cat food though! Whenever she heard the can being opened, she came running! Nyla’s family will miss her quiet little “meow’s”…for some reason, they were always very soft. They will even miss her “growls”, that came out much louder than her “meow’s” when she was having a grumpy day. It’s safe to say, Nyla’s family will miss everything about her because they loved her so very much!
Nyla is survived by her parents, Mike and Coby Hamm; human brothers, Anthony Hamm and Daniel Hamm; furry (dogs) brother & sister, Rocky and Sophie; and furry (cat) sister, Haven.
Nyla’s family would like to extend thanks to Dr. Alva Jackson, and the entire staff at Markland Veterinary Clinic in Kokomo for the excellent care they received during this difficult time.
