As a cat person and a Braves fan — in that order if I’m being honest — there was no way I wasn’t going to post this once I saw it. It comes via Tim Cato over at SB Nation who noticed that Freddie Freeman and his wife’s tweets en route to Orlando for spring training were not the ordinary mid-February fare.
Freeman, it seems, has a cat. A very cool cat named Nala. And unlike every cat I’ve ever had or ever known, Nala likes the car. Indeed, Nala seems to be enjoying the trip quite nicely:
If they get stuck on the side of the road someplace maybe Chipper Jones and his cat can come and rescue him.
The Braves aren’t going to be that fun to watch this season, but I’m gonna say “and Freeman drives an another one!” and post one of these pictures for every RBI he notches this season.
