“We named her Nathan at first as a joke before we got her,” Melissa Pietrobuono, Nathan’s mom, told The Dodo. “Nathan is a character from a show my partner and I have watched called ‘Angry Boys.’ But once we brought her home, we actually quite liked the name and it stuck, despite not really being a girl’s name. It still makes us laugh sometimes and we can't imagine her being named anything else.”
From the moment Nathan arrived in her new home, she was absolutely obsessed with her parents, and started following them everywhere they went. Whether they’re watching TV, trying to finish up dinner or sleeping soundly, Nathan is always right there next to them, eager to do whatever they’re doing, as long as she can be near them.
