Kitty of the North
Nootka Cedar is the newest member of our family. We adopted this beautiful, curious, playful, and loving boy from the Everett Animal Shelter. He's the perfect addition to our adventure crew.
It was time to open our hearts and home to a kitty. We decided we wanted a cat months ago, but needed to get settled and for the right situation to arise. When we saw this boy, it was love at first sight, and we have been enamored ever since.
Nootka is named for Native Americans of the Northwest and a type of Cedar tree.
Nuu-chah-nulth, also called Nootka, North American Indians who live on what are now the southwest coast of Vancouver Island, Can., and on Cape Flattery, the northwest tip of the state of Washington, U.S.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cupressus nootkatensis is a species of trees in the cypress family native to the coastal regions of northwestern North America. This species goes by many common names including: Nootka cypress, yellow cypress, Alaska cypress, Nootka cedar, yellow cedar, Alaska cedar, and Alaska yellow cedar. The specific epithet "nootkatensis" is derived from its discovery by Europeans on the lands of a First Nation of Canada, those lands of the Nuu-chah-nulth people of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, who were formerly referred to as the Nootka.
