Nautilus Nacre

“Now this is living the life of Riley.”

The day his mom died, Parlanath aka Pearl found a cat, whom he named Riley.
As Riley always acted like his mother and absorbed his attention, Parlanath was certain that Riley was his own mother's parting gift for him.
He showered her with lots of love and care.

The government was exterminating all the stray animals in the city.
The animals that didn't have any ownership identification were not safe.
Parlanath knew he had to put a neck-band or badge around Riley to protect her.

Parlanath immediately took his prized possession- an empty Nautilus hemishell with the Nacre also known as the mother of pearl.
Parlanath, who was called Pearl, felt nice that Riley now had the official 'Mother of Pearl' band.

Do you have any prized possessions that you would be glad to gift to a loved one? Do share in the comments below.
