Nalla pet of the week

Nalla is 21 years old but you wouldn’t know based on her beauty, grace, and how high she can still jump! She is even called the Julie Andrews of cats.

Her secret to living long is staying hydrated, eating Meow Mix for the first 19 years then changing to Fancy Feast, and making sure all the dogs in the house know she’s the boss.

Nalla is also currently single and taking applications if you know of any male cats interested.

We’re huge pet lovers at The Assist and want to feature a pet each week — fill out this form for your fur baby to be featured!
