Meet Nala & The Fam

Meet Pookie and Shannon

September 03, 2019

Now that you’ve met Nala, we want to introduce ourselves. We are Pookie and Shannon, and we are the co-founders of Love, Nala and better known as Nala’s moms. We are usually behind the scenes letting all of our stars shine. But today, we are answering some questions that you may have about the brand and about us, so enjoy! 

Why did Nala Cat choose to make her own cat food?

We wanted to be true to our values and only recommend the tastiest and healthiest recipes for cats to help Nala and cats everywhere thrive. That is why we teamed up with Perfection Pet Foods to make something that was nutritious, safe, and affordable without compromising the quality of ingredients. 

How involved were you in the process of making Love, Nala?

We were involved in the entire process of making Love, Nala from deciding on the recipe to designing the packaging. We went on a tour of the factory to ensure all standards were met and they all exceeded expectations. We will always have our hands on Love, Nala to stay true to exactly what we set out to create. 

Why should I choose Love, Nala?

Love, Nala uses only the highest quality ingredients and the recipes are made with love in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. Our cat food recipes are super-premium, grain-free, and meat-first - designed with your cat's nutritional needs in mind. 

What pet food products are available in the Love, Nala line?

Love, Nala currently offers 3 tasty dry kibble recipes for your cats:

  • 11lb Salmon & Chickpea for your adult cat
  • 11lb Chicken & Chickpea for your adult cat
  • 7lb Chicken & Chickpea for your kitten

As well as 2 wet food recipes 

  • Grain-Free Chicken & Pumpkin Dinner in Gravy
  • Grain-Free Tuna & Salmon Dinner in Broth

What does Nala eat?

Nala enjoys eating a mix of kibble and wet food. Her favorite combination is the Grain-Free Chicken & Chickpea Recipe for grazing and Chicken & Pumpkin Dinner in Gravy for her scheduled mealtime.

Do all of the cats at your home eat the same thing or do they eat different diets? 

Every cat eats the same thing, except for Stella. She’s on a hypo-allergenic diet prescribed to her by our vet.

You call Love, Nala a community on your social accounts. Why is that? 

It all goes back to why we created the brand. We want all of our furry family members to be happy and healthy, and we wanted our community to be part of that. We will also be donating our food to charitable organizations that we have been fortunate enough to be involved in for the last few years through the Nala family. We can’t wait to share more details about that soon! Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to join our community.

What’s your day-to-day like being moms of both furry and human children, influencers/creators, and now founders of a cat food company?

Every day is special and filled with lots of playtime, cuddles, and love. Our lives are very busy, so it’s really important for us to be mindful of a balanced life. But as you can see from all of our social media accounts, we have so much fun! Being part of a large and loving pet community is so special and we hope you join our community as well.
