What you'll do
You’ll spend an unforgettable day with Nala on the job in the kitchen, where she helps her family whip up her favorite foods. Upon arriving at our manufacturing center in Visalia, California, you’ll be greeted by Nala. After getting your initial fix of her cuteness, your exclusive tour of the Love, Nala brand will begin. You’ll take a behind-the-scenes tour of how Nala’s food is made and you’ll get to see every step of the process. Our tour will conclude with an adorable sampling of Nala’s food by none other than Nala herself! She’ll sit down to a tasting menu of her latest creations and her moms will tell you everything you’ve ever wanted to know about her. Then you’ll get to enjoy some snacks of your own while you hang out with this feline queen and take LOTS of photos. You’ll head home with a Nala gift bag and some of Nala’s special food to treat the #1 kitty in your life.

Pookie And Shannon
Hi! We’re Pookie and Shannon, the moms of Nala, the most famous cat on Instagram! Nala is a 9-year-old Siamese tabby mix, and her journey to stardom began when she was rescued from an animal shelter at 5 months old. We live in Southern California with our full house of kids and animals. We’re very passionate about animal rescue and, because we have so many loving fans, we know that we have a tremendous platform to help create change. That’s why we created Love, Nala, a nutritious food brand. We want to give back to other pet parents and share love with generations of animals to come!
