Alia Bhatt is a self-confessed cat-lover and has furry pets who go by the names of Sheba and Edward Bhatt.

Alia has always been an animal lover and encourages everyone around her to rescue, shelter, volunteer and pledge. The birthday girl says that her love for the four-legged creatures began early. Her sister, Shaheen Bhatt would always bring home stray cats. That’s where Alia learnt to appreciate furry pets in her natural environment.

Cat-mom Alia admits that her cats always rule her house. “I’m always at their beck and call,” she had said in an interview with Hindustan Times. And Edward Bhatt is an adorable white fur ball of cuteness and occupies almost half her Instagram posts. And Alia dotingly calls Edward “her son”.

“I love to show him off. I’m super personal with my social media accounts, especially Instagram, so I love showing people how cute he is. I mean, look how cute! My friends say I’m a little crazy as at times I actually just sit and keep looking at him. But that’s because I love him so much. He’s my baby, and what’s wrong with being obsessed with your own baby?”

love of my life 💙

Edward might even have contributed to that 20 million followers on Instagram that the actor celebrated in January 2018.

Alia believes that one’s pet picks up on the energy of its owner, and that’s how Edward is too. She says her cat is playful and energetic because that’s her personality as well. Alia is not an introvert, she says.

But the ‘cat-lady’ admits she would also love to have a dog someday. But dogs require more care and attention and Alia thinks that due to the nature of her work, she cannot take care of them.

Alia Bhatt’s love and adoration for felines is defined in her Instagram posts. Keep spreading the love for animals, Alia!
