Jacqueline Fernandez is a Sri Lankan actress and a former model. She is a past winner of the Miss Universe Sri Lanka pageant (2006). She mainly works in Hindi films and debuted in 2009 in the Bollywood movie, Aladin, going on to establish a successful career in the industry.
THERE ARE MORE CELEBRITIES AND THEIR CATS STORIES AT THE BASE OF THE PAGE.
Like all high-profile, attractive female celebrities she has an Instagram account (50m followers), and a wonderful apartment in Mumbai, India with a huge balcony which is where you see her meditating in the photograph below with one of her four cats in the background. My guess is that this particular beauty is a Bengal, judging by the high contrast coat markings which look like rosettes in cat fancy language. This means hollowed-out spots, basically. A beautiful cat.
Fernandez is an animal lover, which is great. The more animal loving celebrities there are in the world the better for animals. Of course, her cats are members of her family. It is nice to see her meditating. She says on her Instagram page captioning this photograph that “Breathwork (pranayams) are important especially now for our physical and mental well-being. Praying for everyone during these difficult times. Link in my bio for yoga and meditation classes online. Stay safe everyone”. Of course she is referring to the pandemic. The photo was taken well before the massive surge in infections which has been so comprehensively reported on news media. I wonder if she has got out of India at this time. She’d be wise to.
Her Bengal cat in the background makes a nice calming addition to her meditation. You must admit that having a cat around you when you’re meditating works well. Jacqueline Fernandez lives, I am told, with four companion cats: Yoda, Loki, Miumiu and Xyza.
In addition to the Bengal (believed) that I mention above, she also has a pointed Persian cat whose name is Yoda. These are called Himalayan cats. The Himalayan that she lives with is a flat-based, contemporary example of the breed. They are called “punch-face” Persian cats in India.
In that vein she also lives with a white contemporary Persian (name: Loki or Xyza) who is suffering as they all are with tear duct overflow due to distorted tear ducts arising from the extreme selective breeding. She should clean the stains before getting the camera out. Angels’ Eyes on Amazon is the solution used by the experts. I am still trying to find out some info about the fourth cat. I think he/she is a Ragdoll (seal point) but I am unsure.
