Prakriti Nautiyal has always been an animal-lover, but the connection that she feels with her pet cat is something different. The actress, who is currently playing the role of Ramaiya in Barrister Babu, says, “I have always loved animals, regardless of their species. I was lucky enough to adopt a baby goat and dog as a teen. But it was my baby Newton, who made me fall in love with cats,” she says.
She adds “When I shifted to Mumbai to start working in the industry, I rarely got time to go back home, as it usually is for anyone who starts living independently. It was then that I found Newton. I rescued and adopted him. It gave me a sense of what motherhood was like. I became more responsible and homebound. No matter how long my workday was or how exhausted I was, I always had love waiting by the door to welcome me back home.”
