Former stray on cat food label

Asia-Veau, who lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA with her owner, Margaret Karpen, is the cat pictured on  Purina Friskies' new senior-formula canned food , as the face of Friskies' new line, according to an  article  by the  Milwaukee Journal Sentinel .

"Asia was a street cat I brought home," Karpen said.

Karpen submitted Asia's photo to animal talent scout Bill Casey of  Animal Talent of Chicago , and it turned out that this cat had the look Purina had been searching for.

"Asia is the perfect example of a senior Friskies cat," said Purina spokeswoman Julie Kahn. "She's vital, curious and adventurous. True friskiness isn't a matter of age. It comes from within, and Asia shows this at her playful, frisky best."
