18-year-old Australian-born singer Katja Glieson has quickly been taking over North America with her recent single, Look At Us, which has been climbing the music charts with its pop-friendly sound. But behind every star is a secret weapon, and we here at Animal Wellness just found out hers: Kestra, Katja’s White Samoyed!
Not only is Katja a star, but her dog Kestra has also starred in her own Farmers Pet Insurance TV commercials and has a massive social media following of her own too.
We sat down with Katja to learn more about her career, love of animals, her thoughts on Cats vs. Dogs, the upcoming Dolphocalypse, and her white fluffy secret weapon Kestra…
AW: Explain to us what you love most about animals.
AW: Did you grow up with any pets?
AW: Tell us about your dog — AKA your ‘secret weapon’.
AW: Why did you choose to have a dog over a cat?
KG: I find the love of a dog is so unconditional. I can get home from the most crazy, busy stressful day, or come home from the high of performing a live show, and she gives me this constant love and loyalty. She always seems to know my emotions. Cats are a little more don’t speak unless you are spoken to kinda animals.
