The singers' pet has a tough time trying to reach her food

Perrie Edwards felt quite sorry for her and Zayn Malik‘s cat Prada earlier this week.

The Little Mix singer, 20, shared a cute Instagram video of the fluffy animal trying to jump up onto a kitchen surface where her dinner was – but upsettingly, she failed every time.

Perrie‘s older brother Jonnie had put the food out of reach and could be heard laughing in the background, causing the pretty blonde to give him a telling off.

‘Leave my brother to baby sit the animals and this is what happens #PoorPrada #SheCantJump #NastyJonnie,’ Perrie captioned the short clip.

Jonnie didn’t seem too bothered by Perrie‘s name-calling, later Tweeting: ‘In my defence, she got up in the end!’

One Direction‘s Zayn, 21, and Perrie – who got engaged in August 2013 – are also parents to dog Hatchi and introduced fans to Prada last November.

Perrie dotes on her pets and often shares photos and videos of them online, including a film of herself cuddling adorable Hatchi at the weekend.

‘See the difference… Prada likes to be whiny! Hatchi is a little darling! 😉 ,’ said Perrie.
