Arlington Pet of the Week: Jasmine

Dogma Bakery

Our Arlington Pet of the Week this week is Jasmine, a 7-year-old cat who’s awaiting adoption at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.

More information about Jasmine can be found here. From the AWLA’s write-up:

Jasmine is quite a sweetheart! She was brought to us due to her owners allergies, and she wasn’t happy about it one bit! The shelter is a stressful environment for most cats, and especially for Jasmine. She is very frightened of the other cats and all the commotion really stresses her out. Jasmine is cautious of new people and doesn’t trust them right away, though once you’ve earned her trust she’ll be your best friend. She loves head rubs and chin scratches and will show her appreciation with a good purr!

Once Jasmine is used to you she will sweetly meow for your attention and greet you with a brush against you legs. Jasmine also likes to play with all kinds of toys and, according to her previous owner, she will even play a game of fetch with you! Jasmine also loves laser pointers and, baffled by that pesky red dot, could chase them for hours. It takes Jasmine some time to adjust to new environments and she would benefit from a slow introduction to her new home. Because Jasmine is wary of the other animals at the shelter, she would prefer to be your only pet. Sudden movements and loud noises are scary for her, so she would do best in a home with older children who are familiar with cats. Come visit this sweet, smart, and spunky gal and give her a chance to to settle in your heart, and perhaps your home too.

The Arlington Pet of the Week is sponsored by Dogma Bakery, which has locations at The Village at Shirlington (2772 S. Arlington Mill Drive) and the Lee Harrison Shopping Center (2445 N. Harrison Street).

Dogma selects one shelter pet per month to be featured as the Pet of the Week.

“Beginning on the day we first opened, Dogma Dog Bakery encouraged people to consider adopting or fostering dogs and cats,” said owner Sheila Raebel. “Every month, we will work with our local shelters, and rescue groups to feature a pet in need. Sometimes, some adoptable pets are just overlooked for no special reason, and they need a little more exposure to find the right home.”

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.

“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
