Arlington Pet of the Week: MC Hammer

Dogma Bakery

Meet MC Hammer, a one of a kind Siberian who is certainly no “scaredy cat.”

Here’s what his owner had to say about him:

MC Hammer is a full breed Siberian cat, but he has dog-like personality. He’s energetic, agile (he can almost fly), extremely intelligent and kind to new people. I am allergic to cats, however Siberians are known to have low feline protein in their saliva and luckily, I was paired with MC Hammer.

His birthday is November 11, 2011 so he is a year and half old. Most people say his weight at 15 lbs is too much, however the breeder assured me that MC Hammer is still growing and will not stop growing until he is five years old. Siberian cats can weigh 20 to 25 pounds once they stop growing! He is currently on a primal diet, and eats better than I do.

He loves jumping in the shower every morning and he is not afraid. He loves visitors, people and especially the food-givers. He loves going outside on his pet stroller and getting fresh air. He has been on the Bluemont Trail in conjunction to the W&OD Trail, and on Custis Trail as well. He also likes stalking people on top of his two cat trees that reach our 8 foot ceilings, or jumping on his specially-made cat wall shelves. He loves waking up his mom at 3 a.m. every morning by either screaming in my ear, or giving sandpaper kisses on my lips, then proceeding to pounce on my face or walking all over me.

MC Hammer recently got a new brother and they are currently forming a bromance, however the new kitten does not stay still when they are together. The story will continue…
