Arlington Pet of the Week: Napoleon

Dogma Bakery

Our latest Arlington Pet of the Week is Napoleon, a former stray cat who now is living it up in Lyon Village.

Here’s what Stephanie and her fiance, Sean, had to say about Napoleon and his curious organizational habits.

Meet Napoleon! A former stray, he wandered into our lives last summer as an underweight, flea-ridden kitten when he began making frequent appearances in my family’s backyard. After he was taken to a veterinarian for treatment and given some TLC, he relocated permanently to his home in Lyon Village.

Since Napoleon was a stray when he was adopted, we don’t know much about his background. We do know that his birthday is around April 20th, and we suspect that he’s part Maine Coon. His name is now ironic; he’s currently over 36-inches long, and he weighs almost 20 pounds! Napoleon is fascinated with water, and he likes to play fetch, steal wine corks and socks, and gaze out of our apartment window. He has a quirky habit of putting his belongings in one pile.

As an expert traveler, Napoleon doesn’t mind taking frequent trips to Pennsylvania to visit his rescuers. He especially enjoys playing with his cousin cats on his visits there.

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).
