Arlington Pet of the Week: Luna

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Luna, a cat with so much fur, her owners “could comb enough off her to make felted finger puppets.”

Here’s what her owner, Talia had to say about her furry feline:

This is Luna. She is a 5-year-old cat with the playfulness of a kitten. We got Luna when she was 2 years old. She is completely white and long-haired and has green eyes. We believe she is a Turkish Van. We adopted Luna from a woman who already had other cats and dogs which made Luna very unhappy.

She loves chasing hair ties and pom-poms, licking our toes and bird watching. She also loves just being around people and listening to the family playing the piano. Luna also loves to clean herself. She may be an indoor cat but she is obsessed with grooming and is always happy to be brushed and petted. Luna has so much fur, we could comb enough off her to make felted finger puppets.

Luna loves her new home and is truly a wonderfully happy cat.
