This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Coco Abrams, a rescue cat that’s a champion eater, although she frequent wins eating contests “unopposed.”
Here’s what owner Hannah and mother Tamar had to say about Coco:
Coco is an 8-year-old adopted cat living in the Jamestown Elementary School area. Although she is single, Coco has managed to befriend many of the neighboring cats and is very social. She is often seen rolling around and doing strange poses. Her favorite hobby is eating and begging for more food after she’s done. She is a competitive eater and has won countless food-eating competitions, although she generally goes unopposed.
When not eating or rolling around, Coco can be found sleeping in strange positions or cuddled up with her mother. Her favorite TV channel is the Food Network and she is particularly a big fan of Gordon Ramsey. She’s very protective of her space and family and likes to exert her power over other cats, dogs, and chipmunks. She loves the outdoors and likes to lounge around outside soaking up the sun.
Coco loves to make new friends and is constantly talking to anybody who will listen (even if they aren’t listening, she will loudly talk to them). It’s Coco’s dream to one day own a cat food-based restaurant where she will hire cooks, but be the sole manager and customer.
