Arlington Pet of the Week: Chandler Bing

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is a kitten who goes by Chandler Bing. Could he be any cuter?

Here’s what owner, Rachel, had to say about her friendly cat:

In the spirit of the season (and full disclosure), my name is Chandler Bing and I have three New Year’s Resolutions for 2015: to lose weight, finally catch my own tail, and become Instafamous (follow me at Chandler.Bing.The.Cat)

Let me tell you a bit about myself: I was born on June 27 and was rescued from the Animal Welfare League of Arlington on Sept. 20 by this beautiful young lady named Rachel Marrion. It truly was love at first sight.

More importantly, I enjoy going for long walks from the kitchen to the bedroom and back. I enjoy hanging out in the sink, getting my paws wet, and running around the house like Tom Cruise from Risky Business. But my favorite thing to do is to watch my namesake on TV; he’s almost as funny and cute as I am (perhaps my resolution should be to be more humble?)

Finally, I would like to take some time to thank those people most special to me. First and foremost, God, for keeping those shadows just the right distance away from me. To my Aunt Kate, for seeing my full potential and pushing me to go for this. And lastly, to my owner, Rachel. She is a teacher, and without the two-week break over the holidays, none of this would be possible. Thank you.
