Arlington Pet of the Week: Bo and Lane

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet(s) of the Week are Bo and Lane, two brothers rescued from under a bush in Pennsylvania.

Here’s what owners Matt and Liz had to say about their sibling pets:

Bowman (Bo) and Lane were found by Matt hiding under a bush alongside the road in middle-of-nowhere Pennsylvania. They were only 2-3 weeks old. Since being rescued that day, they have lived the posh, North Arlington lifestyle for nearly 4 years.

Bo has a sleek, grey coat and wing-tipped ears. He is a handsome devil, yet a total mama’s boy, drama king who thinks he is still a kitten. His favorite activities include pouncing on moving objects, leaping to tall heights, chewing on things he’s not supposed to, and meowing when people raise their voices. He also has a bottomless pit for a stomach and is not afraid to head-butt his parents while they are sleeping to let them know he’s hungry!

Lane has white, tuxedo fur on his chest and tummy that is softer than a cloud. He is constantly purring in between his inquisitive meows. Despite his sweet disposition, the hunter of the family also likes to leave gifts, whether a toy mouse or balled up socks, on the bedroom floor every morning in exchange for his breakfast. Other hobbies include running into the hallway to greet strangers, hiding from the vacuum cleaner, and beating up his brother when mom and dad aren’t home.

Each cat has his respective spot on the couch for watching “Law & Order: SVU” or the current season of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge, Lane with mom and Bo with dad. And when it’s time for bed, they switch and Bo sleeps under mom’s arm while Lane keeps dad’s feet warm. It’s times like these that Matt and Liz wonder if they truly adopted these furry gentlemen or if it was the other way around!
