Arlington, VA

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Pepper, who loves to knock things over.

Pepper has never met a person she doesn’t like — and doesn’t want to cuddle with. This little cat has lots of energy for running laps, too. Here’s what Pepper has to say for herself.

Hi, my name is Pepper! I was named after smart, powerful babe Pepper Potts (who happens to date Iron Man). 

I love eating cottage cheese and knocking over any drinks I come across. I also enjoy running outside whenever the door opens and doing laps in the apartment hallway. I haven’t quite realized what scratching posts are for yet, but I do like to stretch my claws on a nice pair of jeans or the ottoman! 

So far, I’ve never met a human I didn’t like. I am very soft and love to snuggle with you while you watch TV. I follow my human through the house and help her do anything and everything. If she’s home, I’m hardly ever more than an arm’s length away.

Want your pet to be considered for the Arlington Pet of the [email protected] a 2-3 paragraph bio and at least 3-4 horizontally-oriented photos of your pet.
