This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Isabella Rose, better known as Bella, a cat who’s absolutely thrilled to have earned the title.
Bella is a Himalayan by breed and clearly a party animal by night. Here’s what she had to say about herself, as translated by cat mom Joni.
My name is Isabella Rose and although I might appear to be a really cute and innocent “Himmie” I am anything but. My days are spent chasing my brother Nelson around and hiding behind corners ready to jump out at my unsuspecting sister Etta Vera.
I come from very humble origins, for you see I am a rescue from Prince William County. I spent the first half of my life in an icky cage in a basement until I found my forever home. Now my life is filled with being a very happy cat and not taking one day for granted. Bless the rescue people who found me a wonderful home.
