Arlington Pet of the Week: Jazzy the Cat

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Jazzy, a cat who’s from the heartland, rocks some distinguished white hair and who has her sights set on the (small, furry) white house.

Here’s Jazzy’s stump speech, written by her campaign manager (and owner), Stacey.

Hello, my fellow Americans! My name is Jazzy. I’m originally from Kansas City and am named after the Jazz music district where I was found as a kitten. My family moved to Arlington last year so I could begin my political career. My dad also took a promotion to his DC office – helpful coincidence!

My hobbies include bird watching out our patio door, chasing the elusive red laser and trying to eat cheese off my parents’ plates. I also work really hard. My most frequent tasks include waking my parents before their alarms go off, running around my mom’s feet when she does workout DVDs, and patrolling the hallway to make sure all is well in our apartment building. All that work requires frequent naps, as well. My scientific studies determined the best sleep can be found in a basket of clean laundry!

Don’t let this fluffy face fool you – I can put my paw down when necessary. I’m the perfect combination of compassion and cattitude that is needed in a leader. You can learn more about my campaign and adventures on social media. I look forward to being your purrresident. Vote Jazzy! #jazzy2016
