Pets of the Week: Gus and Lola

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pets of the Week are Gus and Lola, cats who love watching animals out of the front and back doors.

Here’s what Gus and Lola’s owner, Kristy, had to say about them:

Gus and Lola are an eight year old bonded brother-sister pair. They are leap kitties born on February 29, 2008, so they really have had only two birthdays.

We are spoiled rotten kitties who were adopted to Arlington from Westminster, MD. Rumor has it that we may have gotten sick on our original car ride to our new house, all over our then new dad’s new car. But we were quickly forgiven and then took over our house. We still allow our humans to use some of the space some of the time.

Our favorite past time is watching birds, chipmunks and squirrels out of our front and back doors. We have only ever been outside once by mistake and we only made it about 3 feet before we got scared and came back inside, much to the relief of our owners. Speaking of scared, one time we met a mouse inside of the house face-to-face but we were petrified by our new friend. Luckily, our people caught it and set it free outside before it could hurt us.

We’re so happy to have found a great home in Arlington, although we’re not really sure where that is because the only place we ever go is to the vets down the street and we cry like babies the whole ride there. Maybe one day our parents will buy us a big new house to explore but until then, we’re happy ruling over our little townhouse castle.

Want your pet to be considered for the Arlington Pet of the Week? Email [email protected] with a 2-3 paragraph bio and at least 3-4 horizontally-oriented photos of your pet. Please don’t send vertical photos, they don’t fit in our photo galleries!
