Arlington Pet of the Week: Etta

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Etta, a Persian rescue cat who lives with her rescue brother and sister. Here is what her owner, Joni, had to say about her:

Good Morning My Fellow Arlingtonians! As you can see, I am enjoying a glorious, sunny afternoon on the porch with mom and dad. I found my parents — although they like to say they found me — at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter and I was quite the mess! My previous owner passed away and her heirs didn’t want me because I was not a “show quality” Persian. But one glorious day, I knew I found my forever caregivers. They came and went but voila, two days later, I packed up and off we went to my forever palace! First thing’s first, a trip to the vet for a “well baby check-up” and then a much needed trip to the groomers to get rid of my matted fur and raccoon eyes. Persians require a lot of grooming which includes a daily eye cleansing and brushing but as you can see, I am sporting my Lion Cut! I live with my brother Nelson and sister Isabella (they are rescues as well) whom I chase around and frolic with… I also love to test out my dads gourmet cooking and enjoy learning about the stock market each morning.
