Arlington Pet of the Week: Nelson

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Nelson, a cat who lives in Douglas Park.

Here is what he had to say about his life so far:

I live in Douglas Park Arlington with my mom Joni and dad Tom. Someone found me on the streets of Arlington and dropped me off at the animal shelter in Arlington when I was just 6 weeks old and it wasn’t long before I found my “forever home.”

I live with my cat sisters, Etta and Isabella Rose and enjoy chasing stuffed mice and enjoying a little birdwatching from our dining room.

I am also and avid gardener and love shopping days at Costco because there is sure to be a new “cardboard condo” for us to play in.
