Arlington Pet of the Week: Gigi

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Gigi, a 3-year-old Bombay cat who enjoys wet food and strings of any kind.

Here is what her owner Alexandra had to say:

Gigi is a three-ish Bombay beauty who lives in Arlington, VA with her parents Frank and Alexandra. She has been a VA resident for longer than her parents and loves to show them how locals live. Gigi was adopted from Animal Welfare League of Arlington (AWLA) in September of 2016. Though barely older than a kitten herself, she had given birth to a litter of kittens prior to being adopted into the O’Donnell-Fee household. Still she has retained her kitten-like spirit and is conquering her remaining pregnancy fat by working out intensely at 3 a.m.

Gigi likes wet food in any fish flavor, strings of any kind, and her special chair in the living room. She does not like scratches on the butt or when new people neglect to greet her at the door. Her biggest dream is escaping down the hallway of the apartment floor she lives on, but she is afraid of the carpet. When she grows up, Gigi wants to be a celebrity chef mostly so she can sit around in the grocery bags.
