Arlington Pet of the Week: West

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is West, a 5-year-old cat who was found in an abandoned cabin in West Virginia and enjoys sitting on laptops.

Here’s what her owner, Marilyn, had to say:

Hi! I’m West, a 5 year old lovable cat. My family found me 3 years ago in an abandoned cabin in West Virginia. They took me home and I’m now officially their pet. I live with Angie, Brinton, Marilyn, Mark, Lucas, and a puppy, Sierra. I don’t like Sierra because she takes attention away from me. Even though I am mean to her, she still loves me.

If you ever need your laptop to be sit on, I’m your cat. My family doesn’t like me to sit on theirs because I delete all of their files. I also enjoy destroying earbuds and pencils. At night I cuddle with my mom, but if she moves, I bite her. If you’re looking for me I’m usually in my dad’s sock drawer, on top of the printer, or staring down the dog. Even though I don’t have claws I can still kill mice and chipmunks.

I can be a bit of a pain sometimes, but my family loves me dearly. Without me, they would be missing out on one amazing cat.
