Arlington Pet of the Week: Schrodinger

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Schrodinger, a Korat cat from Pentagon City who loves tuna.

Here’s what Schrodinger’s owner, Adam, had to say about her:

Schrodinger is a Korat in Pentagon City that was born way back in 2002.

Schrodinger is obviously named after the quantum physics thought experiment in which a cat is placed in a box with some sort of poison. Until the box is opened, when it is discovered that the cat is either alive or dead, the cat is considered both alive and dead simultaneously. Neither Schrodinger nor her owner still have any idea what that means.

Despite her advancing age, Schrodinger is still spry and loves playing with our other two cats. She also has an unhealthy obsession with tuna and whenever she hears the can opener, the alarm sound from Kill Bill goes off in her head and she goes berserk. Other favorite activities include lying on her Washington Football Team blanket, providing her owner with hairballs, drooling when happy, and looking at things.
