Arlington Pet of the Week: Milly

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Milly, a cat who loves a good treat and a good snuggle.

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

Milly came from a local animal shelter last year where she was promptly diagnosed with terminal mammary cancer at age 6. Her parents were looking for a hospice cat and knew they needed to meet her. It was love at first sight, but, to be fair, Milly absolutely loves everyone she meets right away. No loyalty with this girl, she’ll snuggle the vet as she’s getting shots and complete strangers alike.

Maybe her affectionate nature earned her a lot of human treats as a stray because Milly loves a decadent snack; pizza crust, Chinese food (fried rice!), avocado, and all baked goods. She keeps her trim figure by full speed sprinting around her apartment and playing like a kitten – including knocking over her toy bucket on a weekly basis to display her favorites throughout the apartment. After a long day she loves to curl up on the couch or cozy up under the covers. Though her time is limited, Milly is spending it doted on and adored in Arlington!
