Arlington Pet of the Week: Puppy

This week a year-and-half-old kitten named Puppy is the Arlington Pet of the Week.

Here’s owner Zach’s biography of this CatDog’s journey to his home:

In my first seven months after birth, I had four different owners until I was adopted by my current pawrents. Because of this, I am very shy in front of strangers, but very chill when my pawrents keeping me company.

Whenever they are watching a movie, I like to snuggle with them on sofa. I like to sleep in my pawrent’s closest, and waking them up in the morning by jumping on the bed (just like a puppy!). I also enjoy my pawrents giving me a massage.
