Arlington Pet of the Week: Sierra

Arlington’s newest pet of the week is chatty cat Sierra.

Here’s what her owner, Manu, said Sierra had to say:

My name is Sierra. My mom, Manu, was a foster mom for a local rescue for 3+ years and I am proud to say I am the first kitty she couldn’t give back! Some people say we look alike. I am an orange tabby and my mom has orange hair too (though she claims it’s red).

I am a little over 1 year and now that I’m settled in my forever home in Arlington, I love to snuggle with mom and play. I love when her boyfriend (I call him cat daddy Sean) comes to visit, because he will get out this little laser thingy… one day I’ll catch this darn dot!

I have toys all over our little studio. When mom cleans them up, I find them and scatter them tastefully across the room. I am just making sure people know this is MY home!  My favorite thing to do is to hide all my little toy mice everywhere! Mom finds them in bed, the hamper, under the stove — great fun!

I talk a lot and make sure everyone knows how my day has been. I am very good about not leaving the apartment when the front door is open. Usually that’s when my mom talks German to me (she told me that’s where she is from) and I know I better turn around or I won’t get treats filled in my small treat ball — not going to jeopardize getting treats!!
