Arlington Pet of the Week: Stormy

Our new pet of the week is 6-year old cat Stormy who loves posing for pictures so much her owner thinks she should run for office.

Here’s what Stormy’s owner Paola said the feline thinks of her life in Arlington:

Hello, my name is Stormy! I’m a 6-year-old cat and the sassiest and friendliest lady feline you’ll ever meet. I’m originally from D.C., where my cat mom adopted my sister and I from a shelter at just eight weeks. We recently moved to Rosslyn from D.C. and I just love it here! There are so many trees around us and birds (my favorite are Cardinals!)! I especially like to chase them around the apartment from window-to-window! Although my cat parents travel overseas a lot, they make sure I’m surrounded by hoomans… for you see, I’m one social cat! I don’t like being alone too long and when we have company, I immediately make friends with everyone invited. My favorite place to take naps is on my cat dad’s chest, or at night, on my cat mom’s head. I like sitting on my kitty bed and also like to take long naps outside on the balcony. My cat mom enjoys taking pictures of me, and I enjoy it too, so much so that I have my own hashtag! #Stormyforcatpresident
