Arlington Pet of the Week: Cami

Our newest pet of the week is Cami who loves playing fetch while her owner is in the bathroom.

Owner Chris says the rescue cat had this to share about her new life in Arlington:

My name is Cami, or Camithy Kitten Cat XVII is what my owner calls me when I’ve been acting up. I don’t know where I was born but my first owner found me in a field in Gainesville when I was about 4 months old.

There were other kitties in the house that would bully me so I moved in with my owner’s son. Now I am the only one chasing my own tail!

I am a professional cuddler and will lay on my back until someone picks me up. Belly rubs are ok for about 30 seconds, beware after time is up! I also love playing fetch while my owner is in the bathroom, a game he calls “Potty Mouse.”
