This week’s Pet of the week is Lacy, a kitten who was rescued from a Silver Spring shelter and now lives happily here in Arlington.
Here is what Lacy’s owner said that she has to say about her happy new life:
Kayla brought me to Arlington from a rescue shelter in Silver Spring, Maryland when I was only six weeks old. It was an exciting journey for such a young age, and I was thrilled to find my forever home. My new family showered me with love immediately, and I always want to return the favor.
I am known to give Kayla baths, just as my mom gave to me when I was a newborn kitten. It’s a sign of my affection and appreciation for all she does for me. I am also quite the talker. I am ready to greet Kayla when she gets home from work, talk to her when she wakes up in the morning, and makes sure she is aware of my presence every other time in the day. When Kayla is not home, I enjoy laying on the back of her couch in the sun and turning on the kitchen sink to play in the water. And when it’s time for bed, I like to either curl up on her feet or chest — it really just depends on the day!
I consider myself to be a fairly social cat. Kayla calls me her little furball of energy. All of Kayla’s friends give me tons of attention, and I love playing with them (except when they fool me with that darn laser pointer!). I just know wherever I am, I will always be surrounded by caring individuals who love me. I am very thankful I found such a loving home, and it is my wish for cats around the world to find humans who love them as much as Kayla loves me.
