Arlington Pet of the Week: Kimba

This week’s Pet of the Week is Kimba, who loves chasing laser pointers and feathers.

Here’s what Kimba’s owner had to say about his life here in Arlington:

Kimba (also known as Sir Kimba of Arlington) was born in the Republic of Turkey.  Him and his litter mate, the aptly named Mr. Meowgi, bravely crossed the Ocean together to find a better life in America.

They wound up in the care of the Lost Dog and Cat Foundation, before they were taken home to Arlington by their adoptive human.  Though they are immigrants, it didn’t take them long to embrace Arlington as their home.

Kimba’s favorite activities include chasing feather toys and laser pointers, catching bugs, jumping on the television and the bookshelf, posing for selfies, and cuddling with dad, and fighting with his Mr. Meowgi for the highest spot on the cat tree.
