Arlington Pet of the Week: Ludo

Meet the Arlington Pet of the Week, Ludo, a 4-year-old feline who has a crooked ear that adds to his charm.

Here is what Ludo’s owner, Beth, had to say about his life here in Arlington:

Ludo is a 4-year old gray domestic medium hair who may also be part Nebelung. He was named after the character “Ludo” in the movie Labyrinth because of his docile nature and his love of friendship. Ludo lived on the rough streets of rural VA before he was rescued by City Kitties, and now lives a calm life in retirement with his human in Ballston. His favorite activities include eating, sleeping on the floor, playing with his pink fish toy, and hanging out next to his human.

He loves to play with his pink fish toy more than anything, especially when his human uses the pole to whip the toy around so he can chase it. When he wants to play, he’ll sit in front of the closet where all the toys are kept and stare longingly at it. Sometimes, when he catches the pink toy, he’ll take it over to his favorite spot– next to the closet– and meow so you can be proud of the great job he did.

Ludo has a permanently crooked ear, but he doesn’t let it slow him down. In fact, it adds to his charm– and boy does he have a lot of charm. He enchants all the vets he meets, and has a knack for making the ladies fall to their knees (so they can pet him of course). With his silky fur and his chill demeanor, he is definitely a special guy!
