Arlington Pet of the Week: Chip & Queso

This week two kittens are Arlington’s Pet of the Week: Chip and Queso.

Here is what the feline brothers’ owner has to say about their new lives in Arlington:

Chip, a grey tabby, and Queso, an orange tabby, are 8 months old and are, in fact, brothers…though you wouldn’t guess it by the looks of them. Rescued by City Kitties from a rural farm in West Virginia, they now enjoy the urban life in Clarendon.

Chip’s hobbies including eating, chasing Queso, and darting into his home away from home, the common area hallway, each and every time the front door opens. He has an affinity for the refrigerator and will eagerly jump inside it, given the opportunity. Of the two brothers, he is the more vocal, and will make it known when he is ready for his human servants to feed him.

Queso excels at playing with cat coils, his favorite toys. He owns approximately 50 of them, 45 or so of which are under the sofa at any given time. He is mesmerized by water and enjoys paw bathing in the sink. If he’s not relaxing on his personalized blankie, you can probably find him nestled in a cardboard box or hanging out inside an IKEA bag, his other favorite toy.

To enjoy Chip and Queso’s daily antics, follow them on Instagram at @chipandquesokitties.
