Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week is Confetti, a 2 year old rescue cat who loves to sleep in the bathroom sink.
Here’s what Confetti’s owner told ARLnow about how the feline feels about life here in Arlington:
I was born outside in a barn without good food or water. Luckily, a nice Arlington cat rescuer named Lily helped me out. She took me to a foster home with other cats who had trouble. There was one, grey cat that scared me. Soon after, Lily took me and some of the other cats to a pet a shop to meet potential families to help us find our forever homes. The grey cat came along and I was scared. One little girl looked at me and saw that I was shaking. She put her hand inside the cage and pet me. It made me purr. She felt my motor and I knew that she loved me. The family took me home that very day.
When I got to my forever home, I was really scared but after a few days I was more comfortable. My belly hurt because of the bad barn water and the vet said I had giardia. My new family gave me medicine and healthy food and nursed me back to health. The name I was given is Confetti because I have lots of little spots. My new family calls me lots of new names too, like: Marbles, French Fry, Fuzz Face, FetFet and Caramel Toes. I love all my names! My favorite toy is the one that my little girl owner makes for me out of pipe cleaners. I like to play fetch up and down the stairs with her. Sometimes I like to sleep in the cool bathroom sink because it feels really good. I also like to drink glasses of water that my family leaves out, but they don’t like that so much.
I know that I am loved and cared for and I feel so lucky that there are people out there like Lily to help cats like me that need a second chance. I am only two but I feel like I’ve been with my forever family… forever!
