Arlington Pet of the Week: Charlie

Meet Charlie, a 7 year old cat who loves laying in the sun and watching birds from the window.

Here is what Charlie’s owner had to say about her life here in Arlington:

Charlie, also known as Princess Moo-stache, filled the void in my life nearly 7 years ago.  She was adopted from Lost Dog & Cat Rescue when she was 8 months old.  Since then, she has gotten to experience life as a Boston kitty, where she saw record snowfall in the February of 2015 (108.6 inches total!).  Charlie then moved to Potomac, where she thought about being a “Real Housecat of Potomac”.

However, it wasn’t until she returned to Arlington when she really came to embrace life as a Princess.  She spends her days lounging in the sun and telling the wayward bird how ferocious she would be if there wasn’t glass in the way.  And when the clouds roll in, Charlie will knock over her toy bin to find entertainment.

Having just celebrated her 7th birthday, Charlie can confirm that she still has many more birds to stalk (from the window) and sunshine to soak up.  And worry not, she knows that winter doesn’t mean fewer sunlight hours, but the return of the electric blanket!
