Arlington Pet of the Week: Ford

Meet Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week, Ford, an 11 year old cat who just moved to Virginia from Maryland.

Here is what Ford had to say about his life here in Arlington since the move:

Hello humans, my name is Ford the Cat. I am 11 in your silly human years; I personally don’t believe in aging, just look at me. The simpletons at the shelter from which I was “rescued” gave me that name and my new subject Caitlin (you would say owner) decided to keep it. It’s unclear if I was named after the car or president; I believe it was just a typo of Lord the Cat.

I allowed Caitlin to move me from Maryland to Virginia during this coronavirus I keep hearing about. So far I must say I love it here; I have three enormous windows to look out (Caitlin calls it kitty TV) and for the first time I have a staircase to randomly run up and down in the middle of the night.

Those who have the privilege of knowing me best remember my charming personality, resting happy face (my humans put pictures of me online under “Ford_Isnt_Angry”) and my one big snaggletooth. Looks aren’t everything but they certainly help.

When I’m not crushing photo shoots I’m quite fond of chasing that glowing red spot that randomly appears on the walls (I’ll catch you one day!), napping in various food shapes, including “shrimp”, “loaf” and “banana” and throwing up in the car. That’ll teach Caitlin to remove the king from his castle.
