Arlington Pet of the Week: Mini

Meet the new Arlington Pet of the Week, Mini, a 9 year old Calico who enjoys sitting in the sun.

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

Mini’s been an Arlington resident since 2012, after being adopted from Washington Animal Rescue League during an adopt-a-thon event that stressed out her soon-to-be human Dad. After narrowing choices to 2-3 of her shelter-mates, Mini was chosen–at least in part–because he couldn’t bear to continue looking at the many cats that needed a home. After settling in to the Commonwealth, she spent a few months in Ballston before moving to a deluxe apartment in the sky in Clarendon.

Mini is a nine-year old Calico who loves her humans and any other humans hands that visit. Additional loves include acting like a sundial by laying in sun spots as they move across the floor every day; reminding her humans of the importance of daily treats; hanging out on the balcony with her faux furry buddies; “helping” her humans while they work; watching sports matches; and visiting in the hallway with neighbors and former Pets of the Week Chip and Queso. She also has the broad feline interests of sitting in boxes, destroying leather furniture (an expensive lesson for her humans), and insisting on laying in any suitcase that is ever opened.  Ever.

While Mini’s favorite humans live with her (presumably), she has many friends across the country who ask about her welfare, request photos, or set up Zoom/FaceTime calls with her humans clearly to only see her. She is well cared for and loved. Mini but mighty.
