Arlington Pet of the Week: Kona

Say “hi” to Kona, Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week. Kona is a 5-year-old rescue who enjoys napping on shoes and eating tuna paste.

Here’s what Kona had to say about her life in Arlington:

My name is Kona, and I’ve lived in Arlington for over four years now! My humans adopted me from the Prince William County Animal Shelter back in 2016. I wasn’t even a year old, and I had been found as a stray in the woods. Lucky for my humans, they found me on Petfinder, and I impressed them with my beautiful eyes and sweet purrsonality.

In order to earn my kibble around this place, I hold various jobs. I am the resident bug hunter, the welcome committee, inspector of all things, head bathroom buddy, fur clothing maker and, most recently, I have been promoted to Chief Supurrvisor. The humans decided they wanted me to manage them and started working from home in March. As a result, I monitor their daily activity and let them know when their work is completed by sitting on top of their computers.

In my free time, I enjoy playing hide-and-seek in my tunnel, napping on shoes, eating tuna paste and cuddling with my humans. They learned early on that I won’t tolerate being separated from them, so now we have an open-door policy at home (my supurrvisor skills hard at work!).

I might appear cool and confident, but I actually get a bit anxious when I smell or see other animals in real life. Luckily, I have my online cat furriends to keep me social! If any other cats on Instagram want to hang out for the Friday Night Box Pawty, feel free to join me @kona.kitty. And don’t forget, every day is Caturday when you’re a cat!
