Adoptable Pet of the Week: Alex

Give a warm welcome to the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week, Alex! This 5-year-old girl loves bird watching and is looking for a forever home.

Alex is currently available for adoption through Homeward Trails Animal Rescue.

Her foster family had a few things to say about Alex:

Cuddle aficionado? Check! Champion bird watcher? Check! Cutest big rabbit ears this side of the Mississippi? Check! Alex is #1 on every count.

Alex has stolen her foster family’s hearts with her sweet meows, gorgeous face and loving demeanor. She loves her people more than anything and is happy to spend her days hanging out in her bed by your desk while you work from home. Other hobbies include watching Cat TV on YouTube, mealtimes (and snack-times), and playing with her wand toy. She is known to fall asleep to her foster mom singing to her at night before bedtime.

At 5 years old, Alex knows what she is about and what she wants. This girl is ready for a quiet life in a dog-free home with some adult (older teenagers OK) pals that she can love on. She would be happy to have a friendly cat pal, too!

Life can be scary for a little cat, but Alex is hoping to find her forever family that knows what it is like to live with anxiety and are ready to open their homes and hearts to her.

Are you and Alex a match? Check out her complete profile to learn more about the adoption process!

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.

“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
