Reston, VA

Meet this week’s Reston Pet of the Week, Cleo. She is a blue New Jersey Wooly rabbit who has political experience and is also a patron of the arts.

Here is what owner Tracie has to say about her:

Cleo has finely crimped angora fur, which can be used for spinning. She is a friendly, athletic, accomplished rabbit who enjoys her morning hop in the backyard and loves all fruits and vegetables except cantaloupe.

She represented her species on Capitol Hill supporting Rep. James Moran’s (D-Va.) “Humane Cosmetics” bill against animal testing and serves as a model and muse for her artist owner.

Cleo is often found with Tracie Griffith Tso in her Lake Anne workshop, where she makes and paints pottery, often with rabbits. Cleo travels to the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, where she meets and greets customers in-studio.
