This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is a feline friend. Meet Betty Lou, who comes to Reston from far away. Here is what her owner, Jennifer, has to say:
Betty Lou was rescued from the streets of New Delhi, India by my friend and colleague Leslie, who fostered her for the first two months of her life. Betty Lou was a tiny kitten and my two older cats helped show her the ways of a house cat.
When I returned to Northern Virginia, Betty Lou was thrilled to watch wildlife and look over the Reston woods from my windows. In fact, in 2013 Betty Lou used her finely tuned hunting skills to protect my home from unwelcome wildlife that had mistakenly entered the premises.
Betty Lou’s favorite beverage is tea. She will drink tea out of a cup if given an opportunity! She is also a serious catnip junkie. Her favorite past times include playing with toys and my other cats, napping on the cat tree, and patrolling my home for interlopers.
