Reston Pet of the Week: Tony

by RestonNow.com December 3, 2014 at 2:00 pm 6 Comments

Meet Tony, a Reston feline who has done a bit of traveling. Here is what his owner Jennifer has to say about him:

This is Tony, he also goes by the names Tee, Orange Roughy, and Comrade Antoine.

He was adopted in 2000 at the age of two from the Humane Society of Madison County, Ohio. He has traveled from Ohio to Virginia to South Asia and back to Virginia.

Last year he had twelve teeth pulled by a local Reston vet and feels much better.

Tony’s hobbies include hanging out on laps and the back of the couch, and mentoring younger cats.

    “mentoring younger cats” LOL! You rock, Tony!

    OK, Tony cat. You are busted on two counts. First, you are not allowed to have a people name. Second, domesticated animals are not allowed to have more than one name at a time. Terms of endearment are OK. But one name, please. Oh, and “Comrade Antoine? Really? You’re a cat and not some secret agent or something! For gosh sakes!

      Watch out, his last name is Soprano 😉

    Tony looks like a sweet old man. At 16 he’s quite old for a cat.

    How many cats that you know have traveled to Asia and back? So he definitely has the right to whatever name he desires 🙂
