Reston Pets of the Week: Desmond and Sawyer

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Desmond and Sawyer, Reston residents since March 2014 and this week’s Reston Pets of the Week.

Here is what their owners have to say about them.

Desmond and Sawyer, based on our favorite characters from the TV show Lost, are twin brothers we welcomed into our home in March 2014.

We met Swayer first at a rescue event, and went on to their foster home to meet them together and spend some time with them. We fell in love, a week later, they had moved in with us and we are so happy they are part of our lives.

Desmond and Sawyer are 19-month-old gray tabbies. Both know to play fetch, and it’s the cutest thing when they bring the ball for us to throw. Our friends and family are always so surprised, cats who can fetch! Desmond loves playing fetch pretty much all day long; Sawyer only plays very late at night. Sometimes we wake up and there are multiple balls on our bed.

Desmond is the outgoing, affectionate one, he has yet to meet someone he doesn’t like. Sawyer is more selective, but a sweetheart. They both spend lots of time together, playing, sleeping, watching for squirrels, chipmunks and birds in the backyard. One of their favorite thing is sitting watching all the going-ons from the windows or our front door.
