Reston Now is trying something new for the new year. We will now have pets available for adoption as our Pets of the Week. If the pets find a new home after our posting, the new owners will win prizes and treats from our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care.
This week’s Reston Pet of the week is tabby cat Bernetta. Here is what her foster parents have to say about her.
Bernetta is very cute, 1-2 year old Domestic Medium Haired orange tabby BEAUTY!
She has a huge, puffy tail that is feather-like and soooo soft! She is currently fostered with both cats and dogs — she tolerates the cats but doesn’t interact much. Sometimes she will try to play with them, but they just ignore her. She does interact with the dogs and will play with them often.
She’s very good at entertaining herself — she loves to play, is very curious and is not afraid of anything. She likes to hide and swipe at your legs and hands as you walk by to get your attention. She doesn’t use her claws, and it’s pretty cute. She usually comes when called and enjoys being petted. She does seek out attention occasionally, but she’s pretty independent. She likes to be in the same room with her people.
Bernetta doesn’t mind being picked up, but only for short periods and then she’s off to do her own thing again! Bernetta would be great for someone who wants companionship but doesn’t necessarily want a cat who will be all over them all the time, or someone who has other pets with whom she can be friends.
See more info on Bernetta on Homeward Trails Animal Rescue’s Petfinder page.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
