Reston Pet of the Week: Snowball

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is a pet in need of a home. Meet Snowball, a female Maine Coon Cat who is being fostered by Homeward Trails Pet Rescue.

Here is what her foster parents have to say:

Snowball is a long-haired, Maine Coon mix girl who is about 2-3 years old.  She is incredibly beautiful, sweet, reserved kitty.

She does not seek out attention but loves to be petted, brushed, held and cuddled — she doesn’t want you to put her down!

Snowball would do best in a quieter home with someone who wants to give her the love she deserves. She is absolutely stunning with her gorgeous long white fur! Her fur will require maintenance to avoid matting.

Upon arriving at a rural shelter, she had a punctured left eye which is most probably blind now but has healed.

Read more about Snowball on her page.
