Reston Pet of the Week: Evan TheCat

Becky's Pet Care

Meet Evan TheCat, this week’s Reston Pet of the Week. Evan is a new Reston resident as he was adopted as an adult earlier this year. Here is what owner Meggie has to say about him:

Evan was adopted earlier this year as an adult cat. His adoption profile described him as a “chunky lover boy.”

His previous owners named him ‘Evan,’ which coincidentally is the same name of his one of his new pet parents. He has been renamed “Evan TheCat” to alleviate some of the confusion but still keeps friends guessing which Evan ate the giant spider in the basement!

Evan TheCat loves being held and has never met a stranger. He watches over his pet parents at night by sleeping on their pillows and even sitting on the shower mat in the morning. After his night watch duties, he monitors the neighborhood through his second-floor window perch. When he sees his pet parents park their car, he zooms to the front door to greet them.

His new parents are very grateful that they were given the chance to adopt this lover boy as he has brought so much joy to their lives. They are working hard to remove ‘chunky’ from his description.

Congrats to Evan TheCat and Meggie, who win $100 in Becky’s Bucks, plus some treats, from our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care.
